Here is the Carbon fiber chassis comparison video. It is quick and dirty so don't base your science thesis on it.

My new body for starting 2010 season (i hate 1/7th scale DM ONE only have today THIS option of body lol !!) :







Not a single extra mod planned for March event, will race with same car i race in my country.

First race of year yesterday, qualified in 2nd position, great start but i got serious Spektrum receiver problems keeping entering into failsafe mode during the final, so finally ended in 4th position and suffering a lot.

Hope to make it better in future,

cya !!

At Homestead RC Raceway the fence and fence posts that seperated the race track from the parking lot have been removed. This Saturday we will set up a crude temporary course using cones and such that expands the existing track into the former parking lot area.

We will have several very well qualified drivers running their cars, some have competed at the highest levels of racing in all parts of the world. We will document and evaluate everyones feedback during the day and adjust the course as they suggest.

After the test on Saturday, the track crew will begin taking care of flaws that may be found on the racing surface in the new area. When this is completed we will invite everyone back for another test and more evaluation.

I will try to get someone to take a few pictures on Saturday. I am not sure these will be very helpful because of the crude markers we will be using in the expansion area.

The attached image is for Pato. This is one of the suggested track layouts. Just joking, Pato!!!!!

A few post back they are talking about a track change. It's going to be bigger and better. so at this time I don't think anyone knows. I will have all possible gearing with me when I come.
