It's a Ride Accord body. Same one as Hara used at the Worlds and that most drivers used at the Japanese nationals I believe.

It looks amazing - I must try and get one.

Its a shame that technically these bodies are not legal in the United Kingdom as they do not appear on the BRCA list

kentech,

Where can I get the Ride Accord body?
I have tried to find it Online, but no luck so far....

By the way, are you going to the Carpet World Cup?

Thanks!

shopping.rcmodel.hk do ride bodies, but not the accord. You might want to ask them if they can get it into stock.

The japanese shops should have them. Try RC Champ. They have their own thread on here and very good service.

I'm not coming to the Carpet World Cup but good luck to you there! I have had a break since the Euros, really needed it!

Hara Used a EXCEL Accord body along with 90% of the Other A-Main drivers.. there is a slight difference on the shape of the front lip and hood line on the Excel Accord...and the Rear wing is different

Default Ceramic Diff Balls

Has anyone tried the Xenon Racing ceramic diff balls or any kind of ceramic diff balls?

What kind of lubrication do you use with them

Cheers

How do you find the ceramics - are they much smoother than even the tungsten ones? I've heard they really eat into the diff rings tho.

what would be the average droop settings for carpet front/rear?

would it be ideal to have the front/rear setting even?

larger droop at the front than the rear and vice versa?

any help would be greatful.

Thanks!
