Front end limiters

For anyone who's going to Houston this weekend, I'm bringing a couple of extra sets of front end limiters if anyone wants to try them out. If your truck launches rough on the track, these should help you out.

Re: Front end limiters

That's one of the worst launchs I've seen. If he had any power he might have broke something(looked stock with a chip).
Did he have something on part of his tires? Maybe he drove through something on the way to the line.

Re: Front end limiters

I don't know that it'd totally cure it but I bet it'd help. I'll have some sets in Houston you can try if you're gonna be there. I used to have to fight mine some but launches real smooth with 'em on.

That looked like an OBS truck to me. . .don't think 90cc AA's would smoke that much, bet hes got a little more than just a chip.

Yeah just a little more than a chip.

That lane sucked every time I tried to launch in it. That is by far the worse launch I've ever done. I usually run my stock sized tires but didn't have them where I could swap them out before that race and needless to say I won't be running those ones again. It would usually hop a bit off the line but nothing like that. Not sure what was on that side of the track makeing it suck so bad but the other lane was MUCH better. After watching the video I'm kind of supprised I didn't bust anything either. Traction bars should be going on this winter sometime so that should help. Might have to make up some of those front end limiters as well.

Re: Front end limiters

I guess they can fit the rear springs, but that would be a first.......
