If you can wait a few weeks, I'm working on a new one. Not that Eric's not good, I just wanted something easier to use. I also laminated one with the set up sheet on one side and PF Changs tuning guide on the other. I'll have them available to any Mx2 Driver for the cost of shipping when done.

I'll post pictures for all to see.

Had my Mx2 out running some laps yesterday. Warming up for the Mid-Atlantic Carpet Wars that is next weekend. Ran wraps for the 1st time. I did like how they felt. I'm going to do somemore testing next week with them.

If you need anything k_bojar pm me or email me.

I'm going to be racing the Mx2 at the Mid Atlantic Carpet Wars this weekend. Paul Buohl might be racing also. I've heard rumors about Bill Dolch bringing his new car out to play with us also. That would be awesome. It would be great to see a couple Darkside cars in the show this weekend.

I put the Mx2 in the show this weekend at the Mid Atlantic Carpet Wars. I qualified 7th. I was running 4th holding off hard charging 5th place for 5 minutes and got into lap traffic and got taken out and broke the car. Ended up 9th. It was an awesome race. I learn somemore things with the car this weekend.
Next is asphalt. I will be at our indoor asphalt track next weekend.

SWR411 - Nice job!!

As stated before I am working on a new set up sheet for the Mx2 car. I've made my first pass and since it is now in a digital format, fairly easy to change.

Any input as what you want on the sheet?
What should not be there?

Post any thoughts here and I'll check back over the next week, as I want to get this done prior to starting pavement racing with 1/10 pan and gas touring.

Also, I have laminated mine and put tuning sheet on the back for reference. Once they are done, I'll make 12-18 copies and get to Mr. Darkside for "Team Distibution" (still trying to work my way on to the team!!!)

Our local race out in here in paradise went well this weekend. We had 6 1/12th scales show up which has been our biggest turn out yet since I started hosting the race back in Janruary and we were missing 4 regular drivers! So next race will prove to be interesting with a potential 11 cars showing up. I easily put my Mx2 into TQ but due to not timing the traction compound right I ended up with not enough grip in the main to do well and finished 3rd. Not bad considring I am the race director and have very little time to wrench on my car while keeping the race running. There's 2 people now strongly considering picking up a Mx2 after seeing mine run at the races Need more converts!

Hey, Eric, I had my I Force out for it's maiden voyage Sunday. Quite a car. I ran 4 cell 19t in it and ran against the nitro tc's. I won the main by 2 laps. This is on a asphalt parking lot with lots of pollen, the only changes I made from the kit setup was to put wind tunnel long kingpin kit and used the red progressive springs. The car was pretty much dialed once the pollen was out of the groove. I did generate some interest with it, maybe they will get one for themselves. I used a 200mm HPI Saleen S7R body.
Thanks for a great car,
Bob

Boy can I agree with that statement, not that I run the races, but am helping answer questions, setting up heats......and then I normally tune 6-12 motors each day, not counting on my own. No wonder I'm taking 6 weeks off before starting the outside season.
