Nice job Alberto and Liam!

I plan on being at the grand opening race at Charlotte R/C Motorsports Park (formerly The Farm II) this weekend, as well as for the Tilley race in April. I'm looking forward to meeting you two.

on the setup sheet, no box is checked for the inner rear camber link(shock tower).

also, can you please if you can in your own words why you chose each of those particular locations and settings. i ask because I understand why i choose things the way i do, just want to get a feel for others people's opinions on THEIR setups with the SX8

Sorry I knew I forgot something I will rescan setup sheet when I get home tonite,I think it was inner row closest to diff case second hole. I will try to explain in my own words as best I can why this set up worked for Liam. I have never driven Liam's car I try differant things and he tells me dad that's good or dad it's not the same then I go back to what he had and try something differant. I guess its a lot of what I try on my cars then apply to Liam's car.

is TQ Racing going to appoint another team manager? and how come all of the team drivers seem to be on the east coast or southern states?

i feel so alone as the only TQ team driver in wisconsin where NO NITRO racing in the WINTER exist.

Thanks Luther and Darrell! I really look forward to running this car. I have seen them run personally and they look very fast and I have never seen one break.

Once I get used to the car and try different things, I'll post what I think works well with the car and what doesn't work.

From reading the posts in this thread, It looks like Tq has some very talented drivers and I'm excited to be a part of it.
