Did you run against other Spada`s? What body did you run,i was wondering if the Porsche body or CRC would have an effect on anything.
Also the bearing is a 6X10 so if shouldnt be to hard to find.

One other guy brought his spada...but we werem't on the track at the same time. If we run this track we will need even taller gearing... still a blast.

The Prototype Spada had RC12 wheels on the rear, I think you can see the picture in this thread somewhere.Im shure Kyosho went with thier own wheel to corner the market to speak,that is also most likely why the body is just a bit bigger than a normal 1/12. That just an idea.

hi again guys,

decided to run the car stock for the time being.
except that i'm trying to fit in a K-factory low CG tank for V1R into the spada..
http://shop.rcshop.at/oxid.php/sid/1...%28V-One-R%29/

wanna ask, anyone running the sirio 09 racing exhaust kit?
wondering if thr might be an improvement in power for the stock engine.
might get the murnan modded 09 sometime in the future though...

I managed to get down to the local track today, and found i could not get on with the front one-way.
Our track is low grip at the moment (winter) and traction was low, its a tight track with chicanes and hairpins so brakes are really essential...when i got home i had a good look at the front one-way setup, and desided to make my own spool up.

http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c2...1/DSC00272.jpg
above are a couple of pics showing what i have done.
The one-way bearings are removed, and two 8x4 brass bearings used for each side, then a hole drilled and tapped for a grub screw to lock down the drive cup which i have dremeled a flat on.
Will get down the track tomorrow and report back...

A spool will let you brake... hard.. I really am interested in how that works for you.
