Probably to try to reduce glitching etc.
Hmm, never seen that before, I wonder if it causes much resistance...

RFI suppressant... decreases glitching..
I've tried it... works good...saw a slight increase in punch..hmmm maybe it was the Fuku cells...I gave Dan some to tryout.

Never had a problem with glitching since I went to the new radio... But if it adds punch, it may be worth trying

The only Mod I've done recently is replace the 2 piece swaybar/bulkhead spacer with a solid 1 piece graphite..
this also help reduce the tweaking I experience when I first got the car. Just installed the Hard shortspan arms..now it's all ready for some carpet action...can't wait.

My red brokomo SD hasn't even been run yet, I've been sick this week, so no racing on Tuesday, but I'm planning on heading up next Tues. Looks like there's gonna be another red brokomo coming my way... GT4

hope you don't bend any of the red alloy parts, would be a pain in the ass to get parts reanodized again. It's good to look different from the other yokes, pink would have been interesting though

Default race report

well, my race was less than desirable. 1st heat broke before the start, sheared the screws off in the aluminum body mounts from a car setting on the straight. 2nd heat the car was very good but 5 seconds off of leader at the end only because he had more motor/batteries. 3rd heat was weird, the tension spring fro teh steering in my M8 broke in the race so I had to self ceter it so I pulled it off and had to modify the spring before the main so I could race. I didn't even put all the screws back in the radio b/c I have to replace the spring. Are they hard to get from airtronics in a weeks time? I never use all of the steering in the wheel of the radio. I just heard this snapping noise in the radio and I was like what in the world happend. In the main it was back and forth for the lead between me and the person who qualified 3rd. He beat me by about 5 feet. If I just had some better batteries, the car couldn't be touched. Once again, the Xenon/Cuda handled like a dream with tons of corner speed and no cuda parts broken. Only aftermarket aluminum screws in aluminum body mounts and a fabricated bumper. I am still very happy with my car, I just need more speed. As far as EA's car, you better let him tell you all his night.
