Nice list of cars! I wish I could remember all of mine...

Tamiya Hornet
Tamiya HotShot
Kyosho Optima
Kyosho Ultima
Kyosho EP12 (dunno the real name of the 1/12th scaler they had)
AE RC12LC or W
Schumacher Cat (don't remember which version 87-88ish)
Yokomo YZ10?
Tamiya Tamtech
Kyosho Optima Mid
Kyosho GP10
Tamiya TA03R
Tamiya F103
Yokomo YR4M2 Pro
AE RC10L2O
Losi StreatWeapon
AE T3 (2)
AE B3
Yokomo MR4TC SP
Losi XXX-S
AE TC3 (2)
Traxxas EMaxx
AE RC12L3
HPI Micro RS4
Yokomo YRX12-WE
Tamiya TRF414M2
Losi XXX-S G+
Kyosho Mini Z
Tamiya Evo III
Yokomo SD (2)
IRS RugRat
Tamiya TLT-1
Tamiya F201
Tamiya TRF415
Tamiya Evo IV

I think that's it to the best of my knowledge. I like to try out different cars since this is just a hobby. So I don't see why I should be stuck with just one car. It's not like I'm sponsored and have to or anything. It's fun and I enjoy it. I'd have to say my Yokomo SD is near the top of my list of favorites right now. But the 415 is tops so far. I'd like to try out the Pro4 by the end of the year or start of asphalt next year.

As for ceramic diff balls. I love mine. They are very smooth and will last a very very long time. Only problem is... they eat up diff rings if you are not smooth with the car and/or set the diffs too loose.

That's excellent - what a collection!!

As the saying from a popular magazine goes:

'He with the most toys, wins'

Just as you say - this sport is all about fun. Comparing and enjoying our many different model racing cars is definitely 'part of the game' IMO.

Here's to you matey!

I currently run a SSG with a brushless, my car keeps pushing in the turns. How should I set my front end...toe/camber??

Race on...

More droop in the rear. Softer springs in the rear. Harder springs in the front. Heavier oil in the front. Many ways to cure the push.

Thumbs up Ok now I'm impressed......

Finally got a rolling chassis and the thing tracks straight when pushed along the ground without the servo to hold it all inline (ok so it may not sound like much but never had a kit be able to do that before).

In kit trim, just checking but is it normal for the arse end to be riding lower than the front?

Those tips will create push.

Do the opposite to get rid of push.

Hi friends. greetings from Malta.

Haven't been on much lately because I am in the process of renovating my shop, and hardly have time to sit at the computer.

Hope to be able to answer some of your SD questions next week.
