What BigTime is referring to, is a time last year I was running a drilled plastic c-hub in the front. The hole I drilled is in the middle of the two holes, but lower. It allows you to run the L bushing, but still lower your front roll center to get the car to rotate harder into the corners. I went back to the standard inner hole and liked it better. I'll still drill em for you if you want though , sorry about that!

Here's some Kyosho porn:

If that's not a dialed looking car, I don't know what is. ZOMG!

Yep, still at work...ugggh, 5:45am till now...super hurting.

Wow, Boots running the fastest laps, along with several other fast guys (Ronnefalk and others not running Kyohso), with AKA Moto tires Either this is a big joke, or the World's track is insanely different from anything any pro has run.

It does look like the Moto is a solid tire at the World's after seeing the Lutz and Pavidis interviews on neobuggy. Even if that tire does win the worlds, I don't see myself buying them for my tki3 for my local track

Just after the Kyosho race at Rev. Came back home lol.

Who knows what tire will work after the track possibly gets drenched tonight. Could be anyones guess. But the end of the week/weekend is supposed to be dry, so I'm not sure that tire will be the fastest. Boots also was quicker on other tires later. Phend and Ty look solid on the Pro-Line rubber, I'm guessing the track is going to change and favor smaller pins (than that other tire, like Blockades, Big Blox) towards the end of the week/weekend. Just a hunch.

7k in the front, what are you all using for the center and rear? My base is nearly always 7k front, and 5k in the rear. The center diff is the wildcard ranging from 7-12k....

I've run 7/5/4 before, but didn't like it that much. I have also run 6/4/4 before, but that was only marginally better than 5/5/3. Right now, I'm on 7/5/3, and might try 7/7/3, but only on higher speed smoother tracks. I like the 7/5/3, it has very nice balance to it, and great pull out of the corners. Stuff like Revelation that gets blown out, 5/5/3 is pretty solid. But I'm experimenting so we'll see.

I usually default to something that's easy to drive over ballistic fast, as over the course of a long main it's easier to be consistent with an easy to drive car. Which is why I haven't gone higher in the center diff, but I'll try it out soon just to see how I like it.

Anyone has any updates on Cody? He's having a rough time there and looking so disappointed with himself yesterday.
