Hi,

How does it effect the car when shortening or lengthening the camber links front or back ?

What does thicker or thinner shims do on the roll bar links ?

Also how does changing the F/F bracket do ?

Thanks.

Just returned home from TITC 2012, what an event! Finished 17th overall in Modified, car was really good but did traction roll if it was pushed super hard when the grip came up. The whole HB team all used different setups on their cars but there was 7 cars in the top 20 so a great result Things are definatly looking good for the future as there were mannnnny new pats being tested

The race was another great learning experience for me, and has given me even more confidence returning to Australia now knowing that I could battle against the worlds best and even beat a few. If anyone wants my setup send me a pm with an email address as the file is too big to post on rctech

Cheers,

Antoni

The team where testing more new chassis, top decks, centre layshafts, gear diffs along with the other new TCXX parts. I think it would be a silly move considering they have Shin, Teemu, EC Kim etc now, and Hara himself told me that they are still going to be testing new parts.

Ahhh... Caretti, not only is he one half of a stormingly fast pit crew, also seemingly quite good at changing chassis plates (3 in one day was the record!), either that or just plain indecisive

Thank you for the update.

My biggest problem with HB is that they bring out new parts but give you no idea of what they were designed to do. The loyal customer has to search out the information on forums like RC Tech and ASK/beg for an explanation !

+1 Even though I'm a historical HPI/Hot Bodies customer, I'm a bit surprised by the amount of support. Had I known this and liked orange vs purple or blue anodizing, I would have gone the Xray or even TC6 route...
