The black tape from Nexus Racing is WAY better than the TOP Racing tape.

One of the local racers here wrote the "M-powered touring car setup guide". This became the "xxx-main setup guide". He has all this now in an app for android and iPhone, called "RC car setup workbench"

Highly recommended.

All things being equal, moving the front wheels towards the middle of the car will induce understeer, moving the away will allow for more weight transfer to the fron wheels, possibly casue oversteer.

Default Spur help

First time I ever purchased and built an x-ray. Just noticed that all my spur gears do not fit the standard mount. Also that the lowest spur I can get is a 78t 48p. Thus my question is - I run spurs in the vicinity of 68-72t - is there an adaptor that would allow non standard X-ray gears to be used or is there a brand that will fit the t3 2012 other tha x-ray in the low 70's

See what the post man bring me today. Packaging looks good and the materials seems good as well. Can't wait to try it.

According to Martin Crisp's definition, droop is simply the vertical distance the chassis travels from the point it is sitting at rest to the point the wheel lifts off the ground, usually measured with a ride height gauge. Typically around 2mm is a good starting point. It controls weight transfer by limiting the amount the chassis rolls when transitioning through a corner. It is adjusted by the grub screws located towards the inside of the arms. Small adjustments go a long way here... I cannot answer with absolute certainty if downstop=droop but I (imo) view them the same.... I do hope this is helpful...
