They are only the same if you have rewound the arm yourself with magic pixie wire and have rare earth magnets and an extra 5 degrees of timing.

Myths? Maybe.... Maybe not!?!?!?!?

Lipo is safe for all ages to use, no special care required....

Rubber tires on carpet will not work and ruin the carpet for the foam tire zealots.

Change a shock spring from 14 to 14.5 pounds will make a huge difference in laptimes.

Stock motor class is for the people who are just starting out, no FACTORY driver would get caught dead in a stock motor class.

If I can get the same setup on my car as Barry Baker then I'll be just as fast as him.....

When a non-DSM radio is turned on it the pits it has no effect on the guys who are racing...

Every glitch is caused by the above line, it's never anything else......

All turn marshalls are IDIOTS when ever my car needs them......

I am the fastest car in the pits, but something happens when the car hits the track.

Charging a battery less than 10 amps is for the lower main racers.....
