Your rite Dan! Hopefully ill be able to give double the trouble now I have 2 Chunks lol over kill this end?

It was brilliant to see a gaggle of Chunks at Sundays Micro national round! The start grid shot was really cool.

All drivers in 2wd 16th drove really well and Chunk looked really at home on polished sections of the track, fast down straight and nimble in the in field

Love it!

Aha Thomas ...my spare is running trailers with 30 degree caster (same as I run on my inline setup), green LST's at rear and blues up front with 30 weight oil in rear and 35 up front 20 grams just behind steering rack...not too far off yours then mate...although I'm on carpet and polish rather than astro dude

Thumbs up Trailing axles

Well I've ran the trailer up front twice now and if I'm totally honest....I really like them ....a little less steering mid corner but when I got into a flowing section the buggy was smack on...funny thing is...my C2 ran exact same motor, esc, lipo and gearing as my C3 but was smoother to drive!! I could push the buggy more in the tight sections and the trailers def didnt suffer any under steer as some people have found...

I'm going to stick with trailing axles and C2 for a few weeks and work on weight distro a bit more....fun...Chunk is ace!!

Thumbs up chunks at micro national

Well round 3 at Dudley today saw 10 Chunks from my counting. Great to see my favourite 1/16th tearing around in the hands of Si and Dan, Gav, Paul, Ben, and the rest of the Chunk family...class

All Chunks looked really well set-up with some nice rear wheel drive action from the lads
