by the way I am using RBX12T 5port engine, man this is a beast! it screams!
I guess i will try something different out next time i get to the track. My local track maybe about that demension and i was running a 16/19 49/45. I have a richey mt-12 9 port eagle and i think although dennis recommended those gears for the engine because it revs so high, it may need to be a lot lower for the size or my local track and it's straight. How does 17/21 49/45 sound. I might just try that and see if i can get the best or both worlds between acceleration and top end grunt.

I have a roll out gear ratio calculator in excel. It will find the correct tire sizes. over drive, gearing etc. Email me and I will send it to you. It is in excel and dummied down so it will work with my palm pilot at trackside. [email protected]

I think in general grease is better than silicon oil. Oil can seep into the clutch side of the diff rendering it usless. I am currently using Kyosho gear diff grease, I know some poeple like Racers Chioce Hyspin. Both are suitable!

I'm still kinda hesitant to run it at 240+. Should you do a compression test when the engine's dry or when it has some oil (after run oil)
Actually that kind of setup works using 26 in the front and 32 in the rear. But when your rear tyres are about to worn out well the oversteering will occur.

Regarding the engine.... never test the compression when its dry it will damage your piston sleeve and thats a very expensive part of our engines. Try testing your compression with an after run oil inside your engine

Hmmm difference??? Its like using a solid rear axle when it reaches the stretch and it runs smooth so you dont need to correct your steering everytime you're on a hi-spped part of the race track. And negative diff will automatically disengage when your rpm reduces.

For the rear turnbuckles I used the steel ones made for the Yokomo M2USA/M2 Type J. I did have to cut them down in length and also had to trim the ball ends a tad in order to get the correct size to fit the car. On the front I kept the stock parts. If you check some pages back, I posted a picture of the rear link. I would post it again, but I'm not at my home computer.

Thank you very much guys, but I need the titanium ones.
I am actually using the HPI racer I in the rear. I didn't need to cut anything. It fits perfectly, and I can adjust the camber since it has a hole in it. I'll post a picture when I get home this evening.
Last saturday I broke one of the front ones and i decided to replace for titanium in front and rear, for better looking too
I found that Lunsford makes them but I don't have the exact lenght to order them.
I'll keep you posted

Default Chassis

I picked a Kawahara chassis today when I went to the LHS. This is a nice looking chassis Beveled around all the openings, sloted for the front belt and a cooling hole for the engine. I took some photo's

I have others also.
