Had the car out on carpet for some modified foam practice. I gotta proclaim the SD as one of the toughest cars ever! Very durable.

Anyone have theirs out on carpet, modified with foams yet? Curious to hear feedback on their experiences.

I got to test drive mine on Sat. The track has not been driven on since March so not alot of traction. The car felt pretty good. Our first warm up race is this Friday so I will get a full shake down once the track grooves up.

Protoform Dna Shell.

I am trying to elimate the edgey feel of a kyosho stallion with a one way for another driver. As he is an new starter I am wondering if the DNA shell gives the car more agression when cornering i just have to touch the steering and the car turns. Note it running a one way on carpet i manged to change the setup to lose the front endyness of the car it want to turn like a 1/12th scale with kit setup.

I did the following

took the front and rear roll bar off
moved the front shock in one
increased the droop from 4mm to 5mm
set front ride height 5mm and rear to 5.5mm
I could make it understeer more by either increasing the wheel base or changing the shock oil to slow the roll but i don't want to change the grip and handling too much

I am wodering the what the best way to raise the front roll center as i think this would be the next thing to play with.

i really think it need a spool or a front diff to suit the driver style of driving.

It running on sorex 24r on medium grip carpet the cureent setup feels awsome for me but i need it to handle an agressive style stock driver.
Also how loose can i go with the belts from kit setting

I would go for this before messing around with the geometry - a one-way is ALWAYS going to be edgy for a new driver on carpet. Diff is most forgiving and will take away a bit of steering too. Spool is in the kit of course.

The spool lasted one lap at sharley park! And the front c hubs why so much play in them we need about 2mm of spacer to take the play out of it.

Check you have the grub screw tightened. I have a 0.1mm shim on the hubs, no idea how you would need 2mm.

The included plastic spool is nothing but crap, i broke mine when passing another car and we barely touched each other...
I hope the Alu spool and diff joints are coming soon.

The plastic outdrive do not look like they will hold up. I think you can make the zx-5 steel ones worn if you use zx diff rings. Cant wait for Alu. ones. Race on Friday, will report on progress.
