This is getting off the thread subject but one last comment, did your left eye pop out when she did that? I know the right one didn't since it was glued in.



I still don't know what those 2 As are talking about?

Also, we somehow got hold of the teflon brake pads here in Aust (must be left overs from world champs). Any one using these, I heard these are a must for the Pro, as they do not lock the brakes up.

Thanks
I'm using them. Doesn't grab like the stock black pads. Much better for the oneway.

Just out of curosity guys, why would Kenji use 30,000wt in his rear diff, and 10,000wt in his front diff on his setups at mugenseiki.com ?

What would this achieve?

you need to do this if you are running on a super high traction track with foam tires.

I use the scaled down 1/10th theory when I tell her how much I paid for my parts (eg engine $340, tell her engine $34)

easy. it must be the same effect as a looser ball diff at the front and a tighter diff at the rear. the heavier rear oil adds a bit more weight, makes tires spin less therefore the front spins easier/quicker. get the effect of a 2wd type car. car steers in quicker, initial response also quicker.

ok ok.... i'll leave now.......

sorry let me correct myself. it would give the effect of a fwd car. keeps the tail from spinning around since the front is spinning quicker than the rear the front will tend to lead as opposed the rear leading or pushing the car

Hi Guys,

I guess this is where everyone hangs out now that the HPI message forum is down We got some Kawahara hop-ups for the MTX-2 as well as some Mugen hop-ups back in stock for the MTX-2.
