Masters class
first round TQ,
1st in A-1
5th in A-2 (hack fest)
2nd in A-3

2nd overall 2007 Roar Masters class.


I've had the car for two weeks now and love it. it was actually to stuck, with a little advise from randy and a switch to the DNA-1 body, it was perfect, i also used the oneway instead of a spool. #1 in masters also used a oneway.

Thanks guys! Kinda sucks it took me so long to figure out a good setup, but glad I did before qualifying was over and managed to at least make the main in 19 turn. Definately feel like I had an A-Main mod car if I would have landed the setup sooner.. oh well.

Good job Randy. Dont forget to post your set up ASAP. That track was small and tight, and cool temped....very different set up needed compared to the larger, a bit more open and hot weather RROC and others...I'm sure you needed more turn in...did you use 2 deg caster blocks? Outboard toe out? How did you get it to turn so sharply?

Well I just got home, and I did make a setup sheet at the track, however it was in the luggage that they forgot to put on the plane Pretty lame, Josh Numan, his girlfriend, and myself all took the same plane and each checked 2 bags, they forgot to load one of each of our bags. Once the bags get delivered I'll give PDub my setup to put on the website. My origional setup was set to have a ton of turn-in, but for the last day of qualifying when I realized I needed something different, I went to my RROC setup with much better results Some things are changed but it's close.
