I am pleased to say the FG was great during Power Jam.I had a servo bite the dust and take me out early, but still managed a 4th place finish. The only damage the car sustained was a broken shock end. At $2.85 for 2 of them I would say it was a good weekend at the track!

At first it was pushing, but moving the turnbuckles up on the steering knuckles did wonders. I had just gotten news of my mom being in ICU a few minutes before my main, so I was having a hard time on the track. I was cutting my corners to soon and just having trouble concentrating. But the car was there, it was the driver that was struggling. About the time I calmed down and started finding my groove, the servo went South. Had the servo held out I think I would have finished a lot better. But that is racing....


I do want to say the ds mill was a perfect match for that car. It accelerates like an electric buggy.

Now that Power Jam is behind us, I look forward to just bashing it a bit. It is a very fun car.

My mom is doing better. She burned herself trying to sneak a cigarette while wearing oxygen. I guess she didn't have the oxygen on her face but laying on her shoulder. It is bad, but it could have been much worse.

For someone on this side of the pond, I would say go for the MCD. lsrc has the parts you need to keep going. It can be difficult to get FG parts sometimes. That being said, I would take another FG in a second. The wife is going to be getting a monster truck soon. We may do the 4WD conversion on it.

They are super pricey, but the FG Leopard 4 Comp is a beauty!

Hi Highwaystar can you show me exactly where you moved the turnbuckles up on the steering knuckles. Picture would be great thanks :)

Need to cure my understeer problem.
