Now after messing around with you the other day my truck is horrible, I made some huge changes last night, basicly applied some of the set up thats on my buggy to the truck, weight placement, wheel base ETC.... Also are you running a spacer on the rear axles??
Yeah. Just the stock blue one between the hub and the wheel lock.why what are you running there

Yes i have, but most of the setups don't call for it. So im gonna give it a try im sure it'll over rotate seeing it's making the rear end a little more narrow. I made that same adjustment on my lazer (Per Brandon) and it rotates like crazy

What time do you guys open Wednesday? Pete and I are heading down for some 2wd mod buggy action.

Also, is the layout the same as the Grand Prix?

Official opening time is 5, but there are usually a few there earlier.

Layout is the same.

Simple just place the blue spacer on the actual cvd and slide it into the hub....But i musta ran about 150 or more laps tonight on three fully charged batteries, The truck felt good but it tends to squat under power in the turn a lil too hard for me so im gonna have to play with the shock oils other than that 15.2's all night...

Larry the actual reason for that was that I ran a 2mm longer arm(midarm). So I had to put the spacer on the inside. Those axle I just gave you where supposed to work with longer arm but there was to much dogbone plunge. It would bind up the suspension on compression. So the stock axles worked fine with the spacer on the inside. That's the only reason...........

Must be part of that Noob thing.

Probably something just the original rb5 owners know. cause most of us started with the narrow car and did the conversion. then if you did that you had the irritating thing of buying arms and only having one that you could use.

Man I need to hit the track. It hasn't even been a week and I feel like I am going through withdraw. Think its cause I know I cant go for at least two more weeks.

Actually Larry, I am clearing out a lot of my stuff from that closet. Work is not looking good and announced outsoucing. So anything I take out of the closet is going up for sale.

Anyways didn't you buy a sc-r to join in the sc fun? Believe you are the one that called me out like 2 months ago.

As for the shades I only wear them during the summer. They have my prescription in them and I can actually see better with them then my regular glasses.

Anyways I will see you in two weeks.

Seriously Larry. You are looking good with that buggy though. 30 laps last Wed.
