Default Hello caster owners

I was at a club race today here at the local track today. Instead of running my usual 808 today thought I would give my newly acquire used zx1-r a shot.(Which I got for a crack deal on da bay) I just wanted to say "WOW"...This thing handles great and got lots of off power steering while the rear is planted with cheap tires! I ran it in 2 heats then broke a rear arm in the third. Went back to my 808 and compared lap times..I was 2 seconds faster with my caster! I always hated my mbx5 cuz it pushed like a dump truck but this caster is bad azz..! Love it.

Question is..will the rear arms from the mbx5 fit the zx1r? The shop had mbx arms in stock but the caster arms I have to mail order..any info will be appreciated...hoping to get it going for the big point race here nxt wkend.

they will fit but need a spacer. if you order on monday it will ship out on tuesday and should arrive by friday. they come from iowa and i get my orders to florida in 3 days. what did you do to break an arm? they have some of the best plastics i have seen.

Yeaaa its underated but as soon as some one tries it out they all go woowwwwwwwwwww

The car might not be so marketed with hot top pro drivers etc!!
but its a very good car for the retail price compared to many others!!

ok it needs a few tweaks here and there but which car doesnīt need a tweak!!

adn if you improved 2s on your lap times with this car imagine what other drivers would achieve

And guess what i donīt even have the zx1.5r car yet, canīt wait to get mine soon!! and i drive a D8 its also easy to drive but iam waiting to try out the caster buggy and compare!

I will let all you guys know what i think of the difrence and from what i hear i will not be disappointed!!

This buggy is pretty dialed. I have been running it for awhile now and im loveing it. Everyone who has drove my car says it has way more steering than any other car. Theres some some things that still need attention but we are working on it as we speak! Glad to hear you like the car NITRO. If you need any setup info or help with anything shoot me a pm or email at josh@casterracingusa.com

Josh thanks for your help and encouragement. I would love to be associated with caster even if it only means a free shirt and a banner that I can put on my tent. I am determined to get the word out about caster around here in the south. I travel in ky,in and tn just to hit the races so I can definitely get noticed. As I said I am an ok driver with mostly bmain finishes and an occasional amain appearance. But again I am not looking for a hook up..just an opportunity to be a part of the team...been a longtime since I've been so excited about a rc car.

p.s.

this sounds stupid..but what consists of a RC resume? Lol...I've written plenty resumes for my day job as a surgical nurse but dont know what to put in a rc resume..race attended? Placements? Picture of my trophies? LOL. How about a pic of my wife...HAHAHA
