Chucky, the short arms make the car nimble which I like.. I've seen this car carve corners like a pear knife on a avacado-really, no doubt Alex racing has their head in the right direction and will always like their design. I would grab one but I cannot afford it right now.

Yep, I know, I'm still waiting for my stuff from Xenon and Speedway PAL to arrive. That pic was taken the night before a race and I didn't have time to drill out a hole for the Yok transponder mount up front beside the servo Will post again soon after I equipe my ride with PAL stuff

It really is a nice fish FBJ, but mine is a tad quiet.

Had a bad finish, but i did let the guy i bumped go ahead on the last lap...finished third...the MVP sucked. Should've gotten a monster...anyways...

Ron, sounds like you are the lifesaver today

Where were you yesterday??

I've actually found a slight bit of tweak in the car by brushing a corner dot... Because everything mounts off 4 bulkheads, it can tweak a bit. I'm running the titanium screws, never ran the big 2.5mm screws, do they help?

Looks good, you should think about one of the aluminum servo mount/transponder mounts, they are very strong, and holds the transponder pretty low as well...
