Wednesday Night Short Course Thunder at Thunder Alley tonight was dominated by Track Star drivers.

Yours truly went on to win the 4wd Mod SCT A main with Pres taking second after TQing.


We will have more DE Racing wheels at Hemet this Friday. Both Slash off sets will be available in black for the time being.

Also Fantom Fusion 550 motors and the new gold plated banana plugs for LiPo batteries.

And as usual we will have Jammin parts available.

Hey Jimmy what is the difference between the 0801 pipe/header combo and the NEW Alpha PLUS pipe/header combo?

Other than a smooth finger. Can changing plugs, head shims, increase fuel mileage.

Vareck,

The 0801 is a mid to top pipe with a decent bottom that transits quickly through the range.

The Alpha pipe (2081) has a tad more bottom, not as much top and is smoother in the transition.

Yes and No.

It really depends on weather conditions.

The best all around set up we have found has been the P3, 30% fuel, .3 (stock) shimming and 0801 with 8mm restrictor.

The biggest things for fuel mileage are:

#1 smooth driver

#1.1 Low or no wheel spin

#2 Tune (including pipe)

#3 clutch

#4 did I mention smooth driver?


The biggest thing guys don't think of is hitting the lines lap after lap.

Think of it in terms of ground covered. If you miss the tight line by one car width in a tight 180 turn you just added 2-3 feet to your lap. Now multiply that by how many turns, and what makes it even worse is larger turns like sweepers where you may have added up to 15 feet to your lap!

"So what" you say? "I can drive faster in that line and my lap "times" are within .5 second or right on with the tight line guy".........

That simply means you are burning more fuel than the other guy. and that is why he can go 10+ and you are at 9 (or worse)

Food for thought.



Stay tuned!!

Yo, Race-something I need a report from you so I can post it on the Ofna site, it seems like your on a winning streak but that may end on Sunday as it's Mega SC Sunday at Milestone. Tons of banging door to door action, closing the door, t-bones, press to pass, mid-air disaters and syncronized spinning which is my favorite, Oh! And I forgot the "bump and run" and I'll have a word with later on that
