PSI, that would only be good if you plan to build a second car from bits and pieces. Or you plan to do a refurbish of your current car due to old age and bashing.

From what I see in here you're a pretty decent driver and therefore you would not be breaking most of those things.

Even if you go into the boards regularly, the best spares to have are (if you race clockwise) the left steering block, perhaps the upper bumper, and maybe the left wishbones in case you snap you pivot balls and leave the shaft in them.

I'll talk to a 3hobby.com user ... you go to the Shout Box there too and leave him the same message. He's BazManMugen ... he regularly brings his video camera to the track.

On the other hand if I lose, I confiscate the tape and if Mark loses he confiscates the tape so what's the point?

Look, I'll pay good money to keep that tape out of the internet - you know that in RC, money is no object!

We'll come to an agreement about this one, Sow. I have a plan, it involves: a video camera, BazManMugen, a frying pan and a nasty accident!

I was hoping that the screw kit from East had the bottom screws.
I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I'm going over there to try the car out with a touring body after the F1 qualifying session. Seems that the club folks will switch over.

So .. you'll be happy but I recommend you practise clockwise.


Oh, I'm going to try a stock 27 turn motor too.

I'd just like to make it clear that due to my extreme right-handedness, I'm mega quick going anti-clockwise, but really slow clockwise - so it is a forgone conclusion that Sow will beat me But if by some miracle, I beat him.....

I see he's terrorizing the electric threads right now.
I shouldn't have said anything.
He'll probably be back tomorrow.
