I normally try and get a decent no roll bar setting, then throw the bars on, always seems to make the car nicer on carpet.

I believe Kyosho driver Japan Adachi placed 3rd in the competitive JMRCA Japan Modified National few months ago (for reference, I believe Marc Rheinard, and Andy Moore were all in the B and C main)

3rd at the 2006 JMRCA? Well, that's exellent, especially against Masami and Hara and other great Japanese drivers...what about the Cleveland Champs, LIIC, Novak Race, DHI2007? Also, who are the Kyosho Team drivers, especially in the US?

Talking

Can anyone please post some pics of their actual Stallion? No factory driver cars please- just the regular cars we would get- need to see if it actually comes with aluminum bulk heads or the plastic ones, like the TF-5 shaft

-US Team drivers- Josh Cyrul, Ron Atomic, Jason Swift, not sure about any others..

-It comes with the top bulkhead pieces made out of plastic. You can buy the aluminium parts as hop-ups but the plastic ones will work fine.

Guys, I have been playing with the front and rear roll centers. The front and rear hidge pins are very low. So what I have found out is the lower the hidge pin are the more the car will roll and it has less traction.

To take away roll you need to raise the hidge pins which raises the roll center.
But there is a fine line . If you raise it to much you will traction roll.

I am running 2,2 in front and 3,3 in rear. I run medium bit asphalt.

Hope that helps..
