I don't know what type of track or surface you're running on...but if you're running on medium to high grip asphalt you might want to try picking up a one way and trying that...but the black belt is probably the biggest thing you want to have ....

As far as tuning goes... you probably want to pick up a decent assortment of springs and the front and rear roll bar sets.

That must be why the G-10 has been winning soo many races lately....

Steeeeeve - I dont think anything is on the rocks, but i think someone should get ahold of that box so we can just keep re-using the dates every year

Man you just proved how clueless you really are. In 99 when the almighty G-10 was around you never had people running 6 and 7 turn motors on 53oz cars. Currently Novak, LRP, Keyence, Ko and others have been doing just that with great sucess for each respective company.

While no one has criticized Tekin or attacked them, you seem to be a Rouge Tekin Die-hard and feel compelled to bash every other company.

The bottom line is that while Novak, LRP, KO, Keyence were busy re-designing and improving their products Tekin was busy with nothing...NADA...ZILCH.....ZIPPO!

If they are that good why did they close their doors?

Bottom line is try and make a point in a positive manner because otherwise you will continue to make yourself look like an idiot and give Tekin a bad name.

Maybe you've been punctured too many times by an Atlatl?

He might want to check out some of the online setup sheets too. I know I was able to get my car working well when I used Hodgimoto's setups as a baseline. He loves playing around with pistons too, so you might want to pick up some of those too.

Mr. Weiss, can you verify this information....

The ATLATL is used to propel a dart, a slim flexible spear, at greater speeds and distances with increased accuracy and target penetration than could be obtained casting a spear just by hand. In ancient times the atlatl gave man great advantages in hunting, fishing and warfare that helped him thrive in a world full of dangerous wild creatures.

Tipped with stone or bone points atlatl darts could easily hit a fleeing mammoth and penetrate the thick hide and heavy body, killing the several ton creature with an implement that weighed less than a pound. More advantage was gained by the fact that a man could carry a dozen or more projectiles increasing the odds of returning to camp with meat to feed his tribe.

The origin of the atlatl is unknown, but evidence of its ancient use has been found on every continent except Antarctica. There are still indigenous people who use the atlatl for hunting and fishing and its last known use as a weapon of war was during World War Two when a platoon of atlatl wielding Australian aborigines was formed to protect the island continent from invasion by the Japanese. Prehistoric atlatls or their remnants and fragments have been found in Europe, Australia, The Arctic, The Americas, Asia and Africa. Ethnographers in diverse areas of the modern world have noted historic examples of atlatls or spear throwers, with some still used today.

tmeeks - I used to run Tekin stuff back in the day. I only switched when they went out of business. I still use a BC112A as a primary charger. That said you need to relax a bit. You are doing Tekin a lot more harm than good with your posts. This isn't the "Speedo Battle" thread its the "Ask Evic some BS questions" thread.

That said....


Evicerator - If Butter falls down and cracks his knee in the woods does he make a sound...or do you believe in Phenomenology where if you do not personally experience the woods not only does Butter not make a sound but there is no woods and there is no Butter....

Adrian...whoa...and I thought the "There is no spoon" line messed with my head, lol

That leads me into another E question...What happened to Neo at the end of Matrix Revolutions and why did he let Smith win?

Butter-- You are Correct Sir!!

Adrian --I believe Butter would make the same squeeling noise no matter where the fall occured...except save for outer space where there is no atmosphere = no medium for sound to travel through.

Squealing huh...I kind of pictured Butter making that "SSHHHHHHH, AAAHHHHHH" sound Peter Griffith made in the Family Guy parody of Charley and the Chocolate Factory...you know...the one where he drank all the beer to get the winning ticket than fell while running home. Then he went "SSHHHHHHH, AAAHHHHHH" over an over for like 30 seconds until they cut to commercial....

Oh and Alex: if you still need a hug I'll see you in Florida in a few weeks... I'll find someone to hug you.


Neo "let Smith win" so that he could assimilate himself into the entire group of Smiths and take them all out from within.

Also so that moviegoes could feel sad and that the last two parts of the trilogy meant something and were worth going to see.
