Thumbs up

I agree with Mr.Black... Not much is needed.

-I salvaged and old Carbon Rear shaft from my old F102..
-The TRF Damper is a 'given' for every racer..
-Alloy motormount would be 'nice to have'..
-Still have to install my F102 turnbuckle set.. using some old TA05 steelies rite now..
-Rear Diffuser slavaged from my old F102 (does it really work?? I don't know but it looks really cool)
-5 year old Airtronics servo from my F102 w/ original Tamiya servo saver..

-O

We are trying to get them off the ground here in Detroit, but it is slow goin.
There are currently 5 of us that have them and we will be running an outdoor series at Lazer Speedway in Adrian MI which is southwest of AnnArbor this summer

i stand corrected I have been running Aluminum shocks for so long I forgot they are hop-ups.

However a plastic oil filled shock would do just as well in my opinion.

I also have one of those ald rear diffusers but I am not sure it does much with the Courage body being so dirty (aero wise) in the rear.

I still run the steal rear axle and I do not run the reaer pod spacers.

MrBlack,

What run time do you get from using a 3200 lipo in the courage? I just picked the Orion 3200 lipo and was wondering if I need to get two of them or can I get by with just one for a whole race day. Thanks.

The could use a little profiling... smooth out that bubble...IMHO. Not quite the cool factor of the helicopter cockpits of the Ferrari 512.
