well guys ......a quick report from vegas

After the first day of practice things are looking good for the team.

The mod guys look to be on pace in foam and I think they will be right up there in rubber also.

My car is pretty good in 13.5 rubber. My foam car is pretty good also but my foam driving still needs work....tomorrow is another day.

I'll try to give an update tomorrow also.

Dum question:when u say blades what are u guys referring to?

I looked on the Jaad site for after market spools, all i saw was tamiya parts?
Blades are the plastic half circle pieces that go on the end of the CVD and into the outdrives of the spool/diff. With the solid aluminum TC5 spool the blades have a tendency to break in a hard crash and then chew up your spool. The new R kit comes with a slipper spool which fixes that. JAAD racing makes an aluminum spool with plastic outdrives that allow you to just use the dogbones in it. The problem with it though it the plastic tends to wear out quickly and you start to get play in there. Ive tried the solid aluminum, JAAD, and slipper spool and so far Im most happy with the slipper spool (once I put a new t-bolt in it).

Is there a part number for a t-nut to suit the alloy outdrives?
I used associated part #6575

yes, the black plastic antenna mount comes with the kit and screws into the top deck.

Hey Guys - Any of you have a reference for a setup? Open Asphalt track, a little bumpy, rubber tires. Tires that seem to be working on the track are RP36. I tried the Howart setup from the Assoc site with Green springs, and the sides of the chassis rubbed in corners. Too soft.

Thanks - Mark

But if the car is hooking, then the set up is working. You can try sway bars to keep the chassis from rolling too much but that might loosen the car up a bit.

Are you running mod? The howart setup is for mod motors. For 13.5, the basic rubber setup from the manual works great. I have been using blue springs front, and silver in rear.
