You guys not heard of email?

You trying to get some other way of buying sway bars? instead of having to pay for several mounting bits when you only need one set and a few different bars. Seems silly the way they are sold at the moment

Looks like with the R3 you're going to need small electronics just to be able to fit the weights on
I wish they'd change the cut outs on the servo/motor side, the cell shaped ones are a pain when you're trying to mount an ESC securely. I don't think anyone really uses the cut outs for cells, so why not make them triangular or something so there is some more support, even just add an extra bit in the middle of the cell shaped cut outs going from the front of the chassis to the back, so it's like four squares and you can cut out the extra bits if you're weird enough to want two cells there.

Thats why if you buy the R1 sway bar kits they come with only the sway bars 2 of them per kit.. example 1.0 and 1.2 /1.4 & 1.6 ect ect... all you would have to do is get a bit creative with a dremel and a cutting bit to make them fit the 5mm spacers

Hehe, sometimes a gentle nudge is needed
I find the problem with the Cuda is it's acceleration, I can be following someone closely but cleanly, then out of a corner I simply accelerate and find I've gently pushed the rear end of the slower accelerating car infront

Don't do it often, honest

Default Carpet Setup

Let's see if this works...I couldn't do it in a .pdf file, not too familiar with A.A. It's close to EA's but a little different.

Had that problem in the stock class, especially when running behind some belt driven cars Nailed the throttle then had to either swerve or get right out of it as I closed on the back of their cars too quick.
Was great when I got used to it though

JUST KIDDING DENNIS...lol...maybe by the end of the season, my skills will be back.

LOL heath oh yeah a little tap from time to time is a good thing . this season will be great and the driving will be tough as always so when you pull the car off the track and you see speedway pal or a KO decal on your body, baby you know KO has been by and gave you that gentle tap
