That is odd....both the '09 and '10 versions are the same length on mine. Both of them measure to 104mm when placed flat along the calipers. It must be the holes in the chassis then. Any suggestions guys?

Thanks Mr. Obvious!! I could drill a new hole in the brace also. I could use a shorter brace and drill a new hole so that it does not intersect the two that are already there.

I'm looking for something not so obvious that I may have over looked.

You can use the shorter brace from the buggy. Only has one hole and should not interfer with the existing holes. Next time we put in an order we can get the longer/correct one. You can use your plastic one to test fit and drill and I have an aluminum one you can have.

We have several guys running E-buggies, it is a matter of personal choice which way you go. Come on out to the track and drive one of the electric before you make your decision.

FYI, the kit from Tower will not include motor, ESC, batteries or charger.

Default advertising

hey guys just thought i would ask before doing so. i was wondering if you guys ie. (Jon, Iggy, Ken, Anthony) would mind if Josh and I did some advertising for the track to get more people intersted in this. Just so we could kind of get everything cleaned up and make it look presentable if we do something big in the future. I was thinking of making some fliers and handing them out at couple of major installaions and am trying to get the track on AFN radio. I think if we got the word out things could go a little better and faster. also possibly getting some good dirt from a location; transporting is the problem. A TSgt at work wants to get involved and we were thinking of making a site just for this track on his old 4X4 web site. Please let me know ASAP if you would like for me to do this and any inputs you may have. Attached is the flier I made tell me what you think.
