I have 2 cars one has stock and one has teflon it does stop beter but as for your not having any brakes with new pads i'm scratching my head. hold the car (not running ) and go fullthrottle and then full brake i've noticed the brake arm will stay and not return you have to put a stopper on the linkage to return the brake

I heard that the fastest guy there was Mike S, and that Hara had nothing on him, but unfortunately, Mike's rx pack died on him. I think they ran an hour main.

looking at the OHIO thread,they said that Hara had great pit stops...........Thad Garner gets the best pit man award...

well,maybe not the best....TREKY11 was my pit man at the HPI Challenge.....and did a superb job of helping me win the race...

I wouldn't say that exactly, Swauger had engine on him and made more bobbles driving, and I don't think it was his rx pack that died, I heard it was the connecting rod of the engine. Hara's setup is very similar to last years with the exception of 42 F/R tires, #4 rear shock piston, and stock front springs. Oil was 60 F 50 R. Gearing was 60/22, 52/28.

I was there. He was using a fully loaded R40 of course like the 2004 spec. Thad and Hara were very helpful with any of the HPI drivers; they won more than on the track.
