Hey cheers KWT,

the question to the head protectors is Mugen Sekei product found right here: http://www.rc-mushroom.com/product_i...oducts_id=4699

Small price to pay but it sure helps save any scratches or dents on a rollover.

Car looks great. You might want to angle the ears on the rear body mount up so that the body rests on them.

cheers Garen, i tried to angle them but they dont fit, well they hit rather bad and doesnt allow me to place the body pins on, i think the body is a tab too far towards the back as i might have gone about 10mm too far but never the lessi might place some support blocks/spounge to give it the added support it needs.

Did you try swapping the ears left and right and then trying the different mounting positions? If you did mount the body too far back you might experience understeer.

ill give it a shoot- as for the front understeering this i will have to test but the measurement from the bumper to front of the body is like 3-5mm

could always add some lead weights to compensate it


cheers on the tip Garen

Got it to work Garen, also added a nice support strip of soft foam along the rear body post.

Congrats to Bryon Nakahara for winning the Sportsman 1/8th class at the KO Propo Race this past weekend at Crystal Park with his P81. Despite a horrific crash which saw his car go off the track and parts go into the river behind the track, Bryon managed to get the car put back together and ready for the main on Sunday, which he won by a number of laps.

One week to go until the Paris Memorial in Las Vegas. The Motonica Team will be there. Myself and Steve Jackson will run the open class, Bryon Nakahara and Gary Andersen will run Masters, and we'll have a special guest team driver in Master's as well. There may be 2 more Motonica drivers joining us if all goes well.
