That's my bad. Remind me to put you into the wall the next time out.....LOL You are going to have to modify your set up for different springs since you can't get those springs so easily......LOL

Did the ready track use any sealers or syrup? Have you tried this setup with a mod motor yet? And finally does using the cvd's up front make a big difference?

My next race will be the Summer Sizzler at Intermountain RC Race way in Magna UT. The track just got a fresh coat of sealer and the air temps will be close to 90.

Thanks for your help
Billy

Yes they sprayed the track for the Reedy. I know Billy used one of his cars in mod for Reedy, but I dont think it had the same set up Scotty ran

Speedworld is not sealed, and we use soda syrup. I tryed it with a LRP 4.5 and it worked very well, better then I expected.

I have been told the CVD's have alittle less steering then the Univ's, but you don't get as much chatter when running a spool. I haven't had a chance to test the CVD's and Univ's back to back yet.
