Building one now. Be very careful not to strip out the button head screws that hold the shock tower on, it seems these screw heads are very soft (and I dud use the cutting screw and a longer one too).

Button head screws in general have a shallower socket for the wrsnch to fir into and that's why they strip more easily than cap or flat heads. You can use some 3/8" flat head screws and some countersunk washers there or just countersink the tower and look pimp.

My BK2 is excellent. I had 2 personal best times this last weekend at Trackside. Former Team Associated driver Randy Konruff drove my buggy and said it was "Scary good". So that made me feel bad since I was TQ - of the B.

The buggy isn't much different than the old Kinwald edition, but it is better.

Tonight is the Debut of RC Scoring Pro at Trackside, practice and racing. Scotty is making the switch tonight. So I will definitely be there. I told him I would do the points standings by hand until I have it done, so he agreed to switch.

Really? I guess I don't understand what's the difference between your SW and AMB's. what does it do differently?

My software has a zillion features to help Scotty run and announce the races better.

I show each racers individual clock, not just the 'master' clock. So he can see if somebody needs to get to the line at the end of a qualifier. I show the pace of every racer, not just the leader. I show each racer that is on a pace faster than TQ. I show the time behind the leader and the car ahead of you. I have vastly superior heat and main setup, so setting up the mains doesn't require any additional work. My printouts have more information, like the pace after each lap.

You have seen my practice software, it is awesome. Ask Barry Baker, or Matt Francis, or Paul LeMieux. Popup windows with each drivers name, pace, # laps, run time, lap times, fastest lap, average lap. Even skips bad laps so it doesn't affect your pace.

At the Oval Nats, the guys got addicted to the printouts.

The B4 did not win because it was a better car.
It won because the guys driving the Losi cars sucked.
