Hows the driving styles from MM to RM anyone explain it well.

Next weekend will be my 2nd race on loose dirt/gravel, the first one did not go well spinning out all the time and having to drive real slow but I do want to try it again.

Heres the track that I ran on

Tips.

MM battery forward or back?
RM batt F or B
Extra weight anywhere?
RM3 Battery Middle, and better tires, your car seemed to come undone once the track blew out. That is not a mid motor track at all. You have to drive a mid-motor car like a 4-wheel drive car, lots of steering, but if not adjusted right (I have had a B44, Kyosho ZX5-FS, B44.1) you'll have the back coming loose, you can either get the Cream Brasss weight and hope it fixes it, or go with what works on dirt which is RM3, and the right tires. That track looks alot like The cactus Classic track which requires Jconcepts Bar Codes front and rear in Orange if there is a groove formed or blue which is their all around compound.

On the site it is a typo
No high traction blue groove/carpet no mid motor. Save yourself the heartache.

Sonics are blistering fast if geared correctly, and run very cool to the touch. you will not be dissapointed, as far as Speed Controls go, check out the Orion R10Pro, even the $159.00 90A version is solid as a rock. Best budget speed control I have ever used, and It handles my 8.5 easily. Not strained at all.

Hello, i need to know if anyone is interested in a chassis for the DEX210 in stainless steel with 100 grams more than original, i've raced the prototype this weekend with a huge win, TQ and 1st place.

We are starting to develop some parts for competition, the brand will be named "NP racing"

I think a better option would be a +8mm molded chassis, the car is heavy enough as it is. It does look good though, but take into account pricing. A new Metal chassis is $30.00 bucks, if you can come in under that price point for what you have, I think you might have a winner. But try to lighten it, not make it heavier.

I like my Finnisher body very very much. Great steering and allows me to push the buggy alot harder then stock.

Hey, no I have not. I made my own 1/10 CF wing way back with this kit

http://www.eastbaycomposites.com/.

Now I just ordered from hobbyking.com the 1.5mm CF sheet, cannot beat 3$ intl shipping. Eventually I will make a CF brace for sure though, its bugging me the turnbuckles are not parallel to the side pods they are angling in to the gearbox heheh weird OCD.

+1 on the jconcepts. I have stopped buying proline. That buggy body is an overpriced POS. I have one and its very thin and flimsy compared to stocker and the jconcepts (plus the paintjob turned out bad so threw it away).

My wheel screw keeps turning inside the hubs when trying to take front wheel off. Took off hub and both screws are turning on each end of axle. I can get axle out of holder. Any advice?
