I dunno, you held my car last night, did it feel light or what? LOL. My lid is pretty heavy since I had covered the backing with 1/2 a can of Pactra and when I weight the car on scale, I didn't have the lid on. I can't wait to try on one of your lightweight bodies. *hint*hint*

Maj I'm using a pair of alloy posts to mount my battery strap on, it's fire as long as you mount the spur to the rear of the car. Looks very nice too
Herm, you got a picture of that post? or where do I get one? LOL.. always wanted to try something different. The bulky brace is definately out for me. hehe..

RBF... I see on your set-up sheets that you use the NSX body alot... does it handle any better compared to the new Alpha's?

It's definately the body.... it's better than the boring Stratus.

Hope to own a real NSX one day.

The post I use is made for the RC Lab and uses a body clip to secure the battery strap, you have to drill the holes in the strap out to 4mm to allow the post to go through, I have a pic of my Lab with old unanodized posts on, not very clear but you should get the idea. My cuda has newer blue anodized posts on
Dave has used Yokomo posts on his cars I think, they allow you to use screws to attach the battery strap like the plastic kit peices are meant to do.

I really need a digi cam of my own...

lol, funnily I've never had a stratus shell for such a popular shell I've had most popular racing shells apart from that one.
Don't think I'd get away with an NSX in the SMTCA though, would be fine at club level....

Coincidentally, RBF and I was talking about that last night. I had one before and the car drives nice, but you'll go through tires every 10,000 to 12,000 miles max. And all four, not just the front. Them tires are expensive too. After 2 years, I gave it to my eldest daugther and she couldn't handle the tire cost so she traded it in for a cheapy slk. hehe.. My neighbor still has one with twin modified turbo and one of them newest version skylines park on the driveway.

Thanks Herm, I'll look into it. Can't seemed to find anybody carrying the RC Lab stuff here in Socal. I might have to mill on to work.

Default Battery strap

Dan...

I was just thinking...
Here's an idea for you... use the 6 cell graphite strap from the Ray. built in screws...no screws or clips to loose...
It should fit... it fits on my SD.
I'll put it on when I get home...

Holy [email protected] you are absolutely right. I couldn't believe I overlooked that. I'll give it a go today and see how it turns out.

Default Web Special weight in

Here's the weight in. I can't believe this car went on a diet and lost some weight after yesterday's excercise. I musta work her out too much.
