It looks like UF1Houston had a hell of day.




Yes, Iím going for a bit more steering. Iím basing this off a friends set up for his X1 and now his vir2. He likes the additional steering this set up generates. Weíll see if I like it. I can always change it to something else.
With the lipo forward what camber/toe are you running?

Dang it! Could not tell when he actually snapped the shot. It was a great day though and a roller coaster of emotion. Raining when we get there. All the effort to dry the track when the rain stopped. A little more rain when the track is almost ready. Then the sun breaks out and with all the effort and suger grip is great. Just enough time in the sun to get qualifying and mains. Then another storm rolls in! At least we got some great racing in!

Looks like you guys got it going on in Houston UF1 style! How did the pit stops work out for you?

The pits went great! There were some questions and uncertainty in the drivers meeting, but once we got rolling it was no sweat. Lots of fun and strategy.




by the way here's some boring, unedited, in-car video of the track. All that warping is from youtube's vibration reduction post processing. it's kinda wierd, sorry. I also, took it kinda easy on the laps... but I'm posting it anyway.

be sure to watch it in HD.
