I may try a Murman or a Rody, if he doesn't get back to me soon, then worry about the money sent to him. Season starts next Sunday too.


was that in Edison that you were running against those cars?....

no sway bars.

there is a U turn at my track and i have to really slow down to turn and in the mids, if i on throttle, the car will just push away from the u turn into the wall!!! wahahah



help required.


most of us are running the moo MOO now ( mugens ) i have tried them and boy it was easy to drive ... but i believe there is still some hope for this car.

- change to front diffs or locked spool. that way you can brake late and take advantage of the shaft drive, turn in and punch the throtle...

- put 0 or 1 degree toe-in

No Harry, we were at Floyd Bennett. They were tuning for Edison this Sunday. Another part of the problem, might be, most of the people I recently run with, do not give me too much of a challage. Not bragging, they are at a different stage than I. So basically its me racing against myself. So, I never have to push myself. When going back to FB, there are some good driver there, and alot of hacks too. One good thing, being this is my 2nd year, is that I recognized the problem and made the proper correction. Could not have last year. Boy I wish I would have started this hobby sooner. Oh yea, mrx was working fine till I blew a cvd.

Thats what I used yesterday. I had to slightly dremel the plastice so they would fit correctly. I do not have that problem with the speed minds. If you send me your e-mail address, I can fill you in and not tie up thes board.

I REALLY hope that you meant toe in. And like they said it should be more like1.5-2.5 My car turned anywhere I wanted it too and really never got loose with 1.5 and 40 sore 30mm Elligi's on it. 45 shore 26mm up front.

NTC3NUT- I haven't seen them yet but I hope they are done now. I like the new logo too. Things are going well for him.

torchedlh- that's a cool idea although it might be something you'd have to add on your own to keep the initial cost of the product down. Great thinking though.

Default M8 & 3PK steering wheels

Swen, Let me know if Dave needs an original wheel to use for measurements. I have original wheels for both of these laying around. I would be awesome to get a billet wheel that looks like his spoked sedan wheels, in your choice of colors. I think he would sell alot of them. I could probably sell half a dozen for him right now! I talked to a few of the local racers and they all thought it would be an awesome addition to their radios. I'll be busy this season pitching his products. "Oh my God! What kind of head is that?!"

Yes the radio wheels would be very cool. I know what you mean about pitching the products. People are always asking where to get these things. Just wait until you see the left side brace I am designing right now... it's going to be very sweet.

I have the 3PK wheel right in front of me, I'll dig up the M8 wheel too. PM me and let me know when & where to send. I have one of Dave's cards, is the address @ 7604 Parkwood Rd. still correct?

Yup that's still the right one. I'll try to get ahold of him later today. Take it easy and have a good time racing this weekend. I'm out for now.

NTC3NUT: the one issue i can think of with an aluminum wheel is possible radio interferance...

Kevtherev: how do you like those kfactory shock towers, where did u get the titanium colored ones?
