all 3 cars, MSX, MRE and MSXX are awesome cars and will perform extremely well in mod racing. Just run the driveshafts that come with the car, aluminium dogbones on rear and steel up front and you'll be fine.

Delrin outdrives on the spool are a must as they help reduce the effect of chatter. The rear aluminium diff is a must for mod racing.

Spares you're looking at king pins, wishbones, C-hubs and front hubs that's about it.

Hi all, just wanted to come in here and give a huge thanks to team Tamiya for all their help and support. But, a HUGE thanks goes to Rod Canare, David Jun, Fred Medel, and Jimmy J. Without there help, my win in 19t at the Reedy race would have not been possible. My car was the best it had ever been. My set up was absolutely awesome and hope to have it up soon for any that are interested. This was a great weekend and hope to have more like them in the future. Oh and to Stephen Sohl...aka SOHLMAN, you are one cool guy, really enjoyed hanging out. Also want to congratulate Rod on his third place finish in open mod. The level of competition in that class was unbelievable. Great job Rod!!!!

whats the principle behind the rollcenter adustments for the car usin o upper camber links.

the holes on the bulkhead adust length and spacers to adjust angle?

i know the block spacers would adjust Rollcenter , antidive kick up etc.



how was the mazda speed six handling vs. the older mazda? too much steeing? too stable?

You can adjust the roll centres via either the top link or the toe blocks. More shims under the top links drops the roll centre, but to a much lesser extent than if you had moved the toe blocks. The main effect of changing the angle of the top links is camber change, which affects the evolution of the grip level during a corner.

Mazda Speed 6 works fine, I find it a little bit more stable than the old M6 without losing steering too much.

Spares you're looking at king pins, wishbones, C-hubs and front hubs that's about it.
aluminium hex ball ends and ti turnbuckles as spares.... and make sure you have spare drive shafts. If you brake a knuckle or a C- hub 60% chance you ll ruin the drive shaft. once in a while you ll brake a suspension arm if you race at wooden boarded track. If you are running on a wide open track nothing brakes unless you have a major accident...
