Thanks Jun...

Hey Rod....yeah it bums me out too...more than I expected to be honest. But it's the right answer for me. Who knows what the future might bring. If things change in TC I would consider coming back...but not for foam tire racing with traction compounds. I have a lot a folks asking me to do the off-road thing...which I guess is always a possibility....but for right now, I need it to be a clean break away from the hobby...I need to get heathy again. I might go back to racing 1:1 race cars if budgets allow...we will see. I would love to do spec miata racing but that does not exist at my local track (mosport). I started to look into the arrive and drive program that panoz put's on. That looks like a good fit for me. We will see.

cya.

yeah i saw that conversion but it looked like an xray diff in a cyclone nt a good look reason for the change if poss i ran a 415 for 2 years and never had a dif prob the cyclone ive snaped 2 diff bolts in 2 months not good i know it's the only down side to this car (sorry if i upset any tamiya guys) i also know its not the bolt thats the prob with this diff as i also snapped a tamiya diff bolt so if any body can please measure the diff it would be fantastic.

edd sort me out

Some of you may have already read my thread on traction compound health issues already. I might come back if thngs are done to reduce or eliminate exposure to these chemicals, but that is unknown at this time.

Anyway, good luck and represent tamiya with pride.
Hey Martin,
Sorry to here this, you've been a great help over the years, the XXX guide has never left my pitbox
You should consider moving over to the UK, all smelly/harmful compounds are banned over here.

Anyway, hope you have the opportunity to come back soon.
Regards
Ed

Had a chance to run this my MSX with a MOD motor and Rubber tires on carpet today... WOW - was that fun!!!

I have always been intimidated with Mod motors - but I love the speed on the straightaway so much that I had to try it. A fellow racer lent me a motor and I can say that I had a smile from ear-to-ear. Not only was the car pretty predictable, with the rubber tires; it did not destroy the rear diff like a foam tire would. Can't wait to run this again.

One happy ex-XRAY owner.

Hi Guy's
I need a little help
I am using the David Jun droop system and need help.
First question is
Do I need to disconect the suspention from the arms.

Second question
My tyres are sorex 36 R = 63.0mm
I half that = 31.5mm
add 2mm for the axle Total = 33.5mm
Minus height from Axle to base of set up board = 24.5mm
Difference between is 9.00mm
Minus ride height is Front 5.5/ droop total 3.5mm
rear ride height 6.0/ droop total is 3.0mm
Is this correct
and do you think the Jun system is the more accurate way to get droop reading's.
How many of you use this system.
Any help would be great.

Not sure what your asking to disconnect, if your asking about the shocks, No. When I use David Jun's method for setting droop, I will disconnect the sway bars only. I do feel it is more accurate way of setting droop, than the measurement method in your 2nd question, because you are measuring with a caliper from the top of each axel to the setting board, so the measurment is very precise.

Hi Tsquare
Thanks mate for your help, I was asking if i should disconnect the shocks so thanks for clearing that up, Also you said the Jun method is very accurate more than the method I mentioned but i thought that in the second question that i was using the Jun method. I hope I have read this right, Can you please explain what I am doing wrong from the Jun way. I do measure with a caliper from the top of the axle to the board.
Thanks Mate
