Coz my Jaco NitroShoes 30mm is touching the rear shocktowers really badly. The only thing i can think of is running 26 mm all around..
The regular 28mm tires are fine but I did remove some material on the rear body post mounts as the tires looked like they could rub in hard cornering

I ran 28 in front, and 30 in rear. The only thing I needed to do is shave down the bottom of the body post in rear, and no problems at all.

Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

HORATIO. Ralt F3 bits. I used to do lots of real racing a few years back - actually built my own championship winning car, so I know all the racing guys here.

A friend bought 6 F3 Ralts from a team in Italy plus masses of spares, beautiful dural brackets, lots of carbon bits, etc. I could go to his garage and pick and choose. I still have some of the dural rod. That's what I made my front spool from for the SD.

WCOYOTE. We were all beginners some time. I'm not so sure I agree with your line of thought about buying something cheap first. If you think you will be sticking with the hobby then get something good and competitive, otherwise you will have spent money uselessly, because sooner or later you are going to want a really good car. You can always buy a basic kit for a good car, say a TC3 racer or now the new tub chassis SD. If you upgrade them you won't be spending as much as you would to start from scratch again.

Another very important point is spares availability and other guys having them near you. It's so much more difficult when you have a car that nobody else has and you have to do all the developement on your own without being able to compare notes with others.

That's why 90% of grids here in Malta are made up of Yokes and TC3. I run a Yoke. My son runs a TC3. I prepare both, carry spares at the track and can help anyone with their problems. Anyone running any other cars has no one to fall back on when in trouble.

Just my 2 cents worth.

RANDMAN. I will try and get some pics on Sunday.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

That's awesome. Basically racing is in your blood

From the stuff I've seen, you're engineering is very good. You need to post more pictures of your fine work.

Default Spur gears

Guys, what brand of spur gear are you all using? I am on my last set of Xenons and I don't want to order overseas anymore just for that. I tried a Kimbrough but only 2 holes match up the spur holder and I don't want to drill. Btw, I'm using 48p, 75-78T. Thank you.

Check out the Racers Corner at Speedtech, they have Xenon spurs for cheap.

It's not local, but Kawada spurs are very nice. I found some at a LHS that used to import Kawada, and the spurs are well made and fit on the Yok spur adapter well. I believe RW Racing spurs also fit, but I'm not sure. RWs would be easier to find though.

Oh well, I guess there are not many choices other than mailorder.
