    My RS4 was running so well that I ripped a tire off of the rim (I usually over-glue my tires to prevent this!). Didn't help that it was almost 100 degrees out and I was on blacktop, but it's nice to have them both running at the same time! My brother and I are attemping to get a routine down that when he jumps I drive under him, hope to get a picture of it soon! The one above is just my car sitting there, I put some different tires on there and it was all over the road. I couldn't hold it straight once I hit 2nd gear. Trying out new shocks, the white springs on the rear were way too loose and forced me into a spin too many times.

    Taking some time to get used to rear wheel drive... high speed turns aren't on the list of things an off road buggy will perform good at. I haven't been to a track yet, I think this weekend I'm going up to Compton to mess around a little.

    Man, I've been trying to get some drifting down on my RS4 3... I just can't find a place that has a smooth enough surface to pratice on. I got some low traction tires, but when I put those on and drive on the pavement I'm all over the place! I'm geared for taking off fast, makes it hard to control.

    How did the race go??

    For further reference to pull a sleeve out of a stubborn engine. Set the oven to 350 degrees and pop the engine in (make sure ALL meltable parts are off) for about 15 min. Take an old rag or hot pad holder (thats junk) and grab the engine (you have to do this quickly before the engine cools) use a flat scredriver and carefully pry up on the sleeve through the cover plate hole (what the recoil attaches to). You should end up with a gap at the top of the engine about 1/16" or 1/8". Basically just enough to get a screwdriver in and pry the sleeve out. Be carfull not to mangle anything with the screwdriver. The heat will help greatly and the sleeve should be put back in only when the engine has cooled COMPLETELY.
