This is what I have managed for my 1st Attempt but I am not really happy with the location of the power cap and the cables over the motor, dont really want it to overheat.

I hope to get a brushless motor soon just havnt decided on what one yet?

Man, you guys sure are sneaky.

Grind away! I've broken the solder joints inside that battery once already from playing pinball with the car and the case is looking pretty rough from banging against the pinion.

I probably wouldn't have noticed the case mod, but would have seen the track rod change and wondered how you made the magic happen.

The things I hate most about coming to the corporate orifices for meetings... Seattle weather, and being two hours behind on the body clock.

I've been up since 3:30 and the beatings don't begin until 9:00.

What with me getting close to old codger status, I'll probably be ready for bed by 8:30 which doesn't even give enough time to get a good drunk on to sully myself and go on braindead/autopilot for the rest of the week.

I've decided I just need to win the lottery and put this whole 'work' business behind me. It's just no fun. I'd rather be racing.

After some of the grief I have had trying to convert spring rates etc. then forgetting how when in the actual shop, I have made a spreadsheet for 'quick reference'.

It doesn't contain any manufacturer or colour information, just the rates in lbs/inch and gf/mm.

Hope its of some use
