Thanks to the generosity of guys on this board, looks like I will be racing this Saturday. Thanks guys...

And thanks for the tip about taking the screws out. I'll give it a try. I drifted wide coming out of a corner and rubbed up against a board, and it broke the rear pivot blocks. Might have caught a seam between two boards...my fault for sloppy driving, not the cars. As soon as I can get some I am going to the alloy blocks...

STLNLST - If you get a good Tekin setup for 17.5, and if you're willing to share I'd love to see it. Mine's OK, but I'm thinking I don't like the 0.5 delay on the turbo. When I pull WOT, I don't want to have to wait for the car to go. May try bringing the delay way down, but that may result in too much use of turbo and overheating...

Anyway, take care..

make sure your axle threads aren't sticking out past the wheelnut, this can grab the boards and break parts a lot easier.

Mark, what 17.5 are you running and what is the size of the track? And I guess it is outdoors. I will get the blocks in the mail for you this afternoon. I'm getting ready to get into a meeting that lastest for 2 hours.

This stock crap is so stupid. Ive given up on it. I dont want to even run 13.5 anymore. I will go run my blitz somewhere if I cant run mod that weekend lol. Mod is soooo much more fun, and all I worry about is my driving. Not messing with gearing and turbo and all that BS. I wonder how much farther this is going to go?

I'm in a bit of pitch and was wondering if anyone has had any luck using a axle blade cushion from another manufacture. I'm using what comes stock on a MI4LP as far as axles/spool goes. No wear in 17.5, but I have been running 13.5 for 2 days and both front cushions cracked

Normally I would just order and wait, but I've got my local track to practice on Thursday and don't want to miss out on some more time with the car. I want to try some more things out before Snowbirds.

Thanks in advance.

Hey BOR, clint aint lieing about the new software as it is nutz. 13.5 is way faster than it was a few weeks ago. Last time at amain I saw a 17.5 blow by a 13.5 like it was standing still. You just know you want a Tekin!
