I may be able to source 2 spare cars if the friend I gave it to hasn't thrown it out! The front A-arm plastic mount at the hinge pin is also weak on the car. That was were mine died and it was cracking on my friends car!

Thats one of the things putting me off getting a 414M! I may consider the new SV10....... if it ever gets to HKG!

I visited the Fo Tan track about a year ago. The track is still there but it is very deserted! It use to be a damn good place... shame about the lack of interest!

dtm, i didn't do very well in PYC on Sat too. My new Yokomo 8T was like 11T motor, no accel and no top speed. I think part of it is due to wrong combination of brushes and motor spring, the other part is a very loose (and very old) rear belt. I did find a better setting on my YM34 tho

in fact you may lower the ride high and limit down travel besides put on sway bar

I did drop the ride height a bit but no help (down to 4mm at the back at one point!)! The down travel has been the same for the last month. I think it may have been because I switched back to the Serpent shocks after running the car with Altas shocks for the last couple of weeks.
