I use to race 1/12 electric back when ROAR required all cars to have a driver figure, the good old days I had one taped to my servo of my chassis which position wise was correct for most Group C, prototype and Can Am cars. For sedans I made an plated interior, but I like your solution.

It was just some bits & pieces from past cars owned, I believe the little CF "arm" was made by Exotek and used to raise the transmission on a 22 buggy / SC truck. Something you could easily make yourself. The mount post was from a Schumacher SV buggy. With the driver figure, I made the hole just big enough to barely fit the post through so it's a tight fit. With the body clip in place, it stays put pretty well. Easy to rotate vs. full removal also, if you just need to get at some wiring quickly, ect.

One thing this thread has always seemed to have is passion, which I think is a good thing. I think it shows how much people care about the class and want it to be around for a long time. However, I can't believe someone made a cooking show reference in an R/C car thread ...but I did know what show they were talking about.

As far as USVTA racing, I was part of a great qualifying heat on Friday night. Had a chance to get TQ but made too many mistakes. Ended up in a 3-way battle for 1st with the cars less than a second from each other. Even though I finished 3rd, I had a big smile on my face.

Dale - Protoform
A wide body Lincoln MKVII would be awesome - but I'll settle for a Protoform Mercury Cougar!

Hi Joe, I was at CAL with the blue 'cuda (the one w/o the stripes or black hood) and brought my dog. I'll try to make toys for tots.

that can't be possible, Pete - Novak stuff is inferior compared to what's spec'ed for ROAR that's why so many people are trying to lobby for open motors in USVTA - because the novak stuff isn't near as good as the other brands

i forgot the sarcasm font, so you'll have to take my work that i'm being that way

Considering he's talking USVTA and all the motors were Novak: your comment makes no sense.

Nice try though!

i know Pete races at one of 2 tracks - one is USVTA and the other is ROAR... so, my comment does have its merit
