Oh yeah. Horizon Hobbies FTW! Gimme some of those styrofoam gliders!

At least Thunder Tiger doesn't have to buy half of the pages in RC Car Action to sell basher cars. I remember when Traxxas made "competition" spec chassis. They looked a lot like the RC10

john's got one and ed's got one too. pm ed. not sure how much he liked it.
I drove Ed's b5m when he first built it and it was really hooked up inside. I think it was 17.5. I like the rear motor though....

I'll be there. Need to work on my SC10. That truck is wobbly like an elephant's c**k.

Not quite sure if that's the reference I would have used. lol

Yes, SC10 = Loose if not constantly tuned.

I saw a new leaf on the track so I flipped it over... oddly it didn't make me feel any different.

I'm not sure that is a valid analogy when discussing vehicle tuning.

Have you added a fourth hole on the rear tower. I found that to help before I switched to the X-Factory chassis. I ran a rear sway-bar too for what it is worth.

I have actually also considered using a rear swaybar. I have one for my B4.1 that I never ended up using. Maybe I'll try that. I was using the stock (non-shaved) U-brace, so I'll try shaving that down first to get less roll mid-corner.

Huhuh...ballstuds....shaved....
