My cousin dated him when they were still a small band out of Poway. She broke it off when he went on tour the first time.

I think they are sold under the PW line as "GOOD N PLENTY". The white RPM ballcups with the purple schumacher color works nicely.

They're just RPM ball cups. You can get white, black like I use, purple, etc...

HEy guy's the car hanled great today. The car was orignally use for carpet. So I had to lots of changes. I've alway been a d or e main driver. Today I cam in 2nd in my main. the guy whom came first is useally a a or b main driver just had some bad luck earlier in his qualifing runs. But keep up to him pretty good.

I have a couple of question are the Tamiya shock a dirrect replacement or is there any type of mod involved.

My other question is I have the Stock shock towers. on the car it has a set of low profile towers(guessing better for carpet.) Should I keep these on or go back to the stock towers. My rear end was quite loose. I orignally though that the mi2 cam with a one way. but it just has a normal diff. I will be ordering a front spool for the car soon.( or is that what I have). I would mind trying a oneway just for fun I also have to say that this car rocks. No complaints at all except for the leaky shorcks.(but that is an minor issue)

One last question do ae springs fit. Okay make that two questions Got outdoor asphalt on a small tight track what type of springs do you recommed. Sorry about the novel lenght post
