Personal preferance really. Hara generally always uses outer hole, at the same race Andy used shorter rear link inside and outside! so just try it and see if you like it. Long rear link should be a touch harder to drive, but have more corner speed. Short link has more mid corner steering and the car should be easier to drive

The car is easier to drive with the outside hole on the hub, gives more on throttle steering (less camber gain), more corner speed etc. That is what they have been using for asphalt also.

Hi, ,guys great thread, i┤ve been reading it for a while now. I hope someone can help me with this. Today I went to my lhs for a bottle of 35wt shock oil. The guy gave me a bottle of 350 weight (hot bodies brand). The obvious question is. Are they both the same or did the guy take me for a fool. Thanks in advance.

Oils measured in hundreds should be equivalent across different brands but the old 'wt' measurement wasn't so the 350 could be equivalent to anywhere between 25 and 45 of your old oil. I'm sure if you mention your old brand on here someone could link you to a chart so you can get a better idea

Dude, its a dang valley of drugs here. Went to Eugene last week to pick up my Volkswagen, it wasn't that bad, just lots of weed (College, lol) I feel like Portland is better than both these places.

Hi,
it's no aftermarket chassis produced in great numbers.
I designed this chassis last september and got the first three prototypes ready for the ETS Opener in Kastellaun/Germany.
I switched to this chassis already in the training heats and had a pretty good feeling because grip and balance (improved position for the heavier 6200 LRp Lipo) have been much better compared to the kit chassis.
After taking a close look at the performance of my car, Freddy and Dominik (the german HB Teamdrivers) also switched to "my" chassis an used it since then
At this years ETS final in Andernach, Hara and Andy had a look at my chassis and i asked Hara if he would test the chassis for me and give me some feedback and his opinion about the chassis... (You just need a world class driver to get really good test results....)
Looks like the perfomance of the chassis is even better than i expected ...
regards
Marcel
