I did mine in about 16-20 hours. I went nice and slow to make sure I didn't screw up. I'm still waiting for one shock body to come in the mail but I consider the car done. It's not difficult at all, the manual is very well thought out. The only thing I needed that wasn't included was a 5.5mm socket and CA glue.

Tony....We only received a few pairs of hubs on our first order, more are on the way next week. The european market got most of the first run

The rear hub gives more adjustability for various track conditions.

racing was good today. Drilling the piston out to 56 didn't make that big of a difference. I ran Mo's standard set up with the piston change. The car felt great. I also tested the new caddy body and it's slightly better than the Mazda 6 which we also ran back to back with lap times today. All of the bodies had the same laptimes but the car felt overall better with the stratus. This car seems pretty much bullet proff as I did have some terrible crashes today and the only broken part was a front castor block. Next weekend will be a parking lot race sprayed with VHT. The spool was faster than the oneway today but I didn't want to switch to the spool today. Mo did the spool testing.

PW- I'll give you a call on Monday.

I'm really considering putting it in for next weekend's race. Mo also said that the car was easier to drive compared to a oneway. I just hate the tire wear I was getting with the spool installed.

We got rained out hard core today. One qualifier and the skies opened up.

PW - I didn't think my stuff got all that wet until I unpacked it all. I hope you stopped by work and spread it all out to dry.

Whats worse was that in the only qualifier that I got to run a guy that didnt make it to the start due to glitching took it upon himself to change frequencies with out checking the heat sheet....to my frequency...tuning left into the wall on the straight with an 8x2 is not good
