KL is Kuala Lumpur Malasya if I am correct. It is a very different culture there. I got to go there in July during my deployment with the Navy. I got to go up to the bridge in the Petronas Towers where the scene from Entrapment was filmed. It is a very impressive structure. Good times!

Yeah, but with 5000 sailors from the carrier I serve on, there was mostly a bunchh of hookers there. I got some good deals on bootleg DVD's in chinatown though. 2 bucks each!

Nah, Victoria Australia.

I had a ball in Malaysia. Was over there for 3 months with Army. Got down to Singapore and got wasted in the Terra Club... You guys have a great setup there.

really cool paint job by the way (i signed up to your forum so i can see the blown up pic!).
Jo, yes its the Stratus, I was trying to show how the whell wells lined up with the tyres in that picture (could have done a better job with the picture though). I think the Mazda will need the same as Scott says ... and even more trimming on the foam bumper.

Paint job was a cheat ... XXXMain stickers ...

Thanks for joining the site, hope you saw the 4 build articles I wrote.

Next is the test on the track and then I'll post a video of it.

I have a question it may be bumb but bare with me with the over drive that is built in the car when you put the split in the tire then you get 1to1 why not have the ratio 1to1 so we can run the same size tire.

Running a smaller front helps to even out tire wear, and can be used to tune the steering of the car.

engine, pipe, radiogear, starterbox, tires, body, glow starter, fuel, and servo horns.

Seriously there are not that many option parts available yet. Although I dont think there is one I havnt got yet other than the shooter CF parts.

Yes they do, some differences are huge, some are small.

What you can and cannot use depends on what racing rules that you are under. Open rules mean anything goes and VDS Lolas give the best downforce with the best speed.

If you are stuck with sedan shells (ROAR, EFRA, IFMAR etc) then you need to test because different tracks call for different shells for best performance. The best way is to watch what the fastest guys are using. These days it seems that the Mazda 6 is a universally popular one.
