Hey Troy,

You guys coming out this weekend? I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to pit inside again. I got spoiled this weekend. The only problem is that you cant hear whats going on outside so its easy to mis manage your charger.

BTW: My car was on point this weekend. I just didnt have any motor in stock and did my fare share of bobling 19T. Once i borrowed some pink power my MI2 was en fuego. However my transmitter died in 19T so i dint get to finish my main in 19T. I'm going to have to straighten that out.

Yes, I'll be there. The weather report looks perfect for this weekend, upper 70's and sun shine!

I did some more work with the one-way at SoCal again Saturday. Learned a few more things that worked really well. The car was uncontrollably loose when we first tried a one way so we made drastic changes to make the car drivable. Now we're just fine tuning it to get more steering into the car. Just ran out of races Saturday though. I still have a few things I want to try. It's looking very promising. Not sure how well this setup will work anywhere other than SoCal, but if anyone is interested in it, drop me an Email and I'll send you the Excel file I use for a setup sheet. [email protected]

Going to birthday parties for the 20 kids in my daughters kindergarden class puts a damper on quite a few weekends....

All you guys I've sent this oneway setup to, please let me know how it works on your tracks. I'm not sure when I'm going to get a chance to test it outdoors. I'll be getting ready for Reedy when I race outdoors for a while and I'll have to run a spool for that.

What springs would be most recommended currently for TRF dampers on the Mi2/asphalt racing,and what # of open holes in the pistons? I bought a set (of trf's) with 2 holes open- should I just drill another hole of equal size to make 3 holes? thanx for the imfo...

I'm not sure if drilling another hole would be such a good idea as the holes will not be equally space which in theory would make the shock want to load to one side. If you think it makes that much of a difference i would suggest compensating by running a slightly softer oil. 32 1/2 versus 35.
