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....

You should try Bumps and Jumps Dirt oval. It is really getting nice and they are geting more guys every week.

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.....
