Oh yeah huh! That's rediculous! Your car practically drove to Vegas and back on Sunday. Can you post your setup?

"Man this car has a bad push !"

Well, it was pushing because it was not running with JACO Tires...
it had JACO Plastic RIMS !!
I drove the car, and it wasn't pushing
Where can I get those JACO Plastic RIMS??

Yeah, tell me about the car being a TANK! Our cars went through 80 minutes of racing each.
Peter, I think your car was the most dialed car on Sunday. You were running an OS yet your lap time was as fast as Chris. It just looked great.

Ron, thanks again for the turnbuckle rod. I think I fund the Ti ones and I will give it back when I return in December. What roll center did you finally decide to use for the main?

Anyone tried the Kawahara tires? I ran a set yesterday and they work great.

There is a chart on the setup sheet that came with the kit. I just allow 2mm of difference between front and rear and it seems to work fine.

I've been using Zacs for the past year, you're right, they work great. Were you on the ZB or Z rims?

good advice jeff. i just got done setting my car up--- and it did not go to well. i am getting a lot of binding on the front and back end. i was told not to do the drilling out--- that after a run or two they would get worn in and the binding would go away. i hope--- i had a hell of a time trying to get this car set up. hope all is well.

You shouldn't worry too much about the binding. It's not as bis a deal as electrics. Just give it time to free up. I actually prefer the car to be a little tight so that it doesn't develop a serious amount of slop over time.

thanks. that is what my hobby shop told me. i was driving the mtx-3. i do not know if you know about this or someone might, but chaning the droop is much different in the rrr. in the mtx-3 in the front, i first set the left side with the set screw, then i set the right side with the plastic piece that swivels and that was pretty much it. with this one, they have the plastic piece that swivels on both arms, plus set screws on both arms. any advice? thanks.
