I theory side dams for wings make sense. Like the tips on a modern jet plane, winglets reduce the vortex caused by the low pressure drawing air around the sides of the wing, hence improving wing efficiency and thus reducing drag.

I've not quite yet mastered a method of gluing them on though and most often it's not worth the effort at club meets and the rules are strict and it's easy to cut a marshal with them or have them knocked off.

I had similar problem, it was steering expo went to 40 fixed my issue, be careful on some radios + 40 will slow servo reaction on others it's - 40

The wing endplates make the wing more efficient, it's like making the wing wider.
This allows to either make the wing lower, reducing drag or mounting the body more forward, increasing overall downforce.
Most mount the body more forward, up to 10mm and move the wing all the way to the back and use wing endplates. This gives you maximum downforce within what is allowed.

For mounting the wing endplates I use two methods:

-Quick method (on track), high quality double sided tape.
-Slow method, shoegoo and a staple. This is the best, but the shoegoo needs 24h to cure.

Nice tip with the staple, and yes, shoogoo takes a lot longer if sandwiched in lexan.

Default 1st Swiss Nats Championship

This weekend was held the 1st race of Swiss Championship.
As I did not were there for fridays practice session, I just had the saturday to find out the right setup. Started the 1. qualifing I wasn't really happy as the car suffered of too much understeering. The change to a harder diff on the rear the problem was solved and the car was way better to drive but the rear was a bit lose. Screwing out the bulkhead screws it changed the handling magically, now the car was very fast.
Semi Final A I ended with a 3rd place from 7th starting position. The race was perfect, I could push and push the car, from the start on till the end the lap times were constant and it felt very good to drive.
The A-Main was nearly the same. Having had two very good driver in the final (Kurzbuch and Hächler) I managed to hold the 4th place till the last 2 minutes.
The rear right tyre was on blank rims so I had to give up.
I finished with a 7th place and I'm really happy with this result!

What receiver pack are you using?

Do you mean battery or receiver box?
Box is from a MTX5 and battery LRP life :-)

You can contact Nikolaj from Rc-netshop.dk , he has a carbon part that fits the Mugen box directly on the radio plate.
Mail him on nikolaj(a)rc-netshop.dk

What's the difference between the shore ratings on the shock absorbers??

It's the hardness of the membrane.

The softer membrane will create more overall traction but might slow down reaction times. Good for low traction tracks or big-open tracks.
The harder membrane will make the car react faster, but generates a little less traction. Good for small tracks with fast direction changes (chicanes, hairpins).

Always wanted to try remove the bulkhead screws, you are talking about the long screw that holds the 2speed holder tower with the rear part right? Where did you see the must benefits off power entry steering or on power?

When I was working on holding the rear less nervous, in the semi final I tried this option to race without the screws. I was really happy wiht that change.
Mostly it benefits this change in mid/exit corner and when in on-throttle situation.

Next thing I want to try is the shock setup from DJ Apolaro. I'm not sure, but the 4.6 front spring rate seems to be very hard for our tracks (with low traction grip). But I will give them a chance too :-)

Gives more on-throttle traction.
I never use them in my cars.

Check Dario's front part how much is set for flex any one tried this setup

Even on the rear he removed the screw that connects the diff tower to the 2sp tower
