With all this rain it looks like the norcal racers are safe from me putting the smack down on the 15th unless it all of a sudden clears up... I feel that this is my year

Never said that for carpet.....but I will go on record now and state that for the Reedy race I WILL NOT BE THE LOWEST FINISHING SCHUIE DRIVER in the mod class. This year on asphalt is where I become one with my car

Time to make PW proud of me again

we have a lot less grip then you lot.
the most common tyre through out the season is cs22 before rp.
now rp 24 outdoors are also used,i dunno anyone who uses the sorex range at nationals.

Made a few minor changes to the car...

--Disclaimer-- lol...I'm a perfectionist, so the things I changed on the car are not necessary by any means.

1) Really like the Schuie body mounts and their adjustability, but wanted to cushion the body a little more. Used small body mount foams. I simply used some CA to attach them onto the shock tower and made pressure on the angled portion until they stuck.

2) Used heim style/XRAY joints on shock shafts instead of the ball cups. Spaced them out with a Schuie 2mm spacers on all four corners. The ball cups on the car are super good, but if you're like me you rebuild your shocks often and don't want to chew up the ball cups this provides an easy way to take them on and off.

3) If you're running a ROAR event and need to weigh 1525gms (I was nearly three oz under weight), weights: used brand-X lead weights at 3 corners and a modified lead weight near the servo for balance. Underneath the bumper mount and between the small screw posts (ala Teemu) I have a strip of 12 grams. (hard to see in pic lol)

Yeah, I got to play with it a little this past weekend. The track was a little dirty and I only got about 4 packs in it, but the car felt good right from the start.

I'll get to race with it this coming weekend.

Well, I have an extremely powerful compressor that is cranked up pretty high. Between that, q-tips with some lighter fluid or motor spray I can get the car to clean up nicely.

As for bearings in the hubs if I don't have time to dissassemble the car before running, I'll take the tires off and simply spray downwards *away* from the chassis with motor spray thoroughly and then relube with either Niftech micro bearing oil or WD40 (I'm oldschool). I'll repeat this process on all four hubs.

As for the bearings in the bulkheads, etc. you're kinda stuck there because you simply cannot flush them out with motor spray and relube. If the drivetrain is really that bad, it's time to disassemble.

Anyone using the Schumacher H1032 Alloy Camber Gauge - 1-10th?

Whats the maximum degree, and what's the resolution, that is, can it for instance be adjusted in 0,5 deg steps?

How well balanced is the car from left to right with those weights?

I have all my lead on the side of the radio gear in various positions to try to help balance out the batteries a bit.

Skiddins if I know Jon, he has probably balanced that car 30 times to get it perfect.
