Do they come in American sizes to accomodate are beer bellies? I need one. I'll send you an email later.

joe- got your message, i'll call you later.

The jackets do run a size small, this according to Motonica, so they shipped me one size bigger on all sizes ordered. The zips on the side do allow more belly room. I'll get everything checked in tonight and start shipping tomorrow.

Brad- how is that front body mount coming? Need help with the design?

Scotty- I'll call you later today

Everywhere, never in the same place twice. I even broke one in 6 pieces.

Kinda makes you wonder, if this is the only weak link discovered at this stage, must be a pretty robust car. I have mine now and can't wait to drive it either at the Fort, the Port, or Homestead! Whichever comes first!

The car is very strong with the exception of the front body mount and the servo mount is brittle towards the back where it is very thin. The A-Arms on the car are almost indestructable.

Here is my setup from the Airtronics Race in Vegas.



I got word from Motonica to try boiling the front body mount to help 'soften' it a little. Be careful not to melt the part. Boiling or soaking plastics in water is an old trick, I will try it for the next race for sure.

Looks cool............All of my stuff is at the anodizer turning green right now. I'll post some pics when I get it all back and assembled. I will have my "Y" brace and brake arms for sale green anodized as well.


Garen, High traction? not so much? Well at least our rear roll centers were the same.

Well, it was normal high traction, not the super sticky surface like at the race last month. You still had to work to setup your car to the track, not the other way around.
