whoo ho today run car super nice altho i have traction problems ......
dunno leh on tramac it felt good ...... but on cement ... diff story ..

windtalker what setting u use on 414m ah ???
care to share ???
hehehe i will be doing some crazy test when i have the time ...

at basketball court i was ok when i cocentrate ... but when i figure out how to set up car while driving .... HAHAHA car was like all over - cut track here and there !!!!!!!!!!!
hahaha

the data colected is recorded in my head ... then replayed when i get back to be written on paper and then analysed to see where to go from there ....
gathered bits of data on slipery surface ...
but nothing much on med-high traction surfaces...
i will need to do more testing ....
heheheh

ijnek ... mite not need hi speed servo after a proper setup ...
a bit slow response but its better 4 me ...
- easier to control ...

ok thanks for the hex driver ijnek ... i shortened the wheelbase and now waiting for chance to test it out .... maybe next week ...
no need new body

figured why i was gettin sudden overstearing when i carefully check out car .... my REAR tire is stuck to body cause its too long ...
the concave cut is for a shorter chasis version (binding)

now i will be looking for a setup to hook the car up (stick tires to ground ) then ..
like my kawada already

pan car like FEEL ... maybe mite try to achive thet ... but it depends if i can drive it well or not ....
when i got it right i will post setup here ....
hehehehehehe (cheat conering)

horniez... ijnek took me and roy to eat the roti canai near pelangi area... looked like ........ um ..... heheheh
but taste REALLY nice...

ahh i also try ijneks car ....
really hooking up well PLUZ it has a super sharp kinda response ....
hehe but hard 4 me to get used to it....
me=old man's driving style ...
super slow, relax, smooth, -unexciting driving style ....
my reflexes a bit slow maybe hehehe ...

his car ...just go to coner dot then PULL tru again keep doing this well and u will shooting here and there ! ... no need to space for turning radious ... as long as the front tire goes ahead slightly from marker TURN then the car pulls tru .... very aggerasive ....
super solid....

roys car ... also super quick response
altho it slide a bit but can drive more aggerasively ...
can really dive into coners .... !
he was FAST man -hardly see his bumper....
then we got into a dog fight... eehhh no.. no car fight british/malaysian(roy-lotus) car vs american car(me-dodge stratus) as ijnek said ...
the japanese car (ijnek-skyline) dun understand english so he left us alone behind ... LOL.... ijnek seized the chance to break off....

soli-lah roy ... my car was really feeling quirky then ... tire losing grip like crazy ... dunno where i was going ....
i think it was overheating cause after a brief stop/slowdown it feels ok again - still think it was the wrong tire for the surface...hm .. should have bought my 'dusty track tires' along ...

for me, my car also looked super slow when driving alone .... feels boring one..... and veli easy to spin out ....
dunno how ijnek and roy feel when they try my car ....

hm ..... i checked my pinion gear to confirm my gearing ......
the earlier heat i was using 46 pinion with 112 spur which gives a FDR of 5.18/5.2 motor like melting ... :wierd: weather hot maybe....
then i chaged to '36' not '26'
which gives a ratio of 6.62...


u guys r using 120/40 so its 6.39........me also stock motor...
drive frequency is 4.5 and power limitor is at 70%

wished there was more traction and a more hi-speed track and more pple... then MORE FUN!

car keep losing grip during acceleration after i change pinion to a smaller one

will post update once i get the setup rite...

imataquito:
i suggest tat u remove the front n rear anti-roll bar bcos they cause understeer...
mayb move the front shock position 1 hole inward...
should help 2 improve ur steering...

i wun b getting into nitro,...love the music of a well-tuned engine n the engineering aspect of nitro really beats electric,but i can't afford the time...

my 04r is pretty well setup now.mayb i will need 2 change to a softer spring at the rear when we run at dataran.not sure if i will get used 2 it,but i sure know tat i dun like it when i was running at basketball court last sat.

neither would i go into nitro...
too much time & money needs to be invested into it...

strange enuf... i dun really like the sound of the nitro engine...
i find it abit noisy...

i prefer the hissing sound emitted by a belt-drive car...
*hsssssss* wah... turns me on man!!!
hehehehehehe...

By the way, by imataquito removing his anti roll bar... wouldn't it make his car more un-predictable??? hmmmm... understeer? turn into the corner earlier lor... or get a more powerful motor to induce a power slide... hmmm...

imataquito,
wanna try out my 12turn kawada motor?
hehehehehhe...

regards,
horniez
