Looking forward to the HPI winter series at Don valley tomorrow, i raced on friday night at Don Valley and Ben Cosgrove was running a Pro4 Oh well there goes another pre Mirage Xray driver.

On a posative note my name was above Ben Cosgrove, (worlds A finalist) Andy Moore and Graham Alsops name on the qualifying list at the end of the night Obviously it was a hollow victory because Ben and Andy were having loads of trouble with the Pro4 trying setups, Oh and i do race there nearly every week. But i'm not going to be able to say i out qualified them very often am i! I did get the fastest lap aswell

Xray's are great

I do. I'm using CS-27GL running 19T right now. For some reason, no one else at the track likes to run thesetires, but I like it a lot. Got TQ and A-main win today with it.

PM me, I don't care much for posting my setup out in the public.

What will i have to do running a one-way on carpet since thats all i got for now(Fk). Do i have to change shock position? Camber? etc.

And should i run Jaco Orange/Purple and Purple or DBL Pink/Orange and DBL Pink? I find that the Jaco orange/purple and purple combo last longer and give great tractions but not as much as the jaco dblpink/org and dbl pink. What would be better for a one-way being run?

Thanks

Jon

Go here and get the shock collars for the foam shock tower.

You can also use the TC3 shock retainers. They also lower the ride height.
