Yep just came back from the South Island Champ here in NZ...

First trophy for the Stinger. Most noticeable difference with the new Delrin diff is the net weight, almost drop it another 20 g.

The drivetrain was smooth before and it is smoother again.

one of the guy had it free spinning (forward) for over 20sec

Third I came... could have been better, but still trying to get the handling right, quite twitchy.

I was running a one way, but would love to try a Spool...

Congratulations!
Thats a fine result.

I hope to be driving my Stinger with at spool this weekend.
I'm attending a race on saturday, and a small Club-race on sunday. So I'll be able to give some sort of "test report" late sunday/monday, on how it handles with the spool - if I get it in time...

Dont know if you guys have noticed, but Alex Racing have updated their website, they also have some nice titanium axles available for the Stinger.
So, with delrin/alu diffs and ti axles looks like the Stinger can go on a crash diet
This car will be great for stock racing with the lightweight drive and the superb handling too. 3rds will soon become 1sts!!

well i think the Titanium bits will help, but more importantly is the Aluminium C Hub.... I think I could have done better if I had a bit more confidence in the car. Broke 3 C-Hub that weekend (mainly due to bad driving by me though)...

Try Kevs Racing Bits, they may still have some stock. If not Centre Point have R3 rear hubs that are a direct replacememt, well, they actually lower the rear roll centre and are a good thing to try.
If not, send me a pm, I have a couple lying around you can have.

Dan,
I believe there is something in the pipeline on the speedo front, you should hopefully hear something soon from the guys.

R/C the Stinger has great potential, I have all three cars and the Stinger responds quicker and has a better direction change than the R2 or R3. Some may describe it as twitchy, but its easy to dial in to a circuit. At least now that they have got the ackeman angles right the steering rack system isnt so much of a pain. Plenty of lock on the car now!!

Nice to see that the car finally has enough steering throw. I know my R3 didn't have enough throw with the stock steering rack.
