Just a quick thanks to Marcus for helping me break in the motor and set up the 2 speed and such today. Car ran well. need a few sweeks like smaller spur.... had a ton of bottom end... motor is strong.. but tops out almost 1/4 way down the straight. Good times even if the track was not preped

Very nice Aaron, I'm gonna try to sneak out to make the first round of racing tomorrow, but I will have to take my son back to finish playing in his basketball tournament later in the afternoon. Hope I can keep up with you, that body looks FAST!

I am going to try and make an exhaust outlet similar. After the break in, I put a few laps in (after I got the 2 speed adjusted) and wow, the right rear tire and body had junk caked on it...

Not sure what everyone else does, but here is what I came up with. Cut front and top of outlet, fold it back. Then I took another piece of lexan and folded top and bottom to create kind of an open funnel. Shoe gooed it to the flap I created and then secured it with the hi tech method called standard staples. Seemed to work pretty good. Also shoe gooed behind my fold on the body to help strengthen the fold.

Update:
Been a little quiet this week! Last sunday I was able to test the short rear shocks and stock front springs in the rear. It felt good but needed to make some other changes, the rear rotates on entry more and seems to transition better but the front is digging a little bit. So i am going back up to the white front springs and went to a smaller rear sway bar for testing on monday. Next week is the Novarossi challenge and I am going to "tweet" the event and leading up to it! So follow me @mantisworx #novarossichallenge2013

The rear shock tower kit will consist of a tower, front shock bodies and short shaft set price will be around 100 for the conversion but havent finalized it just yet. I am waiting to find out how many of the shock sets i can get ahold of.

Other than that the car is pretty much the same. I made a new rear wing for the MT body that i like.

A local customer named Alton purchased a kit from me a few weeks ago and was having issues getting it to handle right . His car was box stock and the setup was off so i suggested the front 10*carriers, 2stage pistons and a 45/41 gear set for his 9 port. He installed everything and i met him at the track to get it dialed in. The ill handling was mostly from the droop settings being way too high and shock positions were not optimal. So we fixed the droop along with the 2 stage and hubs and the car came alive! I drove it HARD for about a tank, came in and changed the shock positions . He proceeded to run the next tank or two on his own and the car was a dream for him to drive! TeamC will have a good showing next week I am sure of!

Oh and pre-orders for the Delrin gear sets will be up in a day or so. They have been indestructible thus far! Those that pre-order and are coming to the event next weekend i can just bring them with me along with some sets of SWEEP tires, pistons revised arm sets and whatever else i can bring including spare parts just incase.
