Me 2!!!

I was asked who is Ayrton Senna (R.I.P) buy a 16 year old kid at the tracks the other week!!!

Needless to say he got a major revving from every one there.
I think he's still hiding in the corner.

Back on topic:
I'm thinking about getting an X-Ray, is the newer T1FK, much better than the previous model?.

I have been told that you have to buy a heap of option to make it work to its potential, is this partly true?

Hey Greg are you still using the "Wheel"?

How did you get that scar on your arm?

What are you going to do for work when you get out of school?

Are you racing 1/12 at the Worlds? If so what car?

What was your first big win? What was your Biggest win to date?

What was the BEST drive you EVER put in whether you won or not?

Do you still roll up your skin tight denim shorts?

What bodies are you taking to the World's?

You are the only person to really go after and beat Hara lately. Does that give you more confidence going into the Worlds? Knowing you will have to go through him to win.

Will you name one driver from from each competing car company that is going to be your BIGGEST threat at teh WORLDS?

Just a couple of things to let people to get to know you better.

Your FRIEND
Steve Chamberlain

Greg,

On your KO Grand Prix setup the comments say you used a 2.3deg pin angle in ft. Does this mean you added toe to the front hinge pins? If so was is toe-in or out?

Thanks

nitro kid - I do not have any of my XXXS setups. Your best bet would be to get ahold of Todd Hodge at Team Losi and he would deffinitely get you something good.

Do you have any pictures of your T1FK you can post? I am specifically interested in the way you mounted the cooling fan on the chassis.
Qwiglee - I will try and post a picture of that in a day or so.

If you are looking for some interesting reading on Senna..check out "The life of Senna"by Tom Rubython...700pages and it a great read so far...I am about half way into it.

I also have a general tire question with regards to rubber tires.

Could you provide a brief description of when and why you would change inserts for a given tire...example med to a hard or a thick to a thin insert.

Thanks for your time.

Jamie
senna555 - Thanks for the tip. OK! As for the tire thing. I will keep it short and just want you to know that this is only my opinion. Thick inserts have less air gap and heat up quicker. So you would generally use them in cold low bite conditions with a soft insert. If the conditions are cool and the bite his high you might try a soft insert with them. Thin inserts have more air gap and heat up less and you generally use them in hot conditions to keep the tire from overheating.

Any reasons for the enduro brushes over sprints??
Xray Kid - Its ok! My name is not as mainstream as the Kinwalds, Hodges and Drakes of the RC World so it may take awhile and some good results on my behalf to get this thread jumping. Its all good. I run enduro because I feel that they have more punch and last a little longer than sprints.

locally the tire of choice is the sorex 40's cause its kinda hot here in the tropics.
S-T-R-I-K-E-R - That is a confusing question. All I can suggest is that maybe you are running too stiff of a suspension setup and too thick of oil.

Good job on trying to be a little more mainstream.

Adding to my other questions. Who, in your opinion, is the best R/C driver of all time. That you have been lucky enough to watch.
