Well got the Ford fixed today. I been thinking she's getting tight and ready to blow as she been getting slower. Had to really push on her to go fasssttt. Well went to lube throttle pedal today. What do I see. Pedal is laying against floor. Yupper broke and didnt even fell it that bad. Wound up the bracket the connect to firewall was tac welded. all 3 spot welds broke off at mount. Got the ol' cordless out threw 2 1/4 bolts in her and fixed. Dam she goes now after a slight bend in throttle stop too.... I feel like I gained 100HP...

Funny you mention that. I was driving my Ford Ranger work truck a few years back and I kept pushing harder on the throttle but kept going slower no matter how much I pushed the throttle down. Well low and behold the plate lost its bolts to the firewall and pushing on the throttle just moved the plate and not the throttle.. A few new bolts and it was all fixed.

Just a quick note. It was the first round of the BRCA nats this weekend. I finished 17th in 19T with a few mishaps and with interference in quali in the 1st and 3rd round. At one point i was leading the B final from 6th but got hit . I was using TeamScream/eXpress motors with X2 brushes (trailing edge cut off), red-red springs and TeamScream comm break-in/drops with eXpress IB42 cells. I was geared at 5 and the car was great . Fast and had plenty of rip going out of the corners . Not sure how the 27T lot got on because the classes are all mixed up (19t and 4cell mod at 1 meet whilst Mod and 27t at the other). Next meeting is in about 3 weeks

Tag the new motors I got from you a few weeks ago ran great. 1st time running them since you sent to me. They where money!!!!!!!!!! I can say they knock turn marshalls on their a$$ with no problems. Hit a guy at full speed and laided him out. Lets say I bet he won't get in front of my car anymore.
