    Wow, that sounds pretty darn 'sporty' Mr. Asp

    Cool body choice but I thought you would pick one with the name of a snake ... not an insect.

    This is the recommended guide flag.
    For the sake of sanity I'm going to allow - "Guide Clips" ... Yeah

    There is talk now of allowing more than one car...?
    My first idea was / is an inline 16D size chassis...but now I'm thinking of adding a sidewinder too...not sure yet which size motor though...

    My latest plan is a Pittcan powered Competition Asp.

    Let the building begin!

    So to be clear.

    Any entrant can send one or more cars.

    The Challenge is just that, 3 tracks - best total combined finishes by one car wins.
    Cherry picking with 3 cars tailored to a specific track won't help get the win.
    It's kind of 'perfect' as it's about the balance, versatility and survivability of the individual build.

    We have run this procedure at Bill's in the past with FCR cars - no gear or any changes - 'pick your poison' kind of set-up.

    It's about 'compromise'

    Tom, Yes different set-ups can broaden your chance of a great run but 'there ain't no guarantees'

    LOL ... he clearly must be saying to himself 'now who's the real asp around here'.


    BTW: I deem that ride 'ill - legal'

    How about build shots and stories as we progress?

    I worked on the Pittcan arm today. It's a NOS 100-38X factory competition arm.

    The comm looked really funky but no way could I cut it on my Hudy with the spool shaped comm ends in the way.

    So to doll up the comm, I snuck it off to work and used a diamond wheel on an old worn out tool grinder, followed up with a 500 grit sandpaper polish and finally a notebook paper polish . Sounds exotic, but a Hudy would actually do a better job.

    I figured that back in the 60's I would home balance my arms, so if it was good enough back then, it's good enough now for a '60's arm.

    I prefer to use epoxy for the balance over drilling as I've messed up too many arms snagging a few lamms with a drill bit resulting in shorted wires.

    Next I put it on my moldy oldie Tradeship balancer. Holy cow, it was off a ton! I was nearly ran out of room for the epoxy before it finally balanced!

    Oh, a fun fact, I checked the comm timing on an optical comparator and it's at 27 degrees from the factory.

    More to come as the build progresses.

    Damn good idea Mr. Pitt Man ... totally agree .. and I will do a bit of a build show too. It's been a while since I opened the box of Dynamic.

    Pro-bob-ly need the '4 Ton' epoxy to get my balance back.

    RULE #995 - Use of optical comparators are allowed.

    WTG .. ASP
    Will you be able to post pictures in the future for tech inspection?
    Describe the 26D motor and I can probably tell you what brand.

    BTW ... I'm thinking of that set-up too ... with a Garvic Lunar body. Mike Swiss called my posts 'lunacy' and he (and very few others) is glad I'm 'tossed' from that other site. I was thinking that body might 'suit my style'.

    What'da youz guyz dink?

    It would be a little closer to home as a previous All Dynamic build was from Mars.

    Remember - Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

    ======= Now on to serious stuff ======

    Guide Flag rule up-date:

    Rear corners of modern guide flags can be trimmed for turning clearance as the riser on the cast tongue might not be high enough and create 'lock to lock' interference.
