Not at the moment. For some reason Schu UK is out of them. I would imagine we would have them here in a week or two.

Thanks again adrian for your tips. I finally had the time to rebuild my shocks lastnight and your method works great. I had one shock that gave me a hell of a fight but after i realized taht i didnt put the piece with the foamies in it worked. Long night! :-(

How is the rear end of your car set up right now? Are you using softer oil/spring in the rear than the front?

I have found, that too soft a rear spring will make this happen, the car will roll over to far and will make the rear end like a pendulum.

I raced the mission again for the first time in a few months, i went back to near kit, and started going in new directions re roll center etc, asphalt on foam i always preferred short low links, i started going the other way, and i got rid of the mod corner push it had, i think the front end is pretty good now, just need a little work on the rear. Still looking forward to the release of the BMI chassis, as my kit one is getting worse for wear.

If it is spinning out on power, try adding some anti-squat or standing up the rear shocks to give you more forward traction. These will also give you more off power steering at the same time.

Live - check out Hutchinson, KS. The track is at High Performance Hobbies. Indoor carpet, and they run 1/10th rubber (Novice), 1/10th foam, and 1/12th foam.

Website is www.hphobbies.com

Not TOO far from Lawrence/Topeka.
