Get the SCB I love mine and more parts are available now compared to a few weeks ago. I should make it out this week for practice. A few guys at Paddock's track told me i should just go straight to racing. We'll see, I've never driven on FF tracks.

Default Wow

Thanks Kenny & the FF crew for a awesome smooth program last night.! My Scte is getting better but still have a few things to dial in to get up with all you guys. Not 1 or 2 but 3 heats of pro 4 WOW.! I had a blast & I can't wait to get out there for the next one.

Default New faces

There are a ton of new racers showing up all the time in electric, and I met a new one in nitro truck too! Woohoo! We need more 1/8 trucks out there. Patrick Brown and team brought out the AE last night for his second night of racing ever, and did really well for racing less than a week. If anyone has setup sheets for AZ tracks please post them or links to the sheets so he can set it all up.

Speaking of setup help, I'm trying to figure out a couple things on the Losi 8T-2.0. Are the front and rear brake disks supposed to be the same size? The rear disk pinches between the motor flywheel and the right-side stock motor mount. Do I need to shave front of the motor mount? Or the brake disk? The flywheel just clears the chassis cutout towards the back. If I shim the flywheel forward, the front clutchbell bearing would be pushed past the end of the crankshaft.

thanks guys

Great job Kenny, Chris and FF crew. Perfect night of racing.

Hopefully, 2WD buggy will keep growing as this is one of the funnest cars to drive.

4x4 SC, awesome turnout. I am able to go 10 minutes now with the Truhe system running 14t but I am good with 8 minute mains as your not having to push your electronics to its limits.

2 heats of Novice, awesome, this is where the hobby grows. Daughter making the Amain was a proud moment for me.

Oh, pit table with lights and outlets is the bomb. Can I reserve my pit spot? lol.

Default mesh/mount

I think i found it, let me know if I'm correct. The stock mount is more for the Losi flywheel/clutch sustem, and the LOSA9155 quick change mount givs you the option to move your motor forward 2mm for aftermarket/stock flywheel/clutch combos.

Think that's what I need? If anyone runs/knows M2C clutch/flywheel combo on Losi, let me know.

Last night was a good night at FF. I couldn't believe how many people were out there! Pro 4 has EXPLODED there over the last four months! I was stoked to see there was enough for an all truggy class, even though we're running on the little track for now. Monster truck is still trying, most of the MT regulars seem to be sticking to Thursdays though.

Big thanks to Kevin! I ran in to his 8T2.0 at least 95 times in the 2nd qualifier, then he helped me get mine back together for the main. Thanks again Kevin, you're the man!

Can we get a time frame on the first race on the big track with the new layout? I need to plan ahead for Saturday racing. TIA

Thanks Trevor on the 22 help. Appreciate the help and those option parts are coming. Get that 22 done for Kenny, so we can get some grudge matches going.

I already have one with Brandon. He buys my B4 and comes out and beats me with it on his first time out. Kid is good and will get better.

See you Thursday.
