Yo Jamie!

I know I'm not going to the Regionals. I doubt Larry is going either. The car I ran on asphalt is essentially in pieces in a box. It's has been reborn (almost all parts replaced) as a 2nd carpet car.
We've been practicing for Vegas at Horsham with the little bit of track time we have left there.

And $$$... The body on Marcos' car is a Parma Alfa.

i used the MI2 2.5mm diff balls they are a hair bigger than the Losi
the MI2 are 2.5mm and the Losi are 2.38mm, they fit a little tighter but now im able to run the diff tighter and has a smoother action.

Most of us are using these bodies - Mazda 6 or the MazdaSpeed6, DNA-2 and the Stratus3.0. Try the kit setup for foam (yes, i did say foam) and work from there. i changed my setup to the kit recommended for foam on carpet, and with only a little changes, finished in the top 3 for stock racing.
