Check out the new alloy rear hubs...we just recieved some of the first batch...

Purpleonium is so sweet! they have a vertical ball stud design, with 2 separate mounting positions (inner and outer), ballstud can be shimmed up to raise rear roll centre in small increments..

I quickly measured the geometry in comparison to the std rear hubs, the inner most hole, without spacers equals the std R/C Height...

the main difference in geometry is an increased distance between the axle and outer Lower Hingepin, so that the hingepin sits closer to the wheel (like another manufacturers design which many drivers have opted to use =)...

These new hubs allow the car to rotate quicker, without sacrificing rear end grip. so I have been told, I'm yet to test them ontrack for myself.

The trickest part of their design is the plastic Hingepin insert that allows toe angle to be changed outboard included are 0, 1 and 2 degree inserts.

horn.

also the new T.L chassis is very nice...ultra stiff!...and very narrow~!..10mm less width than std, with cells moved back and all the way in towards the centreline of the chassis it has nice static balance, ..only 30 grams of weight was needed with my setup to get perfect pinpoint and tweakstation level.

The new chassis handled very nicely on track, very fluid no fuss transitioning, and held great cornerspeed due to less chassis flex over standard.

I felt it was easier to drive closer to the limit, more consistent and faster to boot.

I do miss the option of moving battery location, but so far so good.

AdrianM:

Does the Team run

U2781 - Speed Secrets Shock Mount
U2782 - 2.5mm Carbon Fixed Battery Position Teemu Chassis

exclusively or is there a condition when the stock setup is better?

My Mi2 is scheduled to arrive Wed after being backordered and I plan to run stock on asphalt until winter when I will go to the above setup for indoors but I was wondering when the stock setup may excel over the lower shocks and narrow chassis.

Thanks

The shock mount is new...we will use it as soon as we get them (2 weeks)

The Chassis is in use by almost all Euro Team members. At this time most US drivers prefer the Stock 2mm tray chassis in the Middle/Middle or 1 Step Forward/Middle positions. This is for High grip racing where most Euro racing is medium to low grip.

Also Teemu moves weight (to make the minimum 53oz) around on the car to get what he wants. Instead of moving the batts he will move his weight forwards or back to get more or less steering. Both are valid ways of achieving the same end.

At most club races no one weighs cars and everyone is under weight so I personally run an underweight car and move the batts.

Paul,

So are the Tamiya shockes better on all surfaces then the kit ones? And which would you recommmend for running on the rug? Thanks and congrats.

Also which chassis would you recommend for carpet?
