Josh R - Jr. and Ron Rossetti have been running that car quite a bit, and they feel it's very capable of being competitive (if there are two opinions in the RC world that matter, they'd be right up there!). I haven't driven the car or worked on one, but it seems to work pretty well; Ron was running competitive times with it at Silver State.

Horizon is good about backing up their products, and I think it'll be a great way to enter the 1/8th scale buggy racing world.

dave - 2wd buggy is the hardest class to race in a competitive environment, simply because it's the least stable of any off-road racing vehicle, and has the least amount of tire rubber in contact with the ground at any given time. 19T buggy would be a great way to sharpen your driving skills, but only if you race on a smooth, flowing track, and with motivation to put in a good solid battery pack with tight lines and no crashes. Blasting around a rutted 1/8th scale track and sliding around loamy berms won't help your car control abilities.

Gas truck teaches mental toughness and trains you to think about what's going on during a race. It's great for learning throttle control, and when to be conservative, or to be punched!

rod_b - I never change my setups..I feel that my cars are well balanced and will be on pace with the correct tires, and then I adapt my driving to suit the track conditions. My XXX-T setup (that I have used at Revelation) is on the second page of this thread.

nitro kid - What car are you referring to?

rc scoring pro - I wish I had a laptop to bring with me! I've run enough race programs and used enough scoring software to know what you have going on there..it looks really good.

Unfortunately, most of the races we go to, the computer system is already set up, and practice is never timed. You might want to contact the tracks around here (like Hot Rod Hobbies and The Dirt) and ask if they'd like to try it.

Aaron:

I was wondering which gel and spray do you use in order to keep your hair spiked?

nitro kid - I'd start with a 22/88 and work from there

Scott - Citré Shine spiking glue, it's dialed! Comes in a yellow bottle-kinda thing, and it's stickier than Pro-Line glue.

Peanut called it "the most dialed hair stuff he's ever used"...hahaha

Hey Aaron just wanted to thank you for recomending the Airtronics 94357 servo to me in a diffrent thread. I just installed it and it looks really great, super fast, lots of torque and zero play in the gears, etc.

thanks for the help. hope to see you soon

First of all I want to thank you for all the help that u gave me.

I have a problem with the throttle/brake servo (jr590M). Every time I push/pull the T/B I hear a humming sound. Is this normal? Theres no more humming once I let go of the T/B and the servo is in its normal position. I checked the linkages and did the SUBTRIM and EPA of my radio (helios) but still I cant eliminate that sound. What could be the reason for this?? thnx

Josh - I might have the opportunity to race one..but it looks like I will be racing 1/8th scale buggy for a different company next year, which means I won't be allowed to use one of the Horizon cars.

Jake - No problem!

kford - Hope to see you there! We'll be up there Friday night and Saturday, then going to Pro-Line's track for a double-header weekend on Sunday.

penggoy - Some servos will do that through their movement. Most of the time it's nothing to worry about. If it starts making other noises, like grinding or clicking, then the servo might be going bad.

I just swapped the 94357 from my yok sd and put it on my MST-1. Cant wait to get some tires and see the difference. I had the Hitec HS605 which is now discontinued but at 6V it had 96oz/.13 transit.

Speed and torque won't be the difference between that Hitec and your Airtronics servo; the 357 will center more consistently and feel better from corner to corner.

cool, almost done rebuilding the truck just waiting for the tires, shockboots and upperdeck to arrive, i also moved the hitec for use in throttle/braking instead of using a standard servo, i dunno if it was the servo to blame but the brakes didnt seem to "grab" quite as much as i liked.

I've never mail-ordered anything R/C related. I'm a firm believer in supporting the local hobby shop, so they'll stay in business. Anything I still have to buy (haha) comes from my local hobby store.
