Yes, Pike River has permanently closed and Sanair remains the only place to race Nitro cars (at this time, we are only racing 1/8th Nitro on-road, but would be happy to consider a new class if there was sufficient interest).
Hope this helps.
Pics updated into OP if your wondering why the engine has been filed down on the side, it's to fit a custom roll cage that's just needing to get painted and mounted.
Thanks, im going to have to check it out. Sanair is a bit far, and Im running a 1/10 but I'm picking up a Savage XL Truck next week (I'm a nut) I'm looking local where I don't have to drive out. You know schedule hook ups at lots for Draggin & Tracking.
On another note I had to do some repairs today. Nailed a parked car f-ing around. Just understeered into it. I figured out why I was having understeer issues and fixed it. I had the steering arm coming off the servo uncalibrated & I was getting sharp left handers & understeering when going right.
Everything seemed allright, but today when doing some speed runs the CV joint (where the front dogbone turns the joint/wheel hub) broke off & I went 3WD lol. Just for kicks I pulled both front dogbones and rand RWD for a Bit, surprisingly she ran great but suffered severe understeer both ways. The exhaust manifold loosened up so I called it a night.
Got her home, had 1 last spare Dogbone already connected to a wheel hub. I installed it, & the other side that I removed to go RWD. I cleaned up the exhaust manifold and threw on a new gasket and some lock tight on the screws and hooked it back up.
So it's back in AWD mode & I got rid of my understeer. I need new tires badly, I'm getting some sent to me on a new set of rims, & getting some vintage tires & rims to go with the Challenger body I ordered
I'm just going to mess with it until the new tires and rims come in, no point Tuning with the baldies I got on now, plus with me messing around doing doughnuts I burnt off whatever was left of them.
