Questions?? Body Position?

How do you guys measure the body position with this new front bumper? Do you measure from the cut out part in the middle or from the sides that are closer to the front? (I hope that made sense. )

I use the central dome & would like to know what position to use.

That is actually a Serpent LOLA made by Central RC with part #31490 same EFRA number, it was never a Dome, the only body that is called a DOME is the KYOSHO "DOME" with part #FMB02.

Anyway, who cares what its called.

All I wanted to know was how far forward do you mount it. And which part of the bumper to you measure the body position from?

OCC, with the front wheel base short I put the front tire squarely in the cut out line on the Central, the same for the Parma. Taking a measurement off the bumper doesn't work too well IMO. The best way to measure, independent of the car is to use your calipers from the outside of the front of the body to the centerline of the axle. This how Ciccarrello and I compare our body position from his Mugen to my Kyosho, or vise/versa.

He's the shock absorber guy too! Once the next shipment comes in, I hope Rich will put the Empire touch on my car.

Chavo dahling,

I do shocks only. I think I did, like - well, like, 6 just for Adkins. Other than shocks - they have me manning the smoke signals while they race.

Izzy,

Your in luck. I just got off the phone with Rich Browne of Empire Racing Fame, and he tells me that he is building Special Edition Kyosho cars for any one who will pay the price for these cars. This is a chance of a life time for most people.

Good luck with your car sales Rich and Team Empire Racing!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. Blackketter,

You know I hate building cars. I can talk about them at length - build them - oh, no. That can be left to you and Jim Adkins. On that note, my good buddy, Jim Adkins would be happy to build and prepare cars for any who may be interested.

This is a chance of a life time for most people.

Good luck with your car sales Jim Adkins and Empire Racing Away/Travel Team!!!!!!!!!!
