Roger,

 

This is the IRRA legal one not the tapered one correct?

Some one told me the tapered ones could not be used. It is good to know that they are both legal, Now all you have to do is get Dennis to put the weights in the tapered ones.

 

I for one would buy a bunch of those instead of the ones I have been using. 

 

Regards,

Greg

Tapered ones can be used, they just need to be shortened by about .015.
A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

They need to be shortened because they are longer than the IRRA guide shoe (blade) regulations of .086" wide and 1.060" long.

It is legal to shorten the guide blade to meet these requirements.

I didn't realize that.

 

Which end should be shortened?

Hard to believe  but we are out of heavy weight pampa guides again.

Never fear, we have 200 more guides coming.

 

Heavy weight tapers there are 18 left

 

Missed these in the bottom of the box, forgot I had sent a few

Maybe I'm living in the dark ages, but I wish someone would make a low CG guide from the old Starburst guide.

 

I have a couple of cars that want the shorter guide.

Why not drill it all the way through and put five slugs all the way through?

That's my point. Wouldn't it be easy to set five longer slugs than 10 shorter ones?

What am I missing in understanding the process that you use?
