Jeremy, I thought about it but I bought 4 sets of tires instead. Are you running a li-po, if so which one and what voltage regulator are you using?
Do you have a problem getting the car to rotate, if so, I tried a couple things out recently and all I can say is Wow! I first went to 56(Drilled) -27.5 in the rear shocks, I epoxied the holes shut and drilled in between the epoxied holes with a 56 bit. This supported the rear end a little better. Second I went to 1-a rear camber, didn't allow the rear to roll as much, gave a little less rear side bite. Last, I moved the rear hubs forward .030, which was the biggest feeling change I made.

I havent got up enough nearve to try the LiPo thing yet considering i manage to blow up NiMH batteries at times, but they sound awsome for the runtime advantage.

My car seems to rotate ok, but i am gonna try some of that to see what it does. The hardest part for me was to get the car "freed up" in the turns. I went to the Mugen +2MM hubs and that made a big differance for me. Also the 2degree anti-sqat/2degree rear tow plate worked well for me too. I put the M2C one on and i like the way the car feels with it alot better than the standard Losi plate

Jeremy I took my 2mm hubs off and it made my car seem more planted. The 2mm hubs made my car feel 'numb'. I have been looking at the m2c plates but didn't make the plunge yet.

Had a Great time at the HARDING RACEWAY on Sunday evening want to thank Dan and Travis for laying down the smooth surface. And Dan for inviting us over.

I think this track needs a nickname like the "BULLRING". It was Loads of fun!!

Can't what to come out and play again maybe next weekend.We'll see.

Lap times in the high 3 second range with stock 6cell in 1/10 truck.
We run two races one with TT01 for 5min run with Dan taking the win with 53 Excitement filled laps.
And 1/10 stock truck With Gearld putting a whooping on Dan and I with 55 laps.

Later
Jeff

OK, Nitrohouse is HORRIBLE! Please do not order from them unless you speak Stupidish.

I ordered online, they called because they messed up my credit card number, I gave them my correct number, they messed it up again, I called and gave them the correct number again! I called to double check the status today and after the guy asked me for my info 3 times and then waited for 5 minutes on hold, I found out my order still has not been sent.

Horrible!
