Like these photos, especially that one from the back showing the inside front wheel getting a bit of air.

Great pics, how did you do? I was only doing some testing and Data logging I have been trying to find a fix to a power loss problem . while under race conditions . the car gets weak after a few laps then the the power suddenly come back then weak again . it's hard to win like that.

Nice pics!

Joel - given your track set up, could your power variation be from intermittant fuel starvation?

Great pics Joel, that's a good way to save rubber, lifting the inside front tire! Did you figure out why it gets weak?

sweet pics. Only place I've lifted a wheel on maggy is at Monticello on the left downhill turn 1. Wish I had pics to share here; that feeling of the car crabbing a little was a bit unsettling the first time the wheel stays of for any duration. Pretty neat overall though to tricycle a barge at speed.

You keeping the pumps immersed at all times, Joel, so they're not overheating?

I raced today, and the car ran perfect until 4 laps to go. I was leading my class and had even backed off some just to save the car then it went to hell in a bad way. It went into full dead gas pedal limp mode . I could cycle the switch and go again after it started to do that it continued get steadily worse happening several times a lap. and I just barely made it off the track after the checker flag I will post my video later tonight I finished second in class . It was a bitter pill to swallow after pulling away from the rest of my class. then to get passed while having mechanical issues.

Like hemisam was hinting to, it sounds seriously like the fuel pumps are getting out of the bath! How long was the race? Were you under about 30% at the finish? Mine starts to balk around that point and lets you know its time for fuel, it does NOT recover though so it doesn't sound the same. I don't know what fuel hats or pumps you run.
