BTW, went to Kenon to practice again today, but they were closed... That's a @#$% hike from Redondo. I wanted to swing by MPT, I don't know where you are? I've been practicing my balls off trying to get ready for the Atomic race. Slowly but surely, the dust is coming off. :D

Huge turn out this past weekend @ MPT Mini Z Track this past weekend
i set fast time early sat. morning @9.4 sec using my PNWC Pan Car w/ a Anima motor w/ silver brushes..... felt pretty fast.....and then....lucas showed us all how to drive lowering the lap record ......9.10sec w/ a stock class car......
but not to be out done , i had to go out there and reclaim the lap record
dropping it to 8.84sec
NML showed up with his new 08 LIGHTNING SS..... :eek:
I installed it w/ a 10 tooth pinion using intellect 750mah aaa's
checked it on my speed checker.....41 kmh......same as my anima mtr.....
then i took it out on track.....best i could do in 10 min. of running....9.04...
THATS BECAUSE IT WAS WICKED OUT SIDEWAYS COMING OUT OF EVERY CORNER :eek:
NML gave ma a 12 tooth pinion....53kmh on the speed checker :eek: :eek: :D
SO FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! droped back in to the 8's....new track record...8.76sec...still wickin the rear around still....inconsistent...
i made some rear susp adjustments to get some rear grip back .. that brought consistent high 8's.....8.8...8.9......8.7..... so happy....
i was convinced that w/ my new found grip i could go even faster....so i installed an 11 tooth pinion which brought the top speed down to 48 kmh....
BAM.........8.552....
08 NML LIGHTNING SS......MPT PANCAR........INTELLECT 750MAH.....

Hey Grant,

When's the next GTG? I finaly got my pan to settle down. At best I can do high 8's and low 9's at the kenon track, but with more practice I think I can stay out of your way. :cool:

Hey TJ, a lot of us here run Kyosho 20s in the back and PN fronts (10, 15, 20). Last Sunday at MPT, I was running PN 8 radials in the back and PN 10 in the front on my stock car. I was able to throw my car into corners without spinning out but it does traction roll sometimes.

Lucas, saw you yesterday and forgot to ask you what the secret was :(
