I ran a set up last weekend where I used the #4 hole at the front and rear w/ Red springs up front and Blue in the rear. I had very good results. THat was on a very tight asphalt track. The car was very nimble. I'm going back to leaning the shocks over this weekend, just for comparisons sake.

rayhuang: man I love that transponder mount you've got on the car. Pretty sweet. Get rid of those foam tires though!

It looks like I'm the only one going to Ripon tomorrow. Do you guys care for a tag along? Call me tomorrow. I'm not going anywhere. I have two motors to tune for racing whenever I wake up so I'll be home.

Bigdog: Like I said, I really like it, but I think I will have to stick with my current mounting position(behind the motor) There, it helps to balance the weight against the battery and most importantly, I can get the transponder in and out with the body still on.

His is very sweet though.

why not send a brace vertically up the side of the servo and mount the transponder vertically so it braces on the serv too???

JONSKI--- your not supposed to drink the bong water!!! LOL, why you getting out, hopefully it's for a good reason and not something bad like serious life issues.

SPAZ--- try boca bearings, or maybe even HPI......you may also want to do a search on Tower for the sizes you need.

Racer X- Thanks for the great racing last night. We were the only two guys to go 21 laps Next week I'm going to run mod but I need to work on getting the car a bit more agressive. It was fast and smooth last night but when I wanted to push the issue the car was too lazy....but I'll take a lazy TQ and win on 2nd anyday

Shrekair: well first off you want to have the transponder mounted as low as posible on the chassis. Its not the heaviest thing on the chassis, but sticking it up in the air on top of the servo still isn't the best idea.

Secondly, many transponders, especially the older versions(but also the digital ones and even the personal ones too) don't like to be mounted vertically. They like to be mounted nice and flat. Upside down is okay, as long as its flat. I've seen pictures of some people's Missions with vertical transponder mounts, but the transponders work much better when their flat.

Lastly, I'm not sure that would look too good!
