OK put a solid axle in car last week,got me fastest paractice time monday night 9.3.Club champion got a 9.1 on race night but car didnt seem as fast in race.It was so easy to drive though ,in some lanes dont think I came off and so smooth one guy commented have I got a motor in it ,its so quiet.Ive taken the little bit of lead out now as axel adds weight.OH I came 5th last time 4th.

OK Denny,
Now the analysis....

Who beat you and what have they done to the cars to make them finish higher ??

If it is just their driving, then track time will help you to sort that out.....

Maybe they have a trick they have done that you mightn't have thought about..

Congratulations on you efforts so far.
Cheers
Kev.

Been a while since I posted here .Ive had so much trouble signing back in to this site.
My Cudas are not very stock any more,changed all running gear a few times in both cars,last race it did 8.4s but I think the owner must of turned up the voltage its never gone that fast before its been hard to break under 8.7s with my other car.This car was only just getting sorted and only 1.tenth faster in practice.but then in race it started to go.It was blowing everything away on the straight.now my local track has closed so have to sort it out for a timber track .SLOT SHOP
OK I have a question but Ill ask it again in its own thread does any one know which way the switch in a dual polarity PM controller goes for a Neg track UP or DOWN no instrutions its second hand desceased estate thanks

Hi Denny

Most PM's have a little green light which glows when the polarity is correct. Not sure of the dual polarity version though. Check out the PM controller section on Professor Motor's website, lots of good information there. You might need to know the model number which is the hard part as I'm not sure they put it on the controller?

I still cant find where I change my password to one I know and can remember, :? Every time I want to post I cant and they send me a bunch of numbers I cant remember so I just leave it months .
Well I did get my Pro motor controller sorted .But I haven't raced for over 2 years now .
Im still playing with cars but got sick of the people who think its F1 . :x
I just went to have fun and when someone pisses me off I just couldn't be bothered .I cant handle the stress since my Stroke and HBP.
