Heck yeah- great racing Hector! Yes, I had a problem with a backmarker in one of my heats too lololol

If you plan to run 17.5 as well next year then you have to get you an EXOSIX. Best handling, shaft drive and buttery smooth diff choices (gear or ball dif).

Next year the tc3 Will be back , there's unfinished business at hand.. .

For 17.5 I'll have something else.

Yeah those pesky back markers come out of no where.. Lol Was good fun, we raced a good group of guys..

more tracktime with update EVO6 MS motormount.. gears still in good shape. making strides in 'proper' shimming of gearboxes.

car is finally consistent (albeit consistently slow this past weekend). finally dipped into the 13.9-13.8 times once again after dialing in my setup during the course of the day. surprisingly (or not) I found myself heading back in the direction of which my TB03 and TA05 setups altho everyone else swears by the kit-advised setup (lesson learned once again, set the car up to your liking, kit setting is just a baseline start) kit setup just pushes way too much for me..

having a lot of fun with this car.. it will be on the podium soon

Hey guys, I'm looking for a rear EVO6 shock tower if anyone has a spare they'd be interested in selling.

If you aren't able to find one locally.

Mike R, can you make a modification to the exo6 ? My request is you shorten the driveshaft yoke 3mm so that 2 bearing can be use in the motor mount.i think it would support the drive line better and make it run truer.
Thanks
Brian

Personally I think Mike should just make his own car. I'd buy it.

I won't be at Pole Position on Saturday, but will be at NorCal on Sunday.

Can anyone give me any input on what separate suspension blocks in the front-rear position do for the car? I just want to get an idea of what I should be feeling. More steering, perhaps?

How are you finding the MS motor mount vs running Exo6??

so far in practice I can hang with some of the Exo6's, and outrun some.. still dialing in the setup to make it faster, just need the total package to come together.
