Maybe Sunday week, you race each fortnight isn't it.
We do race every 2nd and 4th Sunday... except the next one (Bathurst ). There isn't an official race day but there may be people going there to practice, maybe not.

Keep a tab on things here http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...threadid=23427 .

I have done the mod, when i hold it i can feel it change and i can hear it change now. I couldnt before because i was racing in a lot next to a main road. I love the extra speed. What size pinion gears and spur gear do you you guys use on your car?

Im thinking about getting 23 and 26 pinion gears for some drags with mates, we normally do this at a 2 kay long lot so top speed is a must. What do u think?

I think you better hope your radio can transmit 2k's... also you dont want to be running at top speed to long otherwise you risk the conrod breaking..

We do it with us in a car behind the cars and we only run at top speed for a max of 30 sec because we know of the damage that can be done. What do you guys think about the 3d racing carbon fibre top deck?

Got a pic of the 3racing deck ?
You'll probably find the alluminium pulleys weigh more too...

Unless you quite literally have money to waste then don't even consider them!

You won't notice any performance increase... if there is any that is !

Look schmook ! Sure they might look 'pretty cool' but honestly... how much do you see of them? They're hidden by the belts ! Spend your money on something better like a dirty magazine or something !
