We tried a different chassis, which was made by a german guy. It's a little bit easier to drive and more narrow.

But in the future I think HB will release a narrow lipo chassis. ;-)

The standard chassis works good!

Hey,

I was wondering in what situation would you use hole one on the front wishbones when positioning the shocks rather than 2 which most people seem to run?

What effect does this have on the cars handling?

Ty,

I'm geared around 6.6 with my 13.5, with a 34/115 combination (I thought I was geared higher than that!). I'm thinking that the smaller track in Lethbridge would be best with a gearing around 7 (or perhaps higher), so dropping a few teeth on the pinion would be the ticket...

Here's what I'm running on my Tekin, with respect to advanced timing:

Boost: 45
Start/End EPM: 5443/20016
Turbo: 10
Turbo Delay: .2
Turbo Ramp: 2.0

This is plenty fast on the carcar track, but I could certainly be more aggressive with the setup (shorter RPM range, ramp of 3.0), but I just didn't feel the need...

Based on the small size of the Lethbridge track, I doubt if Turbo will even be required.

I think you made a small building mistake. The FR and in the rear the front block are not the same! So you maybe tried to use the rear block in FR position and the FR block in the rear of the car ?

Hope you understand what I want to tell you.

Guys, just want to know if upgrading to alum rear uprights will equal the rear toe left and right? Mine has 3.5 deg on the left and 2.5 deg on the right. Also saw that 3racing also has alum rear uprights for cyclone which is half the price of HB made one and its also easy to get. Is this good?
