Hey Guys I hear it might rain this weeend

I was looking at RC speedo's car yesterday. It looks like the improvments to the car are helping your team out.. Tristan was pitting next to me yesterday and I noticed his droop was way off side to side.. I explained what Droop does and how important it is to the car.. anyway we figured a way to use the Ascociated Droop gauge on the 7 car.. I dont know what you guys are using to measure droop but if you guys dig through your pitboxes ( as Tristan did) I am sure you will find one in their.. if not their only 2 bucks.. it might be a wise investment.. that way you guys can all compare droop settings with the same measurement ( same tool as your other team members)

Hi Korgae,

Hey Osh,

I guess we all be running gas and mod.......hopefully weather be on ourside.The track may be cool...it may not be a hot day.Bring the cold tires out....or..shall I say...foamies.....they work well.


This weekend looks like it can turn out to be a busy one.Most of the guys will show up....the races down South the border won't be on till next weekend.Hopefully I get to run my pan gas..it's a totally different feeeling than touring gas.See u all at the track.

Chris.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the comment on the car, it was awesome, but still needs to do some work as it still waits a bit in the corner.

Korgae - Thanks for the advice bud, I kept trying to estimate the droop before and never bothered using the associated one, got the front a bit right though . unfortunately, when I checked my pitbox the droop gauge was gone, , it must've fallen off of my pit. oh well, I'll buy a new one.

Chris - so it was'nt the chassis that had the tweak after all, it was my droop that was way off. Oh well, live and learn eh.

Cya guys this weekend.

OSHRacing- That's enough out of you. Wait till your old car comes back to haunt you and whoop your ass! LOL.

Some new handle to consider: Tanker is good, Malases is another, and Exxon is always a catchy...

Korg- Whoa man! We just have people comming out of the woodwork. Not that we know that more than 7even owners are looking at our site we should stop slamming other people, ehh... LOL.

By the way, congrats again on your sponsorship with Assoc. This on looks like a keeper. How's the nitro doin? Were you able to get more turn in? Motor looked fast.

Thanks for informing us about rcspeedo. We have ways of dealing with guys who fall out of line. We'll take it from here and carry out the appropriate actions.(Now where did I leave my motor spray and reamer?)

Chrisman- Car will be ready for Su8n. which looks like it's gonna turn out to be nice. Gotta get your help with engine and suspension tunning, O.K.? Maybe it will be nice enough Sat. to do some testing.

rcspeedo- We need to talk to you... and close the door...

Hey all- We're just talking and kidding around but if anyone needs help or wants to share some info. please jump in anytime.( If we don't post right away, it's just that we're igoring you... Just kidding)

i've been peeping this car for some time now. i noticed that in all of the pics i have everyone is using a direct servo saver. is the bellcrank system rigid? oh, and does the kit use metric or standard screws? thanks. later.

Hey Seaball,

So far the bell crank is indestructible unless it is shaved to clear some servos.But other wise it's bullet proof.
MAke sure there's bearings for them for smooth operation.
Screws on these cars are metric.But standard screws can be used.....

hey chrisman,
i guess what i meant is... is the bellcrank a spring loaded servosaver type, or just a rigid pivoting fixture? i direct linked my kxone and blew out a 9402 in like 20 runs. yeah, so i better rethink this one. ok? let me know. that car is so nice to look at. later.

seaball- The sterring system is direct and does not have an internal spring to act like a servo saver. This is why everyone is using servo savers. Sorry to hear about your servo. I use the same one for many years now on several cars and has not let me down yet.(knock on wood)

The car is beautifull but tough. The car performs and is easy to work on. If you have a chance to try one then do. You'll see why we love this car. If not then a leap of faith has to be decided by you.

Besides, were all here to help, so you won't have to go at it alone. You won't regret it.

hey guys,
what about droop screws? i don't see any. do you use internal limiters? that's the only thing keeping me away.

Hey Seaball,

Bring on the questions....
As for Macky's kit,it's basically 6.0 ver 1 equipped.It's a lighter than 6.0 ver 2.It's fully loaded.

As for your question,it's basically better the car handling and performance,eventhough the 5.2 had proven it's ability to perform.

Chris.

If your motor is not too hot after a run you can go up on the gearing. In stock, temperature is usually the limiting factor rather than runtime.
