Seaball - great pics, thanks for all the effort, you have certainly lost some weight off the car, mine came in about 1520g with small electronics but GP3300's. The minimum racing weight here is 1500g without transponder so thats not really an issue for me, if I can get the distribution a bit better I'll be happy.

synapse79 - I sent an email to miwahobby about ordering direct and was told to contact my local distributor. I did and he has some arms and thats about it. Perhaps I'll try again.

John
I emailed them a while back and they told me they would have no prob shipping me parts as long as i gave them a CC number. I dont know what to tell you.

Did you check out www.integy.com
You can deffinitely order from them.

also, since i appear to have way too much time on my hands, i thought i'd tell you that the car was 700g front and 685g rear. i've never driven a front heavy car. i'm going to run the transponder off of the esc next to help get closer to even. something tells me that it's this weight up front that's reducing turn in. my car was so far off, that i'm starting fresh this weekend.

on the weight issue. for carpet with foams we have minimum of 50 oz or 1420g w/o transponder. so i'm not even close to minimum. bodies run between 100 and 120g that puts me around 1465-1485 and that's running umh cells which are 40g lighter than gp's. i need to get to 1300 or so! what? plastic bulkheads? maybe. nah. i made a bumper that's about 25g heavier than stock including the top plate. the stock one is a bit small. at least for me. that's why my car was front heavy. i would think with the layout i used, and the stock bumper it would be almost dead 50/50 maybe 10g more rear.

well, back to the drawing board. by the way, what are you fellas doing with the wheelbase? back/back, front/back yada yada.

For wheel base I'm running front and rear in the most forward position. The reason for this is quite scientific.....

It's so my old shells drilled for HPI will fit!! I may try playing with this once I run out of shells, shouldn't be long the rate I go through them

i thought it was 53 for rubber and 50 for foam. in know here at the indoor champs in november it's 50. that' s why our club adopts those rules, whosever they maybe.

also john i just moved them to that position to keep weight back a bit. it does bother me to run the front ones forward as that puts the steering link nearer that critical angle that makes the inside wheels wobble at full lock.

you are right, i looked the weight limit up at roarracing and it is 53oz.

With rubber tires you shouldnt have a prob getting close to 53oz. The track i run at most just runs rubbers, so i dont know how hard it is to get to 50oz with foams.

Default parts

Claydoh - I've managed to get all parts I needed from Integy and from jethobby.com.

I live in the Uk and the parts from the USA and Hong Kong came within 1 week.

Got suspension arms, diff protect seals, flat head washers spur gear plate purple, shaft maint kit, servo saver spring and hard urethane bumper from Integy and Thrust Ball Set, Diff Rings, Pulley, Delrin out drives, 7 degree uprights, Taper Washer Purple, Damper Springs,Front/Rear Stablizer Sets from Jet.

I still haven't built the car as I've just got all the parts to replace the front one-way and a titanium screw set.

Looking forward to the build and a big local race meeting a week on Sunday!

I've recently retired my RS4 Pro 2 (Great Car) and Purchased an Atlas YM 34 Type T. I found that I needed to shim the lower arms a little to remove the play on the shafts, but with the exception of that, all went well. After the initial shakedown, I was very impressed with its performance with the box settings (outdoor surface) in particular its corner speed (dual one ways). I have a question though, using the supplied battery brace, it seems to only be holding the two cell nearest the motor & the one cell at the front of the car?? Is this normal? I have filed the battery slots down to accomodate the cells. Any answers??
