Say, anyone heard from Art Jensen in the past 4-5 days? Is he out of town/sick/???
I've sent him a couple of emails and haven't heard back in a few days now... just wondering!

Thanks!

He hangs out in the BMI group pretty regularly. You might catch him there.

Thanks John/MO,

Do you guys recommend that chassis or should i wait on a BMI? I just want to know because i got a chassis off of art and its OTC (off the chain). So i want one for my mission. Hopefully it will fix my mi 1 issues which i think is due to tweaking :-(

Mo- do you run it on asphalt or just carpet? I was thinking about trying one on the outdoor asphalt tracks around here to see how it works.

That's the chassis that I had on my car when I was down there. It works great on asphalt.

Thanks Clint. I may try it. That's one of the few things I haven't played with yet

Nice choice hogdaddy. The car goes together pretty straightforward. The only spots you may have a little work to do on is the outter hinge pins. Some of them are a little tight. Also, take your time with the shocks and make sure you clean all the flashing off and soak the foam rings before trying to get them over the spindle or you may rip them. Did you get any hop-ups with the car or just the kit? Now get that term paper done and get the car ready for some carpet racing this weekend in Stockton!

Not really any hop-ups you have to get, especially for asphalt. I would get the gear adapter, so you can run whatever spur you want and probably the steel cvd's for the front, especially at SWR. Go with 40wt oil in front and 30wt in rear (3 holes open on piston), 3 degrees rear toe, front shocks layed all the way down and the rest as the book says to build. That should be a pretty good starting point. After you run the car a few times and want to experiment, we have many setups posted on www.gearchart.com or my site, www.mo-net.ws

I don't know if Billy has the solid spools in. If not, all you have to do to make the diff into a spool is take the diff balls out and glue and cut to fit, a header card or business card to the diff rings and reinstall with the card towards the diff gear.

I have a teemu chassis for my MI2 and it works great. Now i'm looking for a tweaking solution for my original mission. Superior has a warpspeed chassis available for the mission and i'm thinking on getting that. Anyone here have any experience with the warpspeed chassis? If what i heard is tru the chassis i just thicker and has the battery slots 5 mils forward. I though moving the batteries would have been a better idea but if you guys have good things to say i think i will invest the $$$ in the chassis.
