Just finished shot:

One can wonder until my painter can do my proper shell.

Install:


Still a bit of room to play with, I may rewire it to get receiver flat, rotating speedo.

Need to take some proper shots before it gets too used.

Both were trying out the car, I believe. Of course this may be to see what the competition is doing.

I also ended up with saddles with pink springs in front and orange in rear. This was a medium bite clay indoor track. Buggy is very light so running saddles or square pack makes sense. Extra voltage is great for stock racing, my buggy still had great punch at 7min.

I've been on super slippy indoor gym floor today and the car was good once I'd got the right tyres on, first set weren't good.
I ended up running saddles and the orange rear spring, not the kit green.
Tons of drive, and also the car was awesome on the carpet strips we have.

I may try those front springs next then. I bought the full set. Car was certainly better with orange rears and saddles on the slippy stuff.

I think Jorn needs to run for yokomo again. Be interesting to see how he'd do with there whole line up of cars.

Default FYI

Currently running TLR22,front and rear springs are the same height. Not a spring expert but looks like an option.
