lmslms, I did have the rear brake stick on me during a race this past weekend, but it seems to have been started by a small rock. I did notice a wear notch in the pads, so I swapped them around, inside to outside to be sure. Seems ok now.

arghh, well, I can attest to the cars durability, after Rc Pro east race#1 this past weekend. I didn't get anywhere near my potential with the car or my driving, but after brutalizing it during a couple races and even driving like a maniac for about 2 minutes(which i'm not real proud of, but can admit), it held up perfectly, only popping a shock end the whole weekend!..........And it went thru H-E, double hockey sticks!

Barnracer, yes, as long as you don't have to have "everything", you can put the rear suspension on pretty cost effectively. Which is the biggest improvement. If you want the milled chassis and aluminum top shaft, etc, it may get pricey and be worth a new kit.................Jim

I'm going to try to make the ROAR Mod Nationals, and one of the races at Lance Norrick's track in North Carolina. MAYBE a race in Ohio as well.

Other than that..it's perfect possible to miss way too many days of school and work by just attending races around here..haha.

Barnracer, we have a few drivers here who have been in the A main at the worlds and at National Events, even A nationals winner or two. Nothing like in California, but alot of the best racers out there moved there from another state to get better racing with the factory hot rods.......I'm sure there are alot of hot shoes around that may not be famous, since they don't travel as well on both coasts and the northern states too....Oops, fast guys in Texas I know also.

Anyhow, we have about 14 tracks I know of within 3 hours here, 11 off-road, 3 on-road...........We have had both the off road and on road worlds, as well as the anual TeamLosi race at Minnreg, the snowbirds, the longest running on road series ever, FSEARA, an off road state series also, etc.....so we do our fair share of racing in Florida too.........................Jim

Just can't beat California!

barnracer - There are big races all over the place and we're always on the road. A lot of the big names call CA "home", but that's only where we practice..haha.

Default Rear Camber links ?

Upper-Lower holes Long-Short links. How does this affect the 1/8th scale in terms of handling in the rear.
