Well, if I can get those parts Tuesday, I'll come down. Getting some extra stuff too, just in case the trend continues. I'm a little jealous of those boxes you guys got. Need a part?...let me check...

Here's a question for whomever is inclined. Would it be a good idea to have a stiffer setup? Seemed like my car was diving a bit but since I'm not exactly up to speed or able to run consistent laps, it was hard to tell. The kit came with the softest two springs in associated's lineup (14.5 lb Front, 12 lb R; 40wt shock fl all around) and I'm wondering if I'm going to want some stiffer springs once I can get it around the track. Of course shock oil wt and various other parameters come into play when considering how it rides, so maybe I should just see how things play out.

I saw the Silver and green on your car Tim. I would suggest a starting point of Blue front/Silver rear

You probably should just get the Spring set for the car and call it a day.

Get yourself a few sets of rear hubs, front steering knuckles and c hubs. I think the c hubs come in 4 degree and 6 degree. I would get a few 4's and maybe one 6 to try out.

That's one of the reasons why it's nice to run what everyone else runs (Xray). Then if you break a part and don't have it (which is pretty rare, honestly), we would have you covered. It's good for sharing setups as well.

Got my car working great on Sunday, I was really happy with it. It's come a long way since my first time on the track with it a couple weeks ago. Glad to see some new (Tim) and old (Ari) faces at the track again.

I can practice Wednesday, gotta give Bob a call...

Thanks for the suggestions. Didn't think about the c hubs. Looked them up though and a custom part maker has them in aluminum (6 deg). Sounds more durable at least? and would look pretty cool.

Got some hubs and knuckles coming tomorrow along with a new spur gear and a couple pinions that should get me to 4.31 and 4.76 fdr, a bit closer to what you guys are running. There may be a couple other things in the package as well.

Gonna hold off on the springs and whatever else until I can get this thing around the track more than 4 times without tearing it to pieces. Or maybe I should just get the whole catalog in realization that this is the stage of my noobness that making mistakes at speed will most likely happen.

At least I should be up and running tomorrow night.

If you like Tim, let one of us drive your car, and we can make some suggestions on what to do to the setup to make it a little bit more forgiving to drive.
