Can anyone give me a quick low down on the difference between the UK car and the normal US car, besides the diff and one-way difference?

I own the US Carpet car now, but deciding on which one to pick up as my outdoor asphalt car.

UK kit has 4 deg blocks and double diffs.

Standard US kit has 2 deg blocks with a one-way.

At least that is how they are supposed to be.

Does anybody make shock ends that will work with the Corally shocks? Manufacturer and part number would be great. I discovered late tonight that I broke one, and it's too late to put in an order before the next race day. If someone makes one that's similar which can be had at the local Hobbytown, that would be great. I think kansasracer said the XRays will work, but I'm not sure I can acquire those locally.

I tried using the Mugen short ball ends from an MTX-3. Just need to sand the rod diameter for it to fit the spring retainers and should be OK while your waiting for the OEM bits.

Default Anyone know if someone makes

different wheel hubs that will allow to use larger bearings like the X-ray05. If this car had this and two peice bulkheads so that you could remove the diffs as quick as the spur, this car would be perfect in every asspect.

Syndrome,
Losi and associated shock retainers will work.

Default Black & White

It wasn't really my intention, but I sort of ended up with a black & white theme. Anybody else want to post pictures of their car? I'd love some new ideas on wiring, it doesn't seem like there are many options.

Can I suggest that if it will fit (i.e. not foul the belt), move your servo to behind the posts instead of in front how you have it now, the way you have it will result in steering variation in throw rates left and right due to the steering link angle.

Modeltech,

You can only do that with certain servos. With most servos, including the one syndrome has, the rear of the case will hit the belt if you put the servo behind the posts.

Default Setup Help

Hey out there! i need some setup help if anyone can...I run my RDX at the track where the carpet nats were help, Hobby Chamber, and the rear is too planted. I run with Magenta's in the front and Purples in the rear, No sway bars, 2 degrees positive camber front and rear, zero front toe in, and 4.5mm ride height front and back. 60wt front and 40 wt rear with Toso's spring setup from the nats. 4 degree hub carriers. The back end grips so much I am scrubbing infield speed. I only use paragon compound on the fronts...Any suggestions? Running 19 turn....
