i've got the teeny tiny ko speedo and a regular sized spektrum receiver. i was able to strategically mount them both normally. i did have to make a little lexan belt guard for the speedo wires. everything should clear with no problems, but i wanted a little insurance if things get knocked around.

Brant, I will send you a pic of mine after I take one, since mine is on the chassis already. Will be a little later this week.

So if I broke a long arm and had to substitute with the short arms should I expect more or less traction at that end?

Well I ask because I broke a front arm yest. at a local race. The shop hosting it had no spares. They did have short graphite bk arms. Felt like it had more steering. I think this had more to do with the a change in compound and dia. foams that Hustler gave me to try. So I couldn't tell where the steering came from.

So nothing on the rubber/carpet front as far as setups yet?

Out of curiosity, slightly off-topic, but what's the body of choice for rubber/carpet these days?

Haynes should have a rubber carpet setup. He ran it at the birds.

For anyone who goes to short arm in a pinch, be sure to flip the pivot blocks around to maintain your width settings....just checking so there are no "doodeedooos"

Also, this is the setup i ran at Fastcats this past weekend, it felt really good for 19 turn and was very easy to drive but Kevin's car was probably better for mod and definetly a bit more aggressive.

Larry & Mike,

Thanks, I appreciate it. I'm feeling burned out keeping up with foams lately, and a majority of the locals have switched to rubber. Not having to stay ahead of rollout and changing ride height/droop sounds like a nice change of pace. Maybe I'll try to piece together a setup from the old car. Hopefully the one-way isn't too far off.

Yours, Kevens, and Keiths cars all looked great this weekend.

So with the cap wires coming out of the rear or bottom or back side of the board, where did you mount the cap? Don't hold out on me man!!!!
