It broke on the first pack (of course). The track was somewhat dry but it was pretty good. I was still feeling it out. I really wish I could have run it when it was dark and the track was wet.

Im gonna get the BB shocks before i decide to put the new chassis on my current car. If I happen to drive Jimmy or Pres car with the new chassis and like it then i will consider upgrading.

Wow they must get killer pricing because that is less than cost from Great Planes as a dealer. I work at a shop but at the price Stellamodels has its cheaper than dealer cost so if your looking to buy that some unbelievable pricing.

Ordered two sets with BB`s. Going to wait with the chassis, but when you consider whats in the kit I think the price is fair. Chassis with posts. Carbon battery brace and body. Stellamodels says wing also, but Rcmart dont.

Shipping from Stella to the US is pretty steep though. No matter, I'll be sticking with the $13 chassis.

If you're not running fast with your current setup, the new chassis isn't going to make you any faster.

If you're practicing for the worlds, then we are already on different planets talent wise. You could probably beat me with a Grasshopper. I'll be around and would be very interested in looking at your car.

How did you fair this weekend?

NorCal hobbies was blue groove traction and the locals were running slicks! I had traction roll for days in SCT, buggy was good but I had no practice time I showed up for the second round of Qualifying.
