Whats up Dan, Good job at the Nats. I found out why my car did not move at the begging of the main, I was using a Skyline two speed shaft and the one-way was slipping on the shaft. I will never use anything but the stock shaft, lesson learned

The car would only move if I applied half throttle.

The MWS should be very competitive this year, I do not think I will make the first race in Cincinnati.

Are you sure it is the shaft sounds like the one-way bearing is bad?

The one-way bearing is fine.

New car, first time out with it. The shaft were the bearing rides looks like it has been polished(cheap metal). I put the stock shaft back in the car and no problems, works fine.

Dan, I will try a little butt kisssssing and maybe I can make Cincinnati.

The race report and photos were all posted on SGrid Online, http://www.sgrid.com. Dennis, please email me at ([email protected]) so I can send you your photo.

I have two or three more photos I want to add, but starting on Monday I'll be out of town at the 1/8 off-road pre-worlds in Jakarta. Those photos and reports should start to show up as of March 2.



Jim, it's amazing how a club of five members can put on such a huge event and have everything work as smoothly as it did!

That's not that bad...try some JB Weld.

I saw you after that race and you mentioned that someone jumped the track hit you on the straight while you had it pinned...sorry for your luck.
