Actually to keep away for my wife

Im saving up to go interstate next weekend for a big meet (tropheys/cars to win). Too lazy to change my setup. Still got one-way and 100k in the rear. Everyone who has raced at this track, is telling me this combo will not work. "Master NR will make it work" is my response

if the track you are going to race on has normal to low traction, you will have trouble.

Its a Carpark from what I've been told. Traction is low

Last time I raced at a carpark was 3 years ago.

Taking off the one way and replacing it with a diff, plus removing and changing rear diff to 5000wt-10000wt oil will take forever.

I picked up some softer tyres today (now trying GRP Gindardi 40front/35 rear). Im hooked to FAST tyres, but just want to make sure the Gindardi's arn't better (from what I've been told, they are the exact same tyres anyway)

Biggest problem with the PRO that all the racers are complaining about here at our club - removing the wheels!!!

you may keep your front one-way but you need to soften your rear diff oil to around #5000 or so.

These arms are so you can use 32mm foam on the rear of the Mugen.

RB Fuel, $50/5 litres (Jungle Jooze)

All in NSW.
Thanks for replying Mr NR. Is "Jungle Jooze" another name for RB fuel or is it another brand which is similar? $10 per litre is pretty good price! Any Australian online hobby shops have this or any body around Brisbane use this fuel?

RB Distibutor in Australia is Randall.

Here is the site - http://www.genisys.net.au

It tells you which hobby shops in Australia deal with him. Jungle Jooze im pretty sure use RB fuel (no 100% sure).

For Mugen gear, best and cheapest place is www.adrenalinracing.com

There webpage hasn't been updated for years but there is a contact number and email address there (located in Sydney as well)

I know the Kerr's in QLD are the Mugen dealers there.

Thank you once again NR, you have been very helpful. The race you are going to interstate wouldn't be in QLD would it? How do you find out when and where races are on? Sorry for what must seem like stupid questions but I am just getting started in this!!

Thats cool dude. I was in QLD 3 months ago for the State Titles. Im down to Canberra next week for DSI/Meca Finals (big meet) and then off to Melbourne in January for the Vic State Titles.

Good Aus mag is called 'Racing Lines' which comes out 9 times a year. It shows all future meets and Aust hobby shops.

Hopefully Nitro Dave brings down his camera this weekend when we go together to Canberra. Get some pics and videos (could be a laugh on this track because of the one-way/100k combo )
