    hey try loosening the shocks so you get more weight on the rear wheels, and see if you can go faster!!!

    with good traction you actually want less suspension travel as the movement of the suspension actually converts forward motion into vertical motion and this slows the car down....this is why most dragsters dont have a suspension....

    I was reading your other post on your fast electric. It would be cool to see what it would do if you glued the track with the nitro car

    I also ran a 165ft run just to see what it could do... 2.8@58mph


    I'm super pleased with the performance I'm getting out of this simple setup! Stock 3.3 power!!! Now it's time for some bolt-ons.
