With the 1-way, brakes for me usually is a big no-no. High speed 'coasting' suits this type of front end and over shootin' corners is a BIG problem for alot of peeps.
On that size track though, I would try both. The 1-way will probably win out & will yield lower motor temps.
hey JayBee have you tried the aluminum arms yet?

tamiya yellows are 13.33 lbs

hpi touring springs part# 6844 ( reds) are 13.3 lbs (but they feel a little softer than the tamiyas

ive been running pw's set up with the schumacher whites and it has been really good!! I think he used the tamiya yellows when he ran 5 cells( 51.8 instead of 53 ounces)

Not yet buddy. The traction at our track doesn't warrant it yet. I'll probably put 'em on just to see. The suspension is gonna come into play big tyme though Hmmm.....Vegas maybe

Is their a servo saver available for the Mi3? I have stripped out 2 servo horns recently due to some bad crashes. My car gets a weird pull to one side every once in a while when I crash and I have to trim the steering all over again.

What is the best way to fix this? I know the simple answer is not to crash but I was hoping that their was a mechanical fix. =)

Great day for Schumacher USA in Hawaii!

I made a couple of key changes to a set-up that Hewitt gave me, and the car was money. TQ'd GT by a lap. I now have a great starting point for folks running a tight, technical track. Thanks, Alan.

My motor went up after the 3rd lap, but the Tamiya 25T motors we run are junk. Can't wait until we go brushless!

The kimbrough 201 medium servo saver has worked well for me on foam and rubber for a long time. : )
