Yes, a wider car is a more stable car. A wider rear allows the car to pivot (not to be confused with rotate) better thru the corners, at the expense of less steering. Basically, the car will have a more "planted" feel. Hope this helps.

jayrodracer, are you Jarrad from Fl...... If so, don't you think you should send my chassis that you owe me before you sell that HPI stuff??? If you are not him than I am sorry for the confusion but if you are him then it's cool I see how things are and I will see you soon....

Thanks. I'll check it out. By the way, do you know the difference between the HPI Competition O-rings and the Low-Friction O-rings? Also, what do the numbers 30, 40, 50, etc. at the end, mean? Don't know, if, it's an old question - been away for a while.

I'll let Erik answer your question... but my guest is that the # represent different hardnesses.

to me the stock o-rings work just fine...

Here's another question for Erik S., or maybe Thad:

In Andy Moore's (and Thad's for that matter) setup, he limits up travel pretty severely. What is he trying to achieve with this? Is he getting rid of the last .5 mm of the actual roll in the car, or is he getting the car onto the stops all over the track? i saw his car at Cleveland, and it did look smooth, effortless to drive and fast. I'm just trying to get at what the thought behind this is, so i can add it into my thinking when I'm at the track.

Thanks

Rotating pertains to spinning... the wheels are breaking free and swinging the car around a corner.

Pivoting pertains to the car maintaining balance, stability and traction while transitioning weight thru the corner. Hope this makes sense.

I see. To me rotating = pivoting. Thanks

yes it is me and first of all it was certainly a fair trade, i even asked craig x who is a much higher caliper racer than BOTH of us and he even thought the car was awesome, and YES I am selling the bmi chassis b/c I am not running carpet at all, im working on getting you a brand new chassis because if you did some research you would pretty much that its almost impossible right now to get a ft chassis, being that a xray sponsored driver friend of mine cant even get one right now, it still boggles my mind about the xray chassis because you have to sand down the chassis for the down stops to work properly, and I sent you an ENORMOUS amount of xray parts which if you look in any hobby shop you will see that xray parts are way more expensive than hpi parts. It has every new part available even the new front tower which was impposible to get, but I got you one! so maybe u need to rethink the whole thing alittle, one more thing from what I heard you were selling the car anyway!! .

Thumbs down

jayrodracer, I told you when I got the car that the chassis were junk and that I needed another chassis for the trade to be done. You said that you would get me a chassis and send it, that was the last thing I heard. As for CraigX he has nothing to do with a trade between you and me. Furthermore he has never seen what was sent to me because I have never shown him. You need to either send me a chassis or let me know now that I'm not getting one. Either way it's cool, I see how you are and I have learned from this transaction....
