hey guys...

As for the ackerman stuff.. I am not 100% sure but i do believe specialized rc will be making these very soon. I think there will be two increments but we need to test a little more to make sure these are where we want to be at.

Next as for joshs piece , we took it even farther then what he was able to go. See we made one version for my car that made it like that piece since i did not have one at the race and then i gave that to chris who already had joshs piece on . Then we made a 2nd one that basically went beyond that...also you can not use joshs piece with the bigger pully gears

What i thought it did. first took a little of the twitch away and felt like it gave more center out steering. especially on low speed corners.

I think this is positive thing...

Anyways .. We have great passion and want to see the PHI succeed but we do not need the hate when people are trying to help.. Even if what josh says is full of sh!! at least he is trying to help . And if he helps just one person get better then i am all for it .. I know i am not perfect but i do have some experience in my 20+ years....

Anyways guys lets keep this going . With the nats around the corner maybe we can get even better...

Mike

Well said, Mike.

As far as Jerry Shrefftrace is concerned, He is a set-up guy who always has his car doing the right thing. I've raced with him alot and I've known him for quite a while, his cars always look fast and he's a wheel. Plain and simple.

Have you guys tried running with a more rearward weight distribution? To some extent moving the rear arms forward, as some of you have tried, achieves this - but it also shortens the wheelbase. I'm suggesting adding lead to the rear end of the chassis.

I've been wondering about shifting weights. with a lipo pack, i keep thinking about shifting the weights back a bit.... some of the previous vegas winners had packs shifted back a bit, thought maybe it would help in 13.5 as well?
