Nigel's car was awesome! We were running good together in the first heat but something let loose in my car and it wasn't the same. He smoked me the rest of the day - and everyone else for that matter.

Anyone that runs out of gas on the track twice and still wins the A main is fast. Good job Nigel.

Are you going to the worlds now?

My R40 is in pieces, first I was flying down the back stretch in the 2nd heat and a car was sitting there dead that no one called - BAM.

Fastharry got it for me - it looked like a broken bumper so I went back out with it, BIG MISTAKE. 5 seconds later it took off - FLAT OUT down the stretch and straight into the board/curb. Can you say twisted. UGLY.

Oh well, it was good to see everyone. Still had a 3rd and two 5th place finishes in the A's.

And in case it wasn't said - FASTHARRY won the Nitro Stock A main in fine style! He held the TQ after round one, qual'd fourth overall and won by about 3 or 4 laps.

And if its true that races are won in the pits - then I deserve all the credit since I pitted him in his races.

I'm using 3~2mm shims on each side like the book says. I tried all kinds of combo with the 3 and 1 mm shims, but it didn't help. I guess the plastic thickness is pretty accurate.

Anybody else getting worn universals?

Adlawoo- Thanks! If I can recall I think you were under a red tent?

Treky- Thanks! It's always a pleasure racing with you guys every year. You did well too with three respectable A main finishes. I will go to the Worlds if everything goes well.

Harry- Congrats on your well deserved win! No more SlowHarry name calling again Good job Fastharry!

Rapid Roy- You need to keep the universals lubed. I used to have the same problem until I started using mobil 1 synthetic bearing grease which I got from the auto store and it works very well. Bearing oil will work well too.

Hey guys, I got a quick question....

What causes the fuel to spash up when you open the cap to re-fuel the car?

I'm asking because I never had this problem before, but now I do. And I've changed a couple things on my car so I don't know what exactly cause this to start happening.

-I went to a new engine

-I shortened my fuel line considerably

Thats about it.... I always had a little bubbling there when the cap was open, not like this!

Anyway....any insight might be appreciated.

Thanks

I did the same thing ... shorter fuel line. I then learned that a longer one will prevent foaming. You could also use the large Kyosho fuel filter without the screen with a shorter line. But I just went to a longer (at least 8in) fuel line.

Let me know if this makes a difference.

BTW ... I appreciate your insight on the new OS. Can't wait to get mine.

Don't forget, one-ways are more of a track layout thing. Its not neccesarily a must have.

That was my guess as well, that the shorter fuel line was the culprit.

Heres my impressions of the new O.S.

Thanks, but I've been following the thread from the beginning. Keep up the updates. I may need them when I get my engine in.

Well I just lengthened my fuel line back to what it was before I switched engines. So hopefully that will return me to being able to refuel the car without getting a nitro fuel shower!
