i am sorry,that was a typo..i am getting the 9451...thanks...

Try using a neck strap with it......It hangs at the perfect angle...real comfy for long mains...

And when you get beaten by Sow in a race, you can use the strap to hang yourself

Go for it Kevin, then you can write a review for 3hobby, so we can decide if we need to re-mortgage our houses, too! And it looks so good, that wifey will have no problem in you putting it on that spot in the lounge where she displays all her "isn't that pretty" stuff!!

Try playing with the shock angles. More horizontal in the front than rear. Try also softer front tire than rear etc. Harder rear sway bar than the front. All this to get more off power steering.

Is the on power steering not affected, too? Just thinking about it, both wheels are forced to go the same speed, therefore the one with the least grip (i.e. the inside wheel) will scrub - would this not induce on-power understeer?

You are actually right. It's pretty complex since on power, the inner wheel scrubs and slips. Then both outer and inner wheel rotates at the same speed during cornering... Pretty much what a oneway would do except just a little different in the beginning but once on power, the inner wheel slips, both inner and outer wheels lock and will turn at the same rate like the front solid. I thought that was what Julius mentioned. So going by logic, the solid front should have same characteristics as the oneway on power... That's what I still believe and base on the test runs I had with the solid, that's what I experienced too. You can get too much of on power steering so much so the car spins out coming out of the corner on power.

But then again, that's just purely arguing by logic. The setup booklet mentions differently though. Same as what you have concluded... On and off power understeer with solid front.

I thought the hitec one looked a little wider.......the material looked nicer,and it was half the price....(and I use Hietc servo's,so the Karma is still good )

Well, the site is still up and backups are done. Now I'm still looking for the elusive "hole". Good fun really but I'd need to focus on my cars tonight onwards for our AMCC onslaught of Brookland Club.

Well, at least I'm still running with the compressionless 2-year-old Rody X12.

Tell you what though, that KHM crank looks good. Maybe the JP will have to wait.

D, we all know MarkP used the RING and got all the shops in the world to tell me they're out of stock until AFTER October.
