Brad, You're welcome, but all I did was just set the toe & droop. You did the homework and found the set up that worked and figured out what to change to get your car dialed up for our track.

You were driving the wheels off it in the main until the esc acted up.

Thats what its all about!

Sam, I still want the motor I will be in touch!
Brad - You still haven't 'touched' me yet...thank god! How do you want me to get this motor to you? I can mail it or maybe meet up after work. Or maybe Jum can pick it up or I can drop it off at his work.

Just ran the MBX-6 at McCullough's over the weekend and must say I like it. Even with Doug's Altoona setup (which should be way off) it was alright. I only 1/2 tank of practice in and lightened the shock oil before the first qualifier. I made a couple other quick changes between rounds and it got better and better. I didn't have much time between rounds to change shock pistons/oil, diff oil, and a few other things so I'm going to go out there on Friday to get the car dialed in if anyone else wants to run some offroad. All of the other buggies had problems so I ran in the main with the truggies. The track was starting to freeze and it was a little slick for the main. I got beat up a little running with the big trucks but didn't break anything...they were a little rough on me the last 2-3 laps.

Doug will read that and never speak to me again...I meant that the setup should be way off for that indoor track...Doug's car looked dialed at Altoona.

AlwaysInThePipe.......Trust me on this, you need a Mazda 6 part #PF 1465. The R-9 has to much steering and no down force. There is a thread on tech about this and Proto is re-doing the R-9 to have a less aggresive nose.

Sam I will CALL you toward the end of the week!
