Wow very small world. We are still using the wood jumps. Main reason is so we can switch between oval and offroad. We would like to have both separate one day and you never know as it could happen. I know the owner always has his eyes open. He could rent the building he has now since it is his.

Do you live reasonably close or did you have to travel pretty far to get here. We get a ton of guys for some of the big oval races coming from 10 plus hours away and some as far at CA.

Wyd I do alot of oval racing as well. The problem I have
is i got way too many oval machines and not enough offroad.
That's sad because offroad should be my main focus.
I have 3 oval vechicles and 2 offraod. If i get this car
and im about ready to bite the bullet and just get it i'll have 3 offroaders.

Thats awesome. At our US Open Wheel Nationals in December Jim Harden was up helping me do Tech. He lives about 20 minutes from Olathe and Castle Creations. I don't even own any oval stufff even though we normally get about 75 to 100 every week. Thats what I did from 85 to 98 and then went touring car racing til 2006 and been offroad racing since.

Well I lowered the oils to 35 front and 30 rear. Car feels really close now and I'm going to start practice out with this oil combination. Need to add weight to the front of the car and paint the body today. While painting I will glue up my tires for race day. Lastly need to gather up all the extra screws and parts into a small container and I'm ready for race day.

The new Tamiya weighted front bulkhead/suspension block (depending on what you want to call it) has really turned out to be the last piece of the puzzle for me - highly recommended.

We did have a guy run one for a few weeks and then sold it to get a B4.1 but he ended up running about the same so it wasn't the car.

Which side are you guys running your diff screw on? Do you have the diff in so it comes out of the spur gear side of the car or out the left side of the car? In the directions it isn't real clear.
