Drat. I just noticed my wheelbase is now 1/4" over regulation. Time for some shorter rod ends.

After the alterations, I finally got to wheel it at this month's cANZ comp.

What an improvement

Results have not been posted yet, so no word on how I actually went. Which will be irrelevant, as I did not drive it to it's full potential but I'm sure I spanked one or two Losi CC's

Steven,,,good to hear you are seeing a marked improvement in your VC. Any pics from your comp? Or,,,recent pics of the rig,,,set up shots?

Its gotta be a good day when you spank a LCC or AX when the Creeper is so,,,,lets see how do they say it,,,,"The Venom is junk,,,buy a real Crawler.

Hey...who's they?!? I love my Axials, but I like this Creeper too

I brought it down to the scaler comp this weekend for driving Friday afternoon. Still in stock form but it's fun and still no CVD problems, and I was trying to break stuff ... I did take a rather nasty tumble and popped the right rear shock cap off, but everything else is doing fine.

Can't wait to start experimenting with it.

Juan...so filing the cvd out seems to have worked? Have you looked at it really close?

Looking at the results, it was one LCC and two AX's in total, but I pointed out in course 1 of 3 due to the old saying "I can't brain today, I has the dumb"

But, first drive in proper, I'm wrapped.

Well, a day or two too late for the comp, I have my Nova foams in the front. Man, what a difference, they should tighten the off camber turns up nicely.

Still trying to get our rules updated...

Failing that, I'll run in our state titles in two weeks time and swap it over regardless and run without points if I have to...

Thanks guys.

Bob, yep, that was sandstone. We have plenty of good coastal rock around Sydney.

Speedy, **Edit** Ah, I now have seen your thread... it's about climb angle not artic. I'll give that a shot.
