Well after trading WK stuff to Jeff I had to get another comp truck together.

Most people know I am so against these things it is ridiculous but it's all about performance so, game on. Peer pressure has won me over.

It won't be done for this first comp but I'm trying to at least get it legal so I can compete. I'm having some horrible track width issues since I'm running stock clod axles (won't be long until that is changed). Using axial beadlocks my track width is 12.75" OUCH! Gotta work on that.....

How much do you want for them Tom? I'll take em. I have some mashers I was going to run but I don't want to glue them on the pede rims I have because I want to cut them down to 1.9s. Those narrowed mashers will at least get me through Saturday.

You can bring them Saturday if you are coming?

You don't have much to worry about this time Derek. This thing is barely going to fit in between the gates with the massive track width. I'm struggling to even get it legal to compete......

nope nat its not a truck it is better. its kinda like a corn dog. hot dogs are good but put them on a stick and dip them in batter and they are even better...

apperantly sticks make everything better.

and dont forget frozen choclate covered :banana: somthing else sticks make even better..

so when nick is laying the smack down with his big stick I will just think of :superbanana: :superbanana: :superbanana: frozen on a stick covered in chocolate.

As is, you're too wide.

There's a few wheels out there that'll help, like the HPI Super Nitro Mesh wheels.

One of the greatest pleasures I have in life is "letting" PeePee finish better than me at a comp. Trust me, this is difficult to do.

Thanks EeePee! That would help! I'm wanting to run the R2J axle tubes and knuckles but can't spring that cash right now. Instead of sitting on the side lines saturday I figured I might as well get something running even if I do take out every gate I can find.

I think there are quit a few "comp" trucks..... That is why Derek and Harley rebuilt their trucks, Matt's truck is definitely comp, Stu's bull is all out comp, Tom's truck whooped on all us last time at Copley, Andy's AX10 is all out comp, etc....

The biggest change will be wheel setup. That really killed me last comp. The truck was 12.5" wide and the tires were to hard up front and way to soft out back.

I have some rims that will narrow it up, changing up the foams, 2S lipo, playing with tire weights and some axle trimming.
