Just got back from the track a little while ago. In mod truck (running an eXpress C2 19T and 3800's) managed to qualify 3rd and finish 3rd in the A-main. I was running away with the main until the switch on my ESC decided it didn't work properly and cost me a few laps. I was averaging about 5 seconds a lap faster then the guys running brushless's and they were VERY impressed with the eXpress HP!

I didn't even get the new batts together in time for saturday. Practiced at Jackson Sunday with the new stuff and the car felt even stronger. The Nats are going to be interesting...

I never ran my Corally there but as I got the car from Robbie car was real good down here with what he used so I would use his set up as starting point..

Kling take your car to Frederick and get it dialed in. From their to Jackson then just soften up the springs 1 set and oil 5wt lower. Ride height at 6 with 1.5 to 2 rear toe with either a MAzda6 or Stratus All purpose and you will be really close.

I took my 415 from retirement and just went softer on my setup and it was great.
