tuning up the rc

I just want to say thanks again for the set of diablo corsa 3s i won for last months contest...I ended up using the money i saved to treat the rc to some needed upkeeping. I went ahead and did all new brakes, new sprockets and chain, oil change and filter, and of course had the diablos put on today. I gotta wait around for the sprockets to come in but then she will be ready to go, thanks!!!!

Corsa III's are a great tires. I was swore that I wasn't going to run anything else untill I won a set of M3's from here a few months ago. I'm going to slap them on soon and take em to the track so see how they compare.

I have seen those Corsas make people better riders. haha I rode with a guy the other day who had the Corsas on, and made some mistakes in his turns, but the stickyness of the tires let him keep correcting.

Havent got a chance to really test the tires but god the bike feels so great after the tune up. I went with the 16/42 gearing so it wouldnt chug so much, put a custom map on the power commander tuned for smooth throttle response and no igniton advance and it feels like a new bike. Tires seem SO planted ill see what i think of them when i hit some twisties saturday!

RC - Glad to hear that all is good... definitley want to hear your feedback as you ad some miles on the Pirellis.

Everyone else - enter the contests... they are real and we deliver! We have been giving away 2 set of rubber every month since 2003... except for a short period in 2006.

Hmmm DreamRyder won a set a few years ago... wonder how they did for her.

Oh yeah.. delivery time is 2-3 days from when we get the info to our guys, just take some time tracking down our contacts.
