NB: Serpent Project 4X was checked and due to the O.D. of the center pulley the internal is not exactly 2.000. Testing revealed it is closer to 2.005. For Serpent Cars ONLY, the drivers who wish to be as close as possible to the Minimum FDR can use the following spur/pinion combinations: SS TC => 99/32; Stock TC => 97/36; USGT => 101/46.

No, they argue constantly about which sauce concoction is better for the tires and why you are slow. Or, you didn't grind off every 3rd web correctly, lol.

Speaking of driver skills, I am surprised that pro skilled drivers are allowed to participate in Can Am racing at all : shouldn't it be amateur skilled drivers only ??? That would tighten the field even more....
There should be a Can Am pro class for the top guys only !!!!

Define pro-level and amateur. At what lap time do you make the cut-off? Quit trolling just for the sake of trolling. Moron.

He baited and got a reaction out of you. The "don't feed the trolls" thing, is real.

There is. Its called super stock. Dont want to race what you call a "pro skilled" then dont race that class.

To many people want instant gratification in RC. You want to get better spend the time at the track actually practicing instead of on here bitching about "pro skilled" drivers. Thats how they got to that level...hard work not hard typing.

Marcos, you seem to have a way with words that cuts a bit against the grain. Maybe you should slack off just a bit cause bless his heart he just can't take it.
