Andrew-yea I owe that dude....lol.

Matt Howard-Email me at [email protected] and i will give you the number.

jeff-I take all my shock oil with me. I ship motor spray, paint, and tire sauces to the race. You can check on UPS.com to see what the transit time will be like.

TL-What picture?? For sponsor...just compete in you regional events and race as many races as you can to get your name out there. Be friendly to all other racers and try to help out anyone that you can. Being sponsored is not all about getting free parts...its also about being a good racer that is willing and able to give others advice and helping them with their car setup.

Evic- 1.5

Dawson-Ahh...remember what I said in that email earlier...I own all of you....you are all my PB's now.....ha...ha...ha.....ha!!!

I read elsewhere that you run a GM SX12. I have been running a V12 for a year and just picked up a SX12. I was practicing with a buddy, we both have identical xrays with exception being he has a Keyence Speedo and he passed me on the straight like I was sitting still. We pulled our cars and switched batteries and motors. The exact same thing happed. I donít think that a Keyence is that superior for club racing, so I might not be setting this thing up correctly. Could you give me any advice to get the most from a SX12 for stock racing?

TL_XXS_racer- That is one of the 'one-off' chassis milled by hand, with a rotary tool (ie, Dremel)...looks like Dirt's ?

TL-Racer-That is all hand done by BK with a dremel. The man has a lot of time on his hands as you can see.

SX12-Are you running the power capacitor. That will help with punch. Also run the turbo at the lowest setting...I forget what it is. Also run 2Khz for frequency.

eviceratornator-Sup dude....that is actually bad....but today I feel like you deserve a 10. Good Job eviceratornator.

J. Filipow-sup you gonna be at Socal on Saturday?

I bet it takes him a wile to do that.

One question how do u get your car setup so good. Just how does it stick like glue on the track. My car is always loose into the turns and tight out of the turns. I want a easy fast setup for the XXX-S so i can get my driving better.
I dont mind if its not a fast setup

Thanks for all your help.
I really apriciate it.

TL-What type of track do you race on? I will post a setup once you describe your track conditions.

racer-oz- Trintiy Tire Tweak or Trinity BG2.
