Oh there are rules to the cup. Like you have to run a x speed, no turbo of any kind, rubber tires, have to have a stock car theme (I cannot run my trooper car) specific batteries, ,mini Z ESC, and a few more but these are the major ones.

Here is my feedback. You CANNOT get out of the B main if your car traction rolls!! Believe me I know. But after today, I think my problem has been fixed. Also, the Green CP batteries need to be cycled at least 10 times before they will hold enough charge for a heat. I also think today I have gotten them so I can use them. I'll let ya'll know after the race tomorrow night if I an right on these two things.

I am hopeing on the super speedway I stop the traction rolling. Good job to both of you. Phil, you are the points leader right now and there are 4 of us tied for 2nd. What a race format!! Tonight I took my diff apart and cleaned it, I also put the stock syspension plates back on and put a stiffer (actually 2) spring on the rear damper. After all this, I am hopeing that I have fixed the traction rolling. I cannot believe that I won the B main but I just cannot keep up with you Phil with the thought of a roll in the back of my mind. Once I fix that, I promise I will give you, Jamie and the current winner Dave a run for their money. Don't want to slight anyone. EVERYONE has a good chance on any given monday!!

I am hopeing I can make it on Monday!!! I am looking forward to running on the big track. I think this will make a big difference. Too bad he has to do it on a holiday Monday . Lets all hope it rains on Monday!!

Phil, Got my Indi and started last night to condition my batteries. Tonight I will try to match some batteries with the voltage whil under load. So far I really like it. Also, don't forget my numbers. I can't wait to see Eric's face when I put this car on the track to race it! Billy has threatend that I will be a target. If so, that will work in my favor. Everyone will be trying to hit me instead of getting around the track the fastest!!

paul.. as far as the traction rolling i had that problem monday night too. I changed my set up. I went with harder fronts 35, softer ft springs.In the back i rebulit the shock. The rubber grommet inside the oil shock was binding up the shaft so o took it out. Now the rear suspntion works even better,real soft. That took care of the traction rolling. I can almost slide through turns i cant roll no matter what. I think the problem is that the oval track is geting grippyer from all the use. I used the same set up for weeks then it just started to roll like yours.

you went with a softer back?? hum,, I changed the spring (actually have 2 on it now) for the damper and put the stock (with the CP CUp kit) suspension plates. nice and firm!! Unfortunetly I won't be able to test it until I get there on Monday (keeping fingers crossed) If it dosn't do better, at least I can run with my backup and test it inbeween the heats. Everything is firm so I can see what happens. PS please don't forget me numbers.

Thanks
