Not sure, I think I might break the car if I try to do video and drive at the same time. Would interesting to watch though.. Maybe someone at the track will get some time.

Default LAB C801 Street Price $699

I just want to confirm that the USA street price for the C801 will be $699. Cars are on their way and should arrive in the middle of next week. Testing so far has gone very well and parts will arrive before the Worlds so anyone planning on racing in Homestead will be covered.

Good morning guys. Another good day of learning. The track was a lot slower yesterday and it took us a while to figure out it was the track. We were testing and not going any faster and finally decided to put everything like yesterday including the engine just to see. It turned out the track was about 3 to 4 tenths slower, as it was super hot compared to the previous day.

After learning that the track was slower we just keep working on learning the adjustments for the car. I do like that the car responds to all the adjustments so far. If you make a change you can feel it. Still no major problems and the car is holding up well.

Guess the track is closed now until the worlds, do you have a setup sheet you could send me that you will be starting with at the worlds and what adjustment you might make as the traction comes up during the week.
Thanks

Give me a couple of days to go through my notes and I will get you something. I also need to get an actual set-up sheet from Capricorn to be able to fill it out.

Sounds good DJ, I hope to start building the car next Friday.
You said the track got slower on the second day, what was the temp difference the two days?

Not sure about specifics, but I heard about 5 or more degrees in the shade where the pits are, it felt like night and day in the sun. That sun was pretty hot. The track was about 3 to 4 tenths off from the day before. I was driving my real car today and it said the temp was 92 outside and it felt about the same as yesterday give or take. Here is Miami Florida we are going to start seeing some hot days. I can say that on Tuesday I went through 3 sets of tires. Wednesday I brought 4 sets thinking it would be plenty and I ran out. I would put a new set on and by the 3rd or 4th tank they were gone. And I was rotating them after about 2 tanks.
