Default What's happenin' got_speed?

Sorry about the late reply. This weekend was a killer. My big block Impulse got away from me. No real damage just my poor Lola body is not as pretty anymore. Spent most of the weekend rebuilding it. The lesson to be learned is protect your battery connection with your life. I read on the Richey mods post that you're going to build a big block Impulse. Excellent choice. .12 cannot handle the power production of bb .15. Before my runaway , I was dusting every .12 on the track. There is so much torque available at low revs my car just rockets out of turns. Even on the straight away at half throttle nothing could catch me. You will not be dissatisfied if you build it. I will post pics of new projects soon. .Novarossi R-1 .21 in Impulse and my new baby, Kyosho V-ONE RR . Good racing.

i don't get it so you have the fastest coolest car around, but who do you race???, don't get me wrong, but i am all about the racing being the best on a equal playing field..... very cool though...... but why not just jump to a impact, have better rims and tires and alittle more size without realy gaining any weight????? would be my thought of course it would be alot cheaper and you again would have a class to race with.....outlaw class still needs some restrictions, ie motor displacement, minimum weigt and chassie size, or you will soon be racing a 1/8 scale with your 1/10 scale, and if it hits you ouch.......all for 8 port modifyed .12's in a outlaw class with no restriction on body desighn, they will all be lola style of course(best aero) and it would be a killer fast racing

I totaly agree about racing on an equal playing field....that is why I run my V-One R with a legal engine .

As far as OUTLAW is concerned, so far I have not seen any restrictions on the class in my area...hence the name "outlaw" i guess. I for one would like to have a real outlaw class that have no restrictions except scale...where everyone can make homebrewed developments to make thier car faster and handle better with no limits. Why limit possibilities??

If anyone is thinking of putting some restrictions on 200mm cars running lola bodies....please call it something else but "Outlaw".


Eventualy things we learn in Outlaw will trickle down to other classes that are sanctioned.

for ifmar yes, and they have to figure them out before the world cup this summer, roar and norrca already have rules..... not sure about legality in those to sanctions though... but it is cool to be doin the bottom like the top, too bad we have to cut a hole to cool the motor, we ran a truck series a few years ago which was cool , no holes besides the motor sticking up..

Sticky Brakes

Hey guys...for those of you that have an Impulse, did you guys ever have the problem of the brake binding up? And I was just wonder does the impact bumper fit on the impulse? What are the exact parts that I will need?

Thanks.

Default Thanks guys

Thanks guys. I'll try it out. I think it is binding in the bottom hole. Even though we blow the track it is still dusty so I think the bottom hole is binding.
