Charlie mine is working great. I am on foam and no 1-way now though. I got some other ideas for Brion also after Carpet Foam Mod this weekend.

Want a nipple with your car since you baby it so much Charlie . We need to give you a whip and some black leather

Hey Jason...on the original blank setup sheet one of the "rebound stoke"s is supposed to be spacers for the wheels. Tamiya made a typo, that's why I just put the same measurement for both.

Did you see how I did my droop (rebound stroke) measured the way xray does theirs.

I really hope this helps.

It'll be fun...the more the merrier. With that setup I gave you, think push...because it does, in a good way. Easy to drive and confidence inspiring but you can break the rear end lose if you need to get some over-rotation by cranking the wheel and slamming brake (20% with one-way and 70% with spool) hehe

Oh yeah, and get one of them penguin backing plates. They're a lot lighter than the aluminum one

Hi Guys, have a Tamiya Sponsored race coming up. But after messing ard with setup today, i noticed Sorex 36R(Hard insert) on the rear and Sorex 32R (medium insert) on the front provided the best combination. I was wondering if anyone has any advise on how to 'relate' this to Tamiya Type A or B2 tyres? Cos Tamiya is the only tyres we can use.

Thanks
Jeff

Hey IDM, ive just finished building my new Evo3 SL too!

The internal ratio is 2.60 (correction)

Are you entering the 2003 Aus Nationals??? in stock? Use 30.22mm - 31.5mm for the rollout with a monster stocker for Eastern Creek.
