ive cut away the thin recessed areas of both front and rear chassis braces so they only have a bridging affect or small amount of flex, taking them out all together was a bit to much also diffs are 7/7/3

Drew I also thought the stock shock oil 30 was too little as the car was very twitchy, I took it up to 40wt all round. Later today I'll test it on the track. I will make some videos and post it.

Tabushi I'll never drop my X1. The X1 is my no1 car.
The M1-B is just a second buggy to try out. IMO the X1 is a better handling buggy allround.

My X1 is kitted with Super BB's and OS Speed.
The M1 is fitted with a Jammin engine.

Didnt get a chance to get to the track over the weekend, had car trouble. Will do a track comparison next time.

dubdeuce:
I am not in NJ. I really cannot say where parts for this car is available in NJ.
Sorry.

Hey folks, I had the chance to run the M1B Turbo again on Tuesday night. It was an indoor track, well watered!!! As the track dried, it was very tacky! Lots of traction. The car was AWESOME! The drivelines are impressive, very smooth and quick. The car has tons of steering, turns when you want to! The low CoG really is nice, when you consider that the swaybars are more for show than anything else. On this tacky track, I really didn't have much traction roll, thanks in large part to the CoG. The first time I drove (about a month ago?), I broke the wing. I installed a Team Cobra wing-Sweet-Very Stable! This car flies level and soaks up the landing, just to go over another triple. I am running a 3 port Nova. and the car was quicker than Losi's with 5 ports. When all is said and done I like this car.

However, I hate to bad mouth this car, but after two nights of playing I have to replace more parts! I never had this problem when I was driving a Mugen-or so I think. Its the same problem as before. The front dog bones are too short. And the outdrives-these lightened pieces of !@#$. Team Magic-What Is Up- I thought you had the original problems fixed. Hence the reason I decided to purchase your car! I Don't want to sound like I am ranting, but after I spend as much money on your car as I would have if I had bought a Kyosho. cha-ching.


I like the way this car drives!!
Now all I need is diffs that don't leak, dogbones that stay in the outdrive, outdrives that don't break, and shocks that were made for the front not the rear, longer adjusters for front upper arms, and a better attitude!

All I know is this is not right.

Yes, the pins are in the lightened area. They started out in the slot and ended up here. On one of the cups you can see where it broke. Stress Fracture?

Yes, the pins are not in the outdrives right. They are currently in the lightened part, they should be in the slots that are slightly larger than the pins themselves.

You're right. Drew has the pins in the wrong place. Pins go in the slots. Of course you will snap the outdrive with it flopping around in that big gap.

I've been doing a bunch of testing to find a sensible shock setup for this car. I am up to 30wt oil with 1 x 1.5mm hole in the front and 2 x 1.5mm holes in the rear with 50wt oil. Car was much better. The car is too lightly damped out of the box in my opinion.

I'll report back more after xmas when I our track gets up and running again.

Drew, if you compress the front suspension of the car completely, does one end of the UJ pin hang out of the drive cup?

Also, the diffs leak because of the grub screw used to "tension" the diff. Locktite it into position and diffs will stop leaking.

What do you mean by "longer adjusters for front upper arms"??

New shocks and towers have transformed my M1B-T from to

Now I just need to find the ideal spring/oil combo.
