BTW is there EVER going to be a meeting that involves both the old SBRCCA and the new EPIR or is what has happened going to be swept under the rug? (Again, something that I have asked since oh....POST 2)

Thanks Rezenclowd3 (Justin) Apology accepted, and let me know if you are interested in one or so of my 12th scales, I think I need to get myself a B44

Mike

Do you happen to have any new 12th scales? I think the only ones I am interested in are the CRC Gen-X, AE RC12R5, and the Serpent S120 (not out yet.) and the BMI DB12R. Maybe one of those in 10th pan version instead...I am really not sure yet. Do you have any tools you dont need? Like a tire truer, tweak board, way to set toe? Discharge tray? Any team much more items you dont want? Ill prob give you a call today if that is alright.

Nothing new they are L4 cars and the tire truer is not mine, so I really wanted to get rid of the cars and all the sets of tires and spares for the cars.

Default awesome racing

Last weekend was a blast ! Thanks to Mike and EPIR for putting on another great show. Not quite as big a turnout (though really close I think) and even though I broke halfway through the main I had a blast trying to dodge monster trucks with the J82..

Mike, the Lazer SP is on it's way as I type this

Can't wait to test out the 4wd durability

The lazer SP is very durable, I would say I have put mine through a beating and the only parts I have broken is the front knuckles and I have broken 3 so I would stock at least 2 sets if I were you, and arms are always a good thing to have too.

generaly The knuckles and hub cariers break at the same time so I would have to guess that you will still break the hub carriers and probably arms since you are ading aluminum into the mixture, let us know how it goes and if your breaking parts.

What motor are you planning to run?

Default oops..

oops, i was wrong.. while i did get spare hub carriers and knuckles for the front.. the aluminum parts i got are the rear hub uprights.. and actually.. i got two sets.. so maybe i'll be able to kick them down to somebody else who is in need, depending on how they hold up.

I have a mamba 6t brushless setup that i was planning on running.. though I may step to another setup if i have to to run in the class down in Camarillo when I make it down. What are your motor limitations down there?
