hallo Malaysian!!
are u using the kit tyres?radial rubber?
dump them!!!
get some nice foams like 37-40,blue/purple springs,50wt oil.
and -2deg camber.
standard caster.
i dont know if the OS is too fast,where is your original engine?
where u play?i play at Subang Speedway.

the OS is definetly not too fast for that car. get better springs. get some good RUBBER TIRES IE yokomo's. get the carbon graphite top plate to stiffen the car up a bit. and that should help a little. Foams will work better for a treated track.

spitfire:
to stiffen the chassis,are there composite graphite arms,c-hubs or uprights?
i think this is more important,but i dont seem to be able to find these for the Nitro 3

A462 Carbon Graphite Upright Set

the top plate helps more than you think, the removable top plate the have now flex's way to much. u will notice a difference if you change that out. graphite shock towers will help also

Hey Spitfire, I see that you are using the regular brake pad and rotor on your N RS4 3. Does it seem to fade at all? Do you get good braking at all? Mine brake ok, but not great.

What are your thoughts?

for a five minute race its OK, but for anything longer i'd suggest the fiber brake or metal one. im planning on getting one sooner or later
