Default Xxx-ke2

I diddn't see a thread for this yet so I thought i would get one started.

I really like the the KE2 because they got rid of all the blue plastic and the new transmission and suspension should make tuning easier and more versitile. I cannot wait untill it comes out.

I think the arm changes is a nice feature...but it weakens the arms so on real off-road tracks and not dirt road courses it seems that the arms may break a lot easier...but now and days a lot of the tracks have maybe 1 or 2 jumps where the car gets 6-8inches off the ground. I think those arms will not last on a track like the tiltyard..where your car can get about 3 feet off the ground over the big jumps.

No blue wheels I loved them. Oh well, the old wheels would still fit.

It's about time Family is getting a nice surface on it at night. Especially with a little water and swept corners

Yeah, I've heard that... I guess it's time for me to get out there, since it's only a 15 minute drive rather than 90 mins

I'm not going to make it this Friday. I have inventory at work all night plus I just sent my radio in to Airtronics. My range has gone to nothing. I got a glitch that won't go away. If I get more than 30ft. away it goes nuts. We spent all day yesterday eleminating all other possibilities while we were at Corona. Drove all the way up there and didn't finish any qualifiers and didn't even run the main.

They're open until 9. But Patrick is going to be in Indianapolis. The ass is going to the US Grand Prix and not taking me
