    I forgot to mention i put both buggy and truggy M4 2.2 primes on the Faultline wheels to try. I think the buggy tires will be too low profile to be useful (low ground clearance) but I will try them. I'm using the M4 compound because they are the softest of the two choices.

    OMG!

    So this guy came down (to South Carolina) from North Carolina with his Slash-based street eliminator looking for somewhere to race. He came to our late night race spot to hang-out/race with us. I lined up with him to do some hits.

    THIS GUY HAS THE FASTEST ELIMINATOR I'VE SEEN TO DATE!!!!

    He beat me like 4 or 5 times in a row. AND he gave me the break each time.

    Much respect for the Bisquick car (because that Bisquick).

    Any info on his setup? I just finished up a car using the same body with the belted pro-lines.

    I don't know anything about his set-up, but I have seen that wing before:

    Here's what I know....

    LCG Slash chassis, Corvette C7 body (obviously), stock Slash shocks, YES, "STOCK" Slash shocks, Fantom motor, Hobbywing ESC, 1.7"x2.5" rear wheels. The rear wheels provide a smaller roll-out than the typical 2.2"x3.0" SCT wheels, which get you off the line quicker.

    That's all I got....

    I wonder if he's using a slipper or not. I believe in using them because if you can get it to take off smooth and straight without long wheelies you'll win 9 times out of 10. I just put a Pro-Line wheelie bar on my car mostly for looks. I can get it to take off without excessive wheelieing (?) but as the clutch grabs it goes!

    Definitely NOT using the slipper.

    Using the slipper is the slow way to go (in my opinion).

    The angle of the picture I took doesn't show his wheelie bar, but it's there. And it gets utilized.

    Any slipping is lost power and time in drag racing. I understand your point, but come up against a guy with a good setup and throttle control, and you are slower

    I got in touch with a local group that has a race monthly, i'll get a chance to see how my ideas work on the 30th. I have different cars to set up different ways.

    Yeah! That post is talking about his week long adventures here in the lowcountry. After the first night I met him, I took him around to a few of our 'secret' test/tune spots. He is one of the coolest guys, too.

    He made me want to step-up my game a little. He is VERY meticulous about his eliminator set-ups. While we were at the spot where he broke their track record, he made adjustments throughout the day & wrote them down in his notebook. He says he'll be ready the next time he races there with the right set-up from the start.

    No one seems to post in the Traxxas 4-Tec forum so thought I'd ask here. Can anyone tell me if the ProLine Nova body will fit on the 4-Tec? Will the Pomona wheels and Hoosier tires fit on it as well? Thanks.

    No it won't. The 4Tec is a different (shorter) wheel-base than an SCT (for which the Nova body is designed).

    Hope you didn't drop the cash on one yet.
