Ok, So this morning Jimmy and I ran Pinky and it was really dialed just like my WEB Special. Now the only problem is Jimmy can't use Pinky to compete because he's contracted with another Factory so we'll be sharing Pinky for the time being.

I'm thinking to offer my WEB Special to the market since it's only had like 2 runs on it and is still considered almost brand new. Knowing that there aren't anymore made, I'm sure someone will be happy to take over the ownership of it.

Comes with everything that the Web Special has but also included a full set of Squat Dry Racing bearings which I've paid over $ 60 just to get it here from R10. I figured I'd post here just so you guys can have first shot at it.

Just bringing this post back up to the top for you Dan

lol, I guess I started that up without meaning to but I'll be sure to let you guys know what I think of the Evo. At least the Surikarn came with extra gears that I'll be needing

I'm sure it's in the triple digits, Steve would be the person to ask though.

I mounted on the front side because pinions reach easier. The rear side would propably have a little less flex movement though since it's closer to the mount.
