If your track is only 46x22mm and 2.8-3.5 Mtr infield widht, I must admit it that it was not so impressing. Considering that my kit is being RTR on Friday and like Pyramid said that still very very much new things and combinations that we should try.
I still managed to finish second in our local Sunday race (A main 45 minutes).
(believe me that i was only the lucky one, the other fast guy did not make it through finish)
After spending 1 gallon with this car, this is what I found:
- So exciting, coz there are so much "kungfu inside" this car that waits to be discovered.
- Rene/Julius/... was right. the car seems so light to drive. About acceleration, i was competing with other cars that equipped with 7.3~7.6 1st gear ratio and I almost forgot that im only using stock gear ratio.
- Im not sure wether stronger material or better constrution, but this snake handling does not change after having some T-boned and couple of airshow.
- Handling balance is very well, tire wears after 45 min is almost the same.(same shore, no split for start).
Im not giving my setup, coz Im not so sure yet.
I do notes : highest position of upper front arm ; upper position of lower rear arm and shortest position for upper rear arm is a good starting point to make a balance setup in small tight track.
For those whom hates serpent, my advice (wise one) ; just go buy and drive this car you will improving your setup skill and knowledge by reading the setup book and apply to your car.
Then sell them again if you dont like it, you wont feel regret with the knowledge youve got.
For serpent die hard who drive 705 with modded front arm, changing the upper front arm position to hiighest will makes a same feeling with make a new hole in 705. Except the outside camber did not change when the car is leaning, which is better cornering when you slam your car into a hairpin.
Look forward to hear any other input from you guys...
