Im not sure. We were not pushing for this race because it was too close to the release date. We will be building a strong team for the snowbirds. We needed the time to get the team more familiar with the car. Come snowbirds time, You will be seeing some results.

Too bad Snowbird is on opposite surface of Earth (means 20+hrs flight time), otherwise I would love to attend..

Not a problem buddy. We have what i believe is the best car. Now i just need to get it in the hands of the best drivers so i can prove it.
Alot of the cars out there do well at the big races because of who is wheeling the car. Once we accomplish that, The competition is in deep trouble. I am working on making this happen

Hey guys,

I forgot to tell you,the new front ride height adjusters are in stock and ready for shipment. The rear axle shims will be in stock on tuesday. These are the shims that will eliminate the need for washers on the axle. 1 on each side will bring you right to 172mm. They will be high finish aluminum spacers. It will give you the bling without the agrivating task of setting the track width and centering the axle. Now it will be done without any thinking

Only had two runs using same motor (unskimmed) & tyre type and,

Single lap faster by 1.17s
Average lap down by 1.057s

Unbelievable the way the car corners with speed.

Only place I seemed to struggle was in the switch backs (left/right/left) were the car was to responsive. Maybe addy & or servo KO949. (Usually run a Sanwa 141)

Tried the olive spring to gain a bit more rear end.
Car seemed to be skipping a lot under power on the rear.

Body: Hot Bodies Ferrari (used as I like it and didn’t have a Parma ready)
Tire Compounds: BRM Purple/Grey = f 44mm r52mm
CS High Grip Tyre Additive : Full front & Rear (like to do full front to help keep tyre wear even)

Caster: Middle
Camber: set to run foams square
Ride Height: 3.5mm
Toe: zero
Front Track: no shims on axles
Front Spring: .020”
Front Preload/Droop: No Preload/very little
King Pin Damping: none (don’t like to do it)
Servo Mounting: Angled
Shock Length/Pod Droop: 2.6” (66mm)/.060 (1.5mm)
Shock Angle: Med IRS ball stud on AE Ant-Shock mount
Shock Spring: AE gold / AE Olive
Shock Oil: 35wt
Side Damper Oil: 100wt shock oil (no heavier oils)
Flex Plates: .070”
Flex plate preload screws: Not installed
Rear Body Mounts: To the rear
Rear Track: 172mm

Quickest lap by a brushless was 14.39s and this guy makes the A @ the UK nationals, got the proof as he ran my PT in his car. Another brushless turned a 14.62s lap I recall. (Both running the V-Design chassis)

I was running 19t brushed so well please with lap time v the brushless motors
