Raced the car for the first time Sat night, acualy its the first time I ran the car at all.

Broke the front upright/knuckle after the first tap of the boards entering the turn too hot, totaly my fault. oops it happend on the 3rd lap during my first and only practice run.

missed first qualifier, second qualifier the car was loose in the rear and pushed in the sweeper.

Third qualifier, I changed rear shock position to soften the rear up made a substantial amount of improvement, so I was happy, finished 5th

Main I did make a minor camber change from 2 deg neg to 3, car was alot better and I was starting to get more comfortable, lap times where improveing and was getting more confident, so I pushed a little harder, then I hit the board and my wheelcame flying off, broke the center out of the middle

day over

car is fun to drive need to do some more testing and driving, tried Red Bull's set up as a base line, but my car is BOX STOCK

Oh yea the person who won the race was driving a Baracuda

Steve: I need more parts
Heh yeah I wonder who whacked me off the track? Check the lap times. I was turning faster laps than the winner.

Vic if you're reading, good win, just messin' with ya.

I like it when a car is very sensitive to small changes, makes it easier to tell what direction you are going before you go too far...

You got me there, but can't help when plastic wheel looses the whole center and all I have left is the wheel nut and a small piece of plastic stuck to the hub.

Oh yea you should always be #4

Well thanks for letting me know what wheel not to get. I run Yokomo precision wheels as of now, they seem to be pretty true spinning, and havent broken one yet.

I use the Yoke bladder shock caps, I like them a lot. No leaks and I didn't have any problems getting even shocks. I just couldn't get on with the bleedscrews, they were too small and annoying to get tight enough to stop any leaks. The yoke ones are blue alloy too so look nicer

Big J .... I just started to use them and they make tuning the shocks a breeze I have just bought several sets for my Cudas but my Blue R2 and Web R2 are the only ones that have them on right now
