36.5lb corrally springs with 2 holes open and xray 30wt, all the way out on the tower, and the middle low roll center on the tower and 4.5 degrees of caster.

Rear:
24 lb spring 2 holes open with xray 30w mounted on the 3rd hole in on the BMI tower (its inbetween on the regular tower, but its the standard position) and on the inside of the rear arm (not the regular position). and the shortest and lowest link possible with 2mm of shims on the hub.

I ran middle roll centers all around, parma lightweight alfa body, parma cyan and magenta tires and a high 28 roll out and F brushes. And i ran a BMI 350 chassis. I did what ed told me basically, lol. Since every change he suggested made the car better. We are going to be trying out some other stuff before the novak race that might work even better.

Car was really dialed and was extremely efficent through the corners, i had very little tire dust on my body (argueably less than larry's, lol). And you could hit anything and everything including the pace car without tweaking or breaking the car, which was a plus compared to the RDX or 007.
We should of weighed, it, but needless to say the FK04 is still definatley good on high bite. Too bad that seems to be harder to find latley.

Default My response from the conversation in the 12th scale forum...

The moderator requested that this discussion/debate did not continue in the 12th scale forum. I shall continue here:

your facts straight before making inaccurate statements about my actions....
What you posted was not related to my business but a business of someone who I consider a friend. To further add insult to injury you are a fellow small business owner and you should know that saying negative things about one of your direct competitors is a very poor marketing tactic. I don't feel that I have made any statements that are not accurate as all I have stated is how I feel about your actions here and in the Speedmerchant thread. It wasn't appropriate, period.

There's no probably about it, is there some confusion here?

You would have thought that lesson would have been learned back when you did it in the Speedmerchant thread.

As a small business owner you might not be able to please everyone, I know it's not easy. What you can do is try not to offend anyone, all in all that's pretty basic.

Timmy is 12th scale racer. Like it or not it's people like him who are your customer base (and mine) and "calling him out" and poking at him on a public forum would fall back in line with not offending people. You want to demand others behave on this forum but you don't think you should have to.
