Talking

my car's almost built hubs and electronics are all I have left, it'll be ready to hit the track tomorrow for sure SoCal's too far for me on a weekday, with traffic I'd have to leave at 3 just to get there by 6 I'm pulling double duty this weekend most definately though BCR and LaMirada

We are team drivers in the US so we got our kits that way, the others pre-ordered there kits from Local Hobbie Shops..

The rest of the kits will probably be in at the end of may..

Thats just for the US market..

I saw Charlie and Big Rigg's cars this weekend and they looked great on the track. Handling wise is similar to RDX, but slightly better and working on it is much easier with many more tuning options.

Yea, I'd have to say that the car feels great. My first couple of practice runs I was babying it around (going into the corners letting off a ton and rolling it in all slow like) and it felt a bit twitchy and oversteery... but when it came time to race and I was pushing it really hard the car came alive. The harder you drive it the smoother and easier it gets to drive

Bitter and I should have finished 1 and 2, but I was feeling my oats and gave him a fender letting 3rd place sqeak by for the win All in all I'm very happy with the new ride and I'm thinking about calling in sick tomorrow so I can go race again

I havent had the chance to run my car yet but it went together flawlessly. The car is really light. It weighed in at 1368g with a lightweight body. Can't wait to run it for the first time.

If you like body-tucks dont ever run the light weight bodies, I had a major body tuck in the last A-main at last years RROC..
My car is at 54.3 with grips of lead...(3) 8.grams (3) 5.grams right in front of the motor down the middle..

The car kicks ass and looks sick too.

Previous day we had a race and I joint it with my new phi; qual-1 and won!! thanks Corally.

However I'am having some problems with those lower arm holders. If someone hit from behind they instantly take off even I tighten them. Any ideas..
