Default Amacing first run!

Hi...

Got the problems with the tweeked chassis fixed - got a new one...

Had my first test of the car this past weekend. Made nine runs during the weekend at our small track (about 11x16 meters, great bite in the carpet, 2 meters wide, nice and flowing track, laptimes around 8,5 sec.).
Allready at my 3. run i made a new track record - over five minutes. Bettered the average time by "only" 1/100 of a sec. 35/5.03,28
Had the record with my Yokomo BD before...

At my nineth and final run I smashed the track record - also for a singel lap! An amacing run! 36/5.05,48 - fastest lap 8,26 (bettered by 0,04)

All I have is the car and the parts from the kit. Ran the car nearly as std. But have to say thanks to John P. for the set-up! Yes it's a very good starting point...

Can't wait to get more parts for the car. Usually the One-way is faster at our track, and less toe in the rear is also used.

So this weekend it's off to my first real race with the S-400. A leg of the Danish Championships, at a vrey small and very twisty track. It's almost one 180 after another... Not my cup off thee...
But with this new car I'm a bit more optemistic.

cheers
Nicolai

How is the durability of the car?
How much beating can it take compared to other cars out there?
( I have one on the way - and I just want to be ready for it.. )

The front alloy bulkhead caps ( the shock tower screws to them ) have a habit of bending. I have had one bent on me and a freind has had both completly shear, although that by all acoounts was quite a hard head on hit.

He also snapped the chassis

Also have some spare bearings to hand. They do get rough after a while but I have cleaned mine out and re-oiled them and they are good again. Others have not been so lucky.

Thanks shawnh..

What pitch is the stock spur?
I have a sh*tload of 0.4 pitch pinions from Tamiya, and I wonder if the 0.4p/105t spur from the TA05 will fit..?
..or do I need to go shoping for 48p pinions??
