Yep crabboy I have the white gasket and what are X rings. Thanks for the help.

Elliot why do you prefer a lower wind motor with no boost.

Wow fast motors, our track is mid size and the popular choice here is a 5t LRP occta wind, again with no boost.

One question for you Elliot can you make the cars drive out of corners better/less wheel spin through car set up, if we were to use a 4t it would wheel spin from one corner to the next, what's your tips.
Our track is medium traction def not high traction.

I think if you use an SP motor, you could try 4.0 or 4.5, if you use like an Orion motor, use 4.5 I think you should use the standard 205 mod software

@ charl mac
I find that normally, no boost software with a lower wind motor has a smoother feeling than boost.

However, maybe you can try both as my Orion speedo has a turbo feature on the mod software which I use

@crabboy
For a small track, an LRP 5.0 should be ok
you can make the car drive better out of corners by using a little more rear toe (like 3.5) but then you will lose a little steering in the corner. It can be important to make sure the car isnt too overpowered You could also turn the speedo punch down maybe so that the bottom end feeling is softer but still with good top speed.

@kiloolli
Good to hear that you have found the tweak problem
Unfortunately I can't make the ETS Netherlands as I have many exams. But I will be in Andernach if you are there?

Hello,

I am quite happy with the Spec-R Diffs. Only one out of 4 is leaking a little bit.

When there are traction problems, I am hardening the rear oil to approx 1000cst. Last weekend I drove 1000cst with a 5.0 octa, and it felt quite good.

Anyway, I am also waiting for the Tamiya Diffs. I think they will be a little bit earlier available than the revised kits.

See you in Apeldoorn!

Yes HPI springs are a little bit bigger then the tamiya spings. There is a fix for it Tamiya has new Larger Diameter Retainers. Part number 42192

Im still waiting on my spings. This is what Kendal wrote

I've tested the HPI silver spring today, I noticed a little more speed in high speed corner, nothing more, nothing less. Well, seems to be better anyway, so I keep them

In medium speed corner, the rear end tends to slip, any tips ? Box set up, 1,5 rear camber, HPI spring.

Thanks

i's still new in TC... need to know this...
1. about electronic configuration, why not place the ESC after servo (from front to rear) then receiver? i think placing more front will give better weight distribution and car more stable... (hope elliot also can give some comment)
2. elliot... what u mean by power steering?
