Truggy looks good carlosm! looks very smooth!

Also i was adjusting my turnbuckles for the steering and man i had mine off, each one was a different length so after taking the calipers to them and getting each one matching the other the buggy found a lot more steering! off power the buggy turns on a dime! pushes very little on power but over all the steering is amazing!

Another great night out last night with the sx8. last night we had a club race, getting everything ready for this weekends AZ state race and i am very happy how the buggy performed out on a dry track. for the begging of the night the track was really like and loomy on top with some light water since its a brand new track and for that i put a set of knuckles on for the first qualifier and they worked great. for the new track i ended up finishing 4th for that heat. i was having difficulty in the middle section with an off camber jump that lead you into a step up and i was getting through around off of that untill i watched others and found that if i down side the jump get off the gas let the car pre load then back on the gas it shot me perfect over the jump. knowing that i took the second qualifier faster and ended up finishing 2nd. Going into the Amain i was sitting 7th over all and i knew i had to move up fast. on the down and quiet i got a good shot and past a couple down the straight and in the first turn i went wide then cut in passing a couple and missed the pile up sitting third witch i sat their most the race battling second place most the race untill the screw that holds the turnbuckle to the knuckle snapped and took me out. i had an amazing night with the buggy and i had alot of comments about it so i am very pleased and i believe i have a good chance of doing good this weekend!

Great job the car is doing better and the team is doing a great job keeping things moving we have received some of the worlds parts and we will begin to test them if all goes well we will be getting them out to the drivers.

Again I have to thank my team and my customers for keeping things moving forward.

Thanks

carlosm: i will post a set up probably tomorrow with all the info because i know i might make a couple changes due to the fact that when i went out their today it was a true blue groove track and tire choice was very important so during qualifying i will make some small changes and get a good dry track set up for us!

Thanks Vino..! I'd to take credit for the driving .. however it wasn't me. It was my truggy but I was the guy behind the camera on this one. Josh Harwood was the one driving this time..he's very smooth and fast. Hope to get some more video me racing the truggy before the season ends!
