Looks like PW had the two fastest runs of the day with 22 laps. Alex was super consistant with all his times being so close to each other. Great job to all you guys laying it down with the EC this weekend.

Everyone else, I am looking for some parts:
http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=145282
Take the Steering plate from a Tamiya 415 (not the new steering they have, the older one with the CF plate) and drill 2 holes, 10 mm apart. (5mm out from dead center on each side) Mount it using flanged bearings and a .5mm shim underneath in the center Ackerman hole on the bell cranks. You'll need to re adjust your link from the servo to the steering also as this will make the bell cranks point inward slightly instead of being parallel. I felt it gave the car more steering all around and smoothed the front end out.

Hi Guys

Does anyone know if the Tamiya shock collars would fit the EC shocks, as the ones on the EC shocks tend to loosen easily altering the ride height. I know Marcos posted above about using the HPI ones, but i am unable to get the HPI ones, only the tamiya ones.

Thanks

I wonder if you could but some silicone on the shocks and it would help keep the collors in place or use some lock tight or something on that ordor?

Hello everyone,

MoonTrap - The Tamiya shock collars are a bit too small in diameter so they don't fit.

RCShark - Shock oil on them helps slightly but not much, when I first got my kit I tried using a tiny bit of threadlock to keep them where I wanted, although they were really hard to move afterwards. Your best just to go for the old Mi2 shock collars if you are having problems. The new car will come with o-rings in the collars, happy days!

aus jd - Its quite hard to tell without knowing your current set up, it could be a few different things. Too much front droop, too thin shock oil, too little castor, rear spring too soft, additive/tyre prep.

Hope this helps guys
Jonny

I use the collars for the JRXS. They are direct fit and have the rubber o ring in them.

Well if he takes out a spacer under the front blocks the car will roll a little more and a little more steering overall.

Aus jd other than the graphite riser under the suspension blocks how much more spacers do you have added for your roll center?
