Currently running 39 pinion 96 spur on my 104, our track is a little smaller than that. I am not pushing it with temps either. So that should be a safe start.

Default lotus 107b

Back when I first started racing rc cars back in Jr high one of my first kits was a tamiya f103 with a lotus body. Had a blast with it doing parking lot racing at the old socal in garden grove and at the various hobby shack races. Even went to tamiya America in aliso vieho. Just had the kit foams and traction compound was not allowed so it did not work very good but that is a beatiful facility. Fast forward about 15 years and I once again have a f103. Scored a good deal on a 15th anniversary on eBay, few months after that an auction came along with an old f103 that included an unpainted body and full decal set for the lotus. I put a few bids in but lost the auction. I only wanted it for the body set and spare chassis parts. Then a few days later one of my fellow racers at the local track wants to show me a car he just won on eBay. Turns out he is the one who out bid me and there is the car and the much saught after lotus body set. That livery ment a lot to me since it was one of my first cars. To him it does not really matter, he just wants any body to throw on his car and was not looking forward to painting it. I offered some cash plus trade for one of my bodies and the deal was done! Now I get to race the lotus 107b again driven by Alex Zanardi! Just like 15 years ago. I am much better at putting decals on than I was back then, first race is tomorrow.

You have to try harder. I can brake stuff just by reading the manual.

You should brake for corners.

I was looking at the thread for a national points system. As usual there were several people with many many ideas and nothing getting done.

Tell me if you guys like this plan.

Considering the distance involved from one coast to another would cost a fortune. Why not take the idea of the MX series. East coast series and westcoast.You can have a champion in each. If, and I mean "IF" someone could get it together let the top X numbers duke it out in middle ground like Arkansas or any track in the middle that could hold the event. Then you would have a national champion. Just a thought. The Texas track would be a good place. I'm sure it would get the texastc seal of approval.

Brake for corners? I thought it was break in the corner. No wonder I spend so much.

I know there's the temptation to drive the nuts off these things! But driving a bit slower to look after the car will bring more fun! Than planting it into the wall.

Gotta finish first, win later!
