Man I love this car. It just handles so well smooth and predictable which is a good fit for me. I had a couple issues yesterday but no big deal. One thing I did learn is if you use an inner hole on the tower and middle or outer link on the rear hub you need a shim on the tower to push the link out a little bit. This came straight from Lutz. Thanks for the help and support yesterday.

Ohh ya I lost a front bumper yesterday too. Oops but we do run on the demo derby track in the winter around here. It is a blast.

Did moving the link in on the rear hub help set the rear end or did it rotate quicker?

I just wanted to add that Frank's car looks very good going around the track. I know he has a very different Diff/shock set-up than me but for him it really does work. If you are a smooth driver and not overly aggressive Frank's buggy set-up would be a good one to try out!

(I ran 20-20-6 in my diffs yesterday and really like it! :-) haha But we all know i'm a little more on the aggressive side! ;-)

mazzinga I use the mugen outer foam element, you have to cut it to fit the filter case, it's not perfect but I think itīs a better foam.

Thanks Ryan
But I have to give credit to the mad scientist he helped tons with my setup. Coming over and watching the video seeing what the car was doing and then setup changes and a test day got the car to where it was. And then theres the splash guard that keeps fuel off my ko servo. Thanks mad scientist.
