going to test the car out friday evening at groningen so i will see what it goes like against the Xrays

the car has come from one of the "team drivers" so i am guessing it is set up allready , will check it on my set up guages tommorrow evening when i set the telemery up on my DX3S also

will keep you updated as i set about the Nationals and the Euros in holland later in the year
Eric has a lot spare parts.
Also a lot of HPI parts will fit.
www.rcdiscounter.nl has also parts.

I must make some sheets digital.

The ARP is at his basic setup already very good.

The car is not yet released. We are hoping end of May beginning of June. Send us an email at [email protected] and we'll keep you posted.

Thanks,

it was good but i have loads of steering and it was a little twitchy on the straight

but still i set my fastest ever lap 100ths of a second and it felt easy

set your rolcenter in the front a bit higher as you have to much steer.
Or create some more grip in the back.

can you send me your setup?
I can't scan but i'm making a digital setup sheet.

i have little or no rear grip when going into lefts !!

the car is set up as per the top team america set up for asphalt rubber

the problem is when i come off power into a left bend the rear wants to swap , i have to put the power back on to control the car

i have adjusted the droop to try and compensate but no better

also a friend runs one at the euro's and he adds 25g of weight to the right front of the car , i have tried but still no better

please help !!!

What is your setup?

Put the car on a set-up system and make sure the rear toe is the same on both sides.. ( I had almost a degree difference ) I had this problem and went to the optional separate type mount and it solved it..

Hope this helps.

found the spacers are all differant sizes
1.5mm left under upper arm inner joint
2mm right under upper arm inner joint
4mm right in front of suspension arm
3mm left in rear of suspension arm

i have set it AGAIN by the TOP racing USA site and will test after my holidays to the uk

there is no wonder it didn't drive nice

i have the optional seperate arm mounts on the car , but there is small spacers under the mounts which i have just removed is this ok ???

I bought the optional spacers that go under both sides of the optional mounts and that is worth every penny.....

anyone know how many teeth the front and rear belts have for the different pulley combinations ???
Need belts urgently for the 33t/17t pulleys.

also what would the benefits be of going to a larger rear pulley ie: 47t
I am preparing 3 cars at the moment.
1 is for mod, 1 for 13.5 and the 3rd for 17.5.
currently running the 33t/17t pulleys on the mod car.
