Thanx Arno!

8 Racing (Martin) has confirmed he is almost finished with the first batch of +8 chassis (Carbon Fiber). So look for Raul, Cush, and Steve to be testing them on thier cars soon.

Also look for some more Tresrey parts coming soon! Lets get these cars dialed!!!!!!

I saw that. I have track envy. Largest track in my area is 200x120. They don't run 1/10 buggies though. I might have to make a trip ..

Can't wait for the details on the +8 chassis. Would love to start running it.

Hows the driving styles from MM to RM anyone explain it well.

Next weekend will be my 2nd race on loose dirt/gravel, the first one did not go well spinning out all the time and having to drive real slow but I do want to try it again.

Heres the track that I ran on

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcKr0...eature=related

Tips.
MM battery forward or back?
RM batt F or B
Extra weight anywhere?
I have been running MM4 on med grip clay for a couple of months and can give you a few tips.

Tip 1- Don't listen to people that tell you it will never work. Try it yourself and make your own decision. If I listened to all the haters I would have never bought the Durango because I was told I wouldn't be able to get it to work at our track. Then after I did, my friends started buying them. Then I was told I couldn't get mid motor to work. Now that I clearly have gotten it to work, people are slowly changing their opinions. I'm not saying that it is better than RM, I am saying you can get it to work on med bite clay. So if you want to try it, just put your ear plugs in and go to work.

Tip 2- refer to tip 1

Tip 3- Don't take setup advise for MM on this car from people that aren't giving their own personal setup experience with running it. I have seen my own setup misquoted twice in this thread by others.

PM me for help if you want it.

What did you break? Did you have parts? I saw maybe 2 other Dango's there. Wonder which was yours. Don't hesitate to see me if you ever need some help if we're ever at the same track. Mod was tough class to be in. I normally don't run stock, but being away for almost 6 mo. I figured stock would be good to knock some rust off. Clearing those 1/8 jumps was brutal! I saw more broken B4's than anything else! Lol.

I was running a finnisher body... Orange blue white and yellow.... Couldn't miss it. I was hitting those big jumps very aggressive. Nothing actually broke but popped off.... Rear ball cups and actually popped both rear lower shocks at the same time.

We are very excited about this new chassis. With two identical cars Cush will be able to run back to back on our indoor and outdoor tracks for instant feedback on the chassis alone, then we'll begin tuning the long chassis. Thus far no adjustments have been necessary except for tires and gearing on his outdoor buggy, but our outdoor has been very smooth with great traction. He was able to get a very nice TQ and win club racing this past Saturday with it and the buggy was great all day.
