Changed the part and went on to plant it firmly in the 19t A-main, was running 2nd until he got taken out!

Custom, were you running a one-way? I forgot to tell you I was using one on my car at Trackside.

Yeah I know but it gives a better shot of the new chassis moving the batteries closer to the centerline. -Ky

Lightbulb car

I seen Josh Cyrul car at the 2007 novak the only thing that was the same as the stallion was the toe blocks....it was fast,he was on pace in every class but he said they didn't like it becaus it geared more for foam
