Hi Martin, I can tell you that the setup that you use work well on my track, or I would have to change your setup.

So why a new top deck? Just for fun?

Hey Martin, Thank You for the tip on using the MuchMore Joint Grease! It may be a little premature saying this, but so far, no wear on my aluminum out drives. But I only have 4 runs on them so far. I'll keep a long term report on the wear of them with the MM grease. I think part of this is due to the new layout. They torn down the whole outdoor track and redid everything. We now have an Asian/European style track. Very awesome I think for us. So the track was flowing. Not like the typical parking lot ON/OFF throttle driving. It was more smooth style, which I like. Anyways, only thing I did not like was the rocks/dirt collecting on there. Gotta clean them out almost every run.

Thanks for the tip on removing the screws. I keep forgetting to do that. I'm just scared of tweak if I do. Some of the parking lot tracks can be brutal.

Anyways, I may try one of your setups for our new track layout. It may be a good starting point. My car pushed today and the Tekin esc lacks good brakes for the hair pin. I think I need a little midcorner steering. Do you think adding 1mm to the steering rack will help out some?

Kschu, I didn't get to try raising the rear diff today. Not enough time between rounds. I'll try it next weekend. But I did set fast lap and won today. Not too bad I guess.



I started rewiring my esc last night. But didn't finish. Look at my huge fan! I fried two motors in one day last month. I ain't gonna do it again!!

Hello martin you think that the amount of fat in the diff is a lot of JimmyMac or the quantity

RaySpeed SD was my favorite! It has won me many races! I wish I could find who had it. It was a nice car! SD5.... oh please no..... I can't afford to buy another car!!! haha

I like that lipo chassis, but looking at that pic, it does seem wider as I suspected. I'll have to see how much the chassis costs.
