Hey Jzone,

Everyone was not the same.You did not show up and Monsoon too..... bad boys....It's ok no worry.I had problems with boards,bearings ceasing up,sway bar set ups and getting rear ended like nobody business.Did got to the A main in mod.Too bad for Tc3s...caused him a bunch of replacement parts.I went on finishing my heat...but not the main As for the Boys,Mytxx..he did fine.Just need a little more set up with that steering of yours... and rear end seems to be bounching on power at the straight ...could be the new power from the zapped Mod...hee!!hee!!.Too bad Jzone was not there to try the stock...Hint!!hint!!Same as Monsoon.....Maybe next melleinium will see you out. .Rcspeedo,great to see first time out.Speed is not your problem....learn the car You had it running good.Just got to stay of those boards.And remember on power has lots of steering.....use it to your advantage.At least you are not breaking major parts.Just turnbuckles. Got to get together and make sure your car is built right. alot of tips you may want to use.

7even Racer,
Congrats on your turn out.On our side we have the triple xs and tc3 breaking in mod.Guys were running on rubber tires with 8 and less turn motors.Amazing how 7even cars can handle the toughest competetion.Keep up the good work.Remember to have fun.

Comtif,

Looks like you have spend a few hours on the car .Keep up the fine job of tuning it.I'm sure one of us here will be up on the top 5 in the A main consistently soon.we'll be going to a big club race in 2 weeks.Got to tear the car down again to check those darn carpet fuss that drags the car down.I c you are running your car ful time 4x4.It's great for tight tracks.Braking is used anyways.But if more speed needed, the frt oneways would be a wise . investment.Until then have fun Cheers

Hey Jzone,

Good to see you back..hee!!hee!!...wonder where's Monsoon???? So we getting new bodies??.
7even racer mention of the s80 volvo..heem...thats a good lookin body too.We got to get the bodies before the race.Which ones??>..

7even racer,
Running on carpet with foams......heem.Most of us runs rubbers here.Try the set ups from the RCLAB main page and use them as only a guide.You may never know,it might gives u too much bite.Our cars are running on the edge of traction rolling.Just like foams when traction compound applied too much.If it's a smooth track go heavier oil damping.Heem free web hosting.....nothin right now.Anybody??........

This 6.0 ver 2 is very stiff.The new chassis has more lamination than the old chassis.Tried using sway bars,not recommended.It runs best without them.Otherwise everything else are straight forward.Gearing be something to work on later.

Hey Shockwave,

Yes,the 7even guys be out there for sure .. stock,sportsman stock,and mod...we got it all covered.
How abt Yooou.Coming out?.

Type S,

Longer suspension arms makes it more stable overall.Conversion to longer arms not a problem at all.Not many racer does the conversion.IF it's a 5.2ttt suspension used,they keep it that way.#1 is cheap to replace just ball cup ends versus arms or c hubs.But with the proper set ups,it preform as good as the longer arms.Just preferences.Longer arms are good with the high density material.It comes standard on the 5.2ttt.I have pics for you to compare if you need them.Let me know.

Hey Monsoon,

Tires...heem..... I tried Sorex 36 and 40,they work well.The Ho Bao K1 and G1 works well too.The blk package ones are the ones to get.The blue package ones for hyper 7,does label the same but they are different from the blk packaged ones...beware..I warned you.........
