My 2 cents worth if it's even worth that much)

The 5.2 vs. 6.0 issue... The materials used on the 6.0 is stiff but this also makes them brittle. The 5.2 front camber is harder to adjust but like anything else, you will get the hang of it.
The only times I ever had to pull the car off the track is when a board is sticking out and it clips the tire. This will pull the turnbucles out of the ball cup but no other damage. The same situation on the 6.0 and I have broken "C" arms and knuckles. (I really must stop cutting those corners too tight) I think boiling the parts might make them a little more flexible.

As far as performance, in stock trim, the 5.2 has more steering but not loose. The 6.0 is smoother and the more tunning options is also a plus. Hope this helps...

Chrisman- Love the pics! I think you got my bad side. LOL. Great close door to door racing! Lots of fun!

Monsoon- Good driving buddy! You can take Rudy, just don't get too worried when you are holding the lead.

Jzone- Don't worry, we'll get them next time. Just had some bad luck. Car looked good, work on those motors before the next race, then...UNLEASH HELL!!! LOL.

I've never driven the 5.2. but i have the 6.0 and it's the best car i've ever owned...pretty fast cornering.... it's a tab push...but good for my slow reflex just need to work on my driving now...

Default Where in B.C. are you?

I'm originally from the Northwest. I know Seattle and Spokane. How far are you away for either of those? I think that it would be a lot of fun to come up and race with you. I will be moving back to Portland, Oregon at the end of the year. I'm going back to to school to get my Master's degree starting in January. I would also like to see more pictures of where you race. That will give me an idea when you are giving your tuning tips what kind of surface and corners those are good for.

Hello Comtif,

I c you be moving closer to the Canadian border..
I live by Port Coquitlam and most of the guys lives about 30 to 45 minutes apart.Lets say from Portland to here is about an hour and a half to 2 pending traffic.Maybe we 'll see you around.We might make a trip to Raincity for the winter race.They are around Lynwood area I might be wrong.It's close by.If you ever want to come up once you settle down,e-mail us & we'll give you the time and dates where racing will be.Heem ... I knew I forgot the picture of the track......will do that next time.Until than C U later.

Chrisman.

Jzone- I still have some stock brushes... Interested in being my pitt bitch? he he he. I'll spare some if your strapped, just have some traction compound by the next race.

Chrisman- MORE PICS PLEEEESE!!! Just not of BUBBA, it really slows down my computer. he he he.

Cmotif- Bring it on man! we'll be happy to have ya. We'll share some good 'ol fashion bench racin' and get ya high on Paragon. The good stuff in the black can not that cheep crap in the white can.
