I have been using the plastic CVA shocks and been happy with them. My car performs as well or even better than my co racers who use the TRF shocks. However I have noticed that they need reoiling more often than the TRF shocks on my touring car.
thanks.

I checked tower but didnt find them under a Tamiya search.

Try this set up on your mini I run this at socal and with a few minor adjustments from time to time my car is dialed
That's a very good baseline setup- nice of you to share. X-Patterns are a pretty forgiving tire, however, so that setup would change somewhat if using Tamiya tires.

Are you going to the Mini Mayhem race in Milwaukee, Brandon?

I am not sure yet I want to really bad but my schedule hasn't called me to let me know if I can go or not.

Did you like my post on silver can tricks.

Yes I have multiple pictures with her.

Now that you mention it publiclly, How I'm a has been and all It makes me really want to think hard about retirement.

But with that said, I was the 2nd of a possible 6 people to win TCS nats twice in the same class. So I'm pround to be a two timer, weather I'm a washed up has been or not!

I just hope one day we will have the oppritunity to Go head to head wouldn't that be a blast! (even if I was to loose, yeah right)

All in all at the end over everyday it is all about having fun. I know I am, are you?
