Run the inserts that come with the Shimizu tires, easy peasy

What glue is good for the Pit Shimizu Rubber?


I tried to glue like the youtube video put the glue on lip put rim in tire and spin rim alittle, but on one tire the glue dried too quick and grabbed rim and really messed up my tire


I used Losi CA

We had our first UF1 houston trial run this past saturday!
I ended up annihilating the track record from 22.5 to 21.6 with my 2010 Mantisworx Fq01(some of you may remember that chassis!).
THIS IS ONE OF THE COOLEST VIDS THAT I HAVE SEEN IN A WHILE MADE BY IPEARL!! YA GOTTA WATCH THIS AND CHECK OUT MY SAVE AT 1:55!!

Chris Jones and i had our typical battle throughout the day, we tend to go back and forth every two weeks! This day i was on my game! I know he is in the garage preparing for this thursday! I may re release the FQ, its REALLY good right now, superb balance and very agile. F1 is HUGE in Htown right now, twice a week every week!

Looks like he doesn't use body clips, he uses velcro to hold the body on.

seals the under tray to the body, car has a functioning diffuser and if you look closely at the front wing i made some gurney flaps. At the end of the high speed straight with the diffuser the car developed a push that was not there before. I tested it back to back, so I made the gurney flaps to achieve some aero balance and it actually works very well! I can actually hold the throttle into the turn now. you could hear the front wing scraping at the end of the high speed straights all day long! i need to make a wing brace now.

I figured as much about the diffuser from the flat floor but didnt think of the velcroed on body. I had been considering that for my touring car simply for looks. BTW, ifyou want to improve the diffuser you need to add a sort of skity on it. Your irs car had a nice skirt leading to the diffuser, im sure you have the materials to do similar. Im always surprised how well aerodynamics works in rc cars. I used to be of the "its only for looks" camp until i tried a drift car with 2 bodies and saw the back to back difference the wing made at drift speeds.

Aero does make a difference for sure, right now the car is really low so i need to find some material that is thinner than what i had on the IRS car. On the IRS car and actually all of them is getting enough front downforce while still having a front wing that wont break on impact. As you can see the track on that video is fast. The only difference from my last outing (22.6) is the front wing and motor but the track was in better shape so in reality i think the aero package was good for about 4 tenths overall, the rest was track conditions and motor.
