Hey guys I just started a new thread on the electric on road side so we can discuss more about this and don't get anyone upset on the nitro side here.

I learned a lot today at the track. I now know what to do with the caster, camber, springs and tires. These will come into play after I raise the front of the car. It is too low and when braking and turning the chassis hits the ground thus taking the load off the tires resulting in severe under steering. Too low, Dang!

Maybe Orion? Their "8" system works well on my VE buggy. No problems at all, doesn't heat much with 2 4S lipos.

Tough break, at least you set the TQ for the event, that shows you were "On"
What was the laps & time of your TQ?

Would also be cool to see the GT qualifing results too.

Must have been a fun race weekend, can't wait to race with you guys in September.

Question......

Does buggy based GT cars still employ the front kick-up on the chassis plate?

Kyosho has a kick up. The Ofna dose not. Roar when they start making rule said they will have to have a kickup.

There was a rumor that ROAR was going to grandfather in the DM-1s but all other manufacturer entries after that would have to produce a car with front kick-up or their car won't be legal.
