Mo- PM me your address so I can send your tire warmers back. I forgot again like an idiot. I'm going to try and go to the speedworld cup. I'm looking into it.

Troy post your setups from Strickland so i can see how different mine is from yours. I need to change servos, i still can't keep it on center. found out the hard way NEVER fallow Sherif Mike too closely,right into a pipe. I even took the inside line stright into the pipe a foot away from the corner!

I have no idea as a starting point for the spur and pinion combo needed so suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I hope it's not one of these cars that can reach the ratios you need but the motor plate doesn't allow it.

Oh and can the MI2 take standard spurs such as Associated and Duratrax as I have a bunch of those?
Buy the Schumacher 83t or 86t spur and you will get teh ratio you need for 540. Or buy the gear adaptor and you can use your Kimborough etc gears but you will want to be in the 84 kind of area

Thanks UCHEATULOSE, our cars were really good at Strickland. Ed's car was really close to mine except I'm running a 2.5 chassis and tamiya shocks. From running the schuie shocks and tamiya shocks back to back on asphault I really couldn't tell a difference. But the tamiya shocks are very easy to build right out of the package where the schuie shocks take a little more work to get them smooth. Look for a new schuie shock in the hopefully near future.
I'll get you a setup tomorrow shoe, one that doesn't include shadow driving.

Hector, my car is working pretty good. I cannot make it down there on wed nights. I may be able to come down on Sunday, but whenever I come down there you guys don't run mod( has been a while). And besides that, all that will happen is I will get hacked by You. j/k

:<

Upgrade those drive axels, and put the steering limiters in... you will be good. BTW, what shock towers you running ? And get yourself one of those now famous PDub Bumpers

Sorry to be a pain guys, but I am setting up my mates mission for him. I was wondering if you could tell me where to find a general alround setup for his car, as I haven't got a clue where to look

Thanks for the help
