I'm glad you asked. I didn't want to be the one to ask.

Well, then, if a train is going 80 mph, & starts at Penn Station, then when will it get to Boston? .

Um... haven't followed baseball for a long time... *flips a quarter* Redsox!

As far as the train... Penn Station in New York? According to my research it's 215 miles from one city to the other... that's assuming the route is as short as possible... it'd take 2.67 hours to travel 215 miles at 80 MPH... but considering you've got to get up to speed and slow down...and the fact that it's probably not a straight line from station to the other... I'd say a 3 hour one way commute is not out of the question...

But then again this could be a trick question... I know nothing about train routes back east

Ray Darroch, Dave Johnson, Dan Hartman-and many more I am sure-just flying at the Halloween Classic with them. One week earlier at club race-they didnt look so good. What a difference a week makes.


The JRXs is SO cool to look at. Got to see one up close. I am still wondering how to tune the car for foam tires when tires wear from 2.35" to 2.17"!!

The new car is even more impressive to look at in person... pictures don't do it justice!

I don't think it has much to do with it...but alot of people have been asking me for my setup from the nats lately :P

But realistically, I'm sure all those guys worked well together in an effort to make each other faster! All the Losi guys have a really good work ethic and are usually more than happy to share whatever they learn with one another!

haha I used ray's setup as a baseline for my setup...they are kinda close in some respects... the differences are the amounts of anti-drive, the rear camberlink, the springs, and the rear sway bar

Everything else is almost dead on what he ran at the Snowbirds
