We had our stock Magna-traction race allowing JL cars last night, so I decided to race a "box stock" JL car.
I selected the JL F&F R2 Mazda (Minus wing).
I had to work late, so I opened the car just minutes before the race was to start. I did nothing more then tweak the shoes so that they lay flat on the track surface, and remove all that horrid white grease from the axle and gears replacing it with good old sowing machine oil, my personal lube of choice. I then put a set of press on silicone tires on the back and off I went.
Mind you this car had been sealed in it's little plastic tomb just minutes earlier, and had no run time to break it in nor did it have any of the so-called problems (wheels out of round, axle slop etc.) that some people keep B_tching about.
Also keep in mind I'm racing with guys that have 20 years experience each in tweaking Mag chassis, so no one in the pack is a slouch! When it was all said and done, I took second
place and only missed first by one lap!
