How's it doing this week in Vegas? Thinking of getting it at this cost.

To ask this question about a new car and probably not the best drivers using it at one of the toughest races in the world to make the A-main. May not truly say how good or bad this car is. I doubt there was enough testing completed to really get familiar with this chassis on that high grip style carpet track. It appears to have everything needed to do well on any surface.

Depends on your surface, but for med-high grip carpet, we use from 20-30wt AE oil. It does sound way soft, but the big bore shocks use lower weight oils compared to narrow bodies to reach the same damping levels.
Thanks, ...iam beginning with 25/30 front and rear (med springs).

Juan..I used go race with you in Ripon when you first started. My question was based on how was it holding up as I know this car is really new. The car looks great but wanting to order on and having parts (arms) is most like what it needs.

If you buy this car. Order all the typical stuff that breaks. I doubt to many people will stock parts. I read somewhere that people said it's held up well on crashes so far.

Ya... the typical suspect parts as usual. The crazy part is I've rarely broken arms even on 2x4 tracks but when I have its because of another car. You running this weekend? I've always followed you but when Ripon shut down I'd imagine running for you has been difficult but you always seem to do well.

Since most company's are going to the new lower profile shocks, I'm sure others will fit like the Xray ones probably. I'm sure they'll come out with more of a variety soon though.....hopefully.

I've just finished assembled my kit. It was easy and pretty straight forward. Will install the electronic this week end and test it out. Retail price in Singapore is not that bad at all.

With the "unconventional for onroad" modified C-hub style front end on this car, what is the actual benenfit I'm wondering. Is it more durable, or is it just to try something different.
