Default de-tweaking the PTI

how would you go about putting the PTI on a tweak station and balancing each corner out using the shock collars? it would be a bit difficult at the front end with the mono shock assembly lol

Looks like you would adjust tweak by adjusting the tie rod that connects the lower a-arm to the front bellcrank-slider mechanism (still can't quite figure out the kinematics there). Lengthen one tie rod and you increase preload on that tire.

Anyway....what we see these days are an inovation from technologies from the past. Nothing much has changed too...especially the drive train......Single belt driven cars like KX One and Losi......have you guys driven the PB Mustang ? made in UK ? single belt too and 2 speed gears also......belt driven cas ...ah...an evolution from chain driven cars....classical example...Kyosho Optima?...ring anybell..... Oh..the PTI....the suspension.....remember Tamiya Hotshot ?......another evolution....TRF 414,415 X-ray FK etc......remember Kyosho Laser or Yokomo ?...huh huh huh.....these layout has been long used in the days when touring cars are not popular yet...these are OLD technologies....what has changed I would say are the improvement of the materials used making them lighter and stronger. Have you guys seen a RC Car ..... 4WD with 4WS ? I have.

most of the early Tamiya cars are unique compared to the "basic" designs you listed.
Ahhh....the classic TA03...another adaptation of a prototype buggy back in the 80's.....

any OVA will be among the most exotic cars around with out a doubt. my kawada sigma is also unique. goods points for both cars, they are fast. bad points are parts. you have to be clever to get around the parts issue. man these are beautiful cars though. oh yea i still love my street weapon also

Hi guys... just wanted to share some pics. I've been reading this thread and was excited to see that people have been mentioning a few cars that I own... I won't comment on any of them performance-wise, but really each is unique in it's own way (and time). A lot of these are highly collectable nowadays. Call them extinct dinosaurs... but gotta admit, they still look cool...

Ian, I'm surprised you don't have the PTI car.
