I definately want that chassis for my MRX4...my stock one was for so me reason not roar legal in terms of weight. Other than that, I'd definately want to get those eccentric hubs. I'll see about the other upgrades.

Hey what's up Pooh? It's Marcos from the Sugar Bowl. I'm trying to get ready for winter Nats. Like I said I saw your corner speed with the "R" and I liked it. Just trying to get faster.

I really think it would b a great idea 2 get the R. The car has more corner speed and it's more stable. If u think my car was good at the bowl. Wait till the Winternats! If u need any help give me a call.

Pooh,

I'm caught between buying an R or a 35 plus 21 for WinterNats. I figured if I could get away with doing a conversion and save a few bucks it would be easier on the walet to get the 35 plus.

I would have to agree with Pooh. Getting a new engine will make you go faster, but if your car goes through the corners faster and easier, an older motor will do the trick just as well. And the R is more tunable.

By the way - Try a stock Ninja. Just as fast as a stock 35 but over a $100 less. Same price difference with the mods too. Sorry for the shameless plug.

Very good idea to ship the package or at least put them as check in baggage instead of hand carry items to cabin.

My friends lost fuel tanks, fuel bottle, and 100 bucks fuel gun on return flight from Brisbane ( 1/10 GP World Championship in Australia ) to Jakarta due to extra airport security after the UK bombing plot discovery.

Same ol thing Sohlman. Glad u're going 2 the toys 4 tots. I'd like 2 try and make that race next year. Other than that I'm just getting as much stick time as I can b4 the winternats. My car is really running GREAT! I can b more relaxed than in New York. I got 2 spend more time with the car. Kick ass in Cali. Tell Mike and the guys I said, what's good?

Even checking bags can be an issue. Friend of mine never got bag at last years WinterNats. And this was going there...before it was nitro sucked. But, I'm sure people have had lost or damaged shipments too. I'm just insuring it and hoping for the best.

BTW - It costs about the same as checking in a third bag...around $50.
