Smile DE support tuned

Hi all!

I tuned the DE and Kyosho bumpers in this way:

a) Standard DE rear plate + the front one being cut, plus:
b) the Kyosho original one cut to prevent the DE support to bend too much since it's too soft.

It works quite well and it lasts much more.

Regards,

The 91 mm dont get those just run the universals i would only get the center cvds 84 and 110 and run the standard universals on the front rear
And yes the kit comes with alum. Rear toe in plate
Just need the upper rear front holder that comes plastic in kit

Default Skid plates

I feel that aftermarket bumpers and skid plates are a waste of money and time. This buggy reacts to ride height so well, what do you think the 2+mm thick does to the performance??????? Just run the thing and race your A$$ off, when its time for a chassis,,,,,,,, well get a new one. 100 bucks for a chassis 2 times a year is not worth worring about chassis wear. Think about the money spent on tires throughout the year??????? You wouldnt use a lesser of a tire just to save a couple hundred bucks in the course of a year.

Just food for thought.

Short tracks that really have no straightaway.

For general purposes, lets say anywhere that has a lap time of 20secs. or less. Or a straightaway that is 65' or less.

Unhappy Body cracking

Does anyone have a secrete to stop the bodies from cracking? I tried the stock body and bitty designs both crack in the same spot were the rear section rounds up to the tail.

When you cut out the body, leave more material where it curves up towards the tail. Dont follow the cutout lines ! It makes it to thin right where it cracks.

I left plenty of material on the stock body, it lasted no time.

Running the JC Punisher for RC8 on mine now; works perfect and handles properly now

Kyo also has a reinforcing material thats like an epoxy jelly pad. Works good too.

Does anyone know where I could find a good company to get some parts hard anodized? I tried contacting zig racing a few times with no responses back.
