well i have to say that my 1st impression of the xxx4 was a bad one.although i did change somethings on the car which made it a little better...but not good enouph i think to be competetive.i will have to see if i can score a diff for it.and im going to try to score the plastic hubs as well.and i was having a problem that when landing from a jump my car would go full throttle and i had no steering either....roeder and i talked and it might be my rx in the car.so im going to swap out with a different rx and try it again another day...it will be a couple weeks though prolly.

we will see.

congrats on the wins today guys.

Matt, That sounds like a radio problem to me. I'm sure you'll get it figured out.

It was great just to see 6 or 7 electric vehicles in the main today. Its obvious the 4wd buggies can turn faster laps, but, so far my stadium truck is still competitive. Congrats to Roeder on limping his car to the win and a shout out to Allshouse who broke while in the lead.

McGhee won an extremely competitive 1/8 scale main and Chuck won Truggy.

Amazing.......you forgot about the most important highlight of your day..........you know, when you tried to stab me with your tuning screwdriver!!! I did not sleep last night because I kept thinking you were somewhere close waiting for me to go to sleep so you could finish me off! And don't think I didn't see you staring at me at Al's with that fork in your hand either!

I aphologize for barking at you Gixxer, but I was aware it was running rich.

What can i say, tuning engines makes me cranky.

That's pretty much exactly what I've been dealing with too. It just drives me crazy that results a dictated by how your carburetter is working as the weather conditions change.

Ed -- I lied, I haven't sent your motor out yet. Tomorrow, I promise!!

One way to tell if you have an overly rich bottom end is to listen to your engine AFTER the longest straight. If it struggles in the infield after the straight, and the temps are normal but it struggles to get RPM's it COULD be rich bottom, lean top. I would suggest returning the needles to stock settings and tune the HSN needle, then tune the LSN.
