i wondered if it was `trends` at the time ,like a few years back it was `long` wheelbase & now it is `short` wheelbase

with a lot of new cars going even faster now then before i wondered `why` they are much faster
car design is still the same layout ,2 belts,motor in the back (ish) battery`s down the side , shocks still designed the same way , stock motors been this way for years ,tyre compound`s haven`t changed a great deal

with all these shock angle`s ,springs ,roll centre`s ,roll bars & wot not & all along it was the wheel base adjustment that changed the car
except X-ray they have had short wheelbase from the word go on there T1r

what`s the JRXS

Quick one.....On the Cyclone,you can shorten the wheelbase by moving the rear arms forward at the mounts,or you can move the hubs forward on the arms.Has anyone tried a comparison between the 2?Any ideas on the possible differences/or not? Tried it myself and I'm not sure of the differences,if any.The track was cold and the foams get real gummy(ozite on concrete).Thanks,Mario.

Anyone successfully shorten the wheelbase of a team magic E4 chassis? I'm trying to get mine to 10 inches. Its about 3/16 of an inch too long at the moment.
