Fun memories I should have it all worked out next time we come out. Thanks again for all your help
Every car will break if crashed the right way. But, In my opinion the whole drive train is binding. Front diff, rear diff, and the main shaft! it is soo tight Ive watched smoke come out of the motor just trying top turn the motor.

I honestly suggest a more modern budget car that is under $150. ie. spec R, 3racing, yokomo, associated, hpi/hotbodies, and Tamiya. Like I said, you will have much more help with a more capable car.

Lewis Carroll quote: "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get". Hmmmm.... This kinda applies to racing doesn't it?

I just remembered...I have long standing plans for this weekend so I will not be there on Sunday. If anyone wants a prepped track race day please contact me so I can arrange to get the battery for the sprayer delivered to someone to bring to the track.

The smell of death is still lingering at the track. I could smell it from the gas station across the street. Its seriously that trash bag at the corner.
