Are you So-Cal guys going to come up north to Stockton for the Region 12 Carpet Champs this year? It's November 5th, 6th, and 7th. The 5th is just a practice day though. www.stocktonrcraceway.com

I know Randy will want to. I'll have to see what the $$$ situation is around then. I'd like to. But I've never run on carpet. I don't know that a ROAR Regionals is the bast place to learn how to drive on carpet.

If you run stock or 19 turn (both are rubber classes) it's not really any different that high bite asphalt. I'm sure you would do just fine.

I won't run stock but I'd be willing to run 19 turn rubber. I'll see if I can swing it. I'd like to come up there.

Randy, here's some other pic of an installed Teemu Chassis.

Really nice chassis...much stiffer than standard, and beutifully balanced..
with my setup, I rebalanced it on the weekend, and only 10 grams needed on the electronics side to balance...I added a further 45 grams to bring it up to weight (split 50/50 L/R).

Nice pics, thanks Gavin. I'm gonna definately run the Teemu chassis over the stock one.

Just got through rebuilding the diffs and cvd's, absolutely no slop in these CVD's, Im very impressed.

Default Some Pics of my car

Hey guys,

Just at home and thought I would post some pics of my car. Few options as I just have to get new stuff! Whether it makes me faster or not. This is the Teemu chassis with low shock towers and riser plates.

Enjoy!

these were of the first pre production cars, proved to be too costly and tricky for full production kits, ..

would be sweet as an option part though...

Putnam your car has so much razzle, I can't look at it without my shades

The first 10 Mi2's ever made had those bulkheads. You are a very special person if you have one as they will never be made again. They were way too expensive for mass production.

King-G - You gotta try the Mi2 with out the raised stuff and Teemu towers. We tried it all back to back and all that stuff did nothing. Teemu was faster at the preworlds with PW's car with all that taken off than with his own car.
