email the shop.. ofcourse it won't be addressed till the shop reopens but mini-z already imports atomic parts so i'm sure it's just a matter of including the part number in his next order :p

Yeah, but I need to go to a bigger rear offset because of the wide fronts.

I'm tired of chasing him. Any other US sources for someone that wants one yesterday?

Yup! I needed to trim the rear wheel fender. Originally the NSX body was a RM 94mm wheelbase. With the MM motor mount the wheelbase is increased to 98mm, so slight body modifications to fit it. I love the handling of the NSX. I'm just trying to find the older versions (i.e. Mugen, Castrol, or the Loctite), the molding seems to be a little thicker than the new NSX bodies.

I find that the 2003 NSX's(Mobil,Takata & G-Zox) to be the thickest and most durable.

The two tracks I race and practice on is a RCP track and the track at Club 28, which are gray foam shop mats with barriers.

Yeah, I'm really hard on my bodies. I killed my takata and now my mobil1, I ca back the left front back together also with shoe goo. I need to work on my throttle control, I push the car too much were mistakes come easy and the window of correction is small. More or less also my mental game, it's easy to throw me off, just say"Nice line!" and the next couple laps I'll screw up................................Thanks Roger! :) JinDow! :eek:

I did have a nice line, I had a few straight solid laps. Then the zone killah, you RogerSan, came in and got in my head! Next race I'm wearing a mp3 player. :D

How mad was homie when his car took like 4 beatings in a row thus finally braking his H plate just right after he put that new body on. :mad: Felt bad that he took lickin's but he never called it, he just got freight trained.

We racin' Friday?

Yeah, i felt sorry for him also. I had to ask him how his car was after seeing his ride in 2 pieces. Me and John hit him by accident cause we were dicing the whole time and when you go into the sweeper at full speed, its hard to see his car. He should've called out so everyone can watchout for him. Anyways, we are racin cause Leo and Chris Chow will be there. These two guys finished 1st and 2nd at the PN race last year at Rialto.

I think Big_L uses a #2, but he can clarify that when he reads your post.

Now that Atomic released the 94mm motor mount, you can run your favourite 94mm bodies with out dremeling the body...! :cool:

I have one of those new Atomic 94 motor pod MM and it looks like the top plate is too long (98mm). The friction plates are way too forward and it binds up the friction plates. You'll need a 94mm top plate.

Is there any other dampining systum that can be used on a set up such as the one you have? I have an iWaver and once upgraded i would want it to be MM, with the side damping. AND, it would be like your as my body is 90mm or w/e and will need some dermailing etc.!
