I could only fit two in the rear one on each side and one in the front..which I put on the left. Make sure you have a noticeable amount of side to side play. If you have none you may be side laoding your bearings and that slows you down.

We are about 24+ hours from finally getting to run the EC. There will be four EC's at the track this weekend. PW will have his cell phone on with a fresh back up battery ready to give advice (I hope) should we need it.....LOL With the rain coming and going the turnout should be huge. Set up's and all changes will be posted on gearchart.com by Sundaynight. Mo will be running mod and the rest of us will be in 19 turn. The internet hype is almost over and it's time to go RDX hunting.

PW- You're either going to be proud of me or not speak to me for a while....LOL

Go get those RDX's !!! bring back some Xrays too

You are going to love the car. It is so easy to drive fast with. I would be surprised if you didn't improve by at least a half second a lap if not more.

Thaks for the info. I thin there's only one maybe two fast Xrays guys at the track. Everyone has switched to the RDX. Gotta just do what ever it takes to get back into the mix. I think I sort of hit a wall in my driving abilities that I will work on improving starting tomorrow. Carpet racing is just been a struggle for me but it's time to step up.

Go to http://www.2006RoarNats.com and click on the Live Scoring link under the carpet nats menu, that will take you were you need to go to see/hear the live action.

...oh and back to the smack, I was able to dig up a picutre of the last person who lost a mullet challenge, it ain't that bad is it?

I ran the car once and was already faster. Start with PW's setup...just make sure you have 33LB springs in the front. I also raised the rear camber link to get more rotation but that was because the track we were on was hella tight. I did notice that with harder springs in the front I ended up getting more steering. I think that the car was plowing in the front. Judging by the setup I would say that is going to be a tendency that we will have to keep in mind. Other than that I just kept the car the same way and tried wheeling it. I know Fred (RcOldman) played with shock posistions a little and his car was good as well. He had trouble getting steering but that was because he had the G6 body on there....I ran an Alpha. I will not be running a G6 anytime soon after seeing what he had to do compared to me. Our cars were identical, down to the electronics and he had to dial in steering while I just had to fine tune. IMO the Alpha is the only way to go. Oh and I started my Jaco's at 58mm. I still prefer Parma's though...used to start my Parma's at 56.5 and run them til they came off the rim (51???)

Here's a couple pics of the new car, ready for it's first night out to SoCal tomorrow. Haven't been able to run on road for 7 weeks. It'll be nice to get off the dirt and back on the asphalt.

Maxspeed (www.maxspeeddesigns.com) did the name stickers, the Schumacher, BMI, and P-dub stickers. Tim Potter (p3) did the Munno Graffix stickers. And obviously Lynn Munno did the paint as always

We drilled holes into the bumper brace to lighten the car up. Had to taken off at least 2 Oz if not more. I believe this was something Fred saw Teemu doing. Fred when you see this put a pic up of it.
