stock. just open it up for picture taking before I ran it. It's a FAST engine. It "seem" to be faster than sirio .12 outlaw on a NTC3 while NSR is on v1rrevo (still breaking in).

Mauler - welcome to the exciting world of a one way. What the one way does is to give you 4 wheel drive when accelerating but when you power off the rear wheels have drag whilst the front are running free. On braking you only have rear wheel braking.

What I noticed is that if you set your brakes to slow the car down gently (a lighter brake setting) then you can brake hard and keep the car straight on high speed but not on low speed. Other alternative is to tap the brakes like an ABS but that is easier said than done. So work on the brake adjustments ... take it lighter till what works for you.

If you race on a tight track, go back to the diff ... its more relaxing.

Thanks for that. You'll notice that both AMG's and my experience with different oil weights are in accordance with what they say.

My ponderings were that it may (or may not?) be faster to use a heavy oil set up because the car is more docile and can be pushed harder. Equally, it might be argued that a light oil set up may be more responsive requiring more concentration, but may be faster overall.

Six of one and half dozen of the other, I'm guessing.

Is the new piston material just for the 5 port engine or is it going to be used in the 3 port NS12 engine too?

I think the new mugen/nova 3 port engine will also have the new piston material according to the translation off the Japan site.


Manti,you got the new NS?

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.
I could not have described it better!!

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.
Likely it is due to the track. Our track is very tight with 10 180 degree hairpins which are only around 5 metres wide and it is also pretty bumpy. I think this is why it works well. You have to have a steady hand to drive it tho.
