Adrian. I talked to Doug @ Seattle Indoor Raceway today. He was going to call you to place an order for MI2 stuff (thanks to Brett) If Doug forgets remind him of the Mini Tires. I would like to get them myself.
I hope they are more the 60D tire size not the 50D. will there be a range of inserts?

That's for you, not for me.... 'cause I'm running outlaw class.. with rubber tires and 53226 option part to make negative caster. With the current stock upper link, it will rub the outer part of the tires rapidly no matter how hard the tire's shore I use. So I need this adjustable upper link so bad.

I think I'm gonna build one... by myself...

Tobee craft make aluminium upper rods in two different lengths, 22mm and 23mm for the front, 26.5mm and 27.5mm for the rear these might help.

Thanks, have tried them already. Not much help. I think I need an extreme chamber adjustment... This is the nature of M-03. The front part has double task : steering, as well as accelerating.

I think I'm gonna use coat hanger to make the upperlink (bent it on both side to make holes for screw) ..... (j/k)

I have one available, just about to put it up... mint condition. All hopups.. carbon shafts, aluminum knuckles, aluminum dampers, all sorts of tires/wheels, bearings, sway bars, etc.... Let me know if you are interested, I can get it ready for some pics.

Does anyone else, who runs the One-Way, notice a considerable amount of tire wear?


Also, with the sway-bars, is anyone experiancing any binding?

Chris,

There is not a one way for the Tamiya mini......

THe swaybars I ran at socal, did cause some binding on the banking of the turns. THere was not enough travel for them to work correctly.

You can get a one way from an old TA02 and yes I have tried one and they are fast. No brakes though............who needs brakes?

Part number 53200 I believe... TA03 One-Way insert for gear diff.

Brakes??? At SoCal???


HA

No one uses them anyways!



But yeah, I've had my HPI X-Patterns for two days, and they're showing considerable amounts of wear. Just wondering if anyone else who runs the One-Way noticed the same thing...

With the sway-bars, I noticed that only the left front was slightly stiffer than the right front. After running it for a few runs, it seemed to go away???

Nick and I just tried them out on Thursday.


I've been told that they're not TCS legal. I'm not sure though.
