Default Driving like a girl

I will prefer driving like a GIRL than CRASHING all over the place.
At least my car doesn't spoil (It's a X-ray T1FK mind you) and maybe win the race when u are out of the race with a Sad look on your face when the Girly driver win the race.

Now you know how I felt running the car with your chassis. The car just felt right.

I've been running an Evo2 FOC since January, and recently bought a T1FK. What differences did you notice by switching to the BMI chasis?

Jeff - ROTFLOL!

Funny you should mention that. My wife wants to see what all the fuss was about. Wants to stop by there after the races tonight.

Still searching for a setup that "feels" like my Evo2 FOC. I can either get the front end like I want or the rear, but not both. Have some ideas to try this weekend, so we'll see.

Oh, and Barry is the MAN!

Rob

Well ran my T1 FK today for the first time on the practice track. It kicks %$! as for indestuctible I'm not sure. Someone jumped on my frequency and I ran head on it to the wall. Not at full speed but fast enough to crack the carbon fiber.

Default Hodapp's ride

Did you guys see Greg H.'s ride on the Xray website? Do you notice how they painstakingly tried not to show the chassis? Any spyshots of that prototype?

Andrew, really? That's good to know. People at the Reedy race said something about the factory boys using a thicker (3.5mm??) main chassis. Any truth to this? Thanks.

Default Ouch

Ok 2nd time on the track. Same corner this time at full speed head on into the wall. Cassis now broken. Good news is (if you can call it good news) it wasn't somebody stepping on my frequency. Just so happens that there is a dead spot in that peticular corner due to a metal fence bieng so close.

Anyone have any suggestions on how I can fix the problem with glitches due to a fence bieng too close to a corner on the track?

Thanks in advance.

Dead spot? What type of receiver are you using?

Default Stock Chassis

forty6 - The chassis on my car is the standard kit chassis. It was just a coincidence that the pictures I sent them didn't have a good view of the chassis. The thicker chassis you are refering to is more for carpet. Less flex on the extremely high bite carpet surfaces.
