wow ... i have been away 4 5 days... i dropped by in seremban to test out the super huge track ... i have pics ... will post later
IMHO the track is a SUPERB high speed track .... so much so that i busted my front diffs its bent ... gona try strightening it our or maybe get a new set ...
tried a friendly racers pro3 and i must say that car is COOL but i just cannot gte used to the FLEX it has ...my car is just WAYYYYY too stiff and expecially with a 10x3 motor(a friends motor)+ 6.7 gearing the car was JUST SOO FAST on that huge track which was ment for 1/5 scale ...
while playing side by side tthe pro 3 actually had it chasis broken into 2 pieces after crashing into the sidewall on the begining of the strights ( thats what happen when u have understear ) damn i forgot to take pics of that !
that pro 3 has a super stiff shock setup and compared to mine ... it felt like it has little or no suspension
the owner said it was 90w with 1 hole piston -no droop
hehe i used to love running my car hard and without droop and it was SLOWER! cause it has less grip .... i wanted to ask him to test out a softer setup but too bad he broke his car
alvin ... how many holes in piston do u use with the 50W??
i also changed my friends setup a little and it FELT GREAT!
do give it a try ....
BTW the blue springs i said in my setup is from the 3 speing set not the 4 spring set which means its softer then the red one in the 4 spring set and softer then any springs in the hard tuned springs set ...... if u tried it with the blue springs u have u will be suprised on how the heck i could control such a TWICHY CAR ! lol
ok here are the changes i made to my friends car
full time 4wd
longest and upper hole for the rear camber link on the hubs and on the shock tower
longest and upper hole on the front shock tower for the front camber links
the stearing linkage is set to the QUCKEST RESPONSE ... on knuckle arm .... not sure what u call it ... but i m sure its written in the manual.....
everything else remains the same .,.. BUT BUT BUT if u r using the 4 springs set like the one u said in the singapore thread
TRY THESE SPRINGS INSTEED OF THE ONES USED BY MY FRIEND...
REAR make sure its the red spring and with a slightly higher ride height
FRONT try out all the other springs to see which one handles best
but ofcourse use a slightly lower ride height
also TRY changing the knuckle arm location to normal response and try out with eaach setup ....
ok try this out and let me know .... how u like it....
hehe theres like 4 pple who tested the car and they said it was superb! onpower slight understear
offpower slight overstear
not my favourite kind of car tho but my friend love it - he cant drive with one ways
my coments will be ... well i kinda 'begin' to love it cause i can PUSH the car WAY off my limits.
during overtaking i can eat someone "inside OUT- if u know what i mean (driving off the line or any line and still maintain speed and overtake)" cause its soo easy to control ... totally no rear end slide and it has a turning radius of slightly smaller than 1 meter turning radius at moderate speeds to top speed its like above 2 meters turning radius
now ... i m gona try to achive the same feeling for my car
