Yeah but to much droop is to be expected, at least that's what Marker said




OH SNAP!

See, this is a perfect example of how even we in the office (or still working near midnight) ALSO get driven nucking futz by waiting for Speed Passion BL, an 80mph out of the box RTR car, and CORE lipos to show up all in the same week...

We're reduced to commenting on each other's degree of droop online...

We're just as RC silly as all of you guys are 'till the goods come in, then it's time to open up a can and get serious. Go to sleep Adam, we've potentially got a big day tomorrow.

These sound weird to non-r/c people:

My shaft has a lot of rebound.

I really like Schumacher Ball-Grippas. They snap on tight and will rip a ball off before they pop off.

I like to paint my body with water based acrylics.

I hit it pretty hard and now it's tweaked, it wont go straight.

I really think it depends on what your riding/racing and the conditions of the track for the amount of droop needed. If the course to wide open and slippery and you need more traction - I run more droop. If the course is tight and high traction I run less droop. And then again I use a different amount of droop when I use rubbers. So it really depends!!

Thanks buddy The car feels friggin' awesome and has been for a coupla months now. The ideas Brett has been working on, which I have a couple on my car- just plain out WORKS. The change I made to the lowered shock towers today didn't really make the car better per se but more or less 'enhanced' the feeling that was already there (likewise the Mazda S6 wing on the DNA1). The biggest thing I played with tonight was sauce & droop. I liked the 5 or 6 passes we made on eachother in like 4 corners! Awesome!!
Car is fast & furious...see ya tomorrow

BTW Shawn everyone thinks I'm running a 'cheater' motor...that's all your fault!!

JB you kinda are in sense that everyone makes a 10.5, and that has become the "standard" and even if the motors were rated exactly the same with a different decal you'd still be labeled as the cheater



Just admit you have a cheating problem
