Questions??

What's up everyone! I haven't raced in over a year. Been busy with work and college. One of the posts above asked about which is best for carpet. I want to know which chassis is the stiffest? Also, does anyone still have the conversion kit in stock anywhere? Elwyn still around?

Too flex might not a good thing when the traction getting higher ....

exactly

regular worlds chassi plus balldiff is the fastest and most consistant combination.

na wenn deutsch kein Problem ist, dann antworte ich dir halt so:

13.5T ohne timing kann man im prinzip nicht lang genug übersetzen.

In Heemsteede war 3.50 vorgeschrieben und das ist auch jeder gefahren. In der Halle (Kastellaun) sind wir 4.50 gefahren. So richtig schnell isses nicht. Aber es reicht :-)

1. It's a Sanwas 801 Servo

I used to hate low-profile servos as they are generally just too slow (futaba 9550 was unbelievably bad for example!) and with the servo just being too slow you loose so much steering!!
Most people don't believe how big the difference is untill they try it on their own. without changing anything on the cars setup but just putting a faster servo in you get so much more steering. and it's more precise aswell.

There will be a new Graupner Servo which i will be using then as it will be ultimately fast. But untill then I stick with the 801.

2. It's a regular 40mm fan you can get anywhere
