Don't worry folks, I'm still around

arn671, how about sending some of that traction to me need more grip on wooden floors although I did manage a couple of rolls on monday I was chasing the pack down in the final and was not sparing an inch of track, unfortunatly road rail corner dots have a nasty habbit of rolling you if you put a wheel on them

Need to check my drive train soon, either my rear diff is extremely gritty (there's no grit indoors just dust) or a bearing or two in the rear right hub has gone tits up

Anyone with an R3 think of or tried using the Yokomo steering posts and fitting the old style steering to replace the rack? Seems to be attracting dirt and binding for a few people. May just need a shorter turnbuckle for between the posts.

Hi Guys,

The new SpeedWay Pal Aluminum steering rack will be available soon, and that will give the car even more steering throw, which might give the steering some of you are looking for (heibiki )

I kinda doubt they will do one, I think their main focus will be on getting their name out there a bit more before they start making cars for fun classes.

actually, the Alex car would be the easiest I think to have a 1/12th scale touring (if they produce one)

Shorter chassis and upper deck, and shorter center shaft is all you need. You can run the mid span arm in the long span position and I believe that puts you perfect as far as width for a 1/12th scale. Then all you would need are some Yokomo universal bones for their 1/12th scale and I think you're set. I priced out a custom chassis one time...it is way too much to do just one, but if there are enough interest, I can get a quote. Let me know guys

To make the rear more stable you want more toe in, not less. This will help it track in a straight line.
It's probably into corners you're having problems, so try altering the front end. Stiffen it up so the front isn't biting as hard. You may need to change springs or maybe a small shock position change will do it. Try standing them up a bit more and moving the out on the shock tower and suspension arms.
Try leaning the rears over and going for a softer spring, although not too far from what you use in the front.
If all else fails it's often a good idea to go back to the kit settings. Try the kit setting but with one grade harder spring on the front, it should atleast be reasonably stable indoors.

Generaly if the problem is on the way into a corner you work on the front end and is it's on the way out you work on the rear end, where ever the weight is being transfered to.
