I haven't posted in a while. I just wanted to come on and say how crazy dialed my car is. I ran it at a local club race yesterday and it was so smooth and easy to drive. It hugged the sweeper tight and carried awesome corner speed. I love the Red too? Great car

Nothing to brag about but I did manage to make our Regional race and with no practice and essentially a new car from the chassis up. I pulled out the win in 13.5 rubber by a lap on the field! Big big thanks to Jason for the last minute help with both the car and the new Tekin software!

I can't wait till the summer starts. I have 1 race indoor to go but I want to race on tarmac again.

I'm now testing some motors.
I want a Nemesis and A Tekin motor. The Tekin motor looks good in the TOP.
How is the medium rubber top plate doing?
I have a rubber kit and I'm thinking of the rubber medium top plate for a bit more stiffness.
I found a lot of steer in the last race and I hope I will have it also on the Tarmac. I'm going to drive with a similar setup and the Solaris tires.
I will try the medium and the hard tires.
The hard for the warm wetter and the medium for the cold days.
