>>but the camera stopped working so I have to send it back for repairs<<

I'm sure catching the edge of the 10th scale jump on the left side of the track didnt help. I'll bet that tumble killed the camera. I really should have pulled the car after the first 5 minutes. My appologies.

Traxxas has good support so i hope they will replace it (and recover the footage).

Eddy,

I couldn't get it to work yesterday.  I went back to Norcal today and got a little bit of footage but the camera stopped working so I have to send it back for repairs.

Had a blast yesterday, Its going to take a little bit for me (the driver) to drive better, but SLASH racing was a blast!!!! its amazing how hard these things are to drive, even though they dont go that fast (unless you have Vega HP)

KP - you have that onboard video for 1/8e?

First day back in off-road and man it takes some getting used to but I had fun nonetheless. I'm gonna have to try those Jconcept Bar Codes. What is the wear on those compared to the BK Bars?

Mich I saw Skoty's car go full speed on your ankle at the end of the straight. I thought I'd be the first to get hit covering "the bowl." Are you really ok!

Awesome day of racing!  I'm getting the 8ight dialed in now, but Skoty is still hard to beat with that MP9.  Just imagine how fast he would be with a good car. Tongue out

See you guys next weekend for some more 1/8 action.  Can't wait for the big race later this month.

Great day of racing today. Lots of fun and a respectable turnout with all the other racing going on this weekend. Kevin Pita your Losi is on point. Mini Mod great race and congrats to all the winners. Some new faces hit the track today. Steve Small good to see you out. You still cut the good lines.

Would the SC10 be run with the RC10T4/J82 class instead of the Slash class since it is based off the T4?

Hopbot,

Don't worry about adding weight for the lipos.  I've tried it and the car works better with no weight added.  For the Norcal track since it's high bite and smooth I'd just stick to the setup you have.  There is a "lightweight" setup I saw on Associated's website where they went to one step lighter springs front and rear, and removed the rear swaybar and went to the outer camber link hole on the front upper deck.  I have that setup on my car now and it works really well.  Something you might want to try.  Also, make sure your front diff is tighter than the rear.  I almost lock my front diff down and run the rear 1/8 turn out. 

The older I get the faster I used to be.

hey there guys, got a setup question - i usually run this shock setup on my B44:

Oil f/r: 40/30

Springs f/r: silver/green

 i have added 3oz lead weight since i run lipos and its felt really good (it brings the lipo + lead weight to 15oz, about the same as a NiMH pack). now i just got a new hard-case reedy lipo saddle pack and i'm contemplating running without any added weight (it's about 4oz lighter than a NiMH saddle pack), since i've seen that on some setups. any ideas how my setup would change? lighter oil? softer springs?

sorry to drone on, thanks in advance for any advice!
