I run the warpspeed chassis on asphalt and have good with it here in florida. Infact it is a p-dub designed chassis. It has alot of testing and designing by schumacher drivers. I dont think there is a concern with the thickness it all depends on you driving style!

Its worth the money either the p-dub chassis or the warpspeed version.!!
OH so its p-dub's design! Well why didnt you guys just say that!!!!! ;-)

If you get the puple closing for the sschumacher shocks there are a set of fomaies in there. that would save you the cost of the shocks plus you'll have some nice looking inclosers that supposedly are leak proof!

Part No: U1818

FYI: When your assemble the shocks; if you take the foams and squeez them into a little ball as small as you can and then submerge them into the oil, when you let them go this will suck up as much oil as humanly possible and you dont have to soak them as long. Its a bit messy as you will get oil on your hands but its works for impatient people like myself. LOL

Default Braking issues

Does anyone have a Novak GT7/Futuba 3pk combo. I'm trying to dial in some more breaking and just cant seem to get the car to stop as quick as i want it to. If you are familiar with either of these pieces of equipment question: Does turning the ABP under the ABS breaking turn offf ABS thus giving more break power rather than pulsing? Or do i have this backwords? Any help would be appreciated.

The car was dialed yesterday for me on the rug. Ran a different Mo set up and it was very drivable and fast. A couple of more times out and I'll be right where I need to be on foams. This car is killer.
