It's still being developed, it's not available to buy yet.
It will be improved before it hit's the stores.

I have them in my car, together with aluminum pins. Haven't ran the car yet but the quality of the parts is outstanding.
I asked Tosolini about the durability of the diff gears and he told me they hold up fine.
I will probably inspect them before every race though and change them mid season, just to be sure.

Default 2010 spec clutch question

Hi Guys

My old nt1 08 had 2 holes in the flyweights, i noticed my 2010 has 2 holes and they are shorter. IM guessing they now sit between the pins instead of over the pins?

I ran this at Crystal Park, should be a good starting point... Too bad I haven't yet been able to make it out to Vegas

You sure about that? Last time I checked all my clutches swiveled around the pins... Even the high dynamic clutch....


Is that a new high dynamic clutch?

Actually you're right, you can use either hole to pivot on my bad proves to show I don't even use it lol

Was about to hit my head against the wall... Anyways, two holes are provided for two different mounting options.

Personally, I mount them backwards like Salven showed on his videos on clutches. Gives a much more aggressive feel.

But out of curiosity what is the purpose for this?

I can't tell because I did the Audi A5 with regular tamiya paint and the R5N with the new paint but I think the Audi is lighter from the start because it's thinner.
After painting they came out equal though, both weighing 103 grams so the paint is lighter but don't know how much.

Here is the R5 I just finished up, the light paint is really thin, so I had a couple of bleed throughs.




Now only the weather has to cooperate, because I'm completely ready to drive. Rain predicted for tomorrow and sunday.
