Yeah, there are a bunch of national level drivers here. Last time I raced, I was only able finish one out of the 3 qualifiers, but I took the B-Main. Now I have my ball diff, hopefully that will help my lap times.

You will figure it out. I will order parts to build a diff closer to me running on carpet, well if I do decide to run carpet. For now I can race asphalt year round so I'm happy.

Been looking for awhile. Speedtech said he would have more in about 3 weeks. I checked all the places most have mentioned to me and no one had them in stock. I found rears at Speedtech but no luck with fronts.

Try Precisionrc or you can go direct to www.jethobby.com as they are the Jet Racing & HB distributors in Hongkong and they also welcome mailorders.

I tried the Hara foam setup from Vegas and had good results from them. I was running it for the first time and I got in the A main in a big race.

The only thing I changed was from a 4 degree castor to 6 degree.

I was using Jaco double pink/orange up front and dobule pink in the rear. Xray 33lb and 28lb springs.
