Ah I should mention the VISTA competition. We placed #1 in Canada, and we ended up 4th in the world.

I also bought a set. Had Eric Olson bring them along to Seattle from Stockholm, then Trevor+ shipped them to me. Saved 90 Euros in shipping...

I want a set! They look great, certainly don't have to worry about them deforming or shearing off.

electronic throttle body ooOOOoo

Looks very interesting. And I can support a board member. I haven't bought anything yet. Gotta make sure it will work with the DSM adapter (which I don't think it should have a problem with)

The other advantage, is they won't force the T5 transmission mount backwards, like Dave Barton has shown in pictures a few times.

The shipping was a bit brutal. I thought of picking them up next time I'm over there, or having one of my peers who travel there regularly for training pick them up for me. I was surprised when they showed up in two days. Maybe if I had emailed them in advance and asked for slower shipping, it would have been cheaper. Oh well.

Justile. Check the "Cable VS E throttle" in the EMS forum.


Question about my Cams.

Both are slotted. I've found the markings on the rear are "UA and E" (I marked them when coming out, and the E was in the intake side.

From the green manual, the car cams are marked U and U1. What the heck do I have? I was under the impression that they were stock NA cams. The head is from a Penta engine though. I can't find a Penta manual to find what they were marked.

For those of you with wide wheels/tires. On a 240, how much room should I have between the inside of the rear wheel to the body? Right now I'm @ 1.5" with the axle centered at as close to ride height as I can get (might end up a bit lower). Suspension is quite stiff with 250lb springs in the rear.

Can't delete my post. Guess the forums have changed. Saw you were interested in MaxxECU.

I also got my MaxxECU race from Justile (Justus@jjfab.net) and he's been super helpful too. Very excited about it, I think you'll dig it Jordan.
