I am very happy with the way the car jumps and corners. We will be working to gain a little more forward bite to help on tracks that are really slippery like the one last weekend. Watch out when we get to tracks that have med to high traction.............Yee Haaa.......should be fun!!!

There is a nice little track down the street from DC and Curtis and I are planning on hitting it in the next week, once we get caught up with stuff here at the shop.
Sounds like you had a good time Greg..We all know you and Curtis will be on top soon...

738's are easy on the comm, 3-4 runs in between rebuilds no problem.... As for setup start with this:

Brushes: Reedy 738
Springs: Red +/-
Timing: 16-18*
Gearing: 45mm Rollout

Hope this helps.

Curtis, I am in need of some advice and some fast stock motors for TC on carpet with foams. My setups are getting good my driving is better, and my batteries are very good. My stock motors blow chunks. I also have no idea how to make/maintain a good one. I looked are your web site and saw that your were out of stock? Get it, out of stock. Anyway, when might you have some more and what can I do for a strong stock motor?

Did Hodapp ever finish the computer project from last night......LOL Gotta put the ponies down come next weekend. The race will be live audio and video too. We have a mullet challenge that day and the lowest qualifying racer has to wear a mullet for which ever main they end up being in. I don't plan on wearing that thing so I gotta make sure I have some HP'S

Curtis,
I noticed you called.
I will be up for another hour.
Call me

I will wait for your call.




Greg,

I like the X6....
BTW, How stable is it in the air if you enter a jump at an angle?

I ask because of the weight distribution...

Isaac
