1st day out dropped .5 seconds off my best laps and shaved 5 to 7 seconds off my best complete race, easily.
Can't wait to start tuning this setup.
I told you man its better. Did you break into the 23s yet? I'm hoping to hit some 22s wednesday.

Almost, 24.1 a few times. Car is easy to drive and no weights, hinge pin mods, bell cranks or any of that extra chopping stuff going on.
But then again, not running mod either. Just worn out 17.5 Novak Ballistic, Excelorin esc and a 1.0 base chassis with only a couple of the 2.0 geometry upgrades.
This format is so much fun and works so well.

You definitely need the bellcrank. It's probably the most important for stock. It will give you a ton more steering through those hairpins.

Hey Dave, it's Rick!

Sorry again for breaking an a-arm on your 2.0, I'm just too used to MM it seems. My offer still stands to buy you new arms.

Did you switch to MM yet?

Haven't been to the track in a while, hoping to come this week though.

Hey guys! Just bought this kit. Been in on road touring but never tried off road. Cant wait!
When you say "bellcrank for stock" who makes that? Would like to build it with that if it helps that much in MM.
Thanks!

You're goood brother.

Racing has been good the last couple weeks. Made some changes to the car and it's a rocket ship now. Got The Northwest race this weekend. Should be a lot of fun. I'm going to try to make it if work allows. Hope to see you there.

Mod or stock?


Edit:
Never mind i see your running stock.

Did you feel like you lost any initial power?

Yes. No washers in the back, and 2mm on both ends under the front. PM me your email and I'll shoot you my setup sheet if you want to try it out.

I dont understand how the bellcrank steering rack gives you more steering than the stock slider? Seems like BS to me ???

Ill ask again. What are the differences I should notice between a +4mm spindle and a +2mm spindle. I'm interested in the aluminum spindle set so I'm curious if its worth it based on what the differences are thanks
