Check your servo also. I've seen guys pull their hair out trying to work out a problem like that and it ended up being a dead servo. If it's not centering properly it can make the car wonder all over the track.

I had a very good day racing today. We drove up to Racers Haven in Bakersfield for the second round of the Jimmy Babcock Racing points series. I ended up 3rd in Expert 19 turn. Donny got 4th or 5th I think in Pro Modified. Nice track. Too bad it's 3 1/2 hours away. Good racing and competition to get ready for Thursday

Did you check your hinge pins? A bent pin in the rear should be somewhat easy to spot as your toe in will be different from left to right. On the other hand, a bent pin in the front of the car is not see easy as you can easily mask it by turning your turnbuckles in either direction. Other than that I'm not sure. You may want to carry it in to the LHS just to have another set of eyes on it. At least that way you know they have time to REALLY look at it, versus someone who's at the track.

PS. A pic might even be usful. If you have one looking straight down at that car and then a couple from a few different angles, one of the guys here may be able to spot something.

Another thing. What does the wear on your tires look like? This could be a good clue as to where the problem is.

Latif had his Schumacher really dailed yesterday also. He is another great racer to have on your Team.
Thanks Steve I appreciate the props. I'm trying hard to make the car work as good as possible. So far the car has been excellent for me.

Well I got to race my EC on asphalt for the first time and wow is this thing awesome. The last two seasons we raced with foam tires on asphalt and this year we went back to rubbers and this car is really good. I used the PW setup from speedline and it was awesome with a 7 turn.

There's a reason why everyone who's run this car on rubber tires says it's dialed !

Go Here and download the Hayward Click 'n Convert program. Hayward is a vendor of mine and I found this years ago. It'll convert pretty much anything to anything.

Yeah no doubt it was really good for only 2 practice runs before the race started....and I will also say that the Dip traction compound worked really well as well.

Here is a picture of my car right before the main...... http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...hmentid=141364
