Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

TYRES & INSERTS.

Someone earlier asked for suggestions for tyres / inserts for medium grip asphalt track.

Here is my experience from running my own MR4 Special, my son's TC3, and now my SD. We run rubber tyres exclusively, and temperatures here are always pretty hot.

TAKE OFF with Schumacher Grey insert. 27 lasts for ever and grips consistantly throughout. Grip not half as good with it's own blue or black moulded insert. 22 gives better grip, even in hot temperatures but does not remain as consistant over long use.

PITS. Probably the best all rounder. Again with Schumacher Grey insert. The D30 has more grip than both Take Offs but performance tapers off with wear and wear is not as good as Take Off. In the winter months we have even used D25. On a track with less grip in England (West London) we found the D25 worked best with it's own soft insert, even on a hot (by English standards) day.

SOREX. Tops for grip, but they don't half wear! Again found Schumacher Grey insert works best with Sorex 28 or 24. Son Josh does 2 x 5 minute heats on a set of 28s in modified. After that they are very thin. They are excellent when new, but performance tapers off with wear. On a really cold day the 24 works as well and at least lasts a couple of heats.

MO. I see you are into organising too. I know the feeling. I virtually run our club single handed.

Someone asked for picture of servo mod. See attachment.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Don't use internal spacers to force the shocks shorter than the springs will allow - you'll end up with no droop and strange handling as a result. I run large diameter tyres (schumacher minispikes, 66mm+ when new), and I can get the car down to about 4mm with the short shock ends and the standard mounting positions.

Found some new parts...

Team Suzuki steering uprights...



Team Suzuki rear hub carriers...



Team Suzuki top deck mounts (look good to me)...



Rayspeed shock pistons (looks like one has no holes - relying on flow around the edges I suppose)...

Ahh finally, blue goodies Anyone know if they are avalible yet, or when they will be avalible? I think the front steering knuckles will be a bad idea seeing as how many castor blocks break as it is with plastic knuckles, you're gonna be breakin a lot more.

When you rotated your servo did you drill a hole in your chassis? or did you use SErvo Tape?

drilled and countersunk holes in the chassis...
You will have to cut the inner ear of the servo in half to make it fit under the middle deck. and move the steering linkage to the left side and change to 180deg steering.
