You will be the fastest guys to 8th in the B Main ever!! Awesome

The semi-painted East Coast body looks slick even though you chose taupe for a color.

It's not Taupe...its Pearl Purple with a silver backing....which makes it "pinurplesque"

Taupe......I question you man

"DESERT ROSE" all the way baby!


I'm occasionally asked if Adam is "manly enough" to truly pull off his paint scheme.






Unfortunately the answer is still no...

Hey guys, do you fret over balancing your cars? I do
I use the four scale method and balancing the car yesterday, here's the numbers-

Left side
LF- 350g/ LR- 333g = 683grams

Right side
RF- 341g/ RR- 345g = 686grams

Cross weights (L-R)
LF- 350g/ RR- 345g = 695grams

Cross weights (R-L)
RF- 341g/ LR- 333g =674grams

Front to Rear %'s
LF (350g) + RF (341g) = 691grams - 50.5%

LR (333g) + RR (345g) = 678grams - 49.5%

Overall, I'm happy how it turned out but I'm not satisfied with the Cross weights. I got some more work to do.
Any suggestions?

You guys are funny as hell man.

Funny in a "ha...ha..." way, not funny in a 'I wonder about all that pink' way.

The BL motor are lighter than BR motors. This is why your left rear is light. Add some weight right behind the motor.

You need to play with your electronics placement if you can and if you are under weight add weight to the rear. The Mi3 should have a .5% to .8% weight bias to the rear. This is the ideal F/R bias in a 4wd sedan.
