I see there is a few to select from, Do they make any medium/softs besides the ones listed?

BR-BA1-MS-A (medium/soft)

BR-BD1-S-A (soft)

BR-BB1-S-A (soft)

I may consider do some testing on the soft compounds. Our track is a bit aggressive reason for medium/softs when dry.

Also what is the stock flywheel diameter ?

Good luck to the guys headed to Shreveport, La.
The flywheel is standard 34mm, I thinkd Shawn and Nick have used the tires.
I have some coming in the order.

I havent personally used them YET but I know a gentleman here in Shreveport that has. From what he has said they work as good if not better than the Calibers but wear alot better. When the order comes in I will definately give my opinion of them...

Thanks guys! We will definately do our best to take some money from them and put Intech on the podium. As it stands now Intech has been on the podium at 4 races between the track here in Shreveport and Monroe. 1 3rd, 1 2nd and 2 1st with a TQ also. I hope to add 2 more podium finishes this weekend !!!!

Hey guys has anyone yet tried moving the front arms all the way forward for more wheelbase lengths.

Ive got the back at full length but unsure what moving the front forward will do to handling.

Anyone got any advice?

From what I gather, by adjusting lower control arm forward effects the caster angle which will get you more stability yet effect your steering effects.

Less caster(more vertical)-increases off-power steering into corners
-decreases on-power steering out of & in a corner
-decreases straight-line stability

More caster(block laid back)-decreases off-power steering into corners
-increases on-power steering out & in a corner
-increases straight-line stability

Thanks Bobby!

Shawn finished 3rd in sportman buggy, We helped Shawn out with the same set up that Hunter was using.

We arrived late saturday morning and only got a few tanks of practice before the battery lost pwer.

It was rocket round qualifing, 1st round ended up 5th overall
2nd round went up on shock oils and went down lower front chamer link.
Big help was now 3rd overall
3rd round went to Medium Cross braces and was on TQ pace overall but had 2 mistake so ended up 2nd behind Mike Bataille

Main event
Started well 2nd right behind Mike we was pulling away and I caught a pipe and rolled over , now in 4th did the samething the next lap
Ok now time to put it behind me and buckle down!!

caught up to courney tate and passed him, so now to try and catch Josh Glancey , kept making really good laps and catch Josh and we battled for about 3 or 4 laps and I really put in some grat laps and pulled away.

Ok time to try and catch Mike but he had 28 second lead on me with 7 minutes to go.
I kept putting in good laps with the Evo and I manged to only be behind by 12 seconds.

I set the track record yesterday and managed 2nd fast lap by .012 behind mike.
So in conclusion this buggy is very competitive and gives you the confindince to push hard and not worry aout breakage!!

I let a couple locals from the area to drive it and they were both very pleased with the Evo buggy, so it looks like we have a few more Intech drivers!!

I know when Russ and Shawn were working on his set-up and the 2 buggies were set-up the same I know Shawn yelled DANG and I looked at Russ and Started laughing....But the buggy seemed pretty dialed in for sure....Hunter did you see me pointing you in the right direction during the main...I know the R/D opened the window and was laughing his head off when I did that...

Russ and Hunter.. thanks a ton for the help and insight.

I know we made several changes to mine... Changes springs, shock oils, and roll centers mainly. It took me about 5 minutes to get accustomed to what the buggy wanted during the main.

I ended up with a TQ and 3rd in the main. The weekend proved good for NGD and Intech.... 2 Intechs and 4 Alphas on the podium...
