Nice save on the rollover!! Good driving all the way around.

I could see where a little weight in the rear might help but I don't think you'll need much. She looks like she's dialed in pretty damn good.

Thanks, yeah I'm thinking half a, .100 or two halves. This rig has been awesome to build an learn to drive. The steering was a huge help! Specially around the top of that big rock that it just made it around the edge of.. That was almost too close for comfort. I'm just glad the motor swap was on its game an nice an smooth. Any jumpy/jerky happenings at that point would have been horrible! Broken parts even, no good

Thanks Ev..
Yeah, I don't know that he puts much time into it, so its prolly the same setup. Mmm, nicley put, I would take it apart an rebuild it. Lol. But I rebuild everything! Lower rear, clocked back more on the rear axle. Clock the front axle back or at least clock the chubs. Get rid of or change the shock setup. I felt a little bind or stick point in the front link/suspension cycle. Flip the rear links end for end. Lol.. just off the top of my head.. (how'd ur bro do with setup).... I think he got 4th with it.. all an all it ran good, I just like rebuilding and changing. It was planted and great to watch crawl!

Yeah... front axle you can't really clock the chubs cause than if you do since it has the BWD bombproof shock/link mounts so if you clocked them it would tip those back... kinda the only downside to it..

I loved those LH's cause it was soo easy to adjust the weight on it and they did just keep it planted

Seems link something that can be easily delt with... just as easily as clocking the chubs... Or simply clock the axle..

I don't care that you posted them before me.. I just post them up for Troy when I see them.

And if you don't like my "crazy new phrases" don't look at my posts..

The wife pulled some pics off the camera that she got of the course we didn't get video of..

Gate 2 was a tricky one, not that the pic shows it. But you will see from gates 3-5 how much of a side hill this is an the crack doesn't make it any easier. I actually came up at it an took a hard right around the gate an back down.



Coming back up an towards gate 3



Gate 3 to 4 on top.. I think is my favorite pic from the comp..



Down thru 5.. the long, steep part is behind the rig



Gate 6 straight down..



Which is where I got into trouble... at the bottom my rear end kicked to the left, which made for a hard hard left needed to get this gate.. I stopped at the fuzz an took my reverse for the day.. :(



8 behind me an headed thru 9.



Across to the finish..



Finish..



The wife forgetting the crawling portion was most important.. lol.. great pic..

Had a comp on Sunday and took it for 2nd place in 1.9.. turbofest took 1st

Want to thank my sponsors.. HH motors an CW crawlers, for their great products, to get me thru another comp..

Didn't get the first course.. of course it was my best run with a perfect score.. here are the other two courses..

Ended with a 0

Got a 16 on this course.. was the only one to finish it at the time.. I believe only two ppl finished it out of 8 or 10..

Nice rig man. I just traded into an MRC myself and can't wait to get into it. Been wanting one for awhile. I might have a bunch of questions for you...
