Does anyone know how much Sorex 24R's and Sorex med type B inserts are at the shop. Also, does anyone have a Setup Station they can sell for under $100?

Many thanks Marc

Matt,

Scotty has been running his F201 up there the last couple of weeks and there's at least 1 or 2 more also.

Everyone thinks that I'm running a F201 but I've been running my old F103 that I got back a couple of weeks ago thats fitted with a F201 shell to show that a F103 with a F1 shell is just as quick if not quicker than a F201 without buggy wings or the red barrons bi plane as a back wing on a blob of lexan. It set tq first night out and has always been able to match Scotty's lap times (driver hasn't always got his head screwed on for the full race tho).

Trev when are we going to see a return of F1 back to the way it was intended with only F1 shells I think it's about time.

Apparently the P2K2 (torque) is better for CH but many fast guys use the Monster stock,

When Running stock on my 04 I used a P2K2 with a rollout of about 30,

if you cant beat them, join them,

I have now got a nissan R-390 body on the delphi now,
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...p?&I=LXHAK2&P=

it seems to provide a bit more downforce and is much less affected by side contact/hacks, but it along with the extra mounting gear has added heaps of weight and the car is now a pig off the line and top speed,

Rod why do you feel you need to join them haven't we proved that yet you dont need to run a lemans shell. Again last week I was 0.3 of a second faster than any other F103 in the final just some poor driving by me and others didn't help overall result.

I agree, I would preffer to run the original indy/F1 style shell/wings,

but, the front end of the delphi is weak as shit and any moderate hit on a bag/wall/car and the arm snaps, the lemans body and TC bumper seems to be helping quite a bit in this regard.
