Neil,

I was one of the hundreds (if not thousands) that stopped by your booth on Saturday. Thanks for the advice on starting with the pillow-ball suspension instead of c-hub. It helped a lot in my race. I'll see you at the track.

Gerald.

I'm glad to help Gerald. You have to start somewhere, why not with the stock setup. I'll see ya at Socal raceway.

I have to admit that RCX was a huge surprise to everyone. Many of the major manufacturers thought that the show was going to be lame, but with all the music, rc stuff, tracks, all scale racing, helo's, fighting robots, import cars, and gorgeous models, I was pleasantly amazed. Next year, it should be twice as large (at least)!

Ya RCX was nice, I had the chance to talk to Ralph Burch and I think to you Neil. Did you check out those insane Inferno's pulling huge backflips?

Yea, during set up on thurs, they were practicing and doing dual back flips with two cars. One of the model speed boats cut a tiny hole in the water pond causing a slow leak. I felt sorry for the guy who had to mop up the water that spilled through. The jet helo was loud and amazing to look at, and the blimp tended to stay where the models were hanging out. I wonder if there was a camera mounted on that thing?

Man that's cool. Do they have anything like that ever here on the east coast? And closer than flordia to PA folks like me...that's a hell of a drive for a RC show.

You will be very pleased with the T1R. Since it's release, it definitely proven itself both in Europe and the US. All parts are available to the public except for the R&D products that somehow make it to the general public, ie new pulleys. All parts are interchangeable with the Evo2 should T1R parts become scarce. The new chassis does flex more than the woven graphite plate, but the added torsional flex does do much better on dusty loose tracks. The price advantage of the T1R is a major determining factor to the hobbyist with economy in mind. The street price for the T1R is more than $100 USD less than the Evo2. PM me if you have more questions.

If you think of anything, it's between the T1R and the 2003 worlds kit. The worlds kit comes with pivot ball and composit C hubs so you can do anything you want (for the same price as the 2002 Evo II kit) .... also included is the turn buckle wrench that wasn't included in the previous kit. If price is no problem than get the worlds kit...you get more goodies and the extra stiffness of the carbon fiber is crutial to mod carpet racing. I think the T1R chassis would be too flexible for the mod carpet, but than I haven't driven one, just my EVO II on carpet. Outdoor racing you could get away with the T1R and that's where most people are saying it's shining and almost if not just as fast as the EVO II.

Ya the world's kit sound 's interesting with pb and c-hub suspension, i like having both options although c-hub sounds a little more easier to find a good set-up.ON carpet the graphite chassis sounds like the way to go ubt just seaching for ideas thanks for the help!!!!
