I highly doubt our esteemed Mr Lessard is a chess aficionado.

PWNS/PWND is a common derogatory chastisement for fellow online gaming participants who have been hastily dispatched by a highly skilled player.

Or in racing terms (and admittedly being captain obvious), Kling I'm sure put multiple laps on my boy Adam.

I just found a fix for something I was continually finding annoying on my car. I would have to work hard to get the hexes off from the CVD's. I have steel and the new alloy cvd,s and no matter how well I cleaned the inside of the hex once I got it of, it never went back on easily like when the car was new. I discovered the aluminum in the hex was distorting and kinda mushrooming, creating a binding when I tried to put it on or take it off the cvd. So I took a new exacto and beveled the inside radius of the hex. After a little work on all four, I can now install and remove all four hexes easily again! We'll see how long it lasts, but I am hoping the rounded edge will last a while.

Mine was fairly "analog" if yours was dialed.

One a side note, how did you finish Sweet Jerome?

I haven't raced in a week. I only had time for a complete teardown/rebuild and tried some different things with the shocks & roll centers. Car is MONEY. These 13.5 Schuies are killing the 10.5 times though. On this particular layout, 10.5's easily overpower the track. 13.5's are deliciously more driveable.
Racing for me will be this Wednesday

Help required.

I have a fairly good setup for 10.5 rubber/asphalt.I like the amount and sped of steering when using a thin front roll bar, but this is too much for the back end which likes to get out of line.

I only have around 85% steering travel to help stop the CVD's from binding.

Things calm down when I fit the 1.4mm roll bar but this reduces some of the steering.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what to look for/change to get me some of the steering back without compromising the back end?

Thanks
Skiddins

Is the rear end stepping going into the corner off power or is it stepping out middle to exit on power?

Oh man, you must be joking... 10.5 OVERpowering something? At last race I had a dumping problem with 3.5 (old batts), so I tried a 5.5 sintered. Even that was boring as hell, you could eat a hamburger on every straight (although laptimes only dropped some 2 tenths on a 10 second lap). I can't imagine how 10.5 can be overpowered anywhere besides on ice.
