No official record, the guy's in germany say the went 477 miles in 24hours with a TT-01... im a little skeptical on that claim. Since we had guy's racing for 24 hours using brushless motors and they did 385.2084 mile's. They were running an avegare of 9.0 second laps and the cars were pretty well spent by the time they were done.

I know this thread is about our 415 RC cars, but I just have to post it coz I'm an avid fan of things that go fast (whether 1/10 or 1/1 scale; 2 or 4 wheels).

Well... he did.

Hayden got crowned this afternoon.... amazingly Rossi threw it off the road after 5 laps (and he really didn't look happy after the start).

Well done to the lad... seems like justice was served in the end.

[email protected]#[email protected]!!!! This is a TRF415 Thread!!! I have a bunch of people coming over to watch the race on SPEED and here I am wanting to read about my 415 and I read this!!!

I kept away from motogp.com, BARF, and all motorcycle related websites all morning so that I don't find out who wins! I want Hayden to win the championship but, your post here just ruined the excitement of the most anticipated MotoGP final in years. THANK YOU VERY F#$#%#$ MUCH!!!

Next time start a NEW THREAD and maybe put *SPOILER* on it.

Dude, chill with the "masked" swearing. I was suprised myself this morning when I just happened to click on my MotoGP bookmark (which I habitually do it every morning including this thread as well) on my laptop & saw Nicky's picture & not Rossi's. I had to pinch myself just to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I trully apologize that I ruined your Sunday.

I too am going to watch the race on SPEED to see how all of it went down.

yeah, i was bummed out that the winner was posted here - i didn't expect it! oh well, i'll still watch it.

gives Rossi another reason for staying with MOTO GP

.....and back to our regularly scheduled programming.

my understanding was that the MRE kit was put together with asphalt racing in mind, thus the "regular" EVO IV suspension.

Easy enough to throw the shorter arms on though

TBH i don't really think the car needs short arms for carpet racing, i've kept the std arms on for rubber racing and it handles great. May try them though to see if there is any real difference.

Apologies, I know it stinks when you hear the news before you get a chance to watch (too often I miss the F1 races... and hate it when I hear the result before I get to watch it)... Opps.

Right off to watch the Atlanta NASCAR race... man I love the TVU Player (P2P internet TV)... means I get to watch the race on NBC at the same time as you lot in the US
