Steve, Someone is selling their Sabre in the classified section.  He is asking 350 plus has the 17.5 Cirtix combo included.  Also Jay Sharp is selling a awsome looking Hudy 1/8 scale roller bag.  I dont have the money but just throwing it out there for somone!  I also think the front wheel drive cars are cool.  I thought Hungs FF03 car actually looked faster but needs to be dialed a little better.  Should get interseting.

Steve, or check out the Sakura FF from HKS. I still preferred to have the motor in the front. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.142245329158280.20687.138119022904244

There is a FF11 upgrade kit coming out for FF03. http://www.roche.hk/

Agreed. Very touring like into the corner and mini off.Its a nice compromise. The cars performance is excellent. Very nice SPEC style racing for sure whether on Parking Lot or Norcal's permanent track.
Really?

Jake-if you drove a Sabre you would forget about any comparisons to a Tamiya mini (I assume that's the one you are refering to).  The Sabres are the ones making all the noise because they have an open gearbox with large pitch gears just like a mini.  The FF03s are pretty quiet (I think, since you sure can't hear them over the Sabre racket lol)  Anyway, the Sabre handles like a really good touring car and is super fun to drive.  If everyone new how much of a gas they are the class would grow really fast.  If you want to check one out come hack a lap with mine

This is Jay using O.D.'s computer

Steve is right no one gives a $hit what he thinks. Carino's FF-03 held it's own just fine in the main the FF-03 has a bunch more speed to be found. The Sabre's are being developed on a steeper curve because of a team effort. Everyone has a choice of what to run, look how many T3 2011's were in the pits at the Reedy this year. We are having alot of fun in this class and I encourage anyone to come out and try it. We will not let cheating get out of had and ruin the class like it did with 2WD mini.

I try not to post on forums anymore as I feel it is pointless and egotistical on my part to think that anyone gives a $hit about what I have to say. However, the front wheel drive class was created to make the cars as equal as possible and let the drivers be the only variable. Tim can out drive everyone, which is why he won. Did he slow down a couple of times, yes! But down the back straight, out of all four of the Saber cars, only OD had a car that was slightly faster at the end of the straight. Hung. If for some reason your Tamiya car is not as fast down the straight as the Saber, then we need to adjust the formula so the Tamiya car is just as fast. We don’t want this to be a single manufacture class. We can do that with gearing down the Saber cars or gearing up the Tamiya car. What we want is everyone finishing on the same lap with no driver having a mechanical advantage over any other driver. While my car was the slowest out there, it was fun finishing on the same lap with everyone and once I get my gearbox, sensor wire, gear diff, etc. figured out, I will give old Tim a run for his money. There were a couple of racers that came over to look at our cars after the main because they liked seeing everyone on the same lap with each of the drivers having a shot at winning!!

And James was tooling around the track in WGT at the same pace as me for most of the race.  Nice 2nd place.

Get the new chassis and you will be there!

So what are you Saying Hung? My car was the same speed down the stright as all the rest of the cars.  And yes you did see me slow down and wait a few times as when people crashed I waited for them to make a close race and the last 3 laps when Mike pulled away from the 3rd and 4th place cars he stayed about 5 feet behind me till he hit the corner and rolled over.

Had a great time today. Fun racing in the 17.5 NR class. My dad, Chris D, and I were all battling for 2nd place for almost the whole race. WGT was a blast too once I figured out the car and finished a run.

Id also like to thank Larry and Steve for the help today. Thanks guys!

Close racing, LMAO, was it my imagination or did I see Tim Copp slowing down to wait for the field more than a dozen times. I guess people will say what they want to say and see whatever benefits them.

Another great job at NorCal today props to John for nipping a problem in the bud for the FWD class. We want to keep this class about close racing like our main showed all cars on the same lap within 10 seconds from first to last!
