Second, the 6th part of Hara's building tips is up on Mirage Japan.

new servo mounts look nice
nice tip to cut down on interference and tweak by spacing the servo up, looks like the new mounts help out with that.


I hope they pick gold for the world champion edition, that way rheinhard wont feel lonely with his gold tamiya

In my expirience, running more inboard toe out on the front makes it more responsive/aggressive into corners and give less mid to exit steering. Wheras less makes it less responsive/smoother into corners and gives more mid to exit steering.

I usually opt for 2 degrees when running rubber on carpet, but i suggest trying it out yourself and select which feels the best for you.

Hope that helps,

Phil.

the more degree pivot block you used on the front will having more agreesive cornering you will have the less degree pivot block you used the more stability front you will have. basically because carpet already have a lot of traction and it create a lot of steering to your car so the less degree you will used. if you still not clear what i say you can go to HPI Pro 4 manual see the page 32 it have tell you the difference of the degree block.
