I've seen them break in cold conditions... I don't recall any problems when it's hot.

I just boiled my wings and wheels, which is supposed to be the cure... they do feel more flexible now. I'll have to actually get to a dry track to see how they do.

You can check out the new Caster forum at www.casterracingusa.com

It's only been up for a few weeks but there's quite a bit there already.

I don't have any pics of mine yet...

Sweet looking ride David!

Heres mine...
I took them before I got my Jammin big bores put on and put my new motor mounted up...

What do you think about the GO motor?
I decided to go with an RB S3 because it was available locally.
Got my first race with the buggy saturday. Did well considering the motor isn't even broken in yet and has only 11 tanks on it now (blubbery rich)...

But Chris "cool" Puller made the A main with a ZX-1R but couldn't finish the main with clutch bearing issues... Ya gotta love the darned little clutch bearings!!! But its the first weekend of the season, it will get better with a good setup for the car!

These new ZX-1's are so nice. I just received mine and all the problems from the old car are fixed. Definitely making improvements in the right direction.

Isn't there some big race that some of you are going to in Missouri?

Is there going to be any magazine coverage?

What do you think of the Caster, David? You drive it yet? Did you join the caster forum yet?

I got the handling of the car pretty good, now I just need to get my motor tune right. Finished 3rd this week, right up in the mix.

Hey guys, I'm new here but on the casterracingusa forums alot. Lot of good info here! Have had my K8T and ZX1-R for about 2 months now and they are awesome! Been getting the setups right and practicing for the local races around me. Will be going to a FL. State Race in May, First state race for me! Hope I can be of any help for anybody. A new place to check out is Holeshothobbies.com if you need caster parts and access.
