WIll do. I ran one pack through the car last night as I stopped int to track to pick somethng up. Clobbered a few boards cause I cannot drive in low grip (we just chnaged layouts and vacuumed the carpet to get all the tire dust out of it). So far so good.

I'm not sure about the brushes, i've only been racing in stock for 8 months so i really dont know. The guy who kindly does my motors prefers 4499's in 2 mag monsters, but for quad mag ones i don't know because i've never had one.

Corey Bernardo, RobFo----- LOL australian style thats sounds like it should be in my kamasutra book!!!
to be honest i was thinking more of a Kung Fu style
Thanks, this sunday will be my 2nd time racing stock ever

O, and my shell is just a plain red mazda..boring i know but i;m in need of a new shell anyway

what motors you using? I would of been using EAs this weekend but haven't had chance to put in an order for some...will be after crimbo till i order some probably

went to Tag's models today (its only down the road from my dads work, and i;m doing work exp. at my dads place) and they only had some orion "pro stock bullet sprint brushes" in or something like that, all the others were shitty cheapo things..so i had to get some of them.

when i'm down there on sunday im gonna go speak to the guy at newbold though, see if its he got any decent ones in..i really liked them trnity diangol serrated ones (god knows what compound they were..but they sure did wear down fast!)

Please help I need a setup for a T1 FK I just got today (diff front and rear). I run out doors asphalt on rubber (cs27) medium traction and little bumpy. The track is an open layout.

Thanks for all the help. I am jumping from the Corally bandwagon to the X-Ray bandwagon. So thanks in advance.

Hey Joe, whats happening?

Hey man, if you still need a set-up, call up Russel Hamilton, Larry Pierdolla, or Paul. Their cars are all hooked up down here. I would give you my set-up, but after over a month, I still haven't got to race my car yet, lol.

See ya,
Mike Patterson

P.M. me for their phone numbers.

I can't get the front end narrow enough with the short arms.
If you guys have any ideas on that I would appreciate it.

I got my Team Tamale parts today. Has anyone else had alot of up & down play in the c-hubs? Mine have quiet a bit and the fan mount doesn't line up with the hole. Also, do I need to use the FK rear shock tower to use the new camber mounts?

you should not have any play on the c-hubs.pull tem out of the car and mount the hub on the outer hing pin and see if there is play in that piece.

As far as the fan mount, they will not line up. you just put a screw through the bulkhead and sinch it down on the bulkhead, there is not much that will move the fan, so you don't need to crank down on it. Yes you will need to factory shock towers to use the rear roll center mounts.

let me know if you have any problems with the piece. I will be racing with Team tamale tomorrow.

with the Team Tamale C-Hubs, do you still need to put bushings in? Or do they come with them? I heard with the Xray ones they come with bushings but you also need to put another one, maybe i am wrong.
