a lot to learn to tune the car then

How to solve the problem that ... my car seems .. oversteer when existing a turn?
Mount the rear camber link higher on the hub?
or... decrease the droop by make the rear shock longer?

Will try out the blues (14.5lbs) in the rear this weekend because the car still has too much grip in the back. I'm running 1.5 deg toe in for the back. It is like driving a train with 2 deg!

Will also try and go up to 40wt oil (from 30wt) because the chicane response is too slow. Fine for single bends....
Shorten the rear camber links. #2 holes in the shock tower and the inner hole in the rear uprights.

Run the rear arms in the full forward position.

Stand the rear shock up a hole in the shock tower.

Don't run Purple fronts with Silver rears.

Don't run the low roll centers in the rear.


Hmmm broke the chassis? How fast were you going? What did it have in it? An MTO?

hmmm...great minds think alike...I have tried everything on your list already! (except for the springs....for today! ). I may try a rear roll bar if I can be bother to stop off at MK before the track today..

As for the chassis breaking...9T...end of straight....clipped the corner....6ft launch....side of car into a concrete barrier when it landed.....get the picture!! Actually the chassis broke because the battery flew out and hit the side of the tub...

One more thing...the insets have a lot to do with the traction too. Yok 039F are good but you will be lucky if you can re-use them once. I am using Sorex Type C Med or Firm...these appear to give me much better wear patterns and grip...also they are almost like new after wearing out one set of tires!
I sometimes ran HPI orange inserts and they also give better tire-wear to 039F!
DTM: I've bought Sorex Type C medium already, can't wait to test them!

Mingfinity: How about installing a front roll bar first?

Ernest: My tooth care tips are to brush every morning/night for 5 minutes and stay away for sweet food! Touch wood, I've been to dentist for nearly 15years lar! Oops... out of RC topics!

Yeah Yeah... no mood to go out of office...

Have you picked up your Losi spur-gear adapter yet? I saw it last night at MK, will the word 'state-of-art' be exaggerating??
