Did it come that way from me, or did you have an impact with something? I thought I checked it over carefully, but if I sent it to you with damage, please let me know.

BlackKnight- LOL- now that's funny Hope the other racers weren't too upset by that.
That caster setting makes a huge difference I know! I run that setting for all track conditions- No on power push and a nice settled feeling at all other times.

He was going around ok, just locked up the oneway, dialed down the steering and raced! (also said he did not reverse the steering!). Finished 5th or so in the end.

BK: man I wish I could have been there to see that! As long as I didn't have to be in the race with him. Because I would have been laughing too hard to drive!

Im going to the Indoor track this weekend for some testing...looking forward to it...the outdoor track has been totally redesigned..I hear it is wicked!..

the whole area was repainted with that tar paint, and the layout was redesigned over that...Its supposed to be really suited to Electric T.C's!

tisk tisk indeed!
Get to do some asphalt racing myself this weekend- should be very good racing.

off topic- I highly recommend the set-up 'wheels' that Schumacher has that goes for $12us. Much more precise than trying to measure toe-in, camber and width by your tires and cheaper than Hudy/Yokomo set up tolls. lets the car stand on its rear end too so that you are able to use a camber guage to measure toe-in.

kewl...I have been meaning to get some setup wheels, but I recently reviewed teh eagle Alignment station for a Magazine, and was able to keep it..

it is similar to the hudy tool, but made from cnc'd alluminium...

i'd like some setup wheels to adjust droop, tweak etc..and to adjust camber on the fly, without having to assemble the setup station

tisk, tisk is right! I don't have much to talk about these days. No on-road racing to speak of. I'm nearly in pure "off-season" mode. The whole new carpet track thing fell through here, and the already established closest place to me is over an hour away, so like I said......nearly in "off-season" mode.

The nearly part is because I catch the occasional in-door offroad race now and then.

The sad part is that its december and we have be getting temps in the high 60s and low 70s, but no one will set up a local races.

O'well, all I can do is wait till next year.
