We went and raced our first club race in Bama today(yesterday)....not a huge turnout but we still had 12-15 in buggy. I pulled a 3rd place quali. out of somewhere...ended up 5th in the A after getting tangled up in the first corner and the oncoming storm clouds. (couldn't see to well..lol)



I'm still running the 1-R....it felt pretty damn good.


I was having trouble with the rear wanting to swap ends on me....off power going into the turns. I changed to the blue springs in the rear and it was still loose acting....but much better. I have some homemade mudguards on the back(made from the sides of an OCM wing.. and the are putting a little pressure on my rear sway bar mounts. I think that may also be causing the rear to act this way some.



Oh....Ryan(oldest son) finished 3rd in the Slash class....Scott(youngest) finished 5th. This was their 1st Slash race.

TRY IT THEN!!! That is what I did. Was the first in FL. to have one and never looked back. I loved being the lone person with one! Did not last too long like that though.
