Got the BCE chassis built up and 15 tanks of fuel run through the VSpec, but broke a front knuckle today screwing around.

Its fast and handles much better than before the new chassis. Lets get out there!

Hey Boys, Those V-Specs are fast, I've had 2 regular and 1 JP Mod one. The only thing you should do is break them in on 20% and run 20% or they won't last too long. They're fast but they don't last!!!!!!!!!!!

Secondly, having run them and my Novarossi 528 Race motor, I can tell you the novarossi will kick their butts. Hands down. Twisted Evil

I came home today with my Cen Matrix Pro Kit, a set of Crime fighters, Hitec 5955 servo, a JP-3 pipe, and a couple of parts for my evader. I still have to order 23mm wheels, a body, and my LRP .28 engine (out of stock).

I am excited to get this race-machine built!

I will keep you all posted on my build. I imagine I will get a start on it this weekend but most of the work will be next Wed-Mon.

The LRP is on backorder so I have a little time to get the build on.

I think my Matrix went over pretty well at the track this weekend. I am in the process of painting the body the traditional florescent yellow/metalic blue/indy silver paint scheme.

I think that is what impressed me the most about it. I would have to say for my first build it was a lot easier than I had thought. Now I did have to ask Ryan and Rick a few questions especially about shimming the diffs. The guys on the other forums were a huge help with set-ups and race mods.

I would recommend a kit build for anyone who is thinking about seriously getting into racing. I have learned a lot.

I am going to have to buy a special body for racing. One that does not look so nice.

I paid good money to have that gear mesh perfect. Tell Rob his check is in the mail. tongue

I noticed in the one picture, if you need to refuel, you're screwed, you don't have a wire tie on your fuel tank lid. Exclamation

When you paint the new body, you should put it on a Jammin CRT Pro, then you'll be ready to rock. Cool lol!

I put a zip tie on the fuel lid after I had taken the pictures. I was in a rush to get the pictures taken , because I was using a friend's digital camera.

I think I am going to keep the matrix and let you guys drive your Jammins. Give me a few weeks and then we will see who can drive.

The track progress was looking good when I left. I am planning on getting out their on Sunday. Roger their is a shovel with your name on it. bounce

Nino, your truck looks good. The only thing I didn't really like was the dog bones for the diff universals. You better hope that 28 isn't a fuel hog, or you'll be fueling when those 21's are passing by.
