The car handled very well and the set up was pretty close to stock.

Good job guys!!! Keep it coming. Congrats to all of you. 720 baby

Good luck to all the Team attending this week the European Champioship.

Looks like the rain is the main issue at the moment.

Good Luck Julius

Thanks Paolo,

Will say hi to the other guys for you.
Seems like the rain will be around the whole week.
Probably tomorrow and wednesday things could dry a bit, but later in the week more rain is forecast.....

Oh well, better get those rain tires out!

Thanks for the batteries.........they worked really good
Glad they worked. I didn't get a chance to cycle them so they should work better once they properly conditioned. I'm talking to some lipoli people and they should have they good ones by the time we get home. I picked up a switchless regulator for you as well. How was the race with the new car? Are you ready to de-allen my car yet? We are still on the big island, should be back in a couple of three weeks. Next time you should come with us, plenty of giggly giggly here.

Jim

Hi Guys

The rear camber linkage has a portion that is squared off. This section is used for camber adjustments.

Does anyone know the size of this squared off portion, is it 3mm wide?

Regards

Acid

No, no problem for your steering servo....

But it will be a problem for your throttle servo......

The new rule book says that the wing can't be mounted to the chassis, it has to be mounted to the body...but it doesn't say anything about where the body mount should be located.
