Thanks, the car was good all weekend. kept trying things to learn as much as possible for the Worlds. Here is a pic you will like. Look at Kenny Ives, MR . Second Place. Both of them where making fun of me and made me try to sit up taller and I was laughing. Picture looks funny, me next to both of those guys. LOL!

Can't seem to access the photos, the url redirects to my own facebook page.
Maybe upload them to a photobucket or picasa account?

Would be great to have a build report in this thread.

I've written some manuals regarding the shocks, clutch and general tips.

In the future all of this will be posted and updated regularly on dsmotorsport.nl but the development of the site is taking a bit longer then expected (a lot of new projects) so I will post them here in the meantime.

Shocks:

www.dsmotorsport.nl/Shock%20building%20guide.pdf

Clutch, the manual is written for the 1/10 clutch but should work for the 1/8 clutch as well. Only use the spring pre-tension and gap settings for the 1/8 clutch

Tips:

Dario Balestri's C801:






Nice front wire type ARB


Dario is currently in P2 after two rounds of qualifying, despite one slower fuel stop. I think we can call this a great debut for a brand new car, and a company's first 1/8.

And P3 it is for Dario and the C801!.

First 1/8 Capricorn has made, and a car which has only been released one month ago and already a direct qualifier for a worlds main final.
