didnt get much testing done on the weekend...
i took the 1/12 out to the track on sunday, where it got run over by a 1/5th scale
...result... broken rear shock mount(thats the second one)

i CAed it back together, but kept getting a high speed head shake, that would turn into a tank slapper... first time it has shown any instability
will strip it and start again, didnt get enough running to determine if it was caused by the new shocks, so will go back to the old ones till i get it running true again.

and i will try and find a way to make the rear shock mount stronger, even though both breaks occurred under fairly extreme circumstances.

cheers
a

p.s.
chris how is the build going?
