yea tony we raced !

ran two qualifiers and during the break it rained for ten minutes and dried up quickly.

I TQ stock! and was leading Until I developed a mid race glitch for two laps I got Passed by a local kid who is a good driver. then the glitched disapeared I caught him was trying to pass him on the inside his car stalled mid corner I was on his tail punted him, and like a true sportsman I waited but he hit me stuck my body under and took off! You believe that so much for sportsmanship! Other then that the car ran great! sorry you guys didnt race!

We haven't had too many rain-outs all summer, so we just hung out and rested today. We may try our luck at oval tomorrow at Quaker Steak. Toni has a pick-up truck all painted and ready to go. They run nascar style trucks ,we will see if the weather holds up. It may not be our favorite racing venue but it is still racing. See you next month in Orlando.

820 I just loosen the top deck screws, then lift and roll the motor out. Works fine for me.

Actually I took a dremal and just made a curve in the top deck big enough to twist and lift the motor out. even though you shouldnt have to there is no reason to unscrew the top deck.

here is a pic dont think you can notice but I ground it down with the natural lines of the top deck you cant even tell.

Actually, I used to run them, but I thought it made the car feel lazy

yea kinda sorta but the composite ones brake and you cant tieghten down to much and when the track is 145+ degrees running a mod motor the composite one dont hold up. such is the case with 19t.
especially on tight technical tracks were you accell and decell alot while the diff is working on overload.

Ah...I guess our conditions are a little different. I've only used them in 19T and Mod and only in the rear. I usually run a one-way or spool up front.

once I started using the steeloutdrives I never switched back. also you can get the alloy ones they wear out quicker but they are lighter!

Actually, I do use the aluminum ones too. If you use the Niftech swivels, they last a long time

dotman you can use schumacher blades. just have to locate someones bent axle and tap out the pin and use the blade they fit snug and handle more abuse, especially compard to the IRS pin cushins!
