I have a question:
Is here anybody, who had a Razor from last Year, and an absolutely new Razor?
I had a Kit in Hand and the Bag with steel-parts. I had the feeling, that new pivot-balls have less weight than the pivotīs from kit last year. I was sorry, but i coulndt open the new kit-bag for checking the weight.
is here anybody, who can check this out?

I just got done buying three Razor 2's (one I'm donating to the GLC for a prize) and about 1000 bucks in parts. Long story short, if I have something anyone needs, give a yell.

What springs you use? The front looks like old blue Serpent? The original Green in the rear?
At my last Homerace, i had to use my Rain-Razor (1). And i had to drive with Rain-setup on dry track. And it was first time, that i had to use softer tyres in the rear as in front. I had to change a little my drive-style, but it was realy quick.

L,
Actually the front springs are Xray dark blue and the rears are the Edam greens. However, at this last race I attended, I put on some Mugen grey rear springs because the track was very bumpy, but the car was one of the best at handling the bumps. At that last race, I also shortened the wheelbase. I am currently getting ready to cut a new top radio plate to add a bit more flex, which will equal more traction. Should be interesting.

When shorting wheelbase, you slide the lower arms in front? How do you handle the space between lower arm and anti-roll-bar-holder?
And, for a little more flex:
Let only the two front screws from radioplate on front bulkhead i, loose them a little. Put away the upper screw from servosaber an put in a ....hmmmmm (translating) headless screw and loose a little the 2 screws from the rear radioplate-holder. the holes are a little longer than 3mm. This will give the chasis more flex But beware of crashes ....

Thanks Drew!

L-
The lower rears are spaced out with aluminum spacers, then thin washers to take out the minimal slop.
I'll have photos of the radio plate "manipulation" later this weekend.

Finally had a good chance to run the Razor2 up in Toledo last weekend. Managed to score a fifth place out of 10....with it locked in second gear the entire time. My screwup in setup was to blame for that, but the handling of the car was incredible. I have no doubt I would have done better had I been on top of the 2nd gear snafu (set the thing wrong, then too late to change) and I can't say enough about the handling of this thing. I'm looking very forward to the GLC, I think I'm going to do very well, indeed.

Sounds great Hitch. Good luck. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year as my series championships are this weekend. Keep us informed on how you do.

I'm pretty optimistic. I figured out the 2nd gear prob (my setup mistake) and I improved on the car in a few weak spots with parts I made myself. I'm positive I'm the equal of anyone handling wise...it's just a question of getting the engine up to 100 percent, and if I can do that, I should do ok.

One thing i knwo since last weekend:
The new Pivots have less weight, wil give the car more performance. BUT, the break realy fast if you have a little impact. The dont forgive Driver-Errors so easy as the older Steel pivots...
