O.K. thanks.I had a little more than half of your set up on my car.I'll write this down and follow up.Your right those 104s where fast.I was battling with Kalvin and Vince for second place in the "B" until I couldn't hold them off any more with the HPI tires.I had the advantage on them at the end of the short straight going into that series of tight turns but the rest of the track was all them.I ran a 35 pinion with the thought of too much torque and excess push if I geared down.I'll try it next time.I'm also gonna keep my 104 in the coral and continue to work with it.F1 rocks!
