I think I know someone who's got all of you beat. Randy Caster has run just about every car out there. He's full ride with Losi now and I think he's there to stay. But before a year or so ago, you name it, he had.

On another note. I did some testing today. Tried the new T2 steering block setup. Car was really good. Started out at 13.2's ended up with 12.3's.
Found out you need .75 shim to make up the difference when using the T2 blocks. Tried it low then high. Car felt better with the steering block shimmed up but went faster with the block down. As soon as I can I will get a setup sheet on gearchart.com. This will be my starting setup.
