Harsh- That's more like it. We also were ready to drop you off a loaner body just to get some laps in...LOL I'll be up at Speedworld tomorrow most of the day setting up for the stupid strawberry festival. We have to display some motor homes for people to see.

Roger- Billy has them at Speedworld and R/C Country will have them in stock shortly.

racenut- My back up shocks and the stock one's from the kit. You're welcome to those once you get your car.

Not too well. I've been busy building the prototype monster truck. I went to Hobbyworld yesterday for a photo shoot of the monster truck and I'm not too sure if i'll be going there on sunday. I'll get in contact with you. The track is all sand

Ok I mis spoke...the lay shaft is turning slower to drive the car the same speed and this reduces friction. Phil always referred to this as a reduction in belt speed in our talks.

Interestingly enough I was talking to Mr. Hudy at the Chicago show last year and he said the new 1.75:1 Xray drive radio reduced belt speed and increased efficiency.

Default trf flourine shocks

I just ordered mine for my MI2.What piston are you guys running?2 or 3 hole? What towers come with the Kit? Do I need to order the short carpet towers or do they come with the kit?

Also what parts specifically should I order initially?c-hubs,knuckles,arms,etc?I notice on Pauls car he ran a wide bumper.Is that a schumacher part?Thanks for the help guys!

I think pretty much everyone is running the 3 hole pistons. As for extra parts, just the standard stuff. Caster blocks, steering blocks and a-arms. I'm not sure what towers come in the kits now but for rubber tires, I don't think it's a big deal either way.

Wholly crap (excuse the french), just ran my 1st pack ever on this car on a dirty track (been windy here), in backwards rotation from what I'm used to and the car is HOOKKKEEEDDD Tons of thanks to Stlnlst & Mo for their "tech support", just as an FYI I had to make the rear shocks 69mm and the fronts 67mm in order to get the droop & ride height to work with the stock "tall towers", and I was able to use my Losi springs by slipping some of the plastic shock collars in there (since they are shorter ...this was Stlnlst/Mo tip #45879 on their self help FAQ)
