Sounds like a good deal. This last year was my first year of racing, and I love it (I ran with the Fastlane guys at Perrywood). While the LD3 held it's own, I want another machine. I've got a Integy setup jig and have a caliper coming in, but have no real good concept of what does what on the suspension. I want to be ready for this season to really give them a run.

LOL. He usually does. He may jump to 1/8 this year, not really sure. Toward the end of the points series, we were the only cars running; the others either didn't show or died in the pits. If he does, I know he's dropping the NTC3.

Oh, rumor has it S&J may run with Fastlane this year, if they can get the 'wood' issue resolved

It looks like they forgot to include the holes on the Radio Plate for the optional transponder mount

Well, I will just have to wait and see. Between the R40, MTX3, G4 and now this, it will be a hun season. I know a lot of people like the Mugen, but parts aren't th eeasiest to get. The R40 wil have very easy access to parts, since EVERYBODY seld HPI stuff, but it's being nkocked for weight and a few quality issues. As far as the G4, it looks nice but may end up like the Reflex. And my poor Ofna just gets no respect, no matter what it does...

Front shocks stood up will give you faster steering input. Good for smaller tight tracks where you need to car to change directions fast. When you lay the front shocks down, the steering input gets slower but you get more side bite during the corner. Good for tracks that have larger sweeping corners. I hope I got that right !

It is all a mater of comparison. If you stand up the shocks you will achieve the same as using lower shocks with stiffer springs and damping. In effect you chang the ratio between the wheel movement and the shock movement. There is also a small change in progressive to more linear movement but that is very small.
