There's a 2 year rule that went into effect for 09 along with the Roar weight change for sedan. You can no longer bring up races if it's been longer than 2 years. Sorry..........


So we can mention that Advil lapped a fat guy at the KO race

I think Korey hit it right on the head. The included allens are soft and strip out very fast. Makes it hard to get things really tight. A better hex driver should allow you to tighten down everything without stripping out screws.

i would love to fit lipos better in my cyclone and making a topdeck like that would solve the battery side but i just can't figure out how to connect to the rear deck cutting below the belt and basically through the motor mount bracket. was the bracket also cut to allow the space there?

Its good to see that the pro's do mistakes too He have to remove either the left front shock to get out his upper link or resnap the link..
