Nope, no dress but I bet he will never pit right behind the driver's stand at Ripon ever again!

Thanks wood, I'll do some experimentation during tomorrow's club race and see if that helps. I'm running the 2 hole narrow hubs in the rear with standard hexes.

From Mo Denton who tried the single post steering. The car will wear foam tires very fast. He said he could hear the tires scrubbing.

This is for rubber tire. You gain more steering from the tires heating up faster.

About the new car,
I found a picture of Marc Fisher at the Team Orion Speed Weekend with the new car in front of him, he's using a GM brushless system in case you're wondering.

Damn, I can't tell anything new about the car from that picture, except that it's pretty clear that it's coming. It looks a lot like a T2'007 to me if you don't look carefully, though I think its design predates that car.

The car is completely different,
New bulkheads new chassis new topdeck new damping about anything is new!
The rdx proto car i ran now is the start car for the new RDX we had to test the things that they wonna get on the new car! So the car is awesome you saw it how it ran on the TOSW!

Greetings Ollie

Oh, sorry, I mean I can't tell anything new that we didn't already know from the other prototype picture we saw a couple of months ago. It definitely looks like there's a lot of new ideas on the car. I'm excited about it. I can't wait to hear more.

Anyone know of any surplus fastener type places to get spare screws and wheel nuts etc for this car? Paying $0.50 a fastener seems a bit much...

Rear bulkheads look alot like a Tamiya 415 MSX MRE. note the front center steering system. Also appears to have "quick diff access" feature.

Definately a rubber tire car.

The Corally small parts kit is a decent deal.

  • Since I am running the 4 mm chassis I also had to dremmel off some material so I could mount the servo (see green arrow in pic below)
  • Since I am running the offset motor mount, I had to dremmel off some of the material to clear the motor mount (see yellow arrow)
  • And I also had to dremmel out some material so I could loosen the battery brace rear screw (see white arrow)
Oh and for those that were asking, once installed and using hudy guages *full lock* the inner wheel is at 28 degrees, outer at 16 degrees ...I'm not sure how to "figure out" ackerman from that.







These intructions are great. Gonna do my centerpoint this week. What length steering rods did you use?
