It's actually a lot of fun, I was racing buggy, unfortunately the track just gets too chewed up from not bieng packed well and I had to switch over to truck though... what really sucks is I was way fast in buggy, but now I gotta learn it all over again.

Offroad is so dirty LOL

I'm about to start carpet racing, this should be interesting LOL

I have figured out that 19t is an awesome class. I can see now where its popping up everywhere.

The car was on rails today, I just practiced, didn't stay for racing. Time to rebuild it for Hitec this weekend.

I run AE springs on my Tamiyas. I've tried Gold/Blue, Blue/Silver, and am now running Gold/Silver combinations. Using 40 or 50 Wt.

My only gripe is that these shocks are DELICATE!!!! One good meeting with the boards and it's time to replace the rod guides and maybe piston (if you've drilled them out especially). At first I thought it was how I had the shocks shimmed but now realize it's just the nature of the shocks design.

Fairly slight improvement with ceramics. Adding ceramic balls in the diff and thrust bearings made the diffs really smooth.

Biggest bang for the buck has been the black belt upgrade.
