Chrisman.... how did you did you find the mid-steering mod perform against stock positions?

Also are those holes you drilled on the motor bridge? I have the same idea but instead thinking of drilling it from the flat sides and on from top to lose weight and add cooling....

BTW, you guys must run 2 cars... one for show only... cos no matter what I do I cant get mine that clean!!! LOL

Hey Antoniop,

Crisp clear pics dude....nice.

Sonneteer,with the mod on the mid steering I find it best for full time 4x4.Steering is precise and quick.This all depends on the track condition too.Overall it's a good mod.

Rear upper links extend it to the furthest hole and inner lwr shock tower hole.Traction at rear is un beliveable.

Again this is tested with full time 4x4.Tried with oneways today...it's corner speed is way faster with 17/37 stock geared at 122x43.No brakes....will be good for carpet racing.

As for the motor mounts,the way it's drilled so I can retain it's structure strength without damaging it from stress and impacts plus air comes from the frt to these holes.

Chrisman.

chrisman,
with the split plate in back, did you find the car to push on power due to the crazy traction it provided? i would think to do this with the oneway only. what kind of rear traction? on and off power? just curous.

Hi Joe,

I found them very close to HPI Light Yellow Linear (302gf/mm) but the Yoks are very short. I'm going to change to the HPI coz I don't need the big spacer clips I'm using.
The track is realy gigantic. It's used by 1/8 cars and 1/10 200 competition cars. These last one sometimes do a shorter version of the track.
The straight must be close to 300ft.

Hey Sea ball,

With the rear plate cut..I have experienced ON Power steering....it's alot of traction.....full time 4x4..but with the oneways in the frt it's easy to drive in corners....try it or cut/dremel it a little to see what u like.

the TC3 blue ones are probably the closest you will find, but i am not sure if the diameter is OK or not as I think they are a little smaller in diameter....

I use the HPI yellow or pinks.... however I am now using TC3 threased shocks I a I dod not get on with the original LAB shocks.... and the TC3 threaded shocks are the best shocks I have used ever.... using the RCLAB plastic shock bits with the TC3 shock...

Wow, I have very sensitive fingers

I was going to say that it must be close to the white Progressive (judging by my "two finger test") but they are 29 mm long and that's too long for the front shocks.

Considering that I already tried Pinks, I got a set of Yellow Linear from HPI (302g) and the results were the same as the Orange Yok. The added benefit is that they are longer than the Yok spring not needing huge spacer clips.

The result is the same in terms of handling (that's what I felt).

I was looking at a few setups from RC Lab UK and I can see that a lot of drivers are using the Yellow HPI springs but with the lighter oil (???) . I found the rebound to be unacceptable and that's why I went to a heavier oil.

I guess I will stick with the Yellow (#6850) 70 wt oil combination.
