i know i had over jumped a small jump to flat to cut a corner off, as its the faster line.
Just trying to decide if i should cut the droop stops off the front or not?
I've never had that happen, and I've over jumped plenty of times. Sounds like bad luck.

The carbon chassis are a direct replacement for the aluminium ones, if you get the +8 there are a couple spacers that fill the gap between the guards/servo mount.

I noticed it sunday, the car was hooked up and then all the sudden it got really loose under accelleration every now and then. when i picked it up in the 3rd round it was packed full.

Contact Hobbico. I did, told them I could not find parts, and they sent me what I needed, no charge.

I'm running 69/34. Worked great on a medium to small indoor track with a tight layout, but I was a little behind on a larger outdoor track. Nismomike was running 69/35 with great success at the same outdoor track. We raced in the evening. I barely broke 100 degrees with 69/34 so I could probably go up a tooth.

If you are saying I would be impressed with the lighter weight, are you talking carbon? Which one? If it's Tresrey, I can't do it. They treated me wrong, so I don't purchase their products.
