Jay,

Was to answer this enquiry:

"Scuse me for asking instead of searching 6 million pages, but what's the ali rear upright of choice these days and what toe in ??"

Jacko


I thought the aluminium rear hub of choice was the Tamiya 1.5 degree upright. Lots of others buy as a hopup item for MO5 and MO3.

Perhaps I am misinformed.

Later,

Calvin.

The 1.5 Hub comes in the Pro kit.

Can someone please tell me what the part number is for the Tamiya (blue version) servo posts used for the MO3

I had a set and remember it had 2 screw holes per post on the verticle side when installed and one on top to anchor it to the chassis.

I just replaced the plastic steering link with a piece of graphite/carbon fiber. I won't get a chance to see if it will work till Tuesday. I found the plastic piece flexed too much. Any speculation as to what will happen?? I think it'll will give more steering consistancy, but I'm wondering if there is anything I've overlooked, or not taken into consideration??

Thanks

I take it you mean part B10 in the standard build? In which case I don't think you will notice much difference.

By my reckoning the biggest problem with the steering linkage is the bad fit of the posts it mounts on (part B3), with lesser issues caused by the free play in the step screws and the steering uprights. I don't think the actual moulded parts are excessively flexible.

I intend to try the hop-up steering parts on my car at some point. At the moment it is good in corners, but awful on the straights.

Another first for rc-mini. In a world exclusive, the first battle of the hyper-minis.

Two top-line, no holds barred FWD Mini kits take on each other. Only on rc-mini.net



The Tech Racing CF-R and the all new Xevo Triumph.

Hi, did I read correctly? M03 = 20.7, Xevo = 21.3, Tech = 21.6? So M03 is fastest? What wheelbase were they running? thanks.

tony gray: great report! if you suspect the CF-R has lots of wheel spin coming out of corners... do u notice excessive tire wear?

Hard to tell on the basis on a single race meeting.

That's only our guess at the moment, and to be honest I dont think that's the answer. If it was excessive wheelspin I think we'd hear it as the car is whisper quiet.
