Took a ride up to PA for a little testing and got the Schuie as good as I can get it for now. I went from a 15.7 to a 14.2, Big thanks to Team mate Larry Fairtrace for the tuning knowledge. I was stuck on 14.5s most of the day, its like I had a govenor on the thing. After a while no matter what I did to the car I was very consistant with 14.5s. I made one last change and got a bunch of 14.3s and then a 14.2 Thats about 1.2 seconds off Larry and Schreff with Tags Losi.

So much for just throwing a one-way in the car and wheel'n it

Kling- that's how I feel. With the mandated circumstances, I feel like it's as good as it gets. Been all over the car,one way and spool, and the laps are stuck. Guess at this point it's just time for a freshening and pack it away.

Yeah, I just got done re-building my car. I'm sure we'll all be on the same page at the race. I'm really looking forward to this one

Joey and I will be coming up for some carpet soon. Rubber for me at the Birds are in the plans. I am in the process of deciding on a new car. Since I consider the Express team a very fast and talented group of racers I would like input on what car to get for rubber carpet. Of course I have the T2 so I am leaning towards the T2007 but I am open to suggestions. I can get the Schuie at a good price but I need good setup advice so I am not so sure about it. So give me your ideas Team Express and pm me if neccessary I know you have certain loyalties, that I do not want your advice limited to.

Hey Rod..

Cars.. Wow thats e easy and touch choice..LOL

Most inportant.. Support on products you need to keep running, I would first look into which car your sources carry parts for. Getting parts is the #1 test.

As far as cars myself, I do like the build and part of the Losi car. Real easy car to build and really smooth driving car. Parts support too is great. Car is pleasure to work on for sure...

We do have some drivers running Corally and Associated cars along with X rays. All the mentioned also have good parts support and many our drivers do share set up sheets thru there car company sites or would via PM.

I would focus on somothing you car share local info with and what has the best parts support for you. There all great cars.....

Hey rubber tire racers. The Halloween Classic is offering a rubber class this year. We need 20 entries to run. Brushless 13.5 and lipos are allowed. It's kind of an exhibition class to allow all of the new technologies and to get some rubber tire action going at the Gate.

Any of you planning on going? Stock rubber and 19t foam for myself.

L8r,
rob

I'll be there, just not sure what classes I'm going to run. I'm not going to dump $ into brushless/lipo equipment for one race.

Might just run stock foam.

Run stock foam and stock rubber. You do not have to run brushless/lipos. It is an option. I will be running a brushed stocker with some nimh's... F it!

HOW CAN YOU POST SOMETHING LIKE THIS!!!! I know you haven't built your own kits since I have known you.

FK'05 was built by you know who!
Corally RDX by the one and only ROBBBBBIE DODGE!
and the Losi has seen the inside of a USPS truck more than its seen the track! I bet you got more in shipping to PA for Steak and Larry to wrench on your car than you have in the actual car! LOL
