      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Was able to get some more done on this model in the weekend due to the bad weather outside there was NO racing at my local track...

Made up a set of headers from solder wire (1st go at this) also decided that I`m going to put a driver in this time , So I used the figure from the sprintcar kit and re-shape him to fit. :lol:

Well have been slowly working away on this model,But the other day I was inform by a driver/chassis builder that he thinks that my rear axle is too far back.

So I have sent most of the weekend re-working the rear axle and mounting points... Ended up moving it about 3mm..

And even though I hate to admit it , he was right it does better now..
