So what are the preferred front end hopups for the tamiya front end? I have the exotek top links but is there any other stuff that people are running

Most people run them pretty much stock. Maybe pick up a set of front tuning springs and, if you don't have one yet, an aluminum camber plate. Repeated crashes can stretch the holes in the plastic plate. Plus the aluminum looks cool. That alone is worth a couple tenths per lap!

Vettel got screwed. Penalized because he was 'off-track' to make the pass, yet Button was on the gator-teeth. Where was he supposed to be? Vettel's off-track adventure was used to 'gain an advantage'...yet Alonso was off track 2 times during qualifying to set the fastest lap? Isn't that the same 'advantage' over the field?

On the plus side, that puts Lotus in 3rd and a podium, so I'm ok with it

Good point, it seams that when your side by side it's considered a penalty. Never the less I'm stoked with how well the Mexican kid did along with his team mate.Go team Sauber.

Hahaha, had to bust yer chops since we've had a few "other" F1 noobs get excited over the real racin and come here and chat up the results before we could watch.
Funny cuz it always seems TCS is racin when F1 or Indy 500 or something we want to watch later is goin on so we're tryin not to hear those results.
I still didn't get to watch the German Gran Prix yet, tomorrow for sure.

Great F1 racing in Camarillo yesterday... I got to play with my new toy, belt drive FGX... drives so nice... My great acomplishment for the day was Dave Berger didn't lap me in the mains ...

Sounds like a lot of people are going to TQ next Sunday... should be fun...

General question for those of you who made the test and tune day at SpeedTech...

How many laps do you think the average car will turn in 10 minutes on that course?

Count me in I want to test out the new hardware online. Offline it's amazing. Not sure if it will help me any against you sharks

GT5 Monday was fun. The Tesla was a joy to drive and looking at Redbull Fixx in my rear view mirror was pure joy I'm sure that won't last long. LOL
