Other thing I've read (but not tried as yet) is split suspension mounts in the rear will give the chassis more flex. This may help. Sure others can confirm or deny this??

Maybe Kiyo should quit screwing around and design a car the team can compete with.

True. The car also feels like it has slightly less steering tho.

I haven't got a call back from Martin Mieja yet as he is another factory driver for Tamiya, he is a local so he may have some insight on setup.

Hi guys, Ive read that the Tamiya On-Road Aereation Dampers will be made available as a hop-up and Id noticed that its already part of the TRF417 touring car kit.

I tried searching for more info, but couldnt find any decisive so Im here to ask if I may:

What are aeration dampers? How do they work? What are they good at? Any reviews?

best regards,
Phil

So my assumptions seem to be true. Check out this: ets.redrc.net
something missing?

Agree John!
If that is how it works it is a bit of a joke.
But the reason why there are basically no car pictures from any manufacturers cars anymore must be something else...

With pictures disappearing it won't make any difference anyway because pictures will always show up somewhere...

The thing is that the ETS races in particular now rivaling the World Champs in terms of importance. All the top drivers are there and very often are running prototype parts on the car.

If you're at the race, then you've got plenty of opportunities to look at the cars, chat with the drivers and mechanics and they can explain what is special about the car and why they are running those parts.

Unfortunately, you would lose that element with just a photograph. It then in turn gives people unrealistic expectations of what teams may be working on, and why, and whether or not the general public can buy the parts. The teams want to make sure parts are perfected before being released - it's probably fair that well over half the stuff that is tested at these big races is ruled out and then never used again.

Let the teams and drivers get on with their job - developing the cars to be the best they can. When they're ready, then I'm sure you can see plenty of pictures of them!
