I also tapped the battery door holes with a 4mm tap,used a counter sink bit to enlarge the holes,and use 4x8 flathead screws to hold the door on...

BTW,My car has a mid corner push also........but alot of on power steering out of the corner.....I put the soft springs in front,hards in the back,and that helped..

I also popped in the 4 gear diff with 30,000......uhhh,I'd say the car was a TAD loopier...

got to try it again in a higher traction situation....

Proteus would your brother ship to other countries? I dont need anything right now, but it might be handy if my HK hookups fail me.
Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'll call my bro a call later this week.

I would stay away from the sirio evo 2; b/c mine wore out a connecting rod after 1/2 gallon of 16% oil fuel! -and No replacements are coming in at this point, and I haven't found a place overseas that has them either.

I personally haven't checked out RAMS yet though, when are the races?

Oh yeah, I buy my tires from overseas in HK. But everyone now is having problems with them. Good thing I got them before. RC Tech in Daly City has the HPI Foams, Nitro Shoes, and Yokomo Foams. Their tires are reasonably priced but can be over priced at times. HPI Foams cost 18 a pair
The RAMS club is quite impressive. Really well organised! The web site is kind of simple though. Be patient, it's slow too.

Take a look http://www.rams-rc.com

The next race is June 13. I'll be there if I have no bad surprise.

By the way, if you buy your tire online, can you post a link here?

I am really use to rubber tire, but the foam are still very mysterious to me.

Post Fuel to carb

Another newbies one,

how to you guys bring fuel to the carb without a pullstart. I use to block the exhaust with my finger and pull the pullstart until fuel get to the carb.

But now, no more pullstart...and the motor got so much compression that I am not able to turn the flywheel with my fingers.

How do you guys proceed?

Hint: I have an OFNA pink box.

you can do the same thing *(put your finger over the exhuast tip), but instead of pulling your pull start to turn the engine over, you just press down on the starter box while you finger is covering it

RAMS looks pretty sweet. I might have to go watch this weekend or something.

Heres the link for the tires:

This weekend is the 1/5th scale though. There is less people and probably not really representative of what you'll see on the 1/8 and 1/10 scales day.

But seeing those big cars is pretty impressive too

I tried the front diff instead of the one-way yesterday. Man I could not get used to the diff, it is far too hard to drive it! It is much more stable but you have to go around the circuit much slower. You should all practice with the one-way

Is it worth putting the dif in for a small track with lots of grip or set up a hole car for small tracks

Dunno. With the diff I got a push that I could not eliminate. If you really really cant drive the car without a oneway the diff may be better. I run a diff on rubber tires on a low grip track.

Well, after taking a month off racing, when I returned, I found my driving off, and the R40 wasn't on par with everyone else. I brushed the leader, "my team mate" and the R40 front knuckle popped off the pillow balls. I made it into the pits, and my pit man snapped it back on. I went out for a few more laps, to have it pop off going over a corner dot.

I was so upset with the R40, I went and got a MTX-3... After driving it hard, I found that both cars feel pretty much the same. I've decided not to give up with the R40, but I now have a reliable car that I can go too...

Anyone else have plastic problems with the R40?
