WooHoo ... careful Mark, when you're at Fort Meyers a few of them 1/8th and 235mm drivers are gonna remember that comment. Did anyone tell you that on the first 3 practise days its combined practise?

Yes, or not only will you have your trousers well and truly round your ankles but your shirt well and truly round your forehead as well!

I don't think so. The old RC adage comes true... "When you think you're fast, soimebody else is always faster..."

So far the've mentioned that you need to run TC shell. Width should not be more than 200 mm. The main cooling hole should not be more than 60 mm. Can't remember if they allow fueling hole. Fuel to be max 25% nitro. Tank capacity should not be more than 75 cc in the tank up to and including the carb tubing. That's all I can remember off my head...

If time doesn't heal then time will tell.

Otherwise, view the WinterNats video again and try to remember WHERE on the track that you need to ensure you don't have a Lola car behind you. Like Ray said ... "There were a LOT of crashes ... "

My 710 finally can turn Got the longer servo saver and the rear roll bar set, used the 3mm bar. I used the default setup with exception of red springs, 40wt AE shock oil, 6mm rear droop. -1 front droop, 7mm ride height suing Hudy setup fixtures and to compensate for tire size and wear
Just got to do a little more suspension tunig and a lot of driver tuning

I nearly updated the FAQ the other week, but I wasn't sure if it was worth it or not - no one seems to read it these days
Mark, keep updating the FAQ. I have a printed copy that I take to the track and use as my first referance when there is a question.

Thanks for all the hard work.

PS If you could release a copy that all the web links allow click and go would really help.
