That is a very good price.

Looking at the results from day 1 it looks like Craig has the car in 4th for 19 turn and 9th in mod. Looking at the lap times, it seems like everyone and I mean everyone is right there no matter what car they are driving. It just seems like 1 or 2 small bobbles will put you in towards the back of the B.

That's about right. All the guys are right on pace...it's all about putting in a run. We have Drescher, Levanen, Hohwart, Henderson, Myrberg and Desrosiers running the car in TC Mod and 19T. Bob is the only one running it in Stock Foam and Brandon Melton is running it in 19T Rubber and Stock Rubber.

We've had some bad luck overall with cars flying into ours and causing wrecks combined with Joel getting hit at the end of the straight-a-way by a marshal jumping across the track. All in all the guys are running very well, but it's a tough, tight field. We'll have to see how things play out over the next few days. You can keep up on www.snowbirdnationals.com

Default The hinge pin screws are on the inside of the bulkheads?

$20 bucks says the hinge pin blocks with break like eggs. It looks like a flush nut. It's hard to see, but there's a lot of stress on the hinge pin blocks. I still see no reason to buy one when you can get muti-flex design and better part material. I question the arm strength as well. Way to force feed your customers.

Being a religious person I am sure you know the expression...

If you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all...


This is not a tool on the TC5 thread!!!

By the way... I will take your bet!!!

I am a Christian and I find it disappointing when I see some one that calls them sell a Christian and is obviously trying to preach to others behave in a way that makes the very people he is trying to save think less of him and his faith.

If you are going to post foolish post that you have no true knowledge about becyase you have not personally run the car please change your avatar and your signature.

FYI, I know a few of Xray's top Factory drivers and the chassis they run have the mulit-flex slots ommitted. They say all it does is make the car easier to tweak if you hit somthing. Thats the facts from 2 Xray Pro Mod A-Main driver I have known for years.

If that price is right, this is going to be a very competitively priced kit when it's all said on done.
