i have driven my setup on 3 different tracks and the car feels the same on all. one thing i have noticed it switching motors, from a 17.5 to 13.5 is major on the handling of the car. mainly because of having to run a tall gear ratio with a 17.5, so the motor sits all the way back. that makes the car want to rotate in the rear almost to much. im thinking about taking 14g out or the rear to see how it acts. but with a 13.5 the car drives like a dream, very predictable and planted!

what o-rings are you guys running. ive been running ae's for a long time but this past weekend my shop was out of them so i tryed losi rings. and from what i understand is the losi oring is slightly larger then an ae ring. with that said after rebuilding my shocks they felt better then they ever had befor. and seemed consistant threw the day with no sepage.

I hope I can prove something to Tamiya and get them to look at me.! ( hint hint)

13.5 I am geared 30/72 barely warm coming off the track.
From my experience car is very durable.

I sent them my resume for the open call they had. They said the deadline was 31 Oct. I sent mine in a month ago and still haven't heard back. I really hope they will let me know either way because this hurry up and wait stuff is killing me. I check my email every day with hopes of seeing something from them, but nothing yet. Oh well, on another note my 201 has been great. Last weekend I won both qualifiers, TQed and won the main by a lap over the whole field. My time in 17.5 would have put me 3rd in Mod. Everyone kept commenting on how good my car looked. It was awesome.
