looks cool in black too .
According to a information that I've got from Japan that there are no difference between silver carbon and black carbon.
Cars are same as well. Simply people wanted a black carbon instead of silver ones.
No release date for a molded chasis but Yokomo is aware of our demands.

Any suggestions on whether to lubricate the ring gear/drive gears? I was thinking of just a little of the white diff grease (or associated stealth lube - they seem the same), or maybe some Tamiya ceramic grease. Any suggestions?

What would the purpouse of a molded chassis be? I think that the flat graphite is much less likely to tweak.

Use "white Lightning" dry was lubricant found in bike shops. TC3 team drivers use them as well.

SD Black version should be stiffer, SSG has more flex compared to regular black carbon.

Maybe SD Black will be more suited to carpet ?

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Ran another 4 packs yesterday with much more encouraging results.

I am now getting frequent laps in the late 23s with old packs and did a 23.3 with a good pack, also taking some 10 seconds off the 5 minute race time - and this with 5 other stocks on the track.

Strangely the lower I gear it the quicker it is. It is also remarkable free, and I never bothered cleaning out the bearings, just put more running time into the car to let it work itself free.

I am now finally feeling that running the SD is actually going to give me an advantage which guys without an SD just don't have. What a fabulous feeling.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Well I've got some hardcore setup work to do on mine.

Took it to a very slippy floor indoor track last night, my old club, but I hadn't been for a long time.

The car was a total PIG.

Something about the standard settings mean it breaks away the tail end incredibly easily, and uncontrollably, combined with hardcore understeer as well. All I changed was springs, experimenting with harder and softer settings.

I let other (better) drivers try it as well, and they agreed.

I'd noticed the origins of this trait on a grippier slippy floor, where it was prone to losing the tail if you lost momentum, but last night was rotten.

So far the car's got worse for me with every meeting, I'll turn it around though.
