I will , just not in here.... For all I know right now, my car could be heavier. But from what Ive seen most have not used or decided not too on all the things I have in the car currently. Either that or I havent even seen some of the things I have done mentioned.

Everything that I have brought up something has something that isnt good or said about it. I just said screw it and used everything that was lighter. But yeah just about everything has been talked about.

It drives great. Just gotta dial the booger now.

I think tommorrow Im going to just walk into a staples/officemax and ask for a demonstration on one of the big exspensive scales...lol.

So what's your tip on the LW adjustments??? I know I'll cut down a few grams with the pivots and pins, but where do you shave 40 to 50 grams jus like that? I'am using the 5 triple AAA battery now, so where can I shave some more???

From what I have heard it should be out either this month or the next... I cant wait to either buy the 2005 kit, the Hara version or the parts to make my version into a 2005...

Yeah!!! seems to me the chassis will be more rigid because the battery will have to be placed before you put the gas tank, therefore making the bottom stronger. also the steering servo looks like it's hidding underneath the gas tank and the upper deck. I can't wait... I just hope the car is lighter than the 2004 edition... I also wonder what the HAra version will have different than the 2005 edition

Well - you arent just seeing things for sure -- try his email then...

[email protected] or (512)825-6047

He usually has several dozens of tires at any given race. Good luck!
