Thanks for helping me out, I know alot of people were interested in what I was running as I fielded a few questions about my setup/equipment,etc.

Thanks again for inviting me to join your team.

Greg Amendola

PS> Now it's time to prepare for the Novak Touring Car Champs in January.
Great job Greg! Glad the fresh cells worked out for you. I know there were some heavy hitters at that race so good to hear you held your own. Email me more details about the race and your finishes along with a podium photo (if available) so I can post them on our website.

The shock mounting holes are lower but don't change the shock angle/geometry from the stock tower. I'll try and get a pic posted asap, I've been having problems with my camera. You won't have to shave the tower but you probably will still need to shave the caps on the shocks...

Lino, here is the link to the race results. There are a few pics, but they are a bit fuzzy. There may be some others posted shortly, I'll let you know...

Good deal Greg... I forgot to mention I sent you a roar stock instead of a monster. I remember you saying you wanted it for 12th and this last batch of roar stocks really lend themselves to be great 12th motors. You should be happy with it...

Well, we had our Region 9 regional race this last weekend. I was in incontentions for 3rd place but I made a drving error that caused my batteries to slide to the front and that through the car completely out of sync.I ended up getting 5th. Sunday I had numerous of problems, Servo case broke on me, batteries sliding forward aagain, and a cold front came in and the tracion got worse. I ended up in the same position as saturday, 5th place again. A fellow racer that mentioned he had been talking to you by the name of Tim Cop from the Dallas area took both the stock and mod 12th scale races. However the information you gave me came in handy and when the batteries did not slide forward it handled great.
Lino, any chance that I can have a chassis specifically made for my 12th scale using the same setup as the hyperform, but make the battery slots only as long as the batteries, and what will the cost be for it?

Hey Carlos, I sent those stickers to you recently via snail mail. You probably haven't received them yet but they are on the way.

As far as custom chassis, I get that question a lot and no we don't. I design our chassis and then sub contract the cutting to a local machinist. I guess we could but the cost for a one off would be really high. I'm guessing material and labor would be in the neighborhood of 500-750. I doubt my machinist would be interested in doing it anyway. The money isn't really in the prototype end of it but instead when you start banging them out in large quantities.

Greg, I checked out the results, very impressive. You spanked them man... Am I correct that those stock truck runs would have landed you in the upper half of the mod truck finals?

Oh, it is!!!
I just would like for my batteries to just not move on me from one little tap on the wall. Hell I had the Sphere/Neo in it and it took flight and slamed into the wall. I was amazed that nothing broke at all.

If you're not scared to drill a few holes in the chassis, you can mod it very easily to accept the IRS battery stops that are intended for the Rug Rat. Future versions will have this mod already done. I slam stuff pretty hard, they don't move on me that easily. I run the cells pretty far forward to begin with though...

Yeah, my stock truck is way fast, your motor has been outstanding and like I said, I put in the new 3800s, and pulled consistant lap times at -.2 seconds faster per lap instantly.

If I had simply just ran stock in the mod qualifiers, I would have made the A, and if I made the A, based on the results, I would have likely beat some factory sponsored guys running mod. Not bad for an on-road guy
