umm...dont do it..some people will say that it helps..but from experience..have tried a bunch of different combos..from front window, to side windows, to rear holes...doesnt help..if anything it actually makes it worse...and for your info the blitz body is actually probably the least prone to the kite effect

I cut the back area on mine during those last few windy race nights...didn't make a difference to me. Depends on who you ask though - the RC car mags tell you to go for it.

Just saying, the AKA's work really well for me on that track with the normal track prep.

All this setup talk for Short Course kills me. If you want your car to drive, steer, jump. fly, stop good, Etc. buy a XXT or T4

It will be interesting, to put it mildly... Keoni should charge admission

Here are some pics.... hopefully not as memories of how it used to look




You should bring this out for Sunlakes race on the 30th and run 45 min main.
Pretty much all the local 1/8th scale drivers will be there.

i had a lot of fun with my blitz last night, sucks i did a bobble after the straight, and lost my bump spot, i was running good too. that 4 degree of toe helped a lot. Now i just gotta play with shocks
