I run SMC 4000mah 28c lipos that I bought in april 2009. They are all I have that fits my Cyclone S. They have hundreds of cycles on them.

I run in the front and have several wins.

Just saying...

I've had very good luck with the Gen's Ace 40C and 50C 5000 ROAR packs from Hobby Partz. You'll get a bunch of different opinions about these but mine have lasted a long time and deliver good voltage under load compared to other packs I've actually tested. I also take good care of them and with my charging and storage routine, I have packs that are over 3 years old and still going strong. They used to be great "bang for the buck" too until the price hike that must of just happened recently. Now they are looking less desirable next to something like the EA packs because the $28 sale price was the main draw.

Be careful what advice you consider on what's okay at the club level. Every club and track will have their own level of enforcement and courtesy between drivers on an honor system. Stick with 5000 packs for VTA and you'll never go wrong. There are plenty out there to choose from.

What about the oversized rear wing on the Camaro? Stocker just not cut on the "body lines". Is to be different or trying to get more rear down force?

Look closer...

It doesn't appear to be oversize...

But it does look like its turned over to act as a scoop for more down force...



But I could be wrong...

I thought those other things were Tampons...

Nothing in the rules that says you can't do that...

LOL!!!

mounting in the stock holes makes it easy to lose it...leaving a little lexan on the spoiler and putting the screws in the trunk keeps it bolted better...you can still get it ripped off...but it helps

same with my Camaro from 2008
