How's the track at the Reedy race ? Has anyone been there to practice and found a good set-up with a spool ?

Hey guys got my RC Maniax spool today.
Did a quick weight check with my old speedtech one (not the new lightened version).
Old speedtech = 18.6g
RcManiax = 7.4g

saved a fair amount in drivetrain mass then. Hopefully wear will be minimal too, given the corrally blades, and that I run stock (so minimal wear anyway...been about 6months and my delrin rear outdrives are starting to show wear)

Looking forward to trying it ontrack.

Gonna have even more stuff by the weekend too....

Quick piccy.

Default RCshop at St Monica, CA?

Hey guys,
I'm heading for St Monica, CA for vocation next week. Is there something (RCshop/RCtrack) I should go?

SoCal is kind too far for me since I won't rent a car this time. Anything beside LA Metro should be fine..

The RCMANIAX spool is really good. I have had no problems at all. So far maybe 20packs and only slight wear on the balde. The other stuff they make looks quite cool also. The tamiya spool is blue aluminium and has the outdrives made out of the same material as the diffs.

AllSpeed Hobbies has a couple of new Pro Module Suspensions left, if anyone is interested.

Just got mine yesterday, and I'll be putting it on for this weekend's race.

Nothing on the westside as far as I know. You should rent a car if you are going to be in LA for a week. You can't really hail a taxi off the street here (need to call and arrange ahead of time).

Did some Google search and cant find PCH Hobbies somehow. But there really no shop listed near Santa Monica beach. Guess I probably need to drop this time.

If I rent a car and go for RCshopping, I'm sure I will be grounded by allmighty soon...

Tryhard, what advantages do you see with putting the grub screws into the plastic stabiliser holder thingies at the back there?

The stabiliser bar will not be effective if it is sloppy within the holders, the setscrews push down slighlty on the bar and take away any slack in the holder. The bar should still be free to rotate so as to not cause binding though.

Thanks Besercoe. I thought it was strange, coming from a TA04 where it had grub screws keeping the stabiliser bar relatively tight to the 415 where they were very loose.
