That's pretty fast! The velodrome looked fun but I didn't run there, looked a bit too much like it could turn out expensive!

Funnily enough, I did not hit anything the entire day. It was a flawless run even with 4 other cars on the track.

I went on to take the win after winning all 5 heats. The car was very fast and easy to drive.

Arrow Drilling Pistons...

I think that I am going to drill out the stock cuda shock pistons. What size drill bit is best. I have no metric sizes only standard.
Thanks for your help!

I can tell you the sizes that Japanese Guys use 1.2 & 1.4 mm

I'll try to find out the Standard size

Hi Guys,

I'm back!!!! And we did it!!!! Congratulations to David Berger for taking 2nd place at the Reedy Race of Champions 19T spec class. Awesome driving, absolutely awesome. In the final triple A-main, David was one of the fastest guy on the track, and came back from 4th position to nearly taking the win at the end (he was behind the 1st place by only a few feet). Congratulations once again to David, thank you for all the time and effort you put in these past couple of months. We came a long way in the short amount of time that we have.

Interesting thing, not a single TC3 or Losi in the A-main!

elnitro,

You'll have to ask David's permission for the "rubber diff" setup. I'm sure he'll be posting on here soon.

JDM,

The owner of FLAP was one of the visitors from Japan for us, and he helped us with setup and other racing preparation over the weekend. I believe we will soon be carrying FLAP parts as well by the way, we were looking at the same picture online last night at the office, and I believe he mentioned that brace was for the older cuda. I'll see him later on today and I'll check with him.

I have more news for you guys, which I'll post later, right now, I need to recover from the race.

Steve Wang

Hey Steve, good to see you got a car up the front, what is it with 2nd in the A finals ( I lost out to a Losi, the guy was just running perfect lines every lap, although I may have taken the fastest lap of the day for a 19T, not sure)
Very interested in seeing the setup used, the track looks similar to Carlisle, just a little smaller and we don't really have any small straights on the infield.
