All orders placed were shipped the day of, or the day after I received payment.
Thanks to all that ordered
Yeti, thanks again for the block. It is very nice. Smooth bolt on part that really is slick back there. Nice work.

Doesn't who give me springs? And even if they did, my car is still VERY good with the stock springs.

I haven't tried any other springs because I havent felt the need to yet...too many people will change things after a few battery packs without ever working with what comes with the car. I've got 50 packs through my car and I know EXACTLY how my car drives and reacts at my track at different times of the day and night during racing with different conditions.

I'll change springs when my car isn't competitive or I can't make it go any faster with the current set up.

Until then, I'll keep putting in TQ runs and compete for the A main win on my loose to med grip track in Exp 2wd mod class at my local track.

That is the downfall, you can't but.....
It's better then not running because parts are unavailable.

I just got home from testing at the track.
The location works fine, no major crashes to strength test them but I did get railed from errant short buses a few times with no issues.

Several pages back someone asked about the performance of the JConcepts Finnisher body. We have tested the body indoors and outdoors and found that indoors the car has a much more planted feel. The steering is a little more positive and consistent. Outdoors the car drove great, but we found the flight of the vehicle to be influenced by the wind during breezy conditions. The stock body was not affected nearly as much by the wind over large jumps. Unless it's very windy we will run the Finnisher outdoors and will continue using it indoors.

PW posted in the JConcepts thread that he test fitted their B4 hexes and new hex rear wheels on the 210. I talked with him about it and learned that he fitted all the parts and the offset was perfect, but it hasn't been run on a car yet. I'll be testing this setup after the first of the year.

So the new front mount does not utilize the droop screws? Any word on clamping hexes?
