I agree with you... No I am not pro, but I have planned a trip starting from January 2005 to tour the globe and race on all the popular tracks I can, I am planning on a year... Then I can call myself pro as it will be my proffession

Yeah.. my dear Harry, patience is a virtue... I will start the Tour in the begining of 2005. I look forward to racing you too.... The ultimate matchup.... HPI... and and OFNA...

I guess I won't be seeing you any time soon...I think that "world trip" funding might be a little more than a maxed out credit card(and a wife who seems to be more controlling than a futaba 3PK)will allow......(BTW,why did you mention OFNA?....Is there a similarity between it and the other chinese made car you own?)

Default Centax prob fixed

Installed additional shim to take out the clutch end play. Now there is minimal end play. Thanks Glenn.

I made two switch mount templates, one of which is shown here.

Well, there wasn't anything new for Serpent at RCX.
They didn't even have the prototype of the 1/8 F1.
I did talk with a guy from Hudy.
He said that they are still working on an updated setup tool for the 710.

If I could get more free time, I might add a 950R to my collection.
