Made a couple changes today. First when i bought the big bores last year, i bought the XL's by mistake. With the Crazy Origin caps/revo rod end,i had alot of limiting inside them to make them the correct length (4 inch). It just wasnt right. So i bought some long bigbores and installed them, i think it will be much better.




I also sanded the sidewalls of my Sedonas. Both sides on the fronts, outside on rears. RTR weight is 5.54lbs. Ready to go for our South Fl State comp tomorrow in North Palm Beach

Haven't posted up in a while, figure its about time. Well after embarrassing myself at our last So Fl State comp in North Palm Beach(dead last). I knew i needed to make some changes.
After i had shaved the sidewalls of my Sedonas they became way too soft, i tried adding homemade tuning discs to get the sidewall a little stiffer(failed effort). First thing i did was get some Crawler Innov 5.5 closed cell foams from East Coast RC. Great place to deal with, good prices and fast shipping Anyway i bought softs for the fronts and med for the rear, what a big improvement. Got the sidewall stiffer and is still soft on the tread area





Next thing i did was a new servo. My 7950 was getting a little sloppy where the shaft is that bolts to the servo horn. So i let Richardgarrett56 convince me to buy the brushless FutabaBLS157hv Cant argue with the numbers 513oz at 7.4v





I also ordered a Rowdy Racing berg motor mounted battery tray, should be here soon.
Gonna try these Genisis 450mah 3s 40c lipos. They are a few mm smaller and about 4g lighter, then the gensace 450 25c's i have now.





But i cant do anything untill i get my rear shaft back from Steve at RC AxleMaster. Had a small problem with the long shaft and he is taking care of me


The new Viper II production chassis should be in team members hands soon, that will be good I think there are 5 of us going to ECC with them.

Latest updates, Viper II chassis (still waiting on carbon fiber side panels). Rowdy Racing battery mount, Futaba bls157hv Well we (UGC team drivers) got what will become the production Viper II chassis. Juan and the guys put alot of work into this chassis. We have had two different versions prior to the final one. I dont really have any specs (weight,cost,etc) yet. Im sure C*H*U*D* will release that info soon.




Really like the Rowdy Racing battery mount





This is the lightest ive ever had my berg, i think it will work well

Threw on my spare rovers to see what she weights. 5.30lbs Put a couple packs through it, kinda dig the skinny rovers. Might keep them on for a while The genesis packs performed well, nice punch and about 10mins run time

How's that new servo treating you Bill? I have five S9157's and have never had a problem with any of them, but like you said you can't argue with the numbers.

Went to ECC last weekend and managed to pull out a 46th place finish with my Viper II(87th last year). I should of done better. But after not finishing a course last year, i was just focused on that. I did manage to complete all 6 courses, but i should of gone for more bonuses. Chalk it up as a learning experience
