well it is an easy car all round. easy to work on, and easy to dial in.
Today we had a wet track when we turned up to race. so we ended up turning it in to a practice session. although not official, i shaved 2 tenths of my own lap record set with the Xray i had. and we are just getting started.

Nope... Curry's wasn't anywhere near done. I got to take a good look at it though, and it's a nice car.

hello

i have just purchased one of these and so far so good trhe build is okay the only small problem i have had is so far is the front spool putting the pulley the holes are very tight and difficult to get the screws started with out stripping it out.

so far very happy cant wait ti finish and drive this car.
i can see why you use the Xray spurs the one i have in at themoment will be hard to do up the motor

Ritchie,

Mr. Fasttrax (Joe) works so hard on his track and program, I did sign up to race and paid him, but I told him I most likely would not get on the track. Call it a contribution to a great group of guys. The actual first run will be very soon, I promise.

Steve

Yea, I saw on the results you were listed as signing up, but when Korey said your car wasn't finished i was confused, I thought maybe you had esc issues or something like that.

when using the Xray spurs which i am waiting for will the M5 bolts do up flush and not cause a problem with the screws protruding through and causing the belt to ride up on the bolt ?

Matt,

Use some shims and place them under the bolt head to space them away from the pulley. Hope that helps.
