Yeah, I use those. They are working great, just slightly longer (60.5mm) than the stock shocks.
I like the ball type mounting, easy to take out and put back in.

Yeah, I did. The car was great, very stable and smooth.
The only thing I still have to work on is the steering. Very wide turning radius, makes it a handfull to drive for technical and narrow track.

Last year Tamiya made the heat break down available pretty early...
If they do a lottery it's basically just that, you send in your entry and they draw the names of the drivers that will attend the race out of a basket or something.

Ko Racer those batteries worked great. I gave them a workout in 19 turn witha D5 hand wound motor. Had lots of punch and topend. Need a little better setup and more stick time at the track I was at. 1.189 at 20 but they ran just like my 1.179 stuff at 30 I have so numbers don't always matter. Car was ripping fast.

That gear chart is the best, I think you can also access it from RCRacing.com's site.

Is that really how it's going to happen? If you know what's up would you care to give us any more info on how the names are going to be draw, if at all? And if it's a lottery are you going to enter? In any event, it'll be fun.

How did the cuda boys do on Saturday? I hope you guys had fun. We had fun with single digit mods at TA

Well that's how a lottery works, so I guess it'll be somethin like that. I guess if they dont require me to send the payment in with the entry then I'll for sure send one in if it's a lottery setup.

Lol, yeah if it's a lottery, I'll try to package a lucky rabbits foot with my entry. Imagine the look on their faces when they open the envelope hehe. Maybe a quick pix or scratcher won't hurt either.

Soooo, how did the fishermen do at socal on saturday? Did yall have fun? I heard D-Battousi was there along with Steve.

Forget the rabbits foot, I'll just send in 500 entries for 19t, and 500 for mod

*pull your name and your check is cashed, if they don't pull it, they shread the check...
I figured that's what they would do, but we dont even know if it's a lottery or not yet...
