Yeah, he was also using 40 shore....basically he was driving his 1:10th like a 1:8th - add to this his skill level and the answer is clear I suck!
Based upon that math... I suck also

Hmmm, well, he did have a habit of just appearing on the driver's stand without warning ..... you may well have a point!

Don't bet on it. I'm sure I am at least a level below you... but I'm having fun.

He was using a front one-way, which was quite nice to drive, actually, but he had set his rear diff to almost solid - for me, even only slightly tight and the car fish-tailed all over the place.
Mark...with the high traction I thought the car was pretty good with a tight rear diff and one-way. Maybe a little more rear toe? Perhaps something else was wrong with the car. Traction rolling was another story

Btw...I totally forgot about the Fioroni race!! You need to email me a setup for that track.

I can vouch for Jag (suck and blow) .

Jag....Tino is looking for company this weekend at Kissimmee.

Mainly because you neither suck nor blow

hi,
i am having some shock towers made for the 710. they will be made of carbon fibre and 4 mm thick. if i buy 100 of them, i can get them for roughly $500 to $550. i am looking for 10 people who would like to go in on this. it would be roughly $50-55 for each person. we would split all the shock towers evenly, 10 each. i have three people who are in so far--- francis lee, omar (twister tires), and robert (all from south florida). please email me to [email protected] if interested.

Well I'm just repeating what you said

Omar is going to the Nitro shootout. I think Tino is going but he's flaky.

Joe....It's Francis. Let me know when you ready. I broke two shock towers at the WinterNats. The towers you did for the RRR is an exact replacement. I know these should be just as good.

Somehow I just can't break my original "thin" shock tower They both even survived the Winternats without a scratch!

Funny... I am still running my stock (thin) shock tower. Maybe you have to suck and blow to keep from breaking it.
