bjanzen - Nice pics! Where are the set-screws in the front roll bar mounts?

King - Thanks!

Entries and travel booked for the Mile High Indoor Champs. I also just did the entries for the ROAR Paved Nats and mailing in my Reedy Race entry Monday. Looking forward to seeing everyone at those events!

Good eye! Honestly I had run short building the kit and couldn't find enough set screws. I had decided that I could leave those out and be fine. I had forgotten about it til you noticed it. I went back to my little bin of bits and found enough to finish. Guess after cleaning my bench and opening ALL the packages I ended up with enough. I did come up short of one ball end for the inner pivots and had to order spares for that.

Yesterday was the first race with the car....... I put your 13.5 setup from last weekend on it. Thanks alot for sharing that with me...... the car was AWESOME right off the bench. I haven't had that much fun driving in quite a while. I took a little droop and camber out of it to adjust to my track and liking but ended up just 1/2 degree less rear camber and 1/2 mm less droop and was thrilled with the results. I am a B main driver but broke the my best time yet by almost a full second! I havrle been running a RSD6.1 all season and thought I had a great running car..... this thing felt light years quicker! I can't get over the difference....... still on cloud 9 from it........ Thanks again for the setup and ARC for such a great car!

Anyone compared the new 2.25 chassis to the 2.5 flex? I noticed Josh ran the 2.25 in Mod and the 2.5 in 13.5 but setups were essentially the same. Just wondering how the new chassis differs.

pcar951 - I prefer the 2.25mm chassis for improved traction/steering/feel but it was released close to the deadline and questionable on the availability for spec classes. Now, I'll have the 2.25 on all my cars.

Thanks Josh, I just ordered the new 2.25 chassis along with V2 servo mount. It's very cool that spare and option parts seem to be readily available for this car, no supply issues!

Hi

Just want to say that it's a amasing car , I run the car as Capricorn Te-01. I have raced it since 1 nov 2012 and have so far only broke a ball joint , and only thing that shows sign of ware is the front drive shaft , but after I made the spool cups to accept blades , I have not problems what so ever. Fantastic car.

Couple questions, been running my arc out on med grip asphalt and love it. Getting ready for reedy and I have a couple questions. The low friction belts and pullies, how much does that help with the drivetrain? Also compared to other cars it seems a little heavy, switching to the lightweight ballstuds how much does that actually save you? thanks in advance!

Many drivers prefer the low friction pullies. There isn't a huge difference but there is less drag especially for spec classes that need free drive trains. There are some guys that bought the low friction bearings or they cleaned out the original stock bearings and that made more difference than the pullies. I would recommend spending time cleaning out the bearings.

The aluminum screws lighten up the car a lot so i would recommend those as well.

Hi Guys,

Sorry if this is a little off topic, but Scotty Ernst is holding an AOC championship (ala ETS) and one round is being held in my home town, Melbourne Australia. I thought I would post the link to the discussion should anyone be interested in a holiday down under

2013 ASIAN ONROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS PRESENTED BY SCOTTY ERNST

Sorry for the hijack

Cheers,
Jordan
