stupid...me? of course...I've done so many stupid things in all my years of r/c racing, it's unbelieveable!

Just some of the big ones:

ROAR Nats 2001: I forgot to put the motor springs back into my motor after rebuild and my car wouldn't go anywhere while I was on my last and final qualifier (*doh*!)

Reedy Race 2002: Put in the wrong pinion gear and ended up being undergeared...again, on my last and final qualifier which I was depending on to make the A-main (*doh* x2)

I'm sure there are a lot more involving soldering iron, glue...etc...etc.

Itchy

Thanks for the offer, I'll give you a shout if I need anything. I wont be at TFTR this Sunday, going for a romantic weekend in Sydney The Cuda will have to wait until the next meeting to get it's debut. I can't go much worse than with the Atlas, not that I blame the car,I think it's my driving that's the problem!

Heheh I have the same problem....but the driving is getting better every meet. Stick with it long enough and you'll get there.

I'm looking for some setup tips since next Monday we start racing outdoors. I'm looking on tips on how to deal with rough tarmac, there are a few ridges that tend to send the front of the car flying up until the rear of the body hits the ground and then the front slams down again. Grip isn't too bad with kit setup, need to do some more running to see how it is when pushed so I'll be back for more, just looking for ideas on how to handle the bumps, for now.

Loosening the suspension of the car will help reduce the bumpiness. You might want to add more droop.
