Sounds like you are a bit sensitive. Did your race go badly?

Personality could be different too.For example Ryan Mayfield is not that always smiling person.But it's doesn't mean he is stuck up ...If Reno acted not friendly he could of had a bad day ...If he wasn't friendly i am sure he gonna realize he need to change.He can't afford not to be nice !And why r u guys bashing him for BQ ing ?Is it something shame or what ?He bumped up to A and finished 6.Is it that bad?

Maybe we should come back to the topic

My first test was with a 15/10/5 diff setup and 450/400 in the shocks (5C temperature). It was more to break in everything in the car, especially the diffs.
The car was very easy.
Track was quite flat (synthetic), and a bit rutted in some limited areas.
I would have liked a bit more steering at low speed, so i hope i'll have a smaller front anti-roll bar for next time.
Same for the rear shock, as FranckL noted : i'll have to test with a softer spring.
But overall i'm happy with this first test Feeling is good

Hi guys

I'm really disappointed to read those lines...I really do my best to be as nice as possible on the track and in the pit. It's not easy to come from another country, and get used to everything on a same week end. It was my first race in USA, so maybe some guys need more understanding.
Nobody came to see me during the week end saying that I wasn't sport, and now I read those lines, this is not sportmanship! I had problems with some drivers on the track and I went to see them straight after to say sorry or to have a chat to make our relation better! I'm always here to help, and it's a pleasure to race with you guys. If you don't say anything at the track, I'm not a medium, I can't know.

If you don't believe in sportmanship, you better watch a video on youtube called sportmanship...

See you on the track
Reno Savoya

Reno,

I've seen that video and I have watched it over and over and showed it to my friends as well. You just don't see too much of that anymore and it is sad.

PS: When can we expect to see you in Houston or San Antonio? I go back and forth between the two.

Edit: Found the video for you guys.

I was actually watching that video about a week ago, that was the most amazing racing/respect I have ever seen at the track.. I think its just one bad egg saying anything negative.. I wouldn't worry about it.. As long as you continue to do what you know is right you'll never be wrong.

Great race btw,

I will definitely be there for the Pro Series, and hopefully I can make a trip up there before that. We are racing tonight so no road trip for me! Lol. Also, you've got PM.

Reno, I wouldn't take anything too serious on here when it comes to other peoples attitude. The only thing I take serious is setup tips and knowledge. All the rest is just someones opinion and you know what they say about opinions. There seems to be a trend forming where people are too damm sensitive and things get lost in translation and mis interrupted the next thing you know it's blown so far out or proportion that it has a mind of it's own. People will think what they want and just because you or your pit guys said something in French big deal. You do speak French so it's not a stretch to hear you and your guys speaking French. Sensitive is what I see It as. Do what you do best and drive. Just my opinion. BTW nice seeing you on here.

Reno,

I wouldn't even sweat it. On a side note, are you gonna make the RC Pro Series Race on March 5th in Houston? Should be a very big showing as it filled up in 2 Days

And quick question, did you replace the balls in the upper shock caps by fuel line like Lutz or you run the stock one ?

Thx
