Gee, I thought this term would have been universal . . . .

From the official R/C Dictionary. (Page 32)

chuckable adj, to chuck, to throw, to turf, to lob.
Used to describe a method of driving into a corner much faster than should be allowable knowing that the car is sufficiently forgiving so as to not get out of shape to any significant degree.

Hey . . sparksy,
Are you back in Oz?

Yep, we'll be going to the Vic's and would be happy to introduce you to the Lilydale guys.
Got a better idea when you might be in sunny Melbourne town?

The membership form is Here

I don't expect you would need any form of nomination from a current member or anything - I mean, how would OZDC or V-One S Racer ever have got in.

Geeez . . . 30/30. - I don't doubt it's . . . . errr . . . responsive.

I don't really know that I like the harder oils just yet.
It certainly has smoothed out the car's handling, though this could be interpreted as dulling the edge. My driver says it's made the car more stable and as a result, he feels he can push it harder.

It could be that since it's easier to drive, he pushes it harder, and if the car is less responsive, he's only making similar times.
Buggered if I know really. I haven't any stopwatch data to prove anything.

Vones - I have not seen the NSR run yet but the hobby shop has sold one and they took it apart for the owner to see. All is the same but for the piston, it has only one ring and the metal is different. Wonder what that is all about.

Taylor & AMG - lighther oils are great for bumpy and tight tracks and heavier ones for the smooth high speed tracks. Try this URL ... its great

NSR piston have another ring near the buttom of the piston. I don't know if that is classified as 2nd ring.

Here is a picture of the nsr. From it you can see the other ring (not clearly shown) I'm talking about.
