lol.... it was those mugen parts you have on your car that let you down... I have thought about taking the oneway bearing out of the car to reduce the weight seeing i don't use the pullstart.

If you use a RS12 and tape a OS pull start to it does it count as being in the pull start class as the rules say the "engine must be equiped with a pull start"? Define "equiped".

you've got a point man. For Meakin Park this is ok, but not for Brendale. The President may have something to say about this though.

It's simple. You turn left, win and take loser(s) car. Repeat as necessary. So far, I've taken an RS4, NTC3, MRX3, MTX2, Impulse, Impact and a Veteq. Mah latest win is a '94 Supra Twin Turbo. Oh, yeah, I'm not a pro, just some circle jerk guy. And... Oval does not suck if I'm getting all those cars. Whose next?? You gonna show Mr. OvalSucksAtBart128??

And you drive a CEN car right?? What does my name have to do with 128?? I don't get it. Where do you race.. I want to start taking some cars too. If you are not a pro and still wins, I guess the "pro" must be very pro or some know-it-all-person. Come on.. get me hooooked up.

I just started out not too long ago... and heard about the RR and the R or whatever and it is suppose to be good. But then some guy commented on the mount, but who cares now.. finally I registerd and start asking questions. Is the MRX-3 better than the RR? Can i put a .21 in it? What color is it chassis? I really want a blue chassis. Do I have to put together the car? Or is like 100% assembled? or 10% or 0%? Is Oval racing really the way to go?? It seems all the pro are there. Please help me....

ok - here is an HPI forum quality question. Can a big block be crammed into a voner? I know I thought I saw adelmundo talking about trying it long ago.

It won't fit. I lent my BB .15 to a local V One R driver because he wanted to see if it would fit out of curiosity, but I think there wasn't enough clearance or something.

The new generation of .12's have more than enough power and then there's also Motorman if you're looking for more speed.

Is the Big Block bettter in Oval? Someone answer me about the Colam Bart Station race thingy? I mean... you guys set up a track or just run around poles? I think I can hit them if I am not careful. How do you guys get sooo much money for R/C, you guys have family or you just feed peas to your family's members? I am just kind of curious, because this R/C thing takes a lot of money.

I know having a job help.. but I seen people come out with stuff that spread across 3 pit tables...... also I remember a guy's sig up here have like 4 V-OneRs and many other cars... those... are just excessive do you think? But getting so much money to support so many cars is kinda crazy... I suppose you must make at least 100k a year or so... with no house payment, no car payment, etc etc...

Still.. how much tires do you V-OneR guys use on one day? Is the tires pre mounted or we have to mold our own tires? What's the best setup? Do you make your right tire bigger than the left tire so it handles the oval better? What kind of surface is the colma bart station?
