I'm going to be racing Palomar on the 14th, then The Dirt, and Perris will be my more often visited tracks.

I pit for a friend who runs JP's in his MBX5 has rb 086 pipe with 1 extension on header
Last big meeting we were getting 12 to 13 min out of a tank engine temp was around 120deg C only running 16% fuel

This thing should be unreal on the track, cant wait to get it out there. At least I know for sure I got the best engine, lets hope the buggy is just as good. With this many adjustments, I dont see how it could possibly be slow.

You won't be disappointed, it's a great buggy.

Also, btw.

I'll be racing for XRAY/HUDY USA this next year concentrating on the XB8 in 1/8th scale. Let me know if you guys have any questions or concerns. Feel free to e-mail me @ [email protected] Thanks.
