@ korey:
what happend, when i shorten or lenght the shocks (e.g. from 65 to 63,5mm)?!

thanks in advance.
chris
In my experience, the shorter shocks make that end of the car a little more planted and stable. Usually i notice it most upon entry into the corner and in the middle of the corner. Longer will feel more "floaty" and can be an advantage in higher grip conditions just to free the car up a little bit. You can also try a shorter front and a longer rear if you want a little more rotation in the middle of the corner too!!!

Hope that helps some.

Default Question for all my teachers!

Hi guys
how to prepare the new tires (just unpacked) before a race on carpet?
Simply degreased and cleaned, or need to use rough paper or something else to prepare them?
Thanks so much

Also what I am guessing are the correct parts to convert the drivetrain using Cyclone TC belts. Hopefully I will have a diff that doesn't leak and is concentric
How did your ver II tamiya diff work out with the tcx??

It should work .... but the differential Tamiya uses pulleys 37, then you should replace the front pulley of the spool, use the belts of the TC and replace rear axle shafts with Tamiya ... I prefer to use R-Spec .

The Savox is compatible with Futaba (I use both), so you can use any servo horn, I use Tamiya with 3Racing aluminum horn.

worked ok, I am having a bushing machined so I can make more that are true. But the tam diff is 10x better than the spec r I had. Only problem is all the parts to switch. But worth it if you modify the hb spool, the spec r diff I got was extra crappy with nothing right on it so if your going to go there just shoot me the spool and I can make the mods if your not inclined to do it. For the front belt I ended up using a second tensioner on the chassis plate out of spare parts. Tam diff is MUCH smoother than spec r, 1500 in tam diff feels like ~1000 in spec r. Word has it that there is quite a bit of variation however. Pm Korey for the whole explanation lol.

Hope this helps

ditto - I have both the shorter and taller 3Racing arms and perfer the shorter one (I think it's 13mm vs 18mm tall)

but this setup works great!! it's the Tamiya heavy duty set, they make it in black and white
