First race outside. I was worried about my Type T's setup and could I drive the one-way on dirty asphalt ...Hell yeah! The car was a rocket. I ended up taking out the set screw and running the lay shaft one-way as well. A couple of bonehead moves on part is what kept me from winning the A. I couldn't be happier with the car. I know I am preaching to the choir telling you guys how great my Atlas is but I am thrilled. It's gonna be a great summer. The guys who gave me crap about getting a car I couldn't buy parts locally have stopped saying anything. With 3-4 months racing and not a single broken part *knock wood* I'd say I made a wise purchase.


BTW, the kit tires that come with the Type T are Sorex 32's, correct?

Front diff? I don't need no stinking front diff : )

Thumbs up atlas carpet

i use to run a yok worlds but now switching back to ym-34v3. the car is alot freer than most belt cars. i had a lot of success with it in a field of tc3 and losi. we run on carpet and use foams. the trick is to run Zero front kick up and zero anti sqaut. i run the seven deg casters and had have the knuckles upside down. also run high roll centers i'm runnin 4mm spacer roughly on the f/r hinge pin brace and compensat for the others to eqaul zero. run blue trinirty congos all around and 60 wt. the car drives fast and corners well just adjust camber links to suit i run real short and high in front and med to long in rear depending on what i want it to do.

Small, tight and dirty is the best way to describe our track. Old asphalt parking lot. Straight being 30-35m long or so.

oh ok, i race on a big track i am guessing 50+ metre straight, with a big sweeper and 1 hair pin.

I am having lots of trouble with corner speed right now, the car seems to roll too much in corners and with a 12T (i usually run stock) the body ends up scraping most of the time around the corners.

to help keep the front from rolling so much, you could move one of the alum washers below the hub to raise the roll center.

for the rear you could try a thicker rear swaybar.

I went through mine with TI screws starting with the screws that were highest up and working down.

Dependingo n whether its rolling on or off the gas, you could also 180 the front suspension mount... If the track is bumpy I prolly wouldnt do that.

All else fails switch to a stiffer spring

i might try playing around with the roll centre, that sounds like a good idea...

io also put Ti screws and Ti turnbuckles through my car and carbide balls in the rear diff.

I found mine to be faster round TFTR with the front one-way, I noticed you were running a difff in the front.

Word going round is you are about to ditch the Atlas in favour of an Evo III, I'd say stick with it, it's a great car and even though my driving sucks, it sucked worse with my other cars!! My brother has had good success with his Type T in the UK.

Sell the Losi, get the evo, but keet the Atlas it's good to have somethng a bit different to everyone else.

im usually pro-belt driven chssis... next indoor season i want to have a nice shaft driven chassis also. Ive been looking at the evo3 and waiting to see if the HPI ships with the alum bulkheads.

If the limited edition evo3 thats red is a resonable price I may back order one of those. I had a 414m2 for a while...

Basically my reason for wanting a nice chassis of each drivetrain configuration is because when i get pissed at one i can switch to the other. Some days you just cant get any particular chassis to perfrom the way you'd like and then it would be nice to have another to try.

Only time i get mad at the atlas is when i have to remove a diff in a hurry... ugh...
