Only drama's i got is the Mugen Steering Arms, as there longer than the standard G4S end cups, but a few mods here and there and its coming together well!!!

Here is some happy snaps once again....

Dude, heres a quick reminder about your new pretty speed shot front end. I think it's called that. Anyway, don't forget to add some JB weld or similar cold weld to the rear cut outs on the aluminum piece. Pics are included. Hint: tape off the top and apply the JB weld to the bottom. This way when you pull off the tape when it's dry, it's nice and clean looking and then on the bottom where you applied the weld, you can use an exacto knife to clean up any excess that might have built up upon application. I didn't do it this way and it shows. So just a heads up bro. By the way it looks VERY SWEET!!! About time that damn pilot got you your stuff! Later bro.

Wow, I sure am glad that I caught my mistake and NO ONE gave me any shit. Thanks for checking your torque wrench dude. My Snap On torque wrench goes to 300 lbs bro. But I must say that 120 ft/lbs out of a little servo would be pretty sweet. I have been doing some research on the Helios bro. Some killa stuff as Frankie would say. Oh yeah, Frankie...dude if you are reading this...my name is spelled like S-E-R-P-E-N-T-D. Did you catch that last "E" in there? Just a heads up bro. Buggy...mmmmmm. I must say I love 1/8 scale buggy. Talk about total brutal power and grunt! No I haven't ordered the TM buggy..yet and I have an insane engine already to go into whatever I do get. Not that I need another buggy, but I sure do want one. The week is still young, yes. Well guys, talk at you soon. Have great evening as I am soon off to work! Later.

Oh dude, I was just givin you a hard time bro. No worries whatsoever! You know me bro, I don't trip on shit other then someone messing with me or my bro's. I can then get pretty defensive. But other then that I am 100% layed back as yourself. Dude, I was meaning to tell you also about your belts missing a few teeth. Dude, you NEED to replace those immediately. You never want to run with missing teeth. My guess is that it happened when you were running in the parking lot breaking in your engine. Always check the pulleys also for small pebbles that can get lodged inbetween the teeth. If you catch them soon enough you can save a belt. These items are super high priority as far as inspection goes after EVERY run. If you ever do loose a front belt durring a race whether it's stripping a lot of the teeth or even all of them, or even having it brake away and fall off, I will have my pit guy remove the side belt and continue the race in 2wd. Just a little tip for a rare but occasional situation. I don't know if this is as much of an issue with the sedans as it is with the 1/8th scale. The .21's have quite a bit more power then the sedans. But just incase. OK guys, I am now off to work I suppose. I really should stay home and work on rc. but then again my work lets me afford my rc. Hmmm, such the battle of decisions. Later!

yeah man, all sweet, on the spell check LOL - i am kool, your kool hell we are all kool!!!

As for the belts, got all my new K-Facotry belts in now, brand new, and all serviced LOL - feels good to have new parts in car, the test day is going to be interesting, i can tell you guys the car feels rather solid now since with the new chasis, speed bulk front and carbon bumper support!!!

i wonder how this will make the car handle, only 5 days to go till prac, and 6 days till race day!!!

got a few things to do till then re-oil diff as the ED trans has new rear end gears, if i cant find 10000 oil for dif whats another option?

besides that, ill post more pics tommorrow, its like 2am here in Adelaide and bed is calling!

Thanks for everyone contributing ideas etc etc - Night Crew
