Paul,

can you post your set up on the truggy? It's close but fought it all weekend during our trophy race. I actually pulled it off during the b-main, it was tickin me off so bad. On the up side I pulled off a third place finish in Buggy

WOW! What was it doing/not doing?
Good to hear about your buggy finish, but I am concerned about the truggy issues?
You are running the brown springs (stiff) front and rear, right?
I have a matching body for the buggy for the one thats on your truggy, btw
Thought I would give you 1st dibs on it.

Anyway man I owe you for dropping the ball on sending you swag for the race, I feel horrible, lemme know what I can do to make it up to you/your track!

The rear toe is incorrect, its at 2.5, not 3.5 as I accidentially filled out.
I will do a current one and post it soon

The suspension was just off. I kept ending up on my lid. Not sure if it was oil choice or hole locations. I also shorten the wheel base front and back as the track had a few winding sections. I'm running the stock springs that came with the kit.

The swag would have been nice but we still got the army name out there as I was sporten both army bodies. I also supplied two of my 3 army tees to the pot and a set of truggy tires in the z army name. I had several guys check out the rides in the pits after seeing them make their way around the track

I've got another trophy race in Aug I'll hit you up for

Oh man the stock springs are too soft, I ran them for one race and it wallowed because of them.
