Cheers, Mark.
I don't think there are any major updates to the car. I just saw a new one last week and the only thing changed was the fuel tank lid, which I hear people are having problems with. It's the same lid as the Evolva 2005's.

Well after 4 days of running at Crystal Park I definately enjoyed the nitro experience. I'll be running some of the local races down here, and definately the nationals since they are so close. The RRR is definately dialed.

Hello Randy, a few of us from Maryland are planning on coming out west to the Pre-Nats race and the Nats of course, so if you don't mind would you please share your set up for the RRR for Crystal Park, thank you in advance.

I used the stock WC setup, laid the rear shocks 1 hole from the bottom on the rear tower, took out the 2mm shims on the hub carriers, 2.5mm bump steer washers on the knuckles, stood the front shocks up on the tower. 1.5 front camber, 4.5 rear, and 2.5 toe-in.

Randy,

I was with Danny breaking in one of your engines on Thursday. Your car was just starting to breathe before it got dark. I think that motor has great potential. I was very impressed with Chris's car. His car seemed strong throughout the entire powerband. Anyway, all of your cars looked dialed and hope to see you guys again.

Late,
Dave

The engine I was running on Tues and Wed was already broken in and was super fast all around the track. Even on Friday when the new engine had some fuel through it, it started to get some real speed.

What up BK, I'll be ready for the next test session whenever it comes around, I'm sure Numan will want to hit the track again, his car was dialed the last couple days.
