1. Being only armed with the 1700 Sanyo's, will I still get the 5 minutes run time out of the hotter motor? (The rules have been expanded up to 2400 mah).

2. Would it be advisable to go to a smaller pinion tooth number to keep the car tractable and extend run time?

3. Will the hotter motor make the hardened pinion a must?

Thanks and regards

1. We race in Indonesia, Tamiya Asia Cup with Sport Tune Black Motor, Tamiya SCR1400 batts, and 5 minutes. The 1400 battery last 10 minutes during practice session. We discharghe until 0 volt and charge the batt at 3.5A for voltage.

2. 20T pinion.

3. Not required with Tamiya Sport Tune Black. Just grease them with Tamiya Grease / Ceramic grease.

Thanks for the info, most appreciated.

Our local SA crowd tend to refer to as per Asia Cup rules. Are these downloadable on the net, anywhere.

Kind regards
Dave

What should I use of on road pavment. I read 60wt for front and 40 for rear. Is that true and what would be the equilivant for Tamiya oil Thanks again!
I am using the TRF shocks as well. I put inside the shock from the V parts the shorte black sleeve on the shaft. Use the short eylet (You should barely be able to get the spring retainer on when the shock is built. I run 90wt oil in the front and 50 wt in the rear. seems to work for me.

You are right on that. What a fun class the minis are. When have about 6 guys with them. Like you said fun. The other guys take the touring car classes serious. With their minis they can relax and have fun.

I sure would love to give one of the Customworks Sprinters a try. Wont hurt as much if you put a real sprinter on its lid. On that note, Hope Tony Stewart is ok from his flip at the Chili Bowl. Do your run mostly Dirt or Carpet? If on dirt are they mostly a dry slick track or do your run on a heavy track? I would Like to hook that big right rear on the cushion and power around the top of the track. Thats my favorite place to run right around the top. Are they only Nitro power or are there electric ones? Thanks again!!!!

Customworksking, a few more questions.

1. With the TRF shocks do you run internal limiters ? I have heard a few people say this, to limit droop????

2. I have the Tamiya lowering springs. What would you recommend. There is the soft , med and hards . Dont fwd's run softer springs in the front?

3. Do you use the short or long bottom eyelets for the shocks.

Again thank you very much for sharing your knowledge.

Sincerely, Phil

Bug you guys one more time. I cant find the part number for Tamiya 6mm hex adapters for the Cooper. I have looked all over the net and google and Tamiyas site. They are called hex adapter or wheel adapters right????? I am sure a few of you guys have the whole Tamiya parts catalog memorized.
