Ed, I was talking with Jared Tebo, yes *that* Jared Tebo, and he says that sometimes there isn't an adjustment for every obstacle on the track. He says that sometimes you have to change your driving style or pick a different line. Since I have been trying that approach, things work out better.

My point being that since I have got my baseline setup, I really don't change things other than the tires. So if my GT2 setup works at McCullough's, it should work at Altoona, except for maybe a couple *minor* things like gearing, or tires, or the wheelbase. The biggest thing with the deuce is the same tires on the front as you have on the rear. Now I realize your not going to pin IMFAR studs on the front, but you could run IFMARs in the rear and Holeshots up front.....

Gary, thanks. I know what I did wrong at the Pro Series. I was trying too hard. I need my dad there, he knows how to calm me down and fire me up. That will never happen, he's always too busy working on his hobbies.....

I will most likely stick w/pan car but if we get a good field of sliders I might switch up....just looking for imput

Default Springs

Brad
I knew I had the spring chart in my binder somewhere.
Heaviest to softest
Silver, Gold, Green, Black
I am running gold on 7075 alum. and green on comp.
My carb only opens to 74% of full open, maybe try limiting the EPA to tame that thing down a little more!

Altoonas Finest- I was wondering about what engines everyone over there is running in thier Gas Trucks? I thought while we were there that I overheard some of the guys were running the Dynamite Platinum .12 (blue head, not the red headed SPD). Ant comments,opinions ,or suggestions would be great as I have this engine coming for the NT...thanks,

When might you guys unveil the RC8??? I guess I'm asking who out there is first in line for it when it comes out... I would say fast Ed T. ,but he says he's done with Scale.

CR- Whats up Man? How's the 8ight running and how soon are you coming to McCulloughs again? Don't forget to bring SAM! Thanks for the clutch spring chart. On a side note Last week Doug and I went 1-2 just 2 seconds apart(with 8ights I might add) with 3rd 18 seconds behind us with a mugen. For the Losi Faithful of Altoona

Dux, Myself and Chuck Meyers are running the Dynamite Platinum .12. I used to run OS CVR and a Wasp for bit last year. Compared to those, the Dynamite has much better reliability and consistancy. Once it's broke in and tuned, it will idle without loading up and allways put out decent power and glow plugs will last for months.

But it's not the fastest engine out there - Good off the line, OK midrange, top end a bit lacking. I have yet to run a full gallon through it so it may get better. I've noticed most engines dont hit full song until about a gallon.

Just 2 weeks after the cash race and we didnt have enough Gas Trucks to run the main this past Sunday. Watching the 1/8 scale main almost made me want an RC8. Maybe next year. Since carpet season arrives in October, I'm looking at touring cars instead.

FYI, after running nearly every 1/8 scale on the market, Doug and Chuck Meyers both switched back to 8ights and proclaimed them by far the best buggies out there (provided the servos last).

That set up sheet is intense Brad. After reading those brushless rules it is apparent to me that you can gain advantages with different rotors...uh!

I had to get rid of an assistant at work which means I will have to work more until a replacement is found so I am officially calling it quits for the remainder of the outdoor season. If we can come Joel will run and I will just annoy Brad. My attendance at the RAC is questionable. We will at least be there this Sunday.

Thanks Ed! Just the kind of insight I was looking for about the engine... What happened to the GT class??? When we were there it seemed that you guys had all gravitated towards the the 2wd works of art...

Pipester-http://mcculloughsrcracing.com I'm not the most computer savy person and if this is wrong I'm sure that Forman knows how to fix it...

Doug and Chuck- welcome back to the Darkside... Must've been fun "test driving" until your final conclusion was reached... The car Will restore your winning ways, and I'm sure the pointers and shooters of other 1:8 scale brands in Toon Town now tremble in fear...
I've never had any servo issues with the car, other than when we were in Altoona and my throttle servo began to heat up. I think that it was Gixxer who recommended cutting the air vents on each side of the body, now all is well, Thanks... Out of curiosity how many rubber o-rings are yinz running under the rear of the radio tray 1-2-or ?... And are you running the servo spacers? if so with or without the rubber grommets? I have been running 1 O- ring under the battery box, and the servo spacers only, no grommets... been this way since the car was built. Also what types of servos are most guys running in the car? I'm using Ace 1015's... Same specs as the Air. 358-359,but they're digital and somewhere around $95... vs the $110-$130 for an Airtronics or a JR...I haven't yet had a servo go, but I've seen and heard horror stories about the 8ight being servo hungry... Talk to Yinz later...

Thank's C.R. My throttle is limited to about 60% I'd say. I'm going to try your clutch setup. Or I might just take out the 7 port and go with the three for the rest of the season. Bigger is not always better. The four alum with green and black springs was awesome on the picco 3 port. I was driving alot better before I switched engines! Also thank you for your pit help!!! I know sometimes other peoples questions can be anoying when your trying to get your own stuff accomplished! Again thank you!


Bigger is not always better.........There you go GrEg!

GDUX, I only run one o-ring under the battery side of the radio tray! I also added a King Headz radio tray stiffener and run the servo "loose" not tightend down. Have not had any probs since I did this. KNOCK ON WOOD. Sam Crawford is the one who told me about cutting out the air dams in the body.....so I can't take credit for that one, but it does help! I am running a JR ST126MG. Fairly cheap and I'm glad for that since I'm on my third one!!!
