yeah thanks, i have been driving the FK-05 (xray) wich was also really stable, so i was hoping this would be more or less the same out of the box.

not really, the track wasn't sprayed and it was kinda dusty all weekend long. It didn't have ANY tight sections either and was quit a bit bigger than the tamiya track.

Hey Randy,
I got my spool also today...Haven;t put in yet....Will give it try at HotRods maybe Friday. You know got to get as much practice as possible. I hope I can get it dialed before the race...I also have to get ready for the KO race...Any suggestions for the Tamyai track?
I know that 4Fun has about the same traction so should I just keep gettitng better there?
Thanks,
Stephen
Also
Spool or no spool for KO?
I thought you said no spool but wasn't sure.
Thanks

Get with Masami when he gets there. My car sucked last year until I got his setup, I only had to tweek it very slightly to suit my driving style.

Hopefully I'll get to meet up with Masami early on and get his setup, as much as I suck at the Tamiya track I'll need it.

i think somone mentioned something about modifying (cutting down) the triangular insert that guides the shock shaft earlier.. how did you do this?

any trick to getting it to stay in place after it has been cut down?

Just leave like 2mm and it goes right into place.
I haven't needed it since I got all the travel and adjusmnet in stock mode.

You should not need to do that with the BD. The shocks seem to be plenty long enough already.

Ceramic Bearings,

RC4Less has them for $10 pair. I did the entire drivetrain for about $70, metal sheilded, abec grade 7 bearings. I'll let you guys know how they perform.
