You must be a wizard to do that with a dremmel especially on the sides on the tunnel

Like I said earlier, Mikes doesn't have enough grip yet to be running stiff setups like that.

If the track doesn't have alot of grip I'd recommend just softening up your springs... I've run as soft as losi black in the front and losi purple in the rear....

You might not need to go that soft...but just keep it in mind!

I liked the black springs all the way around. I didn't a chance to try purple in the rear. One thing I've learned about this car on carpet. It wants to be pushed real hard. It can handle it no doubt.

I tried white the first time I was there. Still think it was a little to stiff. With them just changing the layout not to long ago I'd say stick with the black.

And the track will change it 4 weeks again... right in the middle of the series we are having...

I will try the black springs the next time out..
