Should make it to this race. Dragged my mini 96 with me to wva to get a little practice. Finally fixed one of my MR03's. Easiest replacement of the 4th gear in the servo yet. Might be trying a different body for the box stock race.

Actually I'm probably switching to another LM body since the rules are more relaxed then when we first started this. Got a Mercedes sauber C9 white body just sitting around doing nothing and I'm afraid of smashing up my orange Mazda 787 body.

I've been looking for updated rules so I can understand what we can or cannot do. Does it exist or can you give me a summary?

I'm not sure. It started out in the DC club as kyosho World Cup box stock rules, then the rules loosen up to what remnant is doing with their box stock rules. I know you can use your tires, bearings, T-plate and wheels of choice. And I think your allowed to use either the stock kyosho motor or PN 70 turn but I really don't know. All I know is that it went from kyosho box stock to somewhat stock. All I did to my car is put bearings and tires on it. Everything else is box stock.

i posted the rules on the advertising banner that hangs at hobby works

the only options permitted that deviate from box stock are the following:
-allows ball bearings.
-allows non kyosho h/t plate.
-allows non kyosho rubber tires.
-allows non kyosho plastic wheels. wheels must be of same offset/width (wide/narrow) as autoscale used. it would be preferred if stock wheels are used however these are increasingly difficult to purchase replacements.

remnant does this and more:
-use of 70t motor
-use of option springs

i got michael's car, the stock tires feel like a good match for his skill level so i tried to true them flat and they almost melted. still need to wipe his 5ur clean so we can tune it to his car.

I noticed that stock tires don't seem to perform as good as the same degree radial tires. Do you think that it is due to the tires not being flat?

not sure. the trued portion is very tacky now. maybe they will break in or just need to be changed out. i've got tires for the car but wanted to try something ever so slightly harder. less wrecking with oversteer than over and he's going to be doing a lot of that. it's been some time since he's run on a track or anywhere besides the driveway.

anyone have 8 NiMh AA's that still hold a charge? the cells in his tx dump in less than a day. they have to be 6 years old at least.

is it bad to want to keep his car the yellow 599xx is a great looking car. almost as nice as white or the white 458. too bad the white or yellow didn't come numbered like the red and black.

If Ian brings his daughter too, we can hold a kids' race.

Thanks guys, Molly had a blast. Should have some less temperamental stock chassis on the way for next time (big thanks for the heads-up on that, K).
