You should've seen the water splash whenever I slid on to the grass/mud, not even D20 wets work properly this time of year, just hope it warms a little for the race this Sunday.

Now you know why Mark Green was able to do so well in the wet at the Worlds.

take your time with the shimming of the diffs, or if you can get them, get the upgraded steel diffs, they dont have to be shimmed as tight.

I have been running on a few different size tracks and have found the Kawahara diffs to work at all of them with my JP motor, so you may want to get the 37T diffs.

I have gone for the 39 t rings with front one way and 45,46t
and 50,51t spurs with 20,21.22t and 25,26,27t pinions,
So I have a few options there.

Default Weight transfer

Hey NiMo,
I like the idea of moving the battery forward as I always had trouble with on power understeer.
More forward weight will certainly help.
Any other setup ideas?

Not sure if my set ups would help you as most of the time I have to run on Rubber or wets due to our cold wet climate
(that's why we love those sexy brown Californian girls)
Since I started running the Protoform MG ZS I have been able to soften the car up, I now use the soft Kyosho Spider Mk2 springs with 35wt shock oil. the car has plenty of body roll but it feels so predictable that I can go faster with it.
I moved the battery pack forward as I found the car had more power on understeer turning left than it does turning right which would lose me precious 10ths on the infield at my local track, so I'm hoping this will give me some steering back.
I got the idea from the forum talk about the RRR, which has the battery a little more forward than most other cars, and a good inch forward over earlier V-one models (which may be why it didn't grip roll like other cars).

Why not?

My way of thinking is:
if I can get more heat away from the motor then I can run it leaner for longer therefore using less fuel as well as a little more power.
The one piece mount is not only larger, it spreads the heat over a larger area.
Buit there again I could be talking absolute crap

It also stiffen the chassis a little. Probably has a bigger effect on the RRR than the FW05R.

Hi!

I need some advise to improve the rigity of my car. While the only parts i broke are the rear lower arms, i often bend the rear hinge-pins (original part-no. vz-18). There are some extra-hard hinge-pins aroung, as well as the titanium-ones made by kyosho. Which ones are the most rigid ones?

Also i need a hint where to buy the steel ring gears at a reasonable price.

Thank you!

Robert
