For anyone still waiting for their kit, you might want to try this place.

http://www.activepowersports.com/hot...kit-hbs112723/

I went through to the checkout portion and it never said it was out of stock. Might be worth calling to verify they do have it in stock.

Hey Jason, are you just drilling the pistons or are you using a different piston all together? Thanks.

Hey Matt,,,,totally dig the blue voodoo!!!
do you have other vehicles with your signature paint? my paint guy Neil at EclipseRc.com asks me every time if I want something different, I can't do it it, has to be the same for all LOL![IMG][/IMG]

I start mid pack, end up leading the race, then catch a pipe to end up with 2nd place.

Watch closely at the 8min 39sec mark. You'll see the Durango get it's steer tire ripped off the car when he hits my D413. It's possible this may have just been coincidence

You will see :

1- Durango Red/Yellow

1- 22-4 solid yellow

1 - XRay purple/green

1 - D413 white/blue My car

1 - D413 solid white (evolution03)

1 - XRay green/black

This may of been covered already but what are you guys doing to take up the slop in the steering akerman bar. Seems to be pretty sloppy. I assume a thin shim will do the trick but wanted to ask. Thanks.

Yeah, I have several vertebrae that get miss aligned quite a bit. Started with a dislocated hip a couple years ago. I'm pretty sure I've paid for the new Mercedes that my chiropractor's wife drivers.

Drilling blanks. Careful not to drill to far in. The spacers will cover the holes if not careful
