The demons being gone is a good thing. Now we need to address the issue of the pups on the porch that cant run with the big dogs. I think a few people need to step up on the porch and see how fast the pups are............. Everyone holds mod racing so high on the pedistal ................. I just giggle when we run stock and are only .9 of a second off the lap times of the top mod drivers. Our $26.00 27 turns versus the $90.00 10 single. I want to see everyone run stock one day and see were we end up.

OOOOOOOOOO I think I struck a soar spot. I seem to remember you struggling in mod a few weeks ago. It goes both ways. Its all good. I was just trash talkin' with Joe B. I tell you what, I will run both classes this weekend, and you guys do too, and we will see where we end up.
Nothing like a little friendly rivalry to make everyone faster. Although, I will have to stock up on control arms and c-hubs if I am going to be running with you guys!!!!!

Default split cell chassis

Quote:
I think youll be very busy putting out the split chassis after this weekend!! The cars were awsome!! Thanks for a great chassis!!!
Hey I am not sure if this weekend racing was on carpet or not but does this split cell chassis work good on asfault with rubber tires or is it only good on carpet?

I just got a email ststing that it is good on carpet and not asfault and I just wanted to be sure that eaveryone agrees.

and obveously all of you like the 350 but do you like the split equily or not?

thanks Mike

No sore spot here ...................... I have run 19 turn recently and finished 2nd to croy , but the only mod i have run was the 12th scale tc wich i won both times we ran it. My 10th scale has never seen a mod motor. I Just listen to the mod cars and cringe at the sounds they produce at the 2 min. mark. The wear and tear to run less than a second a lap faster just doesnt do anything for me. I definatly dont have a problem with showing you how to go fast with a stock motor though!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is the 350 chassis just for the FK XRay? I still have the XRay T1 FOC and would like to upgrade to the BMI chassis. Which chassis would I get?

im actually running the 350 chassis with the foc bulk heads and changed to the short arms .. the car drives excellant and also im running a spool .. So you can run the car with the 350 chassis ..

Thanks for the fast response. This has probably been asked before, but what parts do I need to convert to the short arms?

Hey Guys,

I LIED!!! The fastest three laps in the Mains were set by BMI cars, but not by whom I thought. Eli and Eric did run 14.715,but back in the C-Main-Jim herrmann running a Xray BMI ripped a 14.684-had a HUGE lead and on the last lap got peeled, body tucked and stepped on and still finished 4th on a fast 20 5:16.

So sorry EA and Eli-but Herrmann got us all!!

Ray

Jim Hermann's finish in that race was just heartbreaking to watch.

im bad on part names .. but youll need the hindge pin holders and the short arms .. make sure you mount them on the outside of the bulk heads then set up your steering and front and rear camber and your set ..
