For the US drivers, what support exists this year for the cars? I am not clear if Kamikaze will be selling them (I have no information but the inventory on his sight is low). Don't see any other shops carrying the cars?

As for the sellers in Australia and other places, please do not remind me that you will ship half way around the world I am looking for US support. Thanks

Default Lab C01 roller

I'm looking to sell my C01 roller. Onroad racing never took off here. Plus i've been bitten with Offroad bug. What is a good selling price?

I agree. Most of the parts that break are out of stock. Like the arms (upper and Lower) Front and rear. Every time I check the web site it says out of stock. I've checked periodically since October. Maybe the web site is not updated?

Fellas quick question, How can you tell what ankerman pill you have in the co1 or co2? I have taken it out and there's nothing that says 10,11, or 12 on it. I guess if you have em all then it will b easy to distinguish the 3......

The black progressive springs start off being a bit softer compared to the standard black springs and end being a bit harder.

The black plastic is the new hard plastic, this is a super hard plastic which works best when the traction is high or when it's hot. The dark grey plastic is the standard or medium plastic which has been in the standard kits. The light grey plastic is a soft plastic which works well on a low traction track. I wouldn't advice using is when it's warm or when the traction is high.

Start off with the stock setup with the standard black springs. If this doesn't work go to softer damping and springs, ie 550 with 3 holes and red springs.
