Wow. I just used a front one-way for the first time tonight and what a difference! I had steering out the kazoo on a med-long carpet track.

My setup:
Front:
2 deg caster
0 deg kickup
0 deg toe
70 wt oil
yellow spring
#2 piston
middle hole for shock mount
5mm ride height
upper inner camber mount

Rear:
0 deg anti squat
3 deg toe in
middle wheelbase
anti roll bar
60 wt oil
purple spring
inner hole shock mount
upper inner camber mount

battery in front
front one-way

Hpi red inserts
pit shimizu 30's in the front
25's in the rear.
paragon all the rear, half the front
6.35 fdr on a P2k

Just thought I would share my setup with you guys and hear some feed-back!
Thanks.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Interesting one on wheels.

We use Proline exclusively. We've tried most others. The Axis is strong. The Velocity even stronger. And they're both pretty light compared to others.

And yes Corse, I re-use mine too. That's another advantage.

I've been playing with my dragster again recently. Pity I don't have enough time. We've got a 1/4 mile - real quarter not 1/10th down to 14 seconds with a terminal speed of 85mph with our 1/10th dragster. 9 cells - 8 turn single. it's fun!

Must get back to my real race car now. Just received the new camshafts and will put them on today.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Ahh. I've never tried them on anything with hard boundaries. This is the track we race on... (by the way, when any of you are in the area, be sure to check it out!)

How do you think the TC3 is going to do overall in the Snowbird Nationals? I heard that the xxx-s is on fire.

Should do good. We will have a couple cars in the A for sure.

Kinwald's car is really, really good. That guy knows how to tune a car. It's pretty frustrating going into a race (even the club races) knowing he's gonna just go out and lay the smack down...

But, that's why he is who is he...

Tony, have you tried a little (well, or maybe much) of laxant on the Kinwald's Coke? LOL!!!!

Eliminate your competition!!

> Very nice track, I can't cut the corner in that track.

I just found out that Sanyo NiMH cells are much bigger and heavier than NiCd cells.
What gives?

Why should we race with NiMH cells?

I also found out that my trusted cheap Radio shack packs are almost as same size as NiCd cells and slightly heavier than NiCd cells but much lighter than Sanyo NiMH cells.

I hope I can get a scale to get the numbers.

Very interesting isn't it?

I'm now suddenly leaning on Sanyo RC2400 cells for the race.
Punchier, lighter, smaller... (big headache to maintain though)

What you guys think?

Could you sneak his setup and post it here?
Or is it copyright protected?
Maybe he also is reading this.

RCRUV > What kind of charger do you have will depend on what kind of cells to purchase. I still use 2000/2400 and they are great are very easy to mainitain. I just purchased a 16x5 and will be buying 3000 soon

I think that track is in Tenn. but i am not sure, i thought someone said that is where it is located.

I think that if you believe 2400 Nicads are a headache to maintain you should definitely stay as far away from NIMH as you can... NIMH are a MUCH bigger pain to maintain than Nicads ever were.
