Default Thanks IslandBoy

Thanks for 411 IslandBoy.

> PS. I'll be heading to PUNE, India in March for my job. How was your stay?

I was there for about 9 months. The people are not a problem. Most everyone speaks english. Depending on what region you are going to and what city you are staying in, the polution and the crushing crowds are a problem. I stayed in a Hotel for the first month and then went into a company apartment. Some things are dirt cheap like electonics but you better take a local with you so you don't get stiffed. Other items like shoes or sneakers are cheaper to purchase in US. Water is a problem in many regions and you better stick to bottled water. Depending on the size of the city, you will find American style food like Pizzia and Burgers but local food is always better. Fruits are sometimes hard to find, so take some Emer'gen-C or some other Vitamin supplement. Bring good shoes and sneakers because you will be walking everywhere. Hopefully you go and come before August and October. In August you will simply melt -- I cannot describe just how hot it was and because power is flaky in some regions, no power no A/C. In October, expect rain in some regions everyday for the entire month. Northwestern India around Bagalor has a more stable climate, southern and Eastern India varies. All in all, you will enjoy the entire experience except for the airplane ride and getting into/out from the airport.

Anyway, thanks for the info and good luck. Hopefully I can stay here long enough to break my next car! LOL!

Talked to JKerr couple of hours ago, says the car feels really good at SoCal for his first runs on the new EC. Turns in hard, and very stable in the back end. I guess the only problem is it may be a little twitchy for him at the time. Also responding to changes that he has been making. I gave him a couple of ideas to try, so I'm anxious to hear from him how its going now. He basically started the day with my ending set-up from last Saturday there.

Oh yea, way to go Clint. Glad you stepped it up.

How are the rest of the EC guys running? Is it RDX's for lunch?

OH MY GOSH..........

This car is awesome. It looked really good sitting on my work bench for the couple of weeks while our carpet track took time off but it was worth the wait. Missed TQ on a bobble on the last lap. I took out all the RDX hot shots except the one that TQ'ed The car is easier to drive and if you need to push it some it's still controllable Corner speed (non pun intended) up the yin yang. The car rotated well and had nice snap out of the corners. Mo did most of the major testing but I just wanted to get use to the way the car felt. Only changed one thing from what we started with and the car was AWESOME!!!! The Schuie's were out in force today as all of the norcal regulars came out. Racer X will have the new set up sheet on www.gearchart.com tomorrow or Monday as the current one doesn't show all of the shock loactions. It sure was nice to be back in the lime light again. Too bad I screwed up the start of the main so my finishing position didn't show how killer the car was. I did have quite a few straightaway vic's today. The DC motor and battery combo was excellent.

BN RACING qualified 1 & 2 today .......................we all know Schuie guys don't look good in mullets

I have been running the Foam Spec car on asphalt, and it just keeps on getting better every time I run it.

Default One-way ????'s

Are there any major changes that need to happen when going from a standard diff to a one-way. Mi2, high-bite asphalt. Thanks, too all in advance.

I don't know about a standard diff but with a spool I was able to run th exact same set up with a oneway. There are a few set up's on gearchart.com you can try my set up from the Speedworld cup for a oneway in 19 turn

I've just gone from using a normal diff to a one way on high traction carpet (i use the same setup outdoors on asphalt) and allI did was reduce the rear droop by 0.5 mm to get the setup dialled.
