I saw where Christian posted on the CORR site that he broke the servo in the Matrix. Yep -- sounds like it was too muddy. What servo are you going to put in the Matrix now?


Big Ed -- what truck are you looking at now?

ED:

I thought that that might be a weak part of the system. Hey we missed you on Saturday! You could have helped us look at the mudd, drink a few and watch Texas and Navy win.

Saturday was a day of seriously hard work. I've never been so tired after watching mud before. Sunday was pretty rough too.

I got the hcr ti steering brace now.
Will see if that holds up.
if not its like $300 for new metal arms that extend the width, I'm not going to put that much in this truck, even though I'm sure it would be bad *****.
I'll just sell it and move on.

ED -- did you think about doubling up the steering arms? Or is there not enough room in there for that?

titanium -- that must have set you back. Have you looked at RPM to see if they have full length arms for the 777T? They make some great aftermarket stuff. I'll bet that it won't be long before someone will make composite full length arms so you don't have to go with the metal arms.

Scott -- any word on the shirts and the cost?

I am here because.....and I know that this will create an "issue" ..... I don't like having to wade thru some of the crap and being inundated with some of the other stuff on their that is not allowed here. That is my reason.

Hey all --- seeing as I am the one that complained about some of the contents of the CORR site -- how about this as an option

We/Christian set up a new thread (?) and we call it General info or something like that and we use it just lke we do this thread at RCU. We could post general stuff and race times etc..... and then y'all can have other threads for what ever kind of info you want to post.

I have posted a similar message on the CORR site and hope that y'all reply on the "WHERE IS EVERYBODY" thread.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I am assuming everyone that's here has moved over to the CORR forums. If not I just wanted to drop everyone a line.

If I can get enough interest. I would like to start up a Mini-Z series. I know that Z's aren't offroad or nitro, but it's pretty cold and it might be fun to bring the racing indoors for a couple of months.

For more info, see this thread on CORR

http://corr.atothosting.com/Bulletin...topic.php?t=37

If anyone is interested, speak up. If I know people are interested, I can push forward with some plans.

it looks like the site is down. Maybe it can't handle the snow.
