Thanks for the quick reply.I'll stick with the standard links. I would not buy any car that has the links exposed like the Associated. Been hit to many times broadside.

Well our outside season kicked off this past weekend and the I-Fource with the 235 conversion running 10.5 with 2 cell lipo and lets just say, the winter break did not slow it down. Was able to TQ / win the first of our 9 races and put a lap on the field.

Anyone else wanting to try this option, let me know and I'll get you on the right path!!

Same with the WGT car. Found a few things in the last 30 days that will help for setting making the car faster through the turns.

I would think Eric should have the cars into production in time for IIC.
Production cars very, very soon... If you'd like to preorder the 1/12 or 1/10 WGT cars, shoot me an e-mail at eric@darksidems.com

Well, I did not go to the ROAR Pavement Nationals, but Mark Burt is driving the proto-type WGT that we have been working on, and has put him self into 3rd qualifying spot.

Nice Job!!!

Wish him luck in the mains on Sunday.

Default ROAR Paved On Road Nationals

Mark Burt put the new WGT car onto the podium in the A-main with a great 3rd place finish. He had a great battle with the car finishing 2nd up to 3 laps from the end and he jsut got by.

Nice Job Mark Burt

Glad to see this car into production later this month. Should have several cars at the IIC event.

Mark I finished 2nd not 3rd! The car was running well just needed a little more tweeking. I definately believe the car has alot of potential, and I am curious as to what Eric is changing for the production version. I can tell you though, for ROAR races, you can only run the car in the long wheelbase position, as the short option is too short and not in the legal in the rules.

Eric, Let me know if you want pictures and a race report and whatnot and I will get them headed your way!

When I posted that, it did not appear that they were going to do triple a's for the class.

Lets talk in a few weeks about the chassis set up.

Sounds good, once jaco figures out the spec tire deal things will be better, the rib of yellow was so different it sucked on pavement, very inconsistant. I would love to try it with a good set of tires and see what shes capable of.

I've found that special tire set with the 235 conversion of the I-Fource, and would think it would work on the 200mm car as well. If you have a racing where you could try them, I'd send a set down for you to try. You just need to promise not ...... repeat .... not laugh at the tires, just try them and let me know.
