    Here's how it sits so far, I need to shorten it up a little as it is about a 1/4" to long.

      Alright just about done, just waiting on my parts from NCD. Wheel base is now legal, I shortened the front links and made some lighter rear uppers. Im very happy how this turned out, there is so much adjustability in these axles and chassis that it would be impossible to not find a good setup! I did raise the upper portion of the chassis up one hole which raised the shock mounts up a little. Upper link mounts have been raised at the axle case to the highest position so the upper links clear the case using straight links during digging. Got a comp next weekend so we'll see how it does."thumbsup"

                  Yeah, I'm with Douwe. I cannot express my jealousy enought of you having that spot. If I ever go to Washington Mount Erie will be the first place I go.

                    We got 3 spots around that area to comp, all are just as awesome and with great views! When the weather is nicer people rock climb off the side of the mountain.

                        What happened? I blew both of my BR Minies in the first tests, without any reason... Switched back to castle and I can smile again.

                          Not sure yet, it stopped working as soon as I got through gate 3 and wont arm, no smoke came out but since it will only beep at me trying to arm itself its pretty much done. I had the same happen on one of my Micro Pros before and it would never re-arm itself. Its lasted through 9 comps so far this season, time to try out the warranty. I was going to put my spare one in my sporty but I guess it will go in to replace this one now.

                            Bummer doot.

                            I hate electrical issues, unlike mechanical issues it drives me nuts when I cannot physically see the issue.
