I'm a bit confused regarding these inline axles - can someone show me the difference between the kit version, and the inline version? Or, are they the same?

The kit axles are trailing axles. The axle is placed behind the king pin. This creates a force that makes the car keep going in a straight line.




The inline axles are larger in diameter and are drilled to let the king pin go right through the center. This eliminates any forces impacting the cars direction of travel. In Line axles make care react more quickly and be less stable.




WGT cars are already very stable so inline axles add some snappiness to steering inputs. Most racers run inline axles on other cars.

They are a tuning aid so you should try both and run what nets the fastest lap times.

True! Inline axles add a lot of steering reaction. I myself no use the set of CEFX on my Pro10 in which I use the same bearings for both axles but I can change the axle style to the steering arm. Maybe I will use this also on the RC10R5.1.

For now, I am still waiting for the kit to come in and first I will build it according to the manual. From there I move on...

These parts are straight from RC10.com so if you took a couple of minutes time to look at that page you could find it yourself

Well... I am in the Netherlands and we have the same problem but these parts are seen on the parts-page of the car. Sold everywhere in the world online so... I usually get my parts through Thunder Tiger Europe in Germany. Lot's of stores do business with them. I believe that Action Model Centre in the UK is also a retailer for AE.

Got mine yesterday when I came home from work. Today offcoarse, the build. First thing I always do is put it together the way the manual says. After that the car will get "build". There are always small things that need changing or adjusting so that will come soon.

For now the car only has the steering servo (Graupner DES676 BB). No futher electronics yet but I will be driving it indoors with 2S shorty lipo and a 13,5 motor. Bodies are on the way so more info will follow soon!







Greetz!

No one in the States runs Graupner servos. They work well for you? Have you compared them to Futaba or Sanwa?

The Graupner DES676 BB is exactly the same servo as the Airtronics 94819 servo. I have not compared it to Futaba or Sanwa but I did drive it in a 12th. scale. It is strong enough and fast enough.

It will work fine!

Thanks for the info. I just want you to know that I still hate all you guys because you get to run Pro10 on those great tracks over there.
