First off, I want to say thanks to Phil, Aaron, Deeter Motorsports and everybody else for putting on the build clinic. I had a great time and it was awesome to meet up with a bunch of seasoned racers and get some good word-of-mouth tried-and-true info and to hear your stories. I highly suggest to anybody else who is interested in this stuff to try and make it to a future clinic, as everybody that was there was just a great bunch of people.

Anyways, I forgot my notepad in the beginning so I missed the steering stuff, however I did keep the clinic packet and will scan/ copy that stuff over into a stickied post in the Steering forum. Most of it is known, but the key stuff is the Toe, Camber, etc for high-speed racing.

The rest of the notes I have is transaxle related. This is also going into its own post here.

Also check the How-to + FAQ forum for an update to the Transaxle Locking Methods thread.

And the rest of us assume it as a hobby. Governor/flywheel bolshevic, anybody? LOL... Seriously- I WANT that job. Mythbuster. You get to blow crap up, be on TV, and get paid for it all. Nothing better than that!

Pretty much. I think these were supermod, cant remember. I think Junkstar got vidya of the owner going over them, not sure. But a lot of the chassis are custom 1x2" tubing. Aaron was saying how one chassis could qualify for like 8 classes.
