Tags- just got up to shocks and tie rods left to build. I guess I'll let you throw it on your setup board once you get it back and get electronics in it...

I only put cars up from this past carpet season, in the past 2 seasons, let's see here...

Yokomo SD --> EVOIV --> Yokomo SD --> TC4 --> Yokomo SD again --> BMI TC4 --> Factory Team TC4 --> FK05 --> Mi2 EC --> T2 --> 415MSX --> TBA

Each time I switched to the Yokomo, it was the same car. And I still have it. I made the A in stock with it at SnowBirds 2 years in a row and didn't change the setup. Then I switch to an Xray and do horrible at big races. Who knows on that one. I might just break out the old Yok for real just to get some laps on it. I tried it a couple times at Horsham, but I never really worked on the car to get it going.

Who knows what car is next. I've been thinking Corally - but I always want to be the different guy. Sure, it hurts when you have no help, but when you dial the car in, you feel pretty good about it.

My stable still includes...

Yokomo SD - Close to Race Ready
BMI TC4
Schumacher Mi2 EC Carpet Spec - Race Ready
XRay BMI T2 - Race Ready
Tamiya 415MSX - Race Ready

Maybe I should just get rid of all but one just for concentration purposes.
2 seasons? Hmmm lemme think about that one... Where to start....

Yokomo SD SSG --> RaySpeed SD --> Yokomo CGM --> 415 --> Evo IV --> TC3.5 --> TC4--> Yokomo BD --> TA05 --> FK05 --> 415MSX --> Surikarn Cyclone

Of course before all that was the TA03R, YR4M2 Pro, Street Weapon, MR4TC Special, TC3 x2, 414M2, EvoIII, XXX-S, and XXX-S G+... Damn I'm a car whore!! But that's why I like the hobby. Soo many cars to choose from. I think my favorite car though was the Yokomo SD RaySpeed version. As for picking one car and sticking with it.. I've said that before... haha... But I'm gonna try to with the Surikarn.....

I thought Brian and I were the only guys that couldnt make up our minds on a chassis. Ever since I started racing electric cars,

EVO III, TB02R, 415, 415MSX, FK05, RDX

I'm going to stick with the Corally for a while, its a great car with lots of corner speed. Now all I have to do is figure out what works on set ups.
Then again, thats where my heros Robbie and Dan come in.

I have done it alot thats for sure but I feel better that a few guys have me beat. Since I run for Schumacher I guess I will get new cars when they come out with them. I like the purple and the car works well for me and the support that Paul and Adrian at Schuie have given me so far has been excellent. They are very helpful.

I'm afraid to post all the touring cars I have tried. Let see if I can remember most of them. In no certain order:

Schumacher 98 SST, 99SST, Axis I, Axis II, Mission, MI2 EC (Current ride and Sponsor), 2ea FSR Bullets, 2ea BMI TC3's, BMI TC4, FT TC4, Tamiya 415, TB-02, TA03-F, TA03-R (Still have and not for sale),TL01, Losi Street Sled, 3ea XXX-S, 2ea JRX-S, BMI Pro4, RDX, Nitro FSR Bullet, Yokomo SD, 2ea MR4 TC Pros, Alex Racing R2 Cuda, Xenon R2 Cuda, 2ea R3 Cuda's and I think that is it. Forgot the Cyclone as my buddy has mentioned to me.

Whew that made my head hurt thinking about it.
