Yea we had a blast, you was fast all night. Get yourself an XRay and you'll be as fast as you want to be tho Its nice to have a full stocked hobbyshop at the track that has AE and XRay parts, I spent over $50 before I even payed entry fees.

Come on down Myron, you'd like it, nearly everyone besides Mack and us have AE rides looked like. We are planning friday night VTA and sunday at Thunder. See you there!
id rather cheat than pay for an xray kenny just messin i had way too much grip i think ill go an 8.2 or 3 friday we will see and ur close on gear

Has anyone tried the XRay "progressive" springs out on a T3'12 in VTA? I'm looking to buy some springs and was looking at all the options.

They are not so great. I tried the 2.2/2.6 and didnt like them on our track.

Anyone interested in vacuum forming me a Pontiac Firebird nose for the 69 Camaro? I had seen one made a few years back at an HPI event but he wasnt interested in making any for sale.

Thanks WaWa

Was that Johnny Socko? I don't think any of us in here have heard from him in a while.

Darkside: do you think the CF chassis/topdeck would make the TC4 club any/even faster?
On my asphalt track I am almost running a carpet setup on my current car, we have so much grip

From what I've seen, Darkside could put a whoopin on you using a shoebox with wheels...if it were legal lol.

OK - I'm just starting the VTA thing, but I've seen the phrase more than once so I have to ask... what's with the ceramic bearings "making you a dork"? There has to be some kind of inside joke there I'm guessing..
