And its not that your advise wasnt sound, it that I cant tell you how many times I have listen to a person early in my RC career and ran out and bought what they said to do, only to find out it was the wrong thing to buy. Than i had to rebuy the right crap.
Hey,if I were the type to say buy this or buy that without there being real reason to,Hell,I would say forget the FK and buy a Schumacher!The reason I got the BMI chassis for the Fk when I had it was because I knew what it was suppose to accomplish and many reputable drivers were using the chassis with great success. But as you know I never ran the car as I stuck with my Schumacher and thats history.Anyways,try both if you want to. Jason will probably make you the chassis you want for a premium. I drove Terry's car Yesterday.Awsome. Very good steering and stability.

Bill-go here for results

Look at lap times-not laps run as Jlap screwed up all night and gae a ghost first lap to many drivers. This was pretty funny as it called out Wayne Gerber is on pace for 1180 laps in 8 minutes....hahaha!

Also-this is one of the most technical layouts and shortest straights weve evere used. Usually the straight alone is 20' longer and theres not so many 180's.

8's to 9's per lap (stock), which is 34 laps in 5 mins. A front
diff is too slow on our track, Not enough forward bite.

What kind of times are you guys getting at the "Gate"?
Also been play'n with the new Roar stock motor,(Which I
heard is the handout) It has potential.

Definitely- I'll be up there for some practice with my "diff" car before I head off to the "Halloween Classic". And I'll try to bring
some others with me too. I heard some Topeka boys were wanting to come up too.

We've started Sunday sedan racing again and we usually finish up by 5:30 or so. I'd love to run against you guys more often. Just PM me if you plan on making the trip anytime soon.
What time do you usually start?

We are also running that Enduro on Sunday the 12th of September. You can read more about that HERE. It would be nice to see you guys show up for that one. Unless you can put a good team together, my team has the stock touring class locked up.
I have a R/C boat race that weekend. Don't think I can make that
one. And good luck....

BSydor... You have PM... And drop me a warning PM when You decide to head to Omaha. I'll have to talk the "Boss" into letting me run Sunday when you and the crew head this way. I'm sticking to Wednesday racing until later this fall unless there is a big event or something on a Sunday.

Hey Jason,

Could you post something like a list of changes you have made with this new L4 chassis? Also, be sure to tell everything that is included.

Thanks,
Kevin
