I am racing rubber carpet this weekend at Minnreg in Largo, FL along with the rest of Team Schu's FL racers. We should have some good setups next Monday.

PDub will probably do some Mod Foam testing there too.

hey got a question where u get the cf stickers?
also how u get your chassis and shock towers edges so round and shiny? any tips?

a question for every one with the mi2 ec in board hinge blocks i put my hinge pins and arms on then tightened them to the chassis then when i went to add the wheel base clips the hinge pin bound up.
so how do u install the inner hinge pins so the don't bind up?
if it matters i find the newer stainless pins don't bind as easily why is this?
cheers guys

I was talking to Jason at BMi today about how tore up some people's cars look. These same people always have mechanical failures and dumb stuff go wrong hurting thier results.

I am just an OK driver but my cars aew always dialed and super fast. This gets me better results than my driving alone can muster.
