I kinda like that Marcos shut the guy down. A lot of threads here spin off into non sense and arguments.

The Mods on Helifreak and RunRyder are way more draconian. Mention any thing the slightest bit off topic and you get warned, suspended and banned if you keep it up.

For example, I would get a PM warning got this very post on a Heli forum.

Back on topic!

Well, my car is ordered, now the wait.

These chassis mounted droop screws are going to be interesting as to how they work.

Is the new non-c hub with the bearings heavy, would be interesting to weigh them against the current style.

This car is very tempting but I think I'm going to wait to hear some reviews before I make a jump.

The CF arms are amazing looking but how will they hold up to normal, not pro use, wear and tear. If you have to purchase additional arms to adjust rear toe, how much will they cost?

I know there is parts support through internet outlets, but I need to check with my LHS to see what kind of support they can get. I'm used to carrying every spare part I'd usually need but at least my LHS can get Tamiya parts. I'm not sure on the Schumacher parts though...

Overall the car looks amazing, if it works as well as it looks I may have to get a new ride!

The new Schumacher gear diffs will be interesting. They should be better then the Spec-R they are awful.

If the arms and hubs etc are to the quality of the current CX/CXL ones there shouldn't be too much of an issue, I use the med flex ones and they are damn hard to break, in 2 years I have only broken about 4 and I have had some hard hits. I've had more bent pins than anything else.

The hubs are most likely going to take the brunt of the force, with no C-hubs, and not much flex in the arms to take some of that away, I think the hubs might be the weak link.

Will have to wait and see. Doesn't mean I am going to deliberately test the theory though.

You just proved his point. Bully is an apt description. Captain America needs to address what gwhizz brought to everyone's attention. If I have to start a new thread on that subject alone I will.


Back to the car. Working with CF in my profession the CF arms give me some concern on longevity. I worry they will be too stiff and start to separate between plies after a couple hits. Especially if your running mod.

He can bring anything about the car he wants to people's attention... what he can't do is insult people and call people names. If you bury insults into a post, and/or come right out and call people "dip$%#$s"... then your post is going to get deleted, edited, or some other form of correction like it states in the rules. It's not that hard. That is the type of "off-topic post" I was referring to.

I wonder if they will then come up with frp or s1 arms in that case. Bit like the medium arms for the mi4s.

Not really liking the idea of changing arms to change toe though. The jury's still out and all that until we hear reports from real life drivers and not mega reflexed factory drivers.
