I hope the new belts are as good as the old ones. I stripped my first belt at the nats two weeks ago, thats more than 6 months of racing week in week out on the original kit set.

I do not have an original 416 here now to compare with but I believe any of the parts should fit without any problems.

What's up guys, sorry I haven't been too active on here, just been busy as of late.

I've been running the 416 and have had some good success with it so far, and the worlds kit should be in hand shortly so I'll be able to give some input with that as well.

I'm going to run at the Tamiya America track this weekend, I've got the car dialed on a small track, but this will be the test as to how my setup will work on a big track now.

I've got some good wheel time on the car now, it is awesome at BCR, and I'm sure by the end of the day on Sat, it will be dialed at the Tamiya track too, lol

Hey Randy, good to hear from you. Would be great to see your small track setup. CraigM and I run on a smallish track and while our cars go well, they can always be better! Cheers.

Where were you last night vinny? I could have used some blue team back up from the Corally hoard - Ari and Jake raced superstock and both did 20 lap qualifiers

Randy it'd be really cool to see your setups, we can get the geometry tips from pics of the pros but shock setup is a mystery

Sorry mate. Had a birthday dinner so couldn't make it. And I was itching to have a run too! Man that must have been some serious 10.5 action with Ari and Jake there. Did you manage to sneak a 20 lapper in?
