  • it really depends on what kind of track your gonna run. ...for a fast track....I would get the Mielke pipe........for a short and technical track...I would get the Associated pipe.
  • Umm, did someone ask about pipes??
  • I've got this one mounted face down, but you may want to use a piece of strapping tape to secure the crystal. Wires are tie-wrapped and tucked away behind the receiver.


  • This one is mounted on it's side, shoe-gooed to the radio plate. The receiver is smaller than a Futaba PCM, so it takes up slightly less space.


  • My car suffers from High-speed understeer.

    No anti-roll bars

    40 sh front foam
    40 sh rear foam

    Protoform Stratus

    Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
  • Have you tried the front one-way?
  • No I haven't but it was what I was thinking as well.

    I am a bit worried about the brakes. We have a hairpin turn at the end of the straight. I might be able to try a friends one-way next week some time.
  • The Protoform Stratus has a lot of rear traction. Try the Andy/Yokomo 200mm Stratus. It has more steering.

    Also softer springs in the rear give U more steering. Try running silver or yellow springs in the rear.
  • You can also try less toe-in in the rear.
  • Chinuts: u're cars are powered by hamsters and u're powered by gerbles!! HAHAHAHAH j/k C-ya at Steve's..
  • I've solved my understeer problems. Here's what I changed.

    40sh front 42sh rear tyres

    #2 piston in front shocks

    more caster -- one large clip behind arm

    Seems to be a good set-up, can't wait till race day.
  • Track just after resurfacing.


  • acs: Wow, that's some track! Where is this? Looks extremely fast. I think the one-way would work great for all those sweeping corners. Which springs are you using?

    The track is in Brisbane, Australia. You'll notice that about 3/4 down the straight there is join in the track. This is where the touring cars turn as they don't run the long track, therefore there is a lot of braking leading into the corner. Thats the only corner where hard braking is necessary and maybe a little difficult to control with a one-way. I will see if I can try a friends one-way this weekend, which he just bought.

    As for the springs Brown (#ys-1750) front Grey (#ys-1755) rear.
  • Yeah, that's a pretty tight hairpin after such a long straight. You might want to set your brakes fairly soft to avoid locking up the brakes when using a front oneway + rear gear diff. A front oneway + solid rear axle setup will allow you to apply harder brakes though.

    The full layout looks really fun. I'm green with envy...wish we had a track like that in the US.
