flloyd is always open, prospeed is a great place the track needs a bit more traction in places but it's a fun atmosphere most of the guys are helpful and the track is a bit more teqnical then high speed but they do vary the layout so you never really know till you get there. you have the link to the website? if not here it is ProSpeed Raceway

Motor is probally to lean now. Check your clutch and see if the adjuster nut has screwed it self in. IF it did put some thread lock on it and set it back to stock.

Default New Body!!!!

Well Regg, we said it would be best to get some downtime at Floyd. I'm waiting for a guy to go there today for the update and see what goes on. For now, this is the body I'll be running.

The best way to run a motor is to find the optimum tuning point and richen a little to allow the most power and proper cooling. You should also watch your exhaust. If smoke isnt coming out on throttle then your possibly running to hot.

Hope that makes sense. I will post a guide to what you are supposed to do when you are faced with different temperatures , humidities and so on.
that'd be great! thanks! will wait for ur post.

Here ya go:



Its sometimes a bit different than what you would think and also keep a look out for what the humidity and temperature are.

When you tune your motor and you find the sweet spot and say ok its tuned. That day, go inside and check the weather in your area and record the temp at what time and the humidity. That way the next day, month or year you can check out how it was set on whatever and compare that days humidity to the current and adjust accordling.

Or if your having trouble you can always reference it.

I'm sitting here reading my new rcdriver and they have a review of the .12 5 port TZ in here. The motor makes 1.87bhp @ 37147. and it revs to about 45000. Me thinks that OS will be seen much more in the big events.

Anyone gonna comment on my new paintings yet?

NSX- I went with a Integy 16x4 pro charger and it works great! Not only can I charged my 12v starter box battery, I can charge anything big or small from 1 to 15cells. Also it will run on the 12v batteries I use to charge my starter box. For $150 it's worth it.

I recall someone saying it provides stability under hard acceleration and more traction on highbite surfaces. I pretty much setup my R40 and it runs great with the gear diffs. Not gonna be able to try the one ways and solid rear though.
