I hope you post again soon Stefan! Definitely great report and post.
Hello Harry,

-I did raise the body even more than 2 mm, i raised it 8mm.
And it is indeed very stable.

-Robin used the standard set-up which worked out the best overthere.

-I will post a report after the Dutch GP.
Thanks you appreciate it.

Greetz Stefan.

- Oh wow, 8mm? And you still had less steering??? Have you tried moving the body forward? Have you thought about using the Parma R12 body? It is very similar to the P909 body in respect that it is a closed cockpit design, without the retarded midget driver. In addition, the front end has the same design as the Parma R11 body, meaning much more downforce and steering in the front if you move the body forward 5mm (I think that was what Garen recommended).

- When you say standard setup, what do you mean by that? The setup you start out with after building the car, based on the instruction manual?

- Thanks for your efforts! I can't wait to see how the Dutch Grande Prix ends!

Here is some great news about the Motonica P81!

Source: Merlin Fuel
http://news.merlinfuel.com/2009/04/e...onroad-1st-rd/

Spanish Championship 1:8 Onroad 1st Rd.


The opening round of the Spanish 1/8th scale National series was held last weekend at Club Pical Track in Valladolid. The race saw over 70 drivers registered.

The sunny weather all along the weekend let the drivers enjoy a nice racing weekend.

Sergio Montesinos got the TQ during classifications, followed by Victor González, Oscar Cabezas and current Champion Josué Artiles.

Oscar Cabezas had to fight against the clock to set up his brand new Motonica P81, received a few days before the race. The fastest cars (Oscar Cabezas and Josué Artlies) recorded 104 km/h in the main straight during the A-Final.

Josue Arrtiles and Óscar Cabezas took the first and second position in the very first laps of the main final and the set a peace that none else could follow.

Both them were very close but the tire changing stop was faster for Josue Artiles, who won a few seconds to allow him to face the rest of the race with some advantage.


We saw an interesting fight for the third place involving three drivers. Finally, former Spanish Champion, Victor González got the third place ahead Nacho López and Sergio Montesinos.

It seems that this season will be exciting and a close fight until the end of the Championship is expected.

The final result:

1 JOSUE ARTILES 153 45:11.202 Mugen
2 OSCAR CABEZAS 152 45:03.926 Motonica/Novarossi/Merlin Fuel
3 VICTOR GONZALEZ 151 45:11.632
4 NACHO LóPEZ LLUCH 151 45:13.159
5 SERGIO MONTESINOS ORTEGA 150 45:15.010
6 ISRAEL SOLÍS GÓMEZ 146 45:09.529
7 FRANCISCO JAVIER HIDALGO BONET 136 45:00.416
8 VICENTE ERES (M40) 136 45:10.961 - Motonica - Merlin Fuel
9 CARLOS PERACHO HERAS 128 45:03.522
10 FRANCISCO LARA (M40) 42 12:47.137

Congratulations to Oscar Cabezas for such great work with a car he only received days before the race. I guess this is a good sign that setting up the P81 is not going to be too big of a deal.

Thanks John,

Here are some pictures of my car a day before the race.
Also the Gio clutch, which worked perfect.

Oh wow, nice pictures Stefan! That car beautiful is!

How much foam tire did you shave off? It looks like you still have a lot of foam left.

How is that P909 body working for you as well? Are you having steering issues like some people are complaining about?

They weren't. Italy is in the Mediterranean. Somalia is not. The ship that was hijacked was not in the Mediterranean.

And in case the ship with the Motonica cars was hijacked, I hope Europe gets their head out of their ass and nukes Somalia for not controlling their pirates. Either that or send Ethiopians in there. They already kicked Somalia's ass once without even trying. They could do it again.

But anyways, I am hoping this car comes in before Easter. I am getting super anxious now. But I highly doubt it will be here before Easter. Probably next week, when my Hudy engine break-in stand comes in... if it does...

Actually, Motonica has been doing quite well in a lot of places (except America since the cars are not here yet...).

But they will be in people's hands soon here... hopefully very soon.

I received my kit lastnight and started to build it and so far so good. I only spent about 45 minutes on it because I was really tired, but I got most of the front together.

P.S.
Harry this time its for real I did receive the first kit in the US

Are you using Loctite on the plastic??????

Well that is good that you have the kit and building it now. I hope I get mine before the first big race. I am going to take a day off work to break in the engine, run the car, and dial it in. Only thing in my way is work and if they give me the day off!

By the way, what is a good weight/speed servo to use on 8th scale on-road cars, as well as for throttle? Are the screws hex or are they phillips?

No you dont need to use loctite on the plastics. And for the servos I'm using Airtronics 94758 for both throttle and steering.
