Default over drive belts

the over drive belts are the ones that are labeled "Special" (Kyosho Special Belts 210, 192, or 375 teeth) on the tag, correct.

Thanks for the info,
SC

Had our first race meeting of the '04 season today.
The boy won it with a lead of three or four laps, but the competition was mostly light.

Also had to rebuild that troublesome front shock . . . AGAIN.
I found the diaphram to have a large crack - just in the middle, not right through to the side.
I've been unhappy with these new hard diaphrams for a while now, and they've made shock rebuilding difficult, I reckon.
JordanC kindly provided a new set of the older V-One R soft diaphrams and the shocks have never felt better.

Adding weight to the front gives less steering? The extra pressure on the front tires and the resulting increase of friction where the rubber meets the road (traction) causes less steering?

So if thats correct, if I add more weight to the rear of my car, the increased traction to the rear would make it turn better?

I dont think so.....
Well that depends on what body you are using. If you are running a sedan body then yes. However that statement would be untrue if you are using a much higher down force body such as a Lola VDS.

How does a Lola VDS alter the dynamic weight transfer physics involved?

I just want to know how a VDS body reverses the basic principal.

Tell me what you think of the new EVO shock diaphrams?

Well, I dunno then. I thought I might have been cranking them down too hard.
When I took out the HC diaphrams, there was a crack in one and the other three had "dimples" and were somewhat wonky around the perimeter.

if you want to avoid those dimples, try to shorten the overall shock length.

Agree. This is a problem with the EVO now due to the requirements to unscrew the rear shocks a heap. At full compression the nut on top of the shaft will hit the bladder and deform it. Even the front shock does hit.

The new high compression bladders I liked. Adds a lot of extra rebound, but they did dimple up bigtime.
