Wait till you have to remove the pinion just to tighten up the motor screws and hopefully not move the motor in the process.

Oh I called last week to put my name on a car. You are sending it out the LIFO process, right?

Maybe a chance to see what the team drivers are running as far as setup..
Adrian, Jason, any other team guys...
Just wondering what setups are working where...
Asphalt and Carpet...
If that is alright with you guys...

Right now I am running High Bit Asphalt and wanted to know which tires are working...I have a few selections but here is what I am trying right now...

Front.
.20 springs
5000 wt on kingpins
10* caster blocks
Arms centered on blocks
Pink CRC pro cuts

Center
AE 30wt oil
copper spring
no shim under ball stud
Batteries Centered

Rear
Diff tight backed out 3/4 turn
5000wt on links
.75 L plates
Rear Pod level-.5mm droop
Double Pink CRC pro cuts

Am I missing anything???????????

Personally if you were getting enough traction with the softer tire and 1/3rd to 1/2 traction compound coating I'd try a harder tire with a full width compound coating.

i run 2x pink in the front and rear on asphalt.i have never been a fan of the purple fronts.i am going to be trying the lilac fronts on my next outing.i think they are going to be real good.the rest of the setup looks good bro.the only other thing you should do is try a IRS medium ballstud for the shock mount on the antenna mount.i really liked the on power steering i gained from it.
