You guys are only seeing the "star" side of Alexs, but I can tell you that the guy is very genuine and kind - one of the nicest guys I met on the race track during my time there.
In F3 he was mega quick - I saw him overtake a guy on the outside of a turn on the last lap - it look like he was going to spear off the track big style, but somehow he got around the guy - it was the most impressive piece of driving I have seen in F3.
Unfortunately, shortly after this Alex had a very big accident at Spa - he was luckly he wasn't killed! After this accident he was never really the same again. Personally, although he never mentioned it, I think this affected him really badly - I'm not surprised either!!
The step up to F1 was wrong for him, perhaps if he'd had a couple more years in F3000, he would have settled down.
End of speech
Now he's happily married and a father ... amen.

Hey there guys... looking for the sping configs and for the different spring sets... I found this.....


Just who is this InitialD guy who keeps hogging the lime-light? ;-)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Base on current facts, we can report that he:
1. Is a woman
2. Has hairy legs
3. Has a big pot belly
4. Has a moustache
5. Hes very old
6. Has some kind of fetish to do with polka dots!
7. Likes bermudas
8. Likes to be close to snakes!
And is somewhere in these pictures:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...&postid=507744


from this I deduce that... Dees apple had a bit taken out by a hacker and he slashed this in or... Dee is losing it to his apple...


You know... windows suck... I prefer doors, at least I can walk outside to drive my 710... but it isnt here yet, so I need to dream and watch through windows...

On a more serious note. I am intwo minds about a bag... I can get a large serpent bag or a trinity bag, both for a similar price, but I want to know if one would be able to carry a 200mm tourer in the serpent bag. pity trinity have a nice bag, should have serpent on it....

Are you using offset GQ tires? Perhaps the 1 mm shorter Impact dogbones on each side will work fine but I do not find any problem when I go down to 197 mm trackwidth in the rear with the current stock dogbones. The pivot ball at the upper rear arms need to go in max but without binding the edge of the arms. Camber is -3.5 and -3. Perhaps with -4.5 camber, it would be more difficult to keep the rear trackwidth to below 200 mm.
0 offset of GQ when comparing to Ellegy EVI rims (stock green) is differ by .5mm. So when you set the trackwidth 200mm with GQ (0 offset) you must put .5mm spacer when putting EVI wheels.
In front, differ by 1mm !!
Not sure, which one is correct.
But when you use Yokomo setting wheel, the GQ ones is have exactly the same trackwidth.

dee, I must admit that you make me laugh ALL the time. I hope you realise I am only joking... I mean no offense. I have a basket of ~$1000 with rc-mushroom and about $100 with Towerhobbies... I want time to fly... and it is our elections soon... I hope we get a good president in as we are struggling with 'appartheid' against us white minority... but it will play havoc with customs.... and they will charg me 10% customs that is not 10% but more like 35%
