Also if anyone is interested my Set-up from the event is posted on my website and will soon be on the team-durago website as well.
Anyone else having issues with the PDF. I can only get partial info plus its showing gear diff and 4 gear rear.

Yep, we can definitely slide a few your way Mike. I'll be at the Farm on Thursday. And hopefully SRS on Wednesday.

He wasn't on the Invite list this year for some reason.........so he ran in the open class.

Ryan had to run Open as the Reedy race didn't recognize the SC National result since this is 2wd and 4wd buggy only.

Ryan's car was fast even with the short chassis. Ryan had a few bad luck incidents and a mistake or two but the speed he's shown in the 2wd class is pretty awesome. Understand this is his ONLY 2wd car in the stable.

I spoke with Ryan earlier and we sorted out his PDF issues. He'll be correcting the sheets shortly.

Set-up sheet is now correct on my website. Got both the 210 and 410 set-ups on there. So sorry for the issues everyone. It turned out to be a multitude of things on my end with the final issue being trying to do it in Safari instead of firefox.. Bloody Technology! haha

Anyways shouldn't have issues anymore. Learned a lot today!

As for why I wasn't in the Invite class it basically boils down to I didn't race much electric last year or in the past so I didn't meet the 'qualifications' for the event. You can be sure though that I will qualify for it for next year and will be in the mix! This year it just gave me some good practice for our ROAR Nationals which will be held at the same track. So many fast locals there too!!

Couple questions for ya, if you don't mind.

1. it says on your setup sheet you are running 4 gear MM... but it looks like 3 gear RM from pictures?

2. it says you are running 3mm inner camber link spacers on the front, but pictures show 2?

This is a common issue with the setup PDF. I've never seen one that wasn't switched on motor position.

1. Should be fixed. Might have been an oversight by me sense I had to refill out my set-up sheet 4 times for each car today! Got a bit tiring! ;-)

2. Well now that I measure it again it looks like my shim is actually about 2.7mm but I believe it is a 3mm shim under my front inner camber link.
