Don't worry, couldn't get a pic of you by surprise, just the back of your head..lol...Also, better keep Dennis away from your radio. Another thing, I'm trying to get that black Xenon sold for you by a local racer. He loves our Cudas, he is always in my pits drooling over it.

Often a good tarmac setup thats easy to drive is pretty good indoors, then you can start going one step softer all round and see how things go. This is how I went with my Alex Racing springs but may have gone too soft now, just trying to define a few limits to work within for an event on the 30th.

Anyway, is it red's on the front and whites on the rear?
I guess I should actually try running on a wood floor, I figured it would just be like ice...

Yea Jason does them....Most of the time anyway... He stays so busy it takes a while sometimes.

I put all the spring measurements in one chart for anyone wanting to print it out to put in their setup folders for the track. Anyone wanting it just email me. Its in excell format and it wont let me post it here.

Very nice shell EA, bright enough for people to see you lapping them
Sprayed myself a new Alfa 2.0, just a very quick one colour job using an old can I had lying around doing nothing, my old Alfa is literaly falling apart Will have something more worthy for my cuda soon

Try taking the dang spacers out of the shocks and they will work just fine I can get all the way down to a 4mm ride height with the Rayspeed Springs

Just matched the one he did for me, so it was easy to spot.

He's not going to sell the black one...He likes it too much. If any of them go I think he said the blue would go. But he will probably keep them both...He is going to cancel his order for his r3 I think.

When will the R3 be out Dave? I may want one to try out!! or just try the steering rack on my car since that is about the only difference between it and an r2 with pal chasis.

OK I see

anyways the R3 will come out in Late December

and if you were to know someone who could modify the lower deck and make a new forward upper deck you could use the TC-3 style steering system cough cough Barry cough

Default Eric...

Eric... man first of all I was only bugging you. Second EVERYONE knows you always got the speed. You were the fastest bar none I never denied that. All I said was is that you weren't beating me in the corners... What I SHOULD have said was you weren't beating me entering or in the middle of the corners. Where you were fast was the exits of EVERY corner. Whether it be motor, battery, car, driver or whatever. Just don't get bent out of shape. I apologized already, but again I'm sorry if I said it wrong or you took it the wrong way, but dogging me at the track or making comments on here doesn't help anything.

sorry...
