Hebiki! You are always welcome at my pad bro! It would be cool to see you guys up here. What's up with the record breaker charger?

Linger, you hurt my feelings... just because someone is neat does not mean you are fast, you prove that everyday.

Randy, I was wondering when you are coming back up? I'm using the old suspension, you don't really have to do anything except use 46mm dogbones with the yok diff. With the new suspension, you have to run pro4 steering knuckles with the old tamiya suspension axles. What's the difference between 2 degree on board and two degree out board? Everyone I've talked to likes on board better. Have you tried it?

I really hope that track has a good surface, my TCS car will be brand new for that one, so hopefully it doesnt get too torn up.

I'm guessing you're running the old 3mm chassis too then? Is anyone running an MS on carpet up there?

2 degrees of ?

sorry wasn't clear...I mean the difference between rear outboard toe and onboard toe?

No one up here is running the MS on carpet.

When is the TCS regional up here?

Well running onboard toe will also shorten your wheelbase, so you'd have to space accordingly. On a new setup I'm trying, I'm going to run 1XB blocks on the rear, with 1 degree hub carriers. 3mm spacing behind the arms, 1.4mm in front. Honestly Im still learning about the car, hoping to get it even more dialed for SoCal.

EJ, you're not thinking about running the TCS are you?

Ling, you gave me the sharpie in Japan. Lost it.

Rod, how are the RC planes coming along?

Randy, what else do you do besides type all day?

Madjack, Semper Fi!

EJ can't run TCS since he's a factory guy

Neil, the planes are pretty dialed. I haven't crashed one yet. Maybe I'm not doing stupid stuff close enough to the ground. I have had a few 'bad landings' but nothing damaged. Right now I'm flying a brushless Extra300 with lipo batteries. Will do rolls vertically until it becomes a dot.

I like the camel kind

EJ, pm me your cell number. The number stored in my phone is your girlfriend's Also, whenever your guys' manginas stop hurting, let's all get together and play online. We can create a deticated, password-protected game so that only we can play. That way, the only people owning you guys will be Dave and I. But look on the brightside, atleast you guys will own Fred! haha

Back to the 415 topic at hand...I've only had one weekend's worth of practice at TA since mid December because of holidays and weather. I ran last weekend and the car felt really good. This weekend, I hope to get some lap times.
