Unfortunately I just found myself with a bunch of kids getting out of school. No one really bothered me, but they came to watch. I can honestly say, I'm thrilled to get the 8th running. After a while it began to run faster and faster. Surely enough I began to feel the car and push it faster. The 2speed did engage a bit early so I have to fix than after I get out of work tonight. Other than that, I had a blast running it! Really happy I sold my nitro sedan to concentrate on it. Indeed the setup I had handles VERY well and all that was left to tune was brake. After that, it was smooth sailing for me. Before I left, the spider tyres were nearly forgotten, so on those badboys went and they did provide super traction. Even when the temps dropped, traction remained the same. I guess I'll snatch up more of them puppies for the 6.25ea! There was a big puddle at the last turn and some muddy spots, and after tryin to dodge both I ended up with a lot of "crap" on my car. Brushed off and went again. I guess practicing with virtual rc really payed off, but honestly this car handles so great, that now I can believe my friend when he said " some drivers don't even use brake. After speeding down the str8 at 40mph or so, layyed off the gas 3/4 down and dove into the turn with precision. The car hardly spun out when I applied throttle, so the centax was definately set. I look forward to running it again and with other guys. I'll get the videos goin when I get back. For now, just a few clips. This car was a lot harder to drive with cam in right hand and tx in the left.

Default Tanaka to Serpent?

So has Masao Tanaka switched to the Serpent 960 now? Interesting move...

See picture.

Nsupra- It went VERY well! Just gonna clean the car off now, slap back on the old foams, adjust the 2speed for later engagement, and get ready for another run. Tires believe it or not show little wear and measured the same after a few laps. Here's my setup:

Stock Mugen settings
Novarossi TOP PT21 SP1 w/ RB #6 turbo
THS racing pipe (soon to get the new version)
JR Z-1 Spektrum
JR Z9000s steering digital
Futaba S3003 standard throttle

This car moves. Still not fully tuned to max power as I decided to warm it up with two-three tanks. On those tanks alone I was amazed with the power, control, and ease of driving. Hmm...beginning to like it more than sedan honestly! It's bout damn time I started driving it anyway.

Pooh- Definately! I can't wait to run with all the other guys after I practice up some more.

Fasamugen- THose are my LHS brand of foams, THS (tonys Hobby Shop) www.thsracing.com You can call them up and ask about the foams. He is getting new brands of tires since people are hooked on other populars (GRPS, ellegis, Forfaster, twister, fast tyres, etc). I'm gonna snag some and my Hudy guages! Need to stock up for this year.

I think he was forced to on account of the whole Novarossi/GRP feud.
