I've been using the Mugen ends on the rear shock tower, with white ballcups and standard Lunsford Punisher turnbuckles all the way around.

Thanks

I was thinking of the mugen caps and the balls on the shock tower as well.

Still running the dirt setup on your AD2? I feel like it worked awesome on the AD1 but doesn't seem to have as much on-power or side-bite on tight hard-packed tracks like HRH.

I am going to try the upper mounts on the hub carriers. Any other suggestions for a slick track?

Todd - For the AD2 at Hot Rod we'll probably be using 2-B in the rear and maybe long arm, I'm not sure yet. Both of those will give the car more corner speed.

toma - Thanks! Casper had your post covered.

Evan - The O.S. CV-R line of motors is your best bet. They have a .12, .15, and .18.

Yo Casper -

It's Todd from Wed night at SoCal. We spoke for a bit and I had the pleasure of qualifying right behind you in truck and getting booted to last after the first turn. I LOVE RC RACING!!!!

Anyway...I wanna get new batts and wondered where you get yours and what numbers you look for. Also, I wanna ditch the Quasar Pro and take care of my batts better. With all the different ways to treat batteries....how to you treat yours???

Thanks

See you at SoCal.

How is it going Todd. That is a pretty tough layout to make up time on right now. Patience is everything with this layout.

I use slingshot batteries now. They will have there web site up soon at www.slingshotbatteries.com . For stock racing you want low internal resistance and high voltage. Numbers on the cells will vary from matcher to matcher but resistance numbers under 2.5 and voltage over 1.17 are pretty good packs!

Runtime is not an issue. For maintance get an equalizing tray like the Integy Zero-Thirty for quick equalization at 0V or if you are not comfortable with that the Novak Tray is awsome and can equalize anywhere from .1 to .9V per cell. The trays are important as not matter how well the pack is matched one or more cells with charge and discharge at different rates even if this is a small amount over time the pack will "unmatch" itself. By traying the batteries you can help keep the pack at top performance. If you do use a tray like the novak I recommend dicharging the pack on the tray before charging and let it rest off the tray for about 5 min after the last light goes out and then charge the battery. You want the pack to peak on the charge with the battery temp between 120-130 deg measured just after the pack has peaked. Do not use a fan to cool the battery during charging. You will also get the best performance from the battery if it is warm when you run it so if the battery has been precharged go ahead and repeak it prior to your race.

As for chargers. I have been looking at the Durtrax ICE. For $130 you cannot beat it's features. I personally use Integy 16X5V6 chargers but if I were in the market today I would strongly look at the ICE.

smaxx - The O.S. motors run very well. I have seen a few Revos with the TM engine that were fast.

waterblast - I don't know..it's going to depend on my racing schedule; this summer is already very full. If I have the time, I will make it.

HAD A DIALED WEEKEND!

First round of the 2005 RC Pro West Division Series.

Came from DEEP in the pack to finish less than 12 inches behind Marty Korn in the Expert Gas Truck class...finished 2nd.

Scored my first podium finish in 1/8th scale behind Chad Bradley and Greg Degani, who won his first race as an OFNA driver.

Special thanks to all my sponsors and everyone who has helped me: Team Losi, Jammin' Products, Trinity, Sirio, Rossi, Novak Electronics, Pro-Line, The Dirt Racepark, Jay Halsey, Mike Dunn, Dean Sexton, Adam Drake, Charles Charron, and the best mechanic in the world...MY DAD!
