So I guess I am glad its Horn, because I would hate to see some one say they want to SHAG

Not much gap between 2nd and 3rd! I think the Kyosho is the FW05R.

I second that Ito was driving a FW05....... his exhaust exited the right side of the car...... the racing between he and Ema was very close.

Looks like the FW-05 is doing good!

Also this goes to show that the car makes only as much difference as you have ability! A very different mix of brands in the finals.

Can i get your input on an idea guys? i came up with it while cleaning my fish tank (i have 2 of the most expensive hobbies out there, NITRO RC and TROPICAL FISH, so i'm litterally eating 2 mins noodles and selling organs to keep up with the dough). With aquariums, you have a device called a 'checkvalve' which goes into the air pump line and prevents water (if ur air pump stops working) from travelling up the air line and into ur air pump. it's small, round all has a piece of rubber, shaped like a roof with a slit in it. while air can pass through, once you blow in the opposite direction(ie into the air pump direction as opposed to air comming out from the air pump), the rubber is forced together and prevents air comming in... gee what a dodge explanination...

well the idea is that if i can use that on the exhaust pressure line from the tune pipe to the tank, i can theoryatically keep the fuel tank pressurized (not letting air out) when i jump off the throttle. would this increase performance in any way?

just a thought ...

You must be from Adelaide.
It was a little attempted humour - a comment on your engine description as being "WET YOUR PANTS FAST".
It really wasn't worth backing up for, was it.

Just go easy, eh. HAG and I are having trouble keeping up.

A non-return valve.
A one way valve.
Maybe an aqua-diode.

Actually, disaster999 seems to be able to combine aquariums and RC racing quite well, as does eddiethefish.

Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

Firstly, there's bugger all pressure there in the first place, but how about this.
When you "jump off the throttle" the revs are falling and the engine is needing less fuel delivery, yeah? During this "rev down" phase you are also bleeding some pressure off the tank, but maybe maintaining more pressure than would have otherwise been there.
When you then snap open the trottle, the extra residual pressure in the tank supplies full fuel pressure earlier.
Maybe you could re-profile the top and bottom end needles to take advantage of this, but somehow I suspect there is no such thing as a free lunch.

. . . . you from Adelaide?

Just took the new EVO for a spin, and all I can say is
I love this car!! I just set it to instructions minus the large amounts of rear toe, and a 19 tooth pulley on the side instead of a 18. this thing goes around corners like it is on rails

hehe ohHHHHhhh i get it now!!!!!! hahah yeh... i do need one of thsoe don't i? lol

The valve is like a one way valve, air can only go in one way. The idea is to keep some pressure in the tank so it doesn't have to pressurize so much when i jump back on throttle. I'll try it out and let you guys know...

btw, I'm from Victoria where we spend millions on what looks like a bunch of straws for an arch and buildings that look like they were made from 3d jigsaws.... >.<

where are u from?
