Kevin K.... I ran the upper arms in the lower hole today at Trackside and ended up being the only car to run 24 laps (including the mods) so I have to say I like it so far. I noticed that in your setup you ran the front hubs inline. When I tried to go inline on the hub, with the lower upper arm mount hole, the hub bound up on the arm ball cup. It looked like I would have to grind away the inner ballstud hole area of the hub to make everything clear. How did you make yours work?

ottoman, to run inline, with the lower mount, you have to grind that other mount away...

Racer X- We actually got out of there pretty early. We went to Wendy's and ate there and then got stuck in traffic by calexpo and still made it home while there was still some light out. Maybe we'll see you next weekend????

I am considering buying the Mission and I want to know what you guys think about it. How is the durability and how is the handling? Thanx in advance.

Ottoman.....Good job on the lap times......Like Spooky said I ground a little off the ball cup on the upper A-arm and it works fine. How close did you run your car to the setup I posted and what tires were you running??? Hopefully I will make it up to Trackside this sunday, if so I hope to see you there.

FoamDonut......I dont think that you will find a stronger TC on the market and it handles right up there with the best of the cars on the market if not better IMHO. You could not go wrong in getting one you will enjoy it.

I've been trying to find some good detailed photos of the Mission but I haven't found any yet.
Do you guys know where I can find them or have you some you can post.
Like I said, detailed photo's would be nice. No one where we race has one yet so I'm curious to see one up close.

Thanks

Yorkie

Kevin....I know you prefer 139g tires. Have you tried the 139gs or the 139m yet? I picked up a set of 139gs or is the 139sg? anyway I might try them out Sunday.

Ottoman....I like the 139g's they do have a 139s I tried at the Novak and did not really like them as much as the 139g's. Yokomo has some new inserts out now that are thinner and they might work better then the Echo's I need to pick some up and try them out. I should be up there this sunday I will see ya up there if you guys make it down.

Can anyone point me towards a grippy, aggressive carpet setup running mod on a short track? My car is an axis 2. I like it a LOT, only had it a while

These are pictures of my Mission. I have had just about every touring car there is to have (Yokomo, TC3, XXX-s, Pro2, Pro3, SST99) and the Mission is by far the best handling and performing car I have ever had. My only knock is parts availability, at least locally for me.
