Culture shock!!! You were with Matty and Josh at the Worlds!!!

Yes I suppose Matty and Josh could be taken as culture shocks themselves. But that is sorta what we are like on this side of the world.
Beer staling crazy guy, I had nearly forgotten about him. I did just watch the DVD from the worlds yesterday so that bought back a flood of memories.

A+ on the research.

HI Tony and Lynn-hows everything in FLA? Keep up the great work Lynn. I hope you still have time to d my bodies for this fall


I have one of your bodies saved from 2 years ago that I'd like you to redo-well its easy-its in my avatar!!! I'll send it when it time for my shells to be sprayed.

Jason-I think theres some potential in making a world class high bite car out of both the Yokomo BD and the Yokomo LCG conversion. Both have great engineering and materials, they just need some wieght moved arounf and a super stiff chassis. And of course-I snooped around and I think theres some interest out there for them.

thanks guys,
jason
What's next on the agenda?

ray,
im one step ahead of ya buddy.i have one at the shop courtesy of billy sydor.he sent me a kit that he wants me do do a GOLD!!! kit for im sure he will be saying something about that when he sees this post i will be getting into the yokomo kits real soon .after seeing the quality of the car,i am very interested.i see this car going somewhere.i will also be looking at the BD for a possibility too.i will keep you posted.

RCKnight,
MOTOR MOUNT!!!!!
now that i see the interest is there,i can make the 1 part of the car that bothered me the most.its a starting point.if i make everything that i dont like about the car,it may be completely changed by the time im done

i figure i will finish what i started on the AE kits but after the 12L4 and TC4,that will be it for my support for that company.any tc5 or 12l5 kits or what ever they call it,someone else can deal with the ungrateful attitudes of that company.
Did you say motor mount? I'll get me two on that design change alone. The only other things that would get me really jumping would be;

-Move the servo in further so you can make a chassis norrower.
-Aluminum or delrin spacers that replace the inner chamber link like the FT version. Mod the upper deck.
-3mm chassis & 2.5 upper deck in satin black...oh yes.
-Cf shock towers

You got to make those shock towers, man! No one else can get it right.

Jason:

Hi,

Did the package show up???? I'll try to call you later today as I have some things I need to discuss with you.

Ray:

Hi,

answer your cell. it's the only other number I have to get a hold of you.

Lynn:

Hi,

great looking body. seens like your getting better all the time. I might have to get Mini to pick a paint scheme and send you some ideas of what he wants and turn you loose.

RcKnight:

Hi.

just a quick question. don't you like the "wings" on the TC4 top deck????. I never had a problem with during testing. snd if I had a TC4 I would be running the B.M.I. chassis on it just because of the top deck setup (along with all the other features). not trying to cause any trouble, just asking.

and lastly

HAPPY 4TH of JULY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RCKnight,
i did move the servo as far as i can go with it before running into problems.i am going to be making fully nested aluminum nut plates for the camber links that will fit all existing kits.i dont want bulky,heavy camberlink mounts like on the FT TC4 because the weight is placed very high and it will be very heavy.this will be just as strong but half the weight.i will post pics when they are finished because it is hard to explain what i am going to do with them.motor mount is going to be made and will be made to fit my existing kit.

Jason,

The ultimate shaft car conversion from BM-I think would use the TC3 diff and crown gear as a complete assembly as the drivetrain. Doent matter if its a Tamiya EvoIV, Yokomo SD or a TC4 or a Barracuda-just as long as whats spinnng the CVD's are TC3 gears.

Just my opinion. I see it every week at our track-nothing can beat a well sorted TC3. Sure-its driver and set-up-but its also that crazy drivetrain!!
