Has anyone tried the aluminum steering blocks? I thought about them, but I'm pretty sure I would actually break parts instead of stripping steering blocks.

I'm running aluminum steering knuckles and c-hubs. No parts bent or broken so far.

There's just something awesome about how this car looks and how it performs.



I hate my wiring and will be redoing it this week sometime, but is there a better place to put the transponder?

I found low grip asphalt & carpet 700cst silicone oil is the best.

At the ETS round i believe the team guys were using 2000cst and 3000cst silicone oil. But the carpet traction was very high.

When racing on higher grip surfaces i reckon i would go up to somewhere between 1000cst and 2000cst silicone oil.

Using Associated fluids by the way

Some of the Yokomo team drivers use yokomo blue springs front and yokomo pink springs rear. This is the opposite way round to standard...

I beleive this would work on some carpet surfaces, has anyone tried this?

harder spring in the rear help more stable on power..softer in the front will help more steering ..
