Where can i buy a scale to get my car to the proper weight. I have the hudy set-up board and am just learning how to use it correctly.
I use household scales from Philips - wonder why that is Get some digital ones - they are as accurate as you need.
When you use the Hudy a few times, you'll get the hang of it - check out the FAQ, as there is a mod to the rear prisms to allow easier access to the pivot balls.

i remmeber MIP made a tweak board to balance the car, but i remmeber that racers had problems with the tweak board. Is there another version or a better one.

thanks guys.
Don't bother getting a tweak station/board - they don't work - again see the FAQ where Julius showed us why they don't work. The only method that really works is the lifting method. But make sure you do it on a very flat surface (i.e. the Hudy board) that is perfectly even and level - I actually you the spirit level from my MIP tweak station for this it's the only part worth using

Hope this helps

MArk.

Michael Wiseman had a hassle free run to claim 1st position with 94 laps in 30:14.332. Dave Wiseman was second with 87 laps in 30:01.805 despite a number of fuel cuts. Theo Christofi claimed a fine 3rd position with 87 laps in 30:09.457. The final overall results for this class were:

Wait...both mains are 30 minutes, but A-main drivers are 17 laps faster then the B-main drivers...? Wow...A-main drivers are that much better then the B's....? Or A-main is actually a 45 minutes or B's are actually 20 minutes...? Correct me if I am wrong...

I really want to race but i don't have a motor yet. If i can get the novamega 2106 and have at least one practice race at T&T, then i will race. I sold my impulse, i wish i didn't.

What track do you race at in Arizona. My buddy is really get back into racing and plan to race all over at least once a month, maybe twice.
