Yes, one of the guys at Tamiya countersunk all of my top decks using a proper bit and a drill press. I'm not sure what size the bit is but he got it at mcmaster.com and it perfectly matches whatever countersinking the chassis has. He said that it is important to set the depth of the bit first so that you don't enlarge the holes if you go too far down and then just countersink away!
Yeah, the surikarn cars are really nipping at my heals. This last weekend, a surikarn car won two of the throwdowns but I won overall with more points. It's getting very nip and tuck and my EvoS is like half way built...just looking for a reason to finish it
Dude, cruise out...we're slow hehe. One of the secrets to the Tamiya track is knowing what your car will do on the curbs and not being afraid to go up on them from time to time. Another key to the track is the Es's. If you set it up right you can really gain a lot of time and it sets you up for the straight. Lap of the gods materiel
but if you get it wrong...hurting!
