I heard that the xray guys used the single stage tires at the novak race, while other companies were using the 2 stage. If this is true, why? When are we going to see a setup sheet from you guys also. Thanks

FastCats is a very nice track. I always go there for practice. Unfortunately, I could not race that event as I am busy.

They have tire truers there for public to use. Are you using Spektrum or normal FM radio? If you are using normal FM system, you get to take a picture and put it on the frequency board to indicate the frequency that you are using. It's pretty cool!

Default C2 Gearing and bring spring combination


Was wondering when you ran 19t at this past Novak event what spring and brush combination you ran and what was your rollout. Was anything done to the brushes.

Hey mike congrat!!!

I'm finishing building the car, so I'll have it for toronto

Do you have any recommandation for a foam setup? Anti-dive, flat? It look like the car need softer springs in the rear than the FK05. Any info would be apreciated.

Mike - Congrats on the new ride and a great season opener.

I think it's been awhile since you've been to Mimi's (aka The Track) in Gaithersburg MD. I'm hoping that you might make it down in March for the Trinity race!!

Of course many of us would like to see some of the setups that you guys used this past week/weekend and maybe some of the lessons learned.

Congrats and hope you can make it down to see us in March!!

Fastcats is a really good facility.. you will agree im sure. Glad to see more support for the races north of the boarder.. ITS GREAT that you waited till i moved to Toledo to make it up there

If you were so inclined.. there is an awesome race at the end of March- the Canadian Indoor Champs (does not conflict with Nats)...
here is the writeup from last year...

Slap AL Bella in his bald head for me while your there

Jon.... Thanks man... This new T2 is awesome.. Can not wait till the next race in toronto for me ...

When and where in Toronto will you race? I live in Syracuse, NY where we have no TC racing but I have cousins in Toronto whom I visit frequently. I'd love to watch one of the events there. You guys wouldn't happen to be racing at FastCats outside of Toronto, would you?

EDIT: Ok, I guess it is at FastCats. I'll try to make it up there and watch you guys race!
