Did you mount the transponder where the manual said. If so move it. The horrizoltal mount causes issues. I run my battery out back and the transponder in the front box

yeah i had it mounted where the manual states to put it in the little slot. AFTER my main (and it not counting then either) i talked to a few guys and they all told me the same thing that it gets interference from the servo being right there. so i moved it and after racing was over i went out for some practice laps and everything seemed to be working fine. wish i would have known before the race but oh well. just the kinks of getting a ride. but other than that i love the car. got some option parts coming in this week so cant wait to try them out

I probably need to talk to Andrew on this one but has anyone heard or wouldnt mind seeing an even softer compound like a super ultra flex?!?!? On certain tracks I'd really like to go with an even softer compound then the ultra flex. Any thoughts or comments?

SUF compound? I pretty much never run below 50F degrees, or smooth blue groove, so would probably never run it.

I'll tell you what I would absolutely love to see: A cross between the Proline Blockade and the AKA Impact.

+100 to that. Out here on the west coast we run on loose tracks where traction is key and sometimes the ultra flex just isn't quite there. It seems as tho others running either M4 proline or SS aka just seem to have a little edge. I would also love to see a new tread something like the impact or the blockade but first I would rather see a new softer compound

this is just my personal opinion, and i am no pro. but personally i think i would rather have an arm break than bend. yes i know that does sound a little funny because it would put you out of contention, but if the arm bends, i would just think it would put a lot more components under stress that wouldnt normally be there possibly causing many other parts to break prematurely. that is just my look at it. i think the grey arms a good in the rear, but i am gonna stick with the blacks up front

Love my VP Pro tires out on the east coast. The main tire people run around here are JC Hybrids. Something like that would be awesome.

Gene, Any word on the Lipo batts coming to VP Pro, and the HV servos?

Commented about it in the Agama thread. No pro license for me, or team discounts... so just my opinion as a privateer racer.

I bent a couple CVD's because the grey arms flexed too much on hard impacts (assume what happens is the shock bottoms out, the arm bows downward, and the upper arm lets the hub compress into the bulkhead and bend the CVD). That said, the buggy still ran fine both times because the bend in the CVD wasn't bad enough that it would have destroyed something, and in a race it probably would've finished. But $15 for a CVD is $15. Then again, if you are racing... let it all hang out for the good tune.

Just found the pictures from the race in Santa Barbara, CA. at Elings Raceway. An event held by OGRC. I ended up taking 3rd using the MF Turbo Trax which were dialed and consistend throughout the whole day.
