After 3 rounds of quals yesterday, Scotty Barrera in 2nd place at the Speedline GP. Weather permitting, hopefully he'll improve this time and position. Brad T also in the top 10 so far.

Scotty Barrera takes 2nd at the Speedline Race. I don't remember all the details but he battled with eventual winner for a good chunk of the race, had some motor issues towards the end. Great result for the Motonica team!

Default roll center shims

while the upper shim adjustments are a snap, does anyone see a trick to changing out the lower shims?

for the rear i have found the aft link is easy enough, but forward lower link forces you to remove the whole rear module.

for the front i have found it easiest to loosen the whole front module to swap the lower shims.

That's about right. I haven't found an easier way either, but fortunately I have only had to change the lower shims at a time where I needed to take the car apart anyway. I think a 'clip' type of shim would make it a breeze. Either way you need to reset the downstops and check the camber when you change the lower setting.

Hey guys, I see that everyone is having fun adjusting the lower arm rc shims huh?lol. Well, I made some shims that look like caster shims but of brass and can be loaded from the side so all you have to do is loosen the bolt, insert and retighten.Now all I have to do is get Brad T to make them in mass production soon and all that fussing with removeing the back half will be a thing of the past. So be on the look out for more more really cool products from YB slow soon.:

Here are some pics of my car:





Ran the engine in last Monday under very slippery track conditions, so i had to be easy on the gas. Overall the car felt completely different than the 1/10 car i ran before. But ill think that i just need to adjust my driving. I got my first race on Sunday so ill see how it goes.

The first batch of 08 upgrade kits are here as well as most or all the 08 parts and of course more P8.0R 08 kits. I'll be bringing the upgrade kits to Vegas for those who want to pick one up.

Default MOtonica 70-75 axles

These axles are 70-75 and milspec III hard anodized. They feature a 0,1 or 2mm offset adjustment and are fixed wheel (non-quick change)

These will fit any 1/8th car that uses a Mugen/Kyosho offset wheel and requires the use of a Mugen or Kyosho CVD bone.
