Kilruf where you been? Haven't seen you post on here in a while.


Steve, the red ae springs are rated softer than the copper, And I wouldn't think that Chris would be running stiffer springs in the rear. At least when I have tryed it the effects were undesireable. I'm probably wrong though. Rob

Thats why I don't run mod foam anymore, too many ego's

I am almost done buildong my SD and I am very impressed so far. I dont think my TC3 is going to see a whole lot of track time from now on. Does anybody have a good starting set up for So Cal?

Very cool meeting you, you're one hell of an announcer, my favorite of the weekend. Good battling with you in the first day... until I shattered my A-Arm that is

I didn't hear you call out your frequency

Alex S. is the man in stock. That was by far one of the best races that I've seen in a while. He's my new hero for 2004
Alex's stock win was truely amazing, he was over a half lap down after he went into the off the track club He's gonna have sponsors all over him in a couple years... how old is he anyway?

Does anyone have the servo saver piece from the parts for the servo rotating that they dont need? PM me if ya do- Thanks

All of us SoCal'ers are waiting on that CGM with open arms. The TC3 is a really good cat at SoCal, so I believe the CGM is going to make the SD just as good, I just wish they could get it out sooner

BlackFlag, been racing 1/12th scale. Concentrating on that since I'm racing it at the Snowbirds. Besides, racing Stock TC at the track now-a-days is pretty dangerous! hehe. I'll wait til carpet season is over and bring the SD back out to play on the asphalt. Or I'll just race Mod on carpet with the fast guys. Much cleaner that way. Anyways, SD won't be back out til the Birds are over. Maybe by that time the CGM will be out! Hmmm but I do have a setup to try on carpet... hmmm You coming down this weekend with the other VA boys?
