I guess we've tried a few different tyres - all the GRP's are OK. The Active's wear longer and I like the stiff rim, though they can break. The ZAC's are the same Japanese rubber, I believe. They certainly handle/wear the same as Active, but the rim is too flexible, I reckon. When they go "wonky", they're finished. Haven't tried Enetti's - some swear by them.

Rumour has it that the ODonnel engine is manufactured by Thunder Tiger.

How is the traction when you run this setup, seems to me you need lots of turn in with the your front setting. btw what shocks oil did you use?

Traction is good! In fact too good in the rear the car would not rotate which is why I used 50K in the rear diff.

During this testing I remained with the 50wt shock oils

I am not pretending to be the fastest guy at Brendale, but the car felt pretty nice to me!

You need new diff shafts VZ118. The rest you have or you get in the conversion kit.

My tyres seemed to be coning outwards... what do I do to rectify this? More or less camber (i'm guessing less).... I'm pretty sure it's at 2 degrees at the moment. Then again... I was using the 35 Shore tyres, whether that has anything to do with it .

you need more camber. 2' rear camber is definitely not enough on foam tire. for your information, i have 4' rear camber and my tire runs flat and with very good cornering speed.

i think you dont need to worry about how much camber you run as long as your car runs great. see how much rear camber the 1:1 race car has when talking about 1:10 scale speed is much higher thru corners.

Is there a FW-05 thread or do you chat in here about that car?

Cheers
