Default Shells

Going to be getting one of these soon and wonder what shell would be the best for outside on tarmac running 19T? Aimed more at the UK drivers.

Thanks

Tony,

I think it will mainly be the Mazda6 or Stratus3 AP, maybe the Rayspeed Accord, although this is extremely stable.

If your not running to this seasons BRCA rules then a Ride Accord (can be found in the UK under GM packaging or from lots of overseas online shops) is an awesome body, the stock wing is pretty sketchy though, if you use Ride Accord try the Yokomo GW3.1 wingset you get 2 in the 3.1 set; straight wing more rear grip, curved more steering/rotation.

in general, for asphalt outdoor, which is the best between front spool+center one-way and front spool and solid one-way?

It depends on the track layout and your own driving style. If you like to brake hard and gun the car point to point, then go with the spool and locked center layshaft. If the track layout permits, and you are comfortable driving more "smoothly" a one-way will usually be the fastest.

yeah ride accord seems to be the ticket for rubber tires on asphalt.
you may also try the flap wings, those are apparently what HB team drivers use, or so i was told.

now that i've started running ride bodies, i find it painful to run protoform anymore

make sure you get the right versin of the Ride Accord.
2 versions are available.
Type A: perfect for carpet.
Type B: Added downforce perfect for outdoor asphalt.

The YOkomo Accord I was told has similar handling charactericstics at the Ride Stratus MK-III.

The Flap wings are pretty exteme, some times the HB drivers use them, the Type-R type (Hara use at TITC last year, i think Andy use in the UK BRCA series last year some times too) this wing is quite a narrow width, to conform to the old JMCRA rules and with its shape too, it gives lower rear end grip and excellent steering.

I did not really get on with this wing on Accord, a total treat on the Yokomo Type-E though, silly steering but this is another body thats not legal in the UK, i guess as its not been submitted.

one thing I might want to add from running a spool. the down side of running a spool is it would creates a lot of stress in the Drive train, in turn it would shorten the live expectancy of the drive train.

regards the centre layshaft how much side to side movement is everyone factoring in ? do you guys give it no movement and pack it out with washers or do u leave a little movement and let it find its own postion whilst running ???

Just adjust the rear laysgaft pulley,slide it across abit. Dont jam it up you want a little bit of movement from side to side,but not loads.
