Ok, so I took the car apart today again after some punishing race last night at Socal. The car was awesome! by far the fastest car I have yet! those ceramic balls are like butter smooth. The car with its double one way had mucho cornering speed and just wooooooosh into and out of a corner. I had to readjust my driving style just to compensate by shooting into a turn that counter and center almost within instances because it took the corner way fast and precise! Man! I'm in love with this thing! LOL
Had a full set of squat racing dry bearings to be installed tomorrow so its cleaning time tonight. Stevetech RC was awesome and had everything I needed this afternoon. Went and spent some dough and got some gears, harden long-spans arms, diff rebuilt kits, etc. On my way out, I almost forgot what I went there for so I turned back and got a robinson racing machined spur, and some TAMIYA GLASS TAPES. I think I took it all just in case. LOL.
The race last night wasn't pretty though. Came in 5th on the first heat started from 10th place, then second heat, started 1st and ended first, lapped everyone by the fourth lap! then by the 8th lap had a two lap lead.
yet got hung teeter totting over a dot while the idiot marshall was there picking his nose three feet away from my car for 5 full seconds. Got place back on track and continued and still got 1st but didn't TQ thanks to the nose picka! sheesh! Main was a different story. Had second place start so I got overly confident knowing I'll blow pass the lead car in two laps, as soon as I took the second turn, a car jumped track and slam into me and took me totally out. I meant! "NO STEERING, NO THROTTLE, NO POWER! OUT!". The turn marshall had no time picking up my car this time, DAMN!
, I thought my speedo was gone since I wasn't getting anything. Turns out one of the battery brace was knocked loose. What a shame on my part. I should of taken my time like RBF said...*sigh*
oh well, I'm in love with this car now. Wouldn't want to divorce her anytime soon.
