hmm

i really need to get new hop ups
like
slipper clutch
smaller spur gear* but i dont think tamiya offers smaller ones only a 91 any 3rd party brand make em?
new shocks ,, as well as the mounts. i dono what their called but they have it on the DB-01r . not those ball mounts they pop out all the time.
new tires for the front wheels
sway bar
the alum front and rear suspension mounts

etc etc gosh im so sh'' with these things ==

Slipper clutch is a good addition, what motor are u running in it? im assuming it must be pretty powerful if ur breaking belts, the slipper kit for the db01 is about $30 usd, i have one i can sell u for $30

the 91 spur is fine if ur running mod, but if u want smaller spurs, the associated b4 spurs are a direct fit for the db01 and they fit in the slipper setup also

yeah i think ur talking about the damper bushing

sway bar i wouldnt bother with, tyres are always good

if ur talking about the mounts where the arms pivot from, i've heard they are worth is as apparently the db01 plastic ones flew a bit too much in an accident and the arms can pop out

all the best with it, as i say, im happy to help, u only need a few things to make ur car a lot more reliable and its much cheaper than a whole new car

So how much rain has the track had?
We have had plenty at Blacktown and it's a long way to drive to find out it's called off.

its raining atm.. albeit lightly, but consistently..

Doppler radar shows lots of moisture in the air, so rain for at the very least all morning..

Pretty wet here in Ryde but looking at the radar it is only extending out to the mountains and then it is clear, but it all depends on how much water is on the track.

Todays racing is cancelled
Bad news guys, Roman is at the track and there is too much standing water on it to be able to race today,
If you want to watch some I'm sure the vintage guys will be running at Castle Hill
