So many colors, only one car. Can you mix up the graphite, kinda like a pattern with two or more colors?

Thanks for the feeedback TimXLB

Your instructions are also verry helpful, now lets see if I can do this without trashing the car

Thanks again.

BTW when you say it changes the ackerman a little, is that a good change or a bad change, In South Africa we don't race on carpet

Jason
Thats a good looking car, I love the gold, now how many do I want

SA_Racer:

As for the Ackerman change it is a good one for foam carpet racing. it actually will smooth out the steering. you will be able ro turn down the steering speed of your servo. we have slowed ours down to around 65% without any lost of steering. (we run either the JR 4850 or the KO 2143 sevros). since we went to this mod Mini (my son) has pivked up enough time throught the infeild to run and pas the current Nats stock sedan winner.
when installed you will feel a differance in steering mostly at turn in and just past the apex of most corners.

if you have any questions please e mail me at [email protected]

Thanks

Default MB Racer?

Are you running the La Mirada Race this weekend with Charlie and the boyz.

You know Howard and Oliver are running the Demon2 Chassis, now that I have my BMI, we should team up to spank those boyz.

I'll give you a call hope the trip with the family was nice.!

Yeah Ray you ever get down South much? Man baking doesn't cover it... 93 with 90%+ humidity here in Bama. Whew! I think Eric Anderson summed it up best .....it feels like sitting in a bathtub in the middle of hell,LOL If you're near Birmingham holla, we run asphalt "using" foams.
