I bet Hara was building a wet car just in case.
Its very difficult to fully waterproof brushless systems in a flat chassis car, so using a tub chassis makes sence.
Also the plastic tub gives more grip due to flex also a great idea for the rain.

So why was he running it in the dry?

Have other people found this too? What's the solution? Is it just a case of lengthening the shock?
Can anyone help? I'm sure someone can guide me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,

I doubt hara can make it rain on queue, perhaps if you asked andy he could do it :P

Matt

Already answered it Flex
I am led to believe the track had been resurfsced and not that grippy, also the tyres are hard so maybe trying to generate more grip through flex and make the tyres work harder.

Personally, think of it this way. When using 5cells at 1500g it's a very easy way to add weight where required (down low)...

You could use a thicker chassis plate (which will weigh more), however the flex would then be way off. This way, he can use a heavier bottom plate, but with similar flex characteristics to a thin carbon plate.... simple really...

So,is the outdrives the only differences besides the turnbuckles?Or are there others?Need to get a comparison because I only race stock.Maybe 19 turn once in a while.Mario.

Hi guys

can anyone please confirm whether the pro-spec diff rings are the same as the Cyclone 12? I couldnt find an exploded view of the new diff, the pro-spec diff doesn't list rings as separate parts either... Soooo... does the pro-spec diff use #61627 as diff rings? Thanks!

Paul

As looking into the manual, seems that pro-spec uses those diff rings #61627.

You can check the manual here:
