Yeh but Tommy dumps batteries quicker than anyone else I know. At least he did when he raced electrics! How he still manages to do that in gas, I don't know...

BTW Tommy, where do you race gas most of the time? Might see you again some time...

give more front droop since you need to have smaller front tire size.

Sorry Gav, we cant let Sam run around the track for an extra 15mins after the final. It will disrupt the trophy presentation.

Hey guys, I just got my kit and it was running very well with the Lola body. However, when I switched to the Stratus 2.0, I was getting a whole lot of push in the front. I got very little steering coming out of the straights. Everything is box stock setup with the kit 37 shore tires. I'm not sure if alot has to do with the older style Stratus or my setup. It seems if I'm not getting enough downforce in the front. Front sway is flat. BTW, I'm liking this car alot. I just made the switch from the V-One and this car is very promising.

adjust your front sway a bit stiffer, around 30'. this will improve your initial steering response. reduce front droop will also help to improve steering.

Of course there is a lot of difference between the LOLA and the Touring Car shell. Manti has given you the answers ...
