Not bad for a rent-a-ride from my pit box!

Darkside 1st, 3rd and 7th (I was running down the leader in 2nd when a link let loose, I probably "adjusted" in an early heat. So all in all a good day on a large carpet track. E - has retained possesion of the car this week to try it on our small local track, and to write down the set up that I put him off with. We only made two small changes for the day.

Nice Job Eric!!
Thanks! I had a fun time running the 1/12 road course chassis this past weekend. Thanks to Grenade for the good set-up. The car was a pleasure to drive. Looking forward to more of this soon!

With Carpet nationals being in Omaha on the 12 - 16th of March, maybe we can get Eric to keep with it and run nationals!! Would be good to have a Darkside pit area!!!

Do any of you guys know what changing the length of the link? Im running the links in the long position and Im wondering what it will do if i decide to shorten them?

Also, I have one race under my belt with it and have had very good luck with the car, its working awesome but I just want to make it better so I can be ready for the birds.

I've got my thought on this, but I'm looking to see what others to have say on this before my 2 cents.

...and he can also swing through Billings on the way to Omawho(?). The great North Loop. We'd treat him like the king he is!!

i guess you should spill the beans here lol. Also, have you tried adding more shims under the front of the link to give it a bit of rear steer? think itd be useful?

I took my Mx2 out of the mothballs yesterday and did some racing up at Maximus in Maine. The car has not been run in about a year and it looked as great as it did last time it was on the track.

Eric-You have pics? Shoot me an email......

Darkside Motorsports will be closed from January 27th until February 6th while we attend the 2008 Snowbird Nationals. Any orders placed during that time will be shipped upon our return. If you are attending the race, be sure to stop by and see us at our pit spot on mfr's row.
