Your car looked really good at Snowbirds. It ran very well, well enough to win the main if not for a few mishaps.

Car was dialed at the birds EA. You should have definitely won the race. Sooner or later, you'll have a major tc/12 scale win under your belt.

Yes, let's all post about the best track in the world!

I can let you all know the carpet is medium-heavy bite. Usually run Magenta / Cyan foams on the car (sedan stock).

Yes that is a Futaba 9650. Works awesome. For 12th scale a digital servo is a must as they center better than analog ones!!

The shock has a medium ball stuff on the pod and ant/shock mount and also has .275 on the shock mount. From my experience in oval raising the front shock mount up gives the car more steering entering the corner.

The front end is just a standard associated front end with no spacers behind the front wheels. When measured the front is about 6 and 5/16ths wide and the rear is 6 5/8's wide.....roughly. My calipers dont go that big so I had to use a ruler!! LOL
