tonight was fun. Too bad the main had a sour note to it. I won't go into details about it.

racenut- Good run tonight. We do have these cars dialed. What body were you running? Dujuan had the Mazda 6 and I was using the Losi Alpha.
I also ended up switching back to the stock hubs. They felt better on the low grip surface.

It's nothing that I will post on the message boards. I'll see you at the track next weekend and fill you in.

We have the cars dialed. The correct tires were the ticket last night. I had take off 27's with tire warmers which were okay but the guys with take off 22's were on fire. The traction wasn't as high as it was the last time we were down there but we worked around it.

Congrats on buying your first new part for the MI2 last night. You looked so happy once you had a few spares...LOL We need to repeat lastnight performance next weekend and finish 1, 2, and 3. Alex is the only Yokomo to worry about and Tk will be the only Losi to worry about unless Ryan, and Brad come out.

Can someone help me out with setup suggestions? My Mi2 is still stock, I use the orion 19t spec motor. I just bash around right now but I'll be getting to a proper track in due time. Mainly I want some suggestions for tight, mid-low traction asphalt. I just need some basic suggestions to point me in the right direction so that I can fine tune from there.

The Flash- best place to start is the paul wynn setup from the Roar Nats that is a great setup to start out with.

Thanks. Another question, do you guys protect your underbody at all? I make sure the track surface is clean before I run my car but I'm pretty scared of scarring the beautiful CF weave. My friend told me there is a clear polycarb or lexan adhesive I can apply but I haven't been able to find something like that.

PW was flying this weekend. He qualified 3rd behind Masami and Surikarn. Tosolini, Easton, Hara and a bunch more very fast drivers were behind him. The mains were rained out so thats how they called it.

It took a while for the track to develop grip...it was pressure washed by 150mph+ winds It was fine by Saturday.


The driver stand was good to go...just no loger has a top on it.
