John,
I cannot wait, should be an excellent event. There will be some real good local talent there. I hope the RcMadness crowd is still planning on attending. I will be there bright and early Sunday.

John,
I believe the doors will open around 8:00-8:30 Sun. morning. Get there early so that you could get a good pit spot! I look forward to meeting and racing with you.

But I thinks Jim had it worst of all. He runs the EVO, shaft drive car with the LW suspension. On the last round he ripped the entire drivers side suspension off the chassis when he hit a 2x4 corner that was not flush with the neigboring 2x4.
Those aluminum ball ends are a b"tch!

I won't be having any more of that problem any more

Instead of using the aluminum ball ends, you could always use the aluminum ball nuts, they still look cool, but will be stronger.

I havent had a single problem with the aluminum ball ends, but then again, the car seems to be as strong as anything else out there, I have yet to break anything.

Randy, I moved here to Texas last Oct. Military thing. The closest racing venue is in San Antonio, about 2 hours north of my location, Corpus Christi.

Randy, I think Neil would have a tough time making it over to socal since he's now located in Texas

Difuser, whatever you do, don't bring rain with you when you come to "sunny" California...It's been raining off and on for the past week I look forward to running with ya. Bring some 7-8 Turns and a 19Turn in case we all wuss out, since traction may be an issue because of said rain.

I hope you all have a very Happy New Year's celebration and be safe! Approximately t-minus 12 hours til brain cell oblideration
Rod, thanks for the tips. So tell me, when will the DJ stuff come out?

3) Actually, the diff pulley is completely stock; it is the outdrives that I modified. I filed a flat area on the diff outdrives and glued a shield on to keep carpet fibers out of my diff. The shields are not actually connected to the pulley, they just barely rub against it. The outdrives are actually modified EVOIII units. I just made another out of delrin just yesterday...here's a pic.
Arun, great looking diff. Has a X brand flare to it. What type of shield material did you use?

MY car was getting pretty dialed on the carpet. I am running the a stock setup with the following changes:
-1 front camber
-2 rear chamber
shocks all the way out
associated yellow and purple springs.
parma cyan and magenta
parma alfa body

Dawgmeat...nice pictures. We never took that one of all of the Tamyia cars! They outnumvered every other kind of car that night! The pictures do not do the track justice though...those boards are wicked nasty.

Raul..take off the skirt and race your car.

I never heard you moved, sorry to hear it though. My trip to SoCal is about an hour and a half every week now, so I know how much it sucks.
