Hey Mario, got your setup! I'll post it on the site soon, of course if that's okay with you? As far as gearing the Trinity 17.5, I'm not too sure. I've never ran that motor. Hopefully someone on here will chime in.

What can be used as a good base/starting setup for rubber-asphalt racing with spool upfront and ball-diff at the rear ???

hey all: I read on hear that barry baker has split fro team magic and some one suggested he join top racing. While i think that would be great for the top team i think barry is not going to just jump into the next situation that comes along unless he knows he has some team driver or other job security with that company? Just my thoughts thanks

Tomorrow i have my own Scythe again finaly.

I have a question. i the last link that is posted by Luic i see a Scythe with a difrend top plate and difrend top bulkheads. Is this self made or not?

I was thinking to divide the top bulkheads so i have more flex.

Yes Mikky32, is handmade top deck and cut bulkheads in the Scythe 08 car, in the left of photo, the right car is ARP without mods.

More flex and easy for work in it. In rain i add a composite down bulkheads and the center part of motor mount in composite, too.

Greetings, Luis C.
