Patricks car is with the Audi body, Enneti light rims, KoPropo low profile, Ko spectrum receiver, the NimH battery and the personal transponder something around 1690gr.
We will have some additional weights as soon as we have some response about the weight.
We have enough space to add some weight, as so can see in the chassis, in the front it is already prepared to add a weight, and of course the battery tray could be replaced.
So we have the the lowest point of the car to add the weight !!!!
As soon as we know the medium drive ready weights from more cars we will do the weights.

I can say that this has been the best 1/10 chassis i have driven to date. I broke our local clubs track record by .2 of a second first time out kit standard. The car was ballistic.

I have driven most cars around today and coming from an Xray i wasnt expecting anything superior however I was mistaken. Build quality was excellent and drive ability was impressive.

Well done Shepherd

Default V10 Cost

Hey Novarossi, Give Jeff at Trackside a call ( 0738897918 ) as he is the Australian importer for the Shepherd and I know he has ordered a heap of them and they're due any time. He might have a ball park price for you.

Today the TRS nitro open race has started in Shanghai, China.
I'm overnight TQ with Fukuda only 0.03 behind me and Meen V 1.5 sec behind us over 5 min qualification. Tomorrow two more rounds followed by 45 minute final for the top 10.
I checked my car weight and it was 1655 gr.

These are my equipments:

KO Propo servo's 2368 (Normal profile)
2.4GHz receiver
Lipo 1100mAh battery
Blitz Altis body
60mm/62mm Matrix tyres
Orion pipe, Alpha engine
Regular air filter

So I must say the car is pretty light.
Most of the time you need to add extra weight.

Hey Jilles, this is Chris (Mr. X)
Can't make it to Shanghai, I am in freezing Beijing now!
Good luck.
Fukuda was there last year so he have some advantage but I am sure you will get better time tomorrow.

If all dry track and starting to get good traction, beware there may be traction roll in the final.

Hello guys,

Just small update about the race today.
Fukuda TQ with 19 laps in 5.15.9
Jilles 2nd with 18 5.01.1
Meen 3rd with 18 5.03.0

In the final it was a close battle between us three but after 10 min I ran out of fuel so the race was between Fukuda and Meen.
On the end Fukuda won by 12 sec in front of Meen and I was 4 laps down as I ran out of fuel twice!

Track was very nice and great thanks to Rick Wang for the organisation of the TRS race.

Set-up will follow later.

Jilles

Default Steering ackerman??

Can someone explain the forward and back position of the ackerman. Which is more agreesive and which is less aggressive?

At big flowing tracks, some would perfer a slower turn-in than diving in quickly as for a smaller tight track.

Hey,
well thats not that easy to answer !!
The ackerman effects more in the corner, not that extremely much in the first point of the corner. For the really first point of the corner i would say the front toe out and the car setup is more relevant. But in the corner the ackerman is the man.
To explain it simple, the more forward you are, the more aggresiv the car becomes in the corner, while you lose a little bit on exiting the corner !!?
So what you have to do is >>>> try it !
It depends also so much from your driving style and the complete car setup.
Try it, and do not forget to readjust the toe out inthe front after you changed the ackerman position !!! A common mistake wich will ruin the effect !!

regards

Alex

Thanks! I've seen the two positions on the T2009 and almost all setups I have seen have been back. On the RRR I run, at Kissimmee, because it is big and flowing, I would run the C position on newer car or the 10 ackerman which made the steering links longer. I consider the steering link as the radius of a circle and the shorter the link is, the more quickly the turn-in or the faster you get to full lock or quicker transtion to scrubbing speed. Being longer, it travels the same distance, but it slower to get to full lock therefore smoothes out or slows down how quickly the car transtions from going straight to turning and scrubbing spend at corner entry to mid corner. It seems to allow the car to maintain more of the corner speed and making each corner time a bit shorter.

I also like the smoother feel on my driving style.

Thanks for input!
