Hopefully very soon, I've just got so much on my plate that there isn't enough time to go around. If you have set-up any questions, let me know. Nice to see you doing well with the car!

Actually I've not used a CO27 for 1/12 scale. I've heard that the x-motor works pretty well with "F" brushes and a purple/green spring combo for 1/12th scale.

I am fond of f's with red's...seemed to work ok, not the fastest , but very smooth in the turns (we do turn more then go straight).

Default Good luck to Team Darkside in Cleveland

Good luck to all the racers who will be using the Darkside Mx2 in Cleveland this weekend. The winners circle is just around the bend.

A huge thanks to Mike Haynes for all his help/input/feedback with the car. Without his help the car wouldnt be what it is today. Go get 'em in Cleveland!

To anyone else out there who may be thinking about giving the car a shot, GO FOR IT! I am sure once the results are in from Cleveland they may be hard to get!
