Thumbs up Worked 4 me

Guys, ran the H4E at NorCal again today, last 4 Sats. broke an axle in each Sat's. main. My fault every time. I love these cars, and I'm confident that factory refinements will be made. I'm the guy several posts back, that explained how to boil (moisturize) the plastic susp. parts. And it DOES WORK! But while prepping the car last night for today's race I was studing the way the front end of this car is designed and noticed the position of the steering stop screw locations. I installed the small button head screws BACKWARDS with the head being the point where contact with the C-hub would ocure. Here's where attention to details really comes into play. Bottom of the screw head (the flat part) is approx .020" to .025" from being fully tightened. Next, set steering EPA so as to have approx. .015" gap between the screwhead (the rounded part) and the C-hub. I don't use any type of servo saver, but I do use a TOP Photon servo arm that has been boiled, on my Spectrum LP servo. Today in practice before the track's bite in the sweeper had come up, I hit the outside wall sooo hard that I DESTROYED the left lower A-arm, you know, those (almost indestructable ones), and since the axle didn't turn so far to dislocate the internal ball and socket I actually BOWED the axle. Left the axle in the same condition (goodluck charm) replaced the A-arm and TQ'd and won A1 and A2 with better results than my TQ run. I love these cars!!! Worked for me. Chris S. LETZ RACE!!

Thumbs up

I'll be glad to. I'll do a set-down on the car sometime today and post it up. It doesn't vary too much from the kit, but where it does...and how the car and this old man came together...OH YEAH! Chris S. LETZ RACE!!

HoBo car goes 1,2 again in stock sedan in Toledo. No broken parts for either car today.

SOHC ran his HoBo today in USGT and did pretty well also for his first outing with the car.

got to run my car for the first time today. ended up 2nd in usgt. car is amazingly smooth. took me awhile and a broken axle to get used to the car. Broken axle was all me. It took a little more than a "light" hit to break. Didn't even know it was broke until I went to sauce my tires for the second qualifier. lol. Still very happy with the car.

Car looked pretty good. I'm confused by all these post about the cars breaking if you look at them wrong. We've got three cars running in Toledo now and none of us find it that fragile. I don't think any of our cars are living a easy life either.

Glow Green has been my sedan body color for years. That was my reason for me getting the green H4 car originally. It turned out to be a great purchase for reasons other than the color.
