SoFast - The Trinity one weighs more..it's not better or worse, but the extra weight helps keep the truck balanced.

Allison Mann was at Hemet taking pictures today, I should have some to post soon.

Brownie - My practice bodies have that fade paintjob..I ran the fade for YEARS before getting an actual scheme put together. Marty Korn is my painter now..he's DIALED.

You shoulda came up and said hi at KZ! I really like that track..and I was very happy with how the races went on Saturday.

driftingking - The Mini-T bodies should work with a little trimming..and maybe some different body mounts. Packing tape or chassis protector would be a good idea for the bottom of that truck.

Trixter - Make sure your diff isn't too tight..that will help corner speed quite a bit. I'd run a longer camber link to help keep the truck flatter and rail around the corner. You may want to add anti-squat to get more on-power steering as well.

Break-in is important for EVERY engine!

Casper - I wanted to make sure you still had them in case Adam wanted to look at them; we talked about broken stuff this weekend and he said it was all good.

You can, but we already talked about it..

Take the screws out of your rear hubs and put loctite on them again, they'll stick better the second time.

It doesn't take long..three seconds to pop the wheels off and a minute to check four screws.

Haha

Yeah I need to check those again. I am going to put larger screws in since I am currently using the lower holes. That is not what broke on my arm though. It literally snapped through the middle of the arm. The hub is attached to one end the other end is attached to the pivot block. The only thing holding the wheel and hub on the car is the shock! I was so amazed when I saw that I almost fell over. I could not believe I could do that to one of those arms! I can see losing a hub screw and breaking the arm that way (that is what Ryan did! ) but to just snap it in half was impressive!

Actually it was not a very big jump but it kicked the nose straight up and it landed down on the right rear wheel and the arm gave out!

Like this?
Courtesy of Sokool at the antr forums. That actually broke his pivot block on the side that didn't hit the dirt.

Bad landing

Yep just like that! but other side of the truck!

It only fell from about 3 feet or so. Aaron will know what jump it was. It was the long double after the end of the straight at Rev. The 1/8th scales chewed up the jump face and I hit is wrong.

Aaron. Do you prefer to us the standard Lunsford 3.0mm Punisher size or the 3.5mm Super Duty turn buckles for the rear camber links on your gas truck? Why this preference? Thanks again for your help.

It is possible for the motor to run backwards. It does not do it very well and it is hard to do but sometimes when the piston goes to TDC it fires a little premature and it will start the piston back down the wrong way and it will run backwards. I have seen it done a couple times. Does not hurt anything that I am aware of but annoying and funny non the less. Just turn it off and start it again.
