My car has a tweak that I can't seem to get rid of. I've tried almost everything.

Thanks johnbull for the info. I actually have my xxx-s sold if I want to. I have two different guys that want it as it is setup very well and at our local track it is very hard to beat. I Team Losi driver helped me with a setup that he uses and after that it was even faster than before and it was already pretty good. If I do it I will get the new Yoke in about two or three weeks.

I like how you did your front links. Kinda like the 414M2 with those struts. What parts would I need to buy to do that?

Thanks
Brian

James- have you put any weight on the electonics side of the car? I had to put about an ounce on the electonics side to get the car balanced from left to right. If the car is unbalanced and then you tweek it to get it even, it's not going to handle right.

Hi guys. greetings from Malta.

TWEEK.

JAMES N. Just as I said yesterday that my car never seemed to tweek, I took it down to the track yesterday, put it on the track.........and yes you've guessed!

It was as tweeked as hell. All I had done since my previous run was put another set of used Sorex tyres on rebuild the Corally motor. It was totally loose on right handers.

I swapped rear tyres around and next run........totally loose on left handers.

Put the set of Take Offs from my last race meeting on for the next run...............PERFECT.

Just a thought for the future. Try simple and daft things like this first before fiddling with chassis adjustments.

RANDMAN. A friend runs Reedy motors in his TC3, and yes the KR is very quick indeed. My son and I run Corally motors because we get lots of help from Corally. But that's not the only reason. I think they are brilliant too, and at least as fast as anyone elses motors.

I ran a 12 x 1 yesterday and my car was quicker than guys running 10s. At the end of the day it's the little fiddling with brushes, springs, timing, speedo settings etc that makes the difference.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Johnbull - With a lower turn modified like a 12 turn, I would try a double or triple if I were you. You lose a little torque, but gain RPM's, and since you are dang good at stock racing, you know how to keep cornerspeed.

Need info on SD spings...

I've just purchased a new SD and was wondering if any of you can post some info on springs. I 'm going to race modified on asphalt. I've read of some rayspeed springs but i'm from Puerto Rico and would like to know if the AE springs or maybe HPI would work. and which ones. I love the car so far but it needs better springs that the factory ones. Thank's in advance from.... PR , "The Island of Enchatment".

HPI springs will not work..they are too long. AE will fit...but you will have to change the springs ends and retainer to AE. AE blue is equal to Rayspeed red and AE silver = RS yellow. PM me if you're interested in Rayspeed springs and bladders/o-rings.

Joe:

It would seem to me that your sorexs where labled wrong or you got two different compounds in the bag. Since sorex does not lable the rubber it self like the take off tires it would be pretty easy to loose track of wich tire is wich compound. That or 2 different inserts where used but i would doubt you did something like that. I have seen mix ups with sorex tire before because there are no markings on the sidewalls. Wonder if a durometer would work on rubber?
