did you see that car run? seems to me it would handle horribly

how can that possibly work he has the shock pistons backwards and the weight of the oil lighter on the 2 hole piston than on the 1 hole piston

how can you go from the stock setting to that

CRAZY

Best and cheapest tweak station for chassis: A piece of glass or a broken mirror, just cut straight and polish the edges to not be hurted when using it.

I haven't tried foams on this setup but I was competetive in the Mod/foam class against the oneway equipped cars .

I will be running my brand new 2nd MTX-3 in Mod this coming Sunday. The starting setup will be stock but with stiffer springs front and rear plus a front diff.

Sorry, I dont have a pic of our track but some sat it looks like a medium size parking lot electric track.

I have got a quick question.

On my car, the rear wheels are wiggling. I have checked the uprights and they are not loose so it is not there. It seems that the axle that goes through the bearings is where I am getting the play. Any suggestions on how to solve this? The only thing I have not done is replace the bearings, but I did swap the fromts to the rear and it did the same thing. I even put a set of universals in the rear and that did not help either. This is with the plastic hex adapters or the aluminum ones I got from Rdlogics.
