LSRCC Sunday Race Series

S400 wins 10.5 class and mathmatically locks a win for the series championship.

Mike qualifies 4th in the A 13.5 class, has some bad traffic luck requiring marshalling and comes out with a 7th place finish.

Allan wins the B main 13.5 with his S400

Conner does a excellent showing as a developing driver with his S400.

That's weird.

Are the axle bearings the size like said in the manual? i hope not.

Default Carpet Wars Vega World Cup - Serpent win 19t

Mark Sadler took the 19t win yesterday at the Vega World Cup. His Serpent was brilliant putting him 3rd on the grid and with some controlled runs he took a leg win and a second, and married with his fastest leg time the win was his. A very deserved win. To make the story even better Dan Ghibaldan took 3rd overall with a great set of runs and finally Jay Westwood made it three S400's in the A final.

A superb day out for the Serpent team in 19t.

More results to follow on the rest of the Serpent-UK Team.

Yes it is, or at least looks that way to me. The tamiya suspension mount will fit the car. He is probably testing new ideas for the car ( like alot of companies and racers do )

Spur gear I'm useing 108T/64p by Durotrax. 1mm left on tolerance, and b4 useng a dremel on top plate central assembly. Also with 24T/64p pinion. 28T pinion was too much noise it emits and vibration. Useing Robinson Pinions.

Paul, the base setup works pretty good as a starting point..

High traction ? Low traction ? What is considered a warm climate to you ?
