Not to undo all the hardwork put forth in everyone's search for reverse threaded taps....but why not chuck the turnbuckle in a drill and slowly work the turnbuckle in and out of the ball cup. A drop or two of brearing oil....work slowly to keep the plastic cool. No money spent on tools if you already have a drill.

They are so tight it wont do much good. You need the tap to cut the inside to the right diameter.

Taps are cheap and everyone should have a couple in their pit box in the right threads for their cars.

Nice I ran similar set up ony mi4 the only difference I ran the esc behind the lipo , perfectly balanced. It was good for 13.5 and 17.5 blinky , boosted mod was borderline with run time but I was using just a 4,000 pack.

Two small questions for you: This track seems to have a good grip. Are you feeling your rear train slipping? Are you using long upper links in the rear?

That was in fact the point of my question... I've never seen a such low cornerspeed... Did you try to use the inside hole on the rear knuckle?

It would probably lower the rear grip but it also will give you a better cornerspeed...

There are only a few, but that's one thing I'm quite sure about...

Yesterday I had my first race with my S1. Finished first in C-final

Not because of the S1 (drove amazingly!), but because Ive drove a zero-boost ESC in a boosted class.

The only option parts were 3racing Double-Joint-cardans, alloy-damper housings, steel pivot-balls and Tamiya ball-cups.

I had the cheapest car in the field, but was able to overtook some BD7s during a 7minute run...

Regards,

Chris

because i'm running ride 28r tyres in hot temp track...track temp is 60deg celcius..

i cant push much as i only have 1 set tyres for 3 amain final...

i vote to use 28r because it have better traction than other shore...like 32 n 36.

i flip the front and rear arm..to avoid hitting the wheel..im also running 2.5 toe in rear.
