Default sunday racing

well todays race wasnt that bad the old dotman was there to give me a run. during the qualifing rounds was some pretty good heats. first heat car was butt crack slow ( had the matrix in it) only did 15 laps dot did 16 . so in the second round strapped up the monster stock and put in a spool. Now I never tryed a spool and liked the instant power on the stright but it hurt in cornering.I ended up second that heat with a 16 5.10 dot could not even come close to catching me . So back to the pits tweaked on the motor some. changed the gearing a little. check ride hight, camber, toe , tweak and put the front diff back in. now ready for the main. Put the car down on the track and took my customary lap and the car was hooked up very fast didn't break lose on any corner ( dot man your going down) . I qualified fourth right behind dotman.

now we are lined up waithing for the tone. It goes off and 10 cars race to the first turn. I,ll be danged someone didn't hit me and ripped off the left rear hubcarrier. man I cant win for losing. I think Iam going to get one of those BRP rear bumpers. You know the real big one> may look buttugly but cheaper than buying arms . next race friday night maybe I will have better luck!

well all my warpspeed Brothers ( and sisters) thats it for now. talk to ya soon

Very nice report Howard. Where do you race? Would you mind sharing your set-up, or is it the same set-up that you posted a couple of pages back?

I hate it when people hit me and break my car. That's just bad driving. The rear bumper should work well.

Default upperplate

Its $35 right?
how much additional if mailed all the way to Manila, Philippines.

I dremeled my chassis and added IRS side stiffening bars, it has improved handling but I need that extra stiffness that the upperplate would offer.

Can I send a bank draft in US dollars?

I know I aksed this before but now I really need them.

Thanks
Lem

Yeah i totally agree about support. If you have any questions ask Victor at warpspeed (Mr Warpspeed on here, or email him) or any one of us drivers. One of us will be sure enough able to answer any questions about the car.

Default I am sold!

As soon as I can stash a few bucks away (with out mamma finding out) I am buying one.

Howard forgot to mention that in the first qual he was leading the pack for atleast 3-4 minutes. You would have took the main if it wasnt for that crash. That car is awsome to watch on the track...smooth...fast....never broke loose.....what more can I say.....I want one!

Howard...I think you need a new one, sell me yours!

Cya Friday
