How about the new caster blocks with the two roll center options? Any testing or results?

Thanks

g'day mate. i run the under drive gears in the back too but im still searching for a set-up. the tracks i run on a quite loose but. what diff oils are you using and what sort of track are you runing on. i am still a bit tentative in getting on the gas too early out of corners.

i want to try jerome sartel's approach to see what it is like. chatted with him a little on the nemo forum and he uses super thick oils even on not super grippy tracks. just adjustes the centre to suit.

he also runs a 43t spur with a 15t clutch bell so this might help to. i cant be bothered to try and figure out the final drive ratio of that compared to stock!!!

Had a great weekend out at Thunder Alley rc Raceway for the Top Notch Tour. There were a lot of Agama's out there! I had a great run in qualifying and started 4th in open buggy! Charlie Love qualified 10th and Nick Hernandez bumbed into the A main! So we had three agamas ready to do battle. The race started and there was five of us that broke away. In the first have of the race I couldn't find my rhythm and fell back about half a lap to the third place driver. Then I started to find my rhythm again and caught them. The guy in 2nd flamed and fell back. With about 2 minutes left to go the guy in 2nd made a mistake and I capitalized on it and took the spot. I finished in the second spot and not to far from first place even with my rough first half. The car was absolutely fantastic! Everybody's agamas looked great! They was some drivers even there from Arizona and they looked great to! Great job everybody!! Also Kortz finished 4th in the pro class! He was flying out there!

I just got the Exabyte FTW body for the 8ight-e for my Agama ebug. The styling is not for everyone, but it has a TON of clearance for the lipo. If you are using the alternate position for the front body mount, make sure you oval the body mount hole (front & rear) out well to allow for chassis flex.

I like the FTW Night Fox. Both on my E and Nitro. Durable too!
