15.7 to 16.1 but marc had fast lap with 15.5

not really sure what jb was thinking with the 40's no body runs them for a reason. (I did sponsor a race using them with spec sauce once but that was just to make it interesting)

Funny shit there Ritchie....
'I' was thinking that the car performed quite well on those Sorex 40's (btw....which nobody runs for a reason), for being its first time out on the track. Thank you very much sir

And when was the last time you tried some shit that other racers thought wouldn't work , and it turned out to be pretty good? Hmmm.....c'mon buddy

They did work quite well, I was surprised, but'm thinking the car also worked quite well for having a loose top deck. Tighten that top deck throw on some 36's and get ya some jake. Btw I ran 32's in the mod main. (Trying some stupid shit for the sizzler.)

Franko,

Serious question, Did you ever run the stock car at least once? Learn the car first, then make changes as needed, Don't be in such a hurry to make changes, it works well in stock configuration.

Should give a bit less traction - but we will see!

The car is a bit more stiff with that option part ... Marc is testing that on this weekend on our german nationals warm up!

I'm running one on mine car didn't really like the two piece mount didn't like how it could flex between the motor and spur felt like the mesh could lock up abit when pushing the car hard through the turns especially hairpins but I'm also running 2mm chassie hard arms and uprights and all the gears in the diff didn't really like the car as kit but now it is mega!
