Default shock towers,

francis and john,
thanks a lot for the support of building the shock towers. i did get about 5 guys who wanted to proceed, but to tell you the truth, i am getting a bit tired of trying to talk people into taking advantage of a great deal. so at this point, i am going to cancel this project. but if you guys get the people, i will get back into it. so far, it has been more of a headache than what its worth.

Can you hear the violins in the background?

J/k joemugen.....hey, with a name like that, why would you need a shock tower for a 710?

Funny, I don't remember you having to make parts for your MTX-3

Hi Jack - I think I must have had a localised high stress test on that carbon fiber plate

It was great meeting up with you - the people of RCTECH really made the Winternats even more special for me - to meet all those great people.
I saw a couple of cars with the LOLA bumper - D also mentioned using this.....is it possible to cut it down a little to conform with the roar rules?

Cheers, Mark.
Mark, when you set your body down on top of the LOLA bumper you will find that the tips of the angles on the front edge stick out past the relaxed front body line. Actually, the body can be pressed down over the bumper and it will stay under the body. BUT, if the body posts got loose, or the body deformed then it might not pass tech inspection. The rule states that "Bumpers will not extend forward of the body.... The bumper may not extend to the side beyond the outer edge of the tires."
So I set the body on the bumper, mark the edge of the body with a Dremel cutoff wheel, remove the body and cut to fit with the cutoff wheel. I finish it with the sanding cylinder. It doesn"t take much cutting to get it to fit. I then put a restraining strap across the top to prevent the bumper from bending down and in on impact (thanks to Kelly from Parma).

Sounds like something I will at least need to do for the next Winternats Thanks for the info, Jack.

What do you mean "rocks"? There are rocks all over the place. They might be small but they are still rocks. Just in case you couldn't tell, the roads in Fla suck! There is road construction from one end of the state to the other.

I can tell you what there is plenty of over on the west coast of Fla... seashells, lots of seashells. If you are going to the beach, wear shoes. Everytime I go to the west coast my feet get torn up.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Only a Floridian would mistake a seashell for a rock. Out west we call a rock a ROCK if the top of it is over 10,000 feet!

The highest point in Florida is Britton Hill, Lakewood Park
in Walton County and is only 345 feet above sea level. ...

We have sand dunes in Death Valley that are taller.

But I grant you, we don't have the Winter Nats!!
