Looks good Wyd, looks like the team driver cars at the Worlds. I see that you solved the 28mm foam tire problem too.

I think this setup might be what I have been looking for all along.

Wyd,

I found a pic of the JR filter mounted on my car (actually this was when I first got your car).

Thanks. It is a tad different than the one I used from Kilruf but still a small size so that will be great. I ordered some ffrom RCO. They come 2 in a pack.

To me the only real draw back is that R3 Steering rack. Once Alex makes those low profile hubs and caster blocks then the car will be really good. I guess in Japan they don' run foams too often and have no need to fit 28mm tires onto a car. All the Tamiya cars are the same way.

It has been a while since I posted the pink monster. Here it is with some new bling I don't think there is any pink parts left to buy unless I start machining a-arms and diffs then anodizing them pink

I threw in my current body even though I have a good thrashing on it. Gotta love the brushless action in practice.

Is it mainly touring cars and 1/12th scale in Japan? What are the popular cars on Japan for touring? I know their are alot of cars out. I suspect Tamiya is a big one. Anybody run those RC Lap cars with any success? Look very cool.

Pumpkinfish that is a bad ass looking Cuda. Look forward to seeing it at DC Ultra sometime. What width foams do you use when you run your car at DC Ultra? With the setup I see you would need spacers run even 26mm foams.

I might be there this weekend wyd. I am trying to get out of a dinner engagement.

I think my tires are 26mm. I just throw them on and have a good time I know I can't keep up with the sponsored guys at DC Ultra so I go to have a good time. Now when I am racing dirt oval in the summer, that is another story....

Dave, do they have pink knuckles too? Dang I need to get my employer to ship me to Japan for a week so I can do some shopping! I can't believe there is something pink I don't have. Have you seen pink ball cups and captured ends? What about pink carbon fiber? I might as well go all out right?

Wyd, the problem with Bumps and Jumps is they race oval saturday afternoon. DC Ultra runs at 5:00 on saturday evening. I could never do both! So my CW GBX sprinter and Terminator EDM are getting a break this winter unless I do an alternating schedule. Hmmm.....
