Seaball,

I used to use the big kimborough servo saver until I found out I'm actually grinding it off at the bottom...from cornering to hard.SO I used the stk ones instead but it binds up after a few usage..The ones I using now is from Tamiya..the option heavy duty servo saver...smooth and small.I'll stick to this for a long time.Check it out...

Well I've never been to the GP before, any event in Scotland isn't that big really, sounds like you get more people at some of your clubs It's only about an hours journey for me, although it's been snowing badly the last couple of days in the UK, some people were stuck in snow drifts on a motorway overnight glad I wasn't stuck in my little car, I would of forzen to death.

Looks like I've found a KO Vantage at a reasonable second hand price, still 160 but thats 100 less than new.

haha..yeah G"C" sort of made the race's go his way..with positions and things..

Also he moved me into a really bad heat..pritty much all new drivers.. So i found it hard to get a clean run.." I DIDNT" but i just scraped into the A...
Now i had some clean drivers..time to get it on..But being at the back of the pack i found it difficult to get the the lead...
1st final got to 3rd. with a mad battle but tangeld and finished 4th..
2nd final..drove like a tool.. and ended up 5th..then in the
3rd final.." had a big talk about race ethics with my setup helper BOB..and then i cranked it..all the way to first ..my car was hooked..and had Speed to boot..thanks to the RACE PREP...Pulled into 1st and left the field ..buy half a lap almost..and yeah Peter was HAPPY..

But then in the Points..G "accidently forgot to give me my 1st place ,,and i didnt get my top 3 finish,,but it will be fixed up for the racing mag...if i have my way.
ok my setup is.

The doesnt seam to be much talk in here at the moment??

Is anyone else running the Express Light Weight Aluminuim CVD's in there car...i am running them in the rear of the car..as NOFX found aout that if you run them in the front..they can bend quite easy... I spose thats why they recomend them a REAR ONLY PART..
Also iam using the HARD titanium Screws,,,

Have you gouys found any other parts that are inter changeable in the car that could boost performance?

Painy,

Yes I 'm using the alloy rear diffs right now.If you choose to run them in the frt,you have to use the blades.It will help the frt from binding,wear and bending the out drives.The alloy ones ae very durable for its weight.Xpress do have th eplastic ones...which I don't recommend as they wears fast and breaks..no we donot want that when you are in the mains..

I'm using blue anodized alluminium screws on one of my 7 cars.The other one is with full stainless screws.I found out weight savings the most is the aloy ones,but compare stainless to titanium..not a difference.Stainless are cheaper to get..and when polished..it's like a mirror.

The outdoor set ups looks good for foam.We over here run rubber tires on outdoors.Foam is only used indoors for mod.Spec classes uses rubber tires to keep everyone the same.

Hi Paniy,

this is my first post in here, how are you?

I did own a Rclab 7even before but now just sold because it getting really old. Are you talking about the Melbourne Hopper Crossing Indoor race on 15-16 Feb? If so, Try the total standard setup in there, the Rclab was "born" from a Indoor super tight track.

Here is the link of Rclab indoor carpet basic setup, you will love it
http://www.rclab.com/rclab/setting/s.../lobo10415.htm

Keep in contact, my e-mail is [email protected]

Express CVDs and diff are perfect fit on Rclab as well, but Express CVDs are weaker than the Rclab one, if running with 27T motor it should be fine, but for any Mod motors they are not durable enough.

Think about the Tamiya 42mm type CVDs (for 414M, EVO 2 & 3), they are much durable but we found a bit heavier than standard Rclab CVDs, very good choice for the front end if running in Mod class.

Hi Paniy,

actually, do I know you before?? hehehe..

So what day will you goto Hopper for practice, let's make a time so I mgiht be able to come and chat with you? are you living in Melbourne?

If running CS-27 tires, I don't think tire warmer is need but tire juice is good idea if the track become clean. Track was quite dusty but still being to gain the traction after some runs on there, and the track will be awesome during race days coz they will clean the track very well soon.

Remember, try the totally standard setup first!! NO PAIN!!

Hi Painy,

You mean this Friday? or the week before our race day?

Also, have you check out there is new hop up options avaiable for Rclab?
- New 3 degree front hub carrier
- New 3 degree rear hub carrier with 3 new roll center adjustment

Ask Peter about it and he might be able to get these stuffs for you before indoor champ. I heard that the 3 degree front caster work really well.

Yar, bring your swaybar sets as well, I reckon will be good in Hopper

Here is some what I can share with, is my old Rclab 7even.







This is the modify for Tamiya servo saver, just cut out the standard Rclab servo saver top bite and mount it on, easy to do and servo run smoother.
