Roger-As this weekend that is no. I am not sure if I will make it up there within the next few weeks. I know Matt was there yesterday practicing.

EddieO-Thanks for the offer. I will try and convince RT to get me up there. I will keep you informed.

Dawson-Sup...thanks. I will let you know what is going on soon. I sent your Skodas out yesterday. Have fun playing on the rug! You lucky duck!

Yeah, I heard it was like a speed session for dialing in cars. Gotta make it up here sometime. Late.

pro3racer-No you not need to go that soft. Try my snowbirds setup with White springs on front and black on back. If that is too stiff then try Black on front and purple on rear.

MDawson-Oh yea!

Roger-yea I do need to make it up there. Matt said the track is awesome!

promatchrcr-Thanks...cya at the birds.

well, my rear end is usually always looser, so i thought putting dark greens on the back would make it stick good, even if it did scrub some speed. If you look in the xxx-s section, my little setup is there. oh well here it is again:
Sway front only
white front, dark green back
40 front, 50 back
plaid front, red back(soften to purple status)
28mm tires
stratus body
tight track, new carpet(CRC stuff, same as trackside).

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you guys know of the new heatsinks that Trinity has come out with that bolt right on top of the current D5/P94/D6 endbells. Kinwald, Lemiuex and I all ran these heatsinks at the recent Novak Race and noticed that our brushes would not heat up or even burn up close to what they used to. These heatsinks will fit on any EPIC large brush teardown to. This heatsink will totally improve the life of your brushes and comm. TRI13004 D6 Optional Heatsink
