Wow! That was great! Barry, I especially thought that was hilarious, because it doesn't fit your normally cool and calm demeanor!

But yeah, I'm gonna have to go w/ Barry on this one. Xray is a great car.

Reilly it was me in Cleveland last year. I struggled with both cars and the motors. I hope to be better prepared this year. Although I'm not off to a good start since the RCA order has been held up so long.

Josh can you explain your shock bleeding process ?

Josh- could you please explain how you have your batteries wired? Did you put a tab on the servo side of the pack and just solder the jumper wire and thet the power wire. I just don't see a way to install the batts with the jumper hooked up all the time... Thanks.

Hi josh. Good job at the wc in brazil... To bad you had some bad luck there, it looked like you were the fast car on the track. Next time.

Many of the RRR owners in the nitro forum have been asking about your set up on the rrr. I was wondering if you could post it for us please.

Thanks

The Mazda 6 was ruled legal right before the Worlds began.

Thanks for the correction. It's safe to say that the worlds didn't go as many had planned.

Hey everyone.... Finally home!!! I can't wait to get back on the rug...lol....

Bob - Sounds good!!

trackdesigner71 - After 2 weeks in Brazil, coming to the electric Worlds is impossible to get back up and get up to speed quickly - especially with IFMAR's limited electric practice schedule - Heck, 2 rounds of PRACTICE count to set the heats so you can't really even test during those!!! Thanks for the words though!!

Explorer - They may help, it really depends on the track layout and tires you have to work with as we have found that sometimes it is more steering and sometimes it's less - things from the same track we ran on at the Pre-Worlds didn't work at the Worlds.....

Mugen - I run a V-One-RRR now for 200mm. I don't have a fav TC motor as things change so quickly it seems that something that was awesome 6 months ago is now only average....

Barry - Try one step softer on the rear spring or lean the rear shocks in 1 hole. You could also try a thin front sway bar (I don't remember if you had one or not...)....

Aaron - Nice suggestion, the question is which one...

Chris - Fill the shock, put the bladder and the plastic cap on pushing out the extra oil and screw the aluminum cap on.... pretty simple really....

Scrad - I just use a long wire and slide the battery over the top deck, under the drive belt....

JDXray - I used to run the car and it was pretty good. Set-ups, I don't have any anymore but everything was pretty basic - .020 front springs, 2 degrees of camber, 3 degrees castor, thick t-bar....

roscosmax - I'll post it on the CEFX site soon. I just need to get a set-up sheet from Kyosho....

Chris - No problems with the bodies as everything was legal at the Worlds....

Adam - Cool. We have more to do this week but hopefully by the Norrca Nats we will be ready!!!!
