Hey!

Nice to hear from you again!
I've been following this thread very closely, and since I've been racing the Motonica for the past year, I'll be glad to help you guys in whatever I can.

Tips:

1 - Regardless the change of the chassis screws, I advice you to countersunk the holes in the chassis a bit deeper, so that the screw heads don't touch the ground.

2 - The rear body mount has usually some end play (between the body mount and the support arms where the pin goes) that can be removed using one or two small shims. This action prevents the boy mount from poping off the guiding pin.

3 - I highly recommend the rear belt tensioner (will save lots of $$$ on new belts), the ergal middle shaft support (which is also the exhaust pipe spring support) and the ergal front bulks linkage (which will save a lot of time when you need to replace the front belt).

4 - I've tested some springs from Motonica and other manufacturers, and at my home track the Mugen white work best, however, the front springs are a bit smaller, and they require a more compressed front shocks.

5 - Take some care with both the 2-speed and front one way (lube them often and you'll be fine)

6 - When I changed to the Motonica, the first thing I noticed (besides the quality of the parts) is that this car has lots and lots of steering - I personally like this, but you can dial some of the steering off, simply by changing the front top 2mm shims with 1mm shims.

If I remember something else, I'll post it for you guys!

Many of the Motonica cars at the Worlds were using black wheels. Anyone know what brand they were?

I'd sure like to know too. White wheels look terrible. Red, orange, or black would be nice.

There is a new US distributor. The formal announcement is coming soon so no worries there. I jumped on mine already.

Looks like they are a brand called Cosmic. Anyone know if they are available anywhere in the U.S.?

There might be some Cosmic tires in this first shipment ;-)
I am pretty sure the black wheels are the lightweight wheels. Not to pre-judge them, but I don't know if they will be strong enough for use on US style tracks- boards, sheet metal, etc. Euro tracks generally don't have these type of barriers.

Dude, that is way killer man! I was wondering what you were going to do. I'm sure glad that things worked out for you man. Your a great assett for us Motonica owners. Unfortuneatly we didn't get to spend much time together at the Nationals, but that's how it goes usually at a big race. I look forward to racing with you again dude. Glad to see you didn't fall off the face of the earth. Keep in touch man, it's great to know your still going to be around. Plus with you and Brad together, HELL YEAH!!! I doesn't get any better then this. We are all looking forward towards some killer parts man. I have a few ideas as well, but knowing you guys...your already past that stage. Good to hear from you bro! Later for now.

Default Cosmic Tyres

The black wheeled tyres are indeed Cosmic tyres and they are sold by Motonica.
Besides the kits and spare parts, Motonica also deals 2 brands of tyres: X-Tyres (in yellow/green wheels) and Cosmic tyres (normal and lightweight).
Only the lightweight tyres come in black... sorry...

I've never tried the Cosmic tyres, since we have an huge stock of X-Tyres, but according to the manufacturer, these Cosmic tyres get up to temp faster than the X-Tyres. Do they worth the extra buck??? Maybe...
