Monday, August 20th, was judgement day at The Track @ Harbor Hobbies.
Except for two snapped C blocks, a few dents 'n dings in the front end and some side scars, the Silk Purse survived my retro rookie skills and drove well (up to the part where I hit the barrier one time too many and the C block(s) broke).
With some more practice I hope to run with the big dogs this carpet season.
The NOVAK CLUB SYSTEM perfomed flawlessly.
Kudos to NOVAK for making it and to RobK for approving it for USVTA use.
The $40 I saved over purchasing the Edge 2S / Ballistic Brushless 25.5T VTA System will buy me more C blocks.
OBTW: The C block mod I've been working on has now been track tested. Results: I found out how not to do it.
My heartfelt thanks to Eric Whiteside from The Track @ Harbor Hobbies for working with me, sharing his knowledge and helping me with some of the finer tuning adjustments.
Eric mentioned that switching over to the HPI Pro 4 steering system has worked out for other Sprint owners. So, that's a definite option for me in the future.
