I bought an SGrid account last week, and just tried registering for the conferences, but their server isn't taking my password. Does anyone know how to contact their admins for the conferences? There's no information on how to do that from what I've seen.

Thanks!

"Anyone want to trade a couple right front lower arms for a couple left front lower arms?
I'm going to go and get a couple pairs...but for some reason, I seem to only break left lower arms. Well, there's a good reason actually...the two fastest turns on our track are left and they both have vertical pipes on the inside. "

I think the front lower arms are the same other then a small nitch for the lower shock end to not rub on the arm.

Is the front lower left and right the same????

They're identical, except for the notch to clear the spring retainer.

I would definitely use one if I had to...but I think at full droop, the retainer would contact the arm.

What H2O fails to realize is we ran the same amount of laps on the first qaulifier. The second qaulifier he ran one lap more than me. But considering he has been racing buggy all winter/spring and it being my first buggy race since the summer of last year. I think ole H2O should be running circles around me and not running the same amout of laps as me!

I don't know if the old ones had the relief, but the current versions do...here are some pics of a left and right arm. Notice the reliefs on the front upper part of the arm where the shocks bolt on.

B mac, GOOD POINT ON THE H20
Mugen all the way or your a very FAST learner

Turbo,
Thanks for the pics. I saw the difference. In fact I had to change the left A arms out and did not see it until i ran a few races. Odd but I could not tell any different. Its kind of bothering me because I know the difference now. Maybe I sould change them or NOT

You can go here and send an email to the webmaster:

http://www.rc-racing.com/SGM/index.php

Just click on 'the Webmaster' in the Editor's Column box located in the center of the page. Keep trying, it will be worth it. I also had problems when I registered. The sgrid website is one of the most informative R/C websites IMO.

Default tanks

Did I hear correctly, that the team drivers were using the Jammin fuel tanks to replace the stock fuel tanks? It was something about the version 2 tank from Mugen flooding the carbs when refueling because the o-ring seated too deep in the tank opening. I am just trying to confirm before I have my LHS order one for me. I still have the rev.1 tank. I would like to upgrade to the correct one (that solves the problems) instead of having to buy 3 times.

The version 2 Mugen tank was updated to prevent the problem that you are describing. I upgraded mine to version 2 but I never had the problem with the 1st version.
