I can't compare with the old arms because i haven't tried them, but the Shin, IMHO out of the box with longer front than rear arms (the original stallion had same length arms f/r) pushes a lot, but I can't really tell what putting the new arms on the normal stallion as a lot more things have been changed, steering, mass balance etc... I guess it'll make the car safer though.

as far as i'm concerned, I'm running tamiya short LW front wishbones which helped a lot with the steering issues.

Well I'm running the Shin right now but with the long rear arms. Haven't even tried the short ones yet. What all did you have to do to make the Tamiya short front arms work on the car?

To fit them all you need to do is re-drill the outer hinge pin hole to 3mm, and shave a bit on the inside of the arm so that the C-Hubs don't bind.

How much of the front tires are you saucing with Jack with your setup?

about 80% with carpet jak, and I also glue the sidewalls of the front tyres to prevent grip roll.

I used corally Carpet Jak and that sauce had so much frip that my car grip rolled sveral times. I was saucing 100% front and rear tires. I used LRP´s Blue Factor before.
Maybe that sauce is better for me. I am still new to setups and so on.

maybe it is good with corally carpet jak on the rear and Blue Factor on front? We in sweden drives with Xerox 28 tires.

How many PPM?

Are you sure they're not Sorex 28 or Xenon 28? I use both with this setup and both perform well enough. The trick to avoid grip rolling is to apply a bead of glue on the outer sidewall of the front tyres.

lol, i mean Xceed 28 :P hehe.

So i dont glue on top of the tire then? On the side of the tire to make it sronger?

And can i sauce the tire 100% or do i have to sauce 80%?

The track iam going to have fast and high grip corners so it grip rolls much.

I Am using LRP Blue Factor

Yes only the side wall of the tyre, this is to prevent the tyre from grabbing, which is the main reason for grip roll. Beware of the fact that for constant behaviour of the car this should be done before every run as the glue wears off...

As for the amount of additive, it all depends on how much steering you want.

I'm using Jack and only saucing 80% of the front tires and 100% of the rears. Seems to be the most consistent for my setup and home track. I was at a race a few weeks ago that had VERY high traction and was a large open track, and I was only saucing 50% of the front tires. I personally am not a big fan of gluing the sidewalls just because it's near impossible to get it exactly the same every time. Just play with different amounts of sauce on the front tires and try the sidewall glue as well. You'll never know how it effects the car until you try it!

Yes, i heard the car Steen Graverseen and Shin Adachi is driving is a prototype for 2009. I have heard the new car will come start of 2009 somewhere. Maybe i am wrong but thats what i heard from Kyosho Sweden.

the new car gor much better spool too. The chassies is almost alike the Shin Edition. Just some small adjustments on the new car.
