It's obvious that two pit mans are faster then one pit man. Congratulations Garen. I wish a good luck and health for your childes. .

Thank you. I think in a few short years it will be one pit man and two racers instead of the other way around ;-)

Yeah, you want young drivers with older experienced pit men.

Default P8.0R

I recently got in my hands a Motonica P8.0R '08.
I finished assemblying it so I uploaded some photos in my blog.
Car is quite nice, well designed.
Parts quality (plastic parts mostly) is not as high compared to that of the electric cars I am used to, but after some work on a few parts it is working well now.




A few more pictures on the below link:

Pics looking good, but where is the Motonica logo on the front body mount?

Here are some pics of my Motonica which i recently upgraded to '08 specs.




I also got a tip to cut a couple of 0.1 clutch shims in halves and use them to free up the rear arms. On the picture below you can see where i put them. I was also told there where more Motonica drivers who did this. Are there more tips like these?

if you look at where the lower rear arms are mounted on the rear bulk support you can see them.(Click on the last pic to open it in a higher resolution.) on the right side i have them facing the rear and on the left to the right. there between the motonica rollcenter spacer and the rear bulk support. I only use the shims where it is needed. on the front i didn't have to use any and for the rear upper arm i used them only on the front screws.

I think the purpose of adding the thin cut shims is to free up the arms, if they bind once you have the rear end assembled.
I have found that if I have binding in the assembly, to loosen the screws which hold the rear lower arm mounts and the rear plate and then retighten. This normally does the trick.

Hi Garen,
i got to try your latest setup this weekend, minus the relocated rear body support. this helped reduce the on-power push.

the biggest changes for me were the -2 on front upper mount, more droop and more caster. also, the track had more grip than before(lots o vanilla syrup)

overall a great day (for me) no turn marshall assistance needed for 3 qualifiers and a 20min main, even got a couple of 15.9's before my clutch went out, i think this means i like the clutch with a larger gap (.6 or .7 with the orion spring)
