yeah that truck was real quick, but had either seriously sucky tyres and/or inserts.

have a look in the first row or two, the pic with a bunch of trucks. hes not even 1ft from exiting a hair pin turn and they are balooned like that!

time for some proline ultra firm grey inserts!

i bought this buggy off ebay and it came with it. it was a bit low on compression so today i repinched the sleeve to get a bit more life out of it. i've heard those sportwerks motors are really good too. how much are they?

I think the main plug that most people use is the OS P3. Its the one that i run in my VSpec.

its dodgy, and of course you would only do it to an engine as a last resort.. but i know a few ppl who got several more litres thru a tired engine with that resize trick.

aint bad for the low cost of a $1 automotive clamp eh?

How many V Specs were in the A final at the state titles? How many Sportwerks .21's were in the final and where did they finish?

I dont think anyone else's motors could make 11 minutes off a tank like Jarrod's and mine did either.

i might very well be wrong, but i think the Vspec also comes with less reliability until you spend some dosh on decent crank bearings before your motor grenades?

seems a few at mv have had short lifes with the vspecs due to main bearings?
