Heh Rich (lol) funny pic of u kicking back the barrier.....whats the saying, "Thats what 5th scales do", lol !
I agree fellow RC Universers, we had a blast Sat. All u other 5th scalers need to come down to FBF and run with us
And FYI, 4 to 5 5th scales on the track is a go. I really dont understand ppl saying that the track is too small for 5th scales. There was 2 5th scales on the track and there was plenty of space for more ! ! ! ! !

Yeah i know i get the same here..especially when i finally get to work on the car.
Changed front shock oil today to 45 its what i had.The oil that came out was really thick
110wt i think.too thick,not enough bite up front.Will change the rear too when i have
time to 60wt.rc

You want either equal or heavier in the front... Heavier in the rear than the front will cause the car to oversteer...
