Way to go Haynes. Had a pretty good weekend at Cleveland. 2 seconds and a 4th. Probably the only Type R in the field. Way to go. Anther great showing for the Type R.

Never heard of anybody running on a linoleum floor. Might have to figure that out on your own. If you are in need of any suggestions ley us know where you are at with your setup and what you need to car to do. This is one of the most helpful thread on tech.

Not sure about Larry but I know Schreff couldn't leave the turkey alone. Food > racing.

LOL... Thanks Mike! Oh, and there's that little thing called work that got in the way as well.

Thanks guys, my cars were pretty good, i was very happy with the foam runs, mis judged the track a bit for the mains, and ended up with a lot of push, so the sweeper was a killer. Rubber i had the tq, but the race wasn't so great in terms of my car staying on the track...oh well on to the next one.

For those interested, played with a spool setup for rubber this race, il post it up.

Morris, usually just loosen the upper deck and flatten the chassis on a board, hold and tighten,

What was your overall judgement of the spool? Was the track tight enough for it? Last I ran I started with the spool but went back to the oneway due to being a wide open layout. What would you compare the Zenon 28's to? the sorex, Jaco's, rp's? Any how congrats on another good run. Was there any other R's in the field?

That is a HUGE wing! Is that meet legal dimensions?

You can never seem to go wrong with a Mazda 6 or a Speed 6.

that wing is like 6 inches above the roof line so I don't think it would be ROAR legal unless it's cut way down. I don't think I've ever seen a club race tech for wing height though.
