Hi Todd,

Do you have any experience with Niftech aluminum outdrives and dogbones?

Todd- great to meet you this weekend at the nats. Your car was sweet in 19t and mod. I met you while we looked at Hara's car. There were some fast losi's there this week. Bowser and Robinson were flying in stock and 19t!

Great moment when Kinwald broke out the BQ Helmet...lol

Are you going to post your nats setup on the losi site?

Thanks

Jeff

What seems to be your general carpet beginning setup. I'm moving next week and should be able to get some practice at the local track sometime after the 1st of August. Just looking for a starting point. So far I have only the kit stuff (shock oil, springs, stock hubs, yellow belt, etc), plus front and rear anti roll bars.

If you want to see the pics of my car they are on page 385 of the XXX-S forum. Sorry for waiting so long to get them out.

Did you enjoy your first Nats Jeff? I heard you beat Cody, nice job


For a carpet setup I'd start with Todds cleveland setup on the losi site. Maybe just go a little softer cause its a pretty high bite setup. I've run it with black/purple springs and it was strapped.

Todd: Yes, the NORRCA is a rubber tire event. I would be great to have some Losi support out for the event. Its getting lonely with just two of us handling the Fernando Tamiya groupies
