Update car is great and gets better and better each time out. Yesterday at Team Nitro RC Raceway in Portage IN, I ran a best of 17.15, and a 16.9 isn't out of the question. 1/10 TC's were running mid to low 16's. Im so happy with this car! A gallon on it now, and no issues. Will be a busy month of racing!

Prairieland Shootout this weekend
Midwest Series Portage, IN 14-15
Byrons end of the month!

Heres a pic more to come and some video.

Default Midwest Series Portage IN Report!

The Tekno GTN48 make it to the winners circle again! It keeps getting better and better. Took 2nd place with a 90sec lap due to running out of fuel and a flameout on restart. Congrats to Mike Lyday on his 1st place win! And Jim Saulinskas for 3rd! Andy Liu had it won till he ran into mechanical issues. See everyone at Byrons!

Could you post your shock setup; springs, oils, pistons, locations, and swaybars? Also, if you can, can you give me the overall length of the Serpent springs? Thanks!
