Any chance you might bring up the subject of the 2WD Classic class to some racers while you're there ?

I am sure I will. If there is time, I might also mention something during the driver's meeting. The Motonica GP takes place at the same track every spring, so maybe next year we'll have an exhibition class for these cars.

Hey Garen, when is that race normally? Maybe I can make that one. I can put it on the schedule for now since Im going to miss the Paris race.

Normally it's mid to late April. I think we had announced a tentative date of April 23-25, 2010 at the driver's meeting of this year's race, but I need to talk to Rich and nail down a firm date. I am thinking of moving it into May. As soon as we finalize plans I will post here.

Garen, I think you forgot that the Kamikaze race is in May.

Sam, my apologies, but I thought the Kamikaze race was in February, and was rescheduled due to weather. Check your email.

Hey Guys,

I got to test the car on track yesterday for the first time, the Air temps was Bloody hot 37C (99F)

Car felt really nice to drive even thou the car was still running in and not up to full speed.

Did notice the 2speed is rather smooth engagement and you have to have the ear to hear it shift.

Just quick question, the Thrust bearing can i use any model for spares?

Also the flyouts clucth shoes, who sets there rear flyouts like a flipper style, some i have seen use this effect and some still use the normall system as per book.


cheers
Frankie

Any same size thrust bearing should work.

Do you have the fly weights between the pins or on the pins so they rotate out like a 3 shoe off road clutch?

Try placing them on the pins so they swing out.

I use the GIO clutch on my car and you can only place the weights between the pins. When I use(d) the Motonica clutch, I always placed the weights on the pins and experimented with adding set screws in the unused holes of the weights, and also tried the yellow weights and shoe.
