Good run this weekend Carl. U gotta try the central. It really felt good! I ran the R10 in quals and it's very stable. I just feel I can go a lil faster with the central. I used the central in the main. I wish I had worked my setup around the central more. Next time I will. Good 2 c u back at the top!

Thanks Pooh...felt good getting the car back to a good starting point. I wish I had a few more qualifiers to try some other small changes. You ran strong again this weekend...

I'm going to stick with the R10 and adjust the chassis. I like to look and feel of the R10...in Vegas I used the "wip" (sp?) body and struggled.

For those interested...at 301 my set-up was a follows:

oil: 700fr / 600r
pistons: stock
droop: 0fr / 9r
tires: 35fr / 37r fast GRP
camber: 1.8fr / 3.0r

The engines where a Novarossi 35 Plus 21 and a JP FX 21 R03.

Both engines were in excellent condition.

I never had this happen to me in three years time.

The only fundamental thing I changed was that i ran the Sirio 2013 exhaust on both engines. Normally I run the Novarossi 2052 exhaust all the time.


Do you think the exhaust can cause such breakage ? Because two engines in a couple hours time is a bit far from bad luck.

Or do you know of other reasons why a liner would break in half ?

Best regards
holy sh!%.!!!!Im no xpert but that does seem 2 b abit burnt??2 different motors in 1day.eliminate the possibility of a factory flaw.2 diff motors.could we maybe get an xpert to give his opinion on what could have caused this!!!this is scarey.

A couple pages back some guys were asking about the rear CVD's and their reliability. So far I have about 4 gallons on mine and they seem to be holding up well. A little wear but no more than the front usually gets. I have run them on bumpy and smooth tracks.

Drive slow at the first tanks until you start to get the feeling of the car isn't a bad tip, other tip is to avoid the most powerful engines too.

On a 1/8 everything happens almost at the speed of light, is very demanding on your reflexes and puts into test your nerves, drive slow, know the track and how the car react.

Burn many tanks, tyre sets until you see you can control it, others on the track could be quicker than you, ignore them (at least on those moments), look how the quick (and good) triggers of your local track go thru the turns, you can learn a lot looking how others drive and compare with yourself to extract information.

Your best hop-up is the practice, use the money for buying fuel and tyres not to get optional parts.

hey Corse thanks for your advise, do you think i can make a perfection turn by just practicing the same corner rather than the whole track, coz sometimes will really get frustated by alot of mistake.

Do the whole track, better to practice with a whole track rather than a turn (this could be boring). Doesn't matter if you do a lot of mistakes, is a matter of starting slow and slowly going quicker and quicker, in less time than you would mind, you will do the whole track at a reasonable pace, could be not the quickest gun of your track, but is a matter of practice, practice and practice.
