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?
He was talking about CTS. I won't be anywhere this weekend except work. Got to pay for all this RC stuff somehow.

Managed to qualify 7th in the 'A' with the refined EVO6 MS.. In a gaggle of TA07's, 417s/418s, ARC's and I believe one Exo6...

Struggled a bit with dialing in my setup, but a late discovery (epiphany) threw me in the show.

Drivetrain is now solid and didn't skip a beat. My last full day of racing in competition with the car was struggle with being able to put the power down because of the insufficient transfer.. Happy to see all that is under control now.

looking forward to more races with this machine..

Nice run. What did you think of the traction yesterday? With all of the Saturdays under your belt - curious what your take was.

Grip was good, but not the best its ever been. A bit skatey once the tires warmed up, but manageable.

Took this at the Warmsprings Raceway this past weekend. I will be there again this weekend. Anyone else going to be there on Saturday?

Just picked up a TB Evo 6, and it is a beauty of a car (love shaft drive sedans).
Wish we had a track like that within a days drive to Oklahoma!

You live near Norcal Hobbies? That's pretty awesome.

Before I got into RC I lived within walking distance of the Warm Springs track in Fremont. Then I moved to Tracy and got into RC cars... the irony.
