do you guys really need all that weight down the side of the car? i put that much weight in the tray and the car was WAY off balance.

i did notice the car in the last picture had the stock type chassis with battery slots but i wouldn't think the solid chassis adds that much weight to the side of the car.

Thats 63 grams in the weight tray it makes the car a touch heavy on the battery side but it doesn't affect the car at all performance wise. Larry runs the TOP Side weight that weights 60 Grams and Schreff's car as well as mine have the same 63 grams in the side tray. When ever I get the TOP Side tray weight I will be going to that simply because it looks much better.

Josh Cyrul finished 2nd in the Modified class with some waaayyy cool prototype stuff.

Myself and Justin Lyons made the Trans Am "A" finishing 3rd and 9th.

Myself and Dustin Layne made the "A" in the largest class of the event (Stock TC) finishing 8th and 3rd.

Dustin Layne also made the 13.5 "A" and did so with a 17.5 motor!

All in all it was a great time with some terrific racing.

All I can say is I threw the car down and it was money first time on the track. Just wish I would of pulled my head out of my ..... for the first two amains .

It was awsome meeting all the TOP guys, and look forward to seeing you in "ARE Kansas"

It's terible, The TNT blames it to the customs but they just wait a couple of days and even months before they send it to you.
It can take up to 3 months.
The TNT is the worst company I have ever seen.

But I think it will come soon if it's not already arrived today.

I have only one complaint about the car. It's to light. I must put on a lot of weight to reach the 1350 grams

The car is fantastic.

Good job Q and gang! I watched a lot of the racing online. You guys made it look like you knew what you were doing.
