With the one-way (standard) installed the car has loads of turn-in but as with any one-way car it is a bit lose in the rear. Not in an out of control way though, you cant expect any car with a one-way installed to be totally planted when you back off the throttle and turn in, and the 'Cuda is easy to get back in shape when you power on out of the corner.

Hi John,

There is a hint there, don't back completely off the throttle allways stay on the throttle around corners, break in a straight line if you have to. Or preferably adjust your lines so you can stay on throttle (partial at least) all the time.

Works for me.

Alternatively adjust your transmitter to have the car roll forward even at neutral. This should help keep the car planted since the car should still be in 4wd mode when you let go of the throttle.

Manually controlling the throttle as suggested by defMondo is still the best option for maximising corner speed. Of course you will have to practice more to pick the best line.........

That's it, and what ever you do never let go of the steering when your getting back on to the straight always steer the car straight.

Isn't that right Itchy

Default Thin one-way shaft

Hi All,

I would like to check if anyone ever break the front one way shaft-cup?

I use an MRT VX Pro, a UK made speedo, very popular here because it's reliable and fully water proof. It has an awful lot of setup options too. Not quite as light as something like an M-Tronics Cube or as small, but it's still a decent size so you should have no problems locating it. I actually have my reciever on top of the servo but thats because my electronics are currently held on by strong velcro, so I can swap them quickly into my RC Lab if needed and so I place the speedo in the position it sits most securely with the wires to the motor pushing on it least.
I want to get myself a futaba 9550 servo, this would give the electronics plenty of room, keeping the reciever further away from the motor than when using a normal sized servo.

Hi Guys,

I run Keyence Zero V-Extreme in all my cars, and that's pretty much all I've been running for the past three years. Very reliable, compact and does not require a external capacitor.

Steve,
Not all of us have our own shop where we can grab a $185 esc off the shelf whenever we feel like it.
