good to see you posting !!

My experience with a conical header on a .12 is that the bottom end is not all that good but middle range and top speed is a little better, please note that clutch and carb setting gets more critical !
I would still go for the 2170 pipe system for the short to medium tracks, and give that conical header a try on longer tracks.

Note that the picture on the Border site is from a .21 header
no official pic's yet !?
He Rob you know we can Help you with Evolva's hihihi

yep still waiting for the new foto's but the manifolds are in thats what counts

Default Radio Tray Work

Finished clipping all the fat off of the servo's etc... and Finally got my radio tray finished.
Put new ends on the wires and transferred the wires on the battery pack over to the r/h side of the car.

Less clutter all the way around , and in addition to the wire shortening I added some extenders to the radio tray with rubber grommets in the holes to dampen any vibes or impacts that may occur.

Default Time To Try it out

I'm going to run it Friday night if it doesnt rain, and let er rip in Las Vegas at the Speedline Race In a couple weeks.

I see that Mike Swauger the Winternats race winner in Florida and Josh Cyrul are entered.

Pretty light sign ups at this point, however, Vegas is Vegas and there is always something to do !!!!!!!!!

You mean the carb restrictor (conical aluminium carb insert)?

I'm sure there are many benefits but I've used them from time to time to:

1) extend my run time. When racing on long flowing tracks with a 5 port turbo engine, I sometimes find that I run out of fuel at just under 5 minutes. Its not enough to complete the heats! A carb restrictor, while reducing overall power slightly, will definitely help in this situation.

2) to have a smoother power-band. Again, depending on the track and your throttle finger style, you may find that on tight technical parts of certain tracks that you're overshooting despite just only touching the throttle. A carb restrictor can also help here.
