I just found this out today from the Xray forum - but I'll wait and see. I didn't notice this with my EVO III during the winter.
I find those people who run their cars with huge wings funny ... the cars look like they have Mickey Mouse ears!

The key to tweak is first the geometry part of the chassis.

Weights, although would work, could upset the rolling mass balance of the car ... my 2 cents' worth.

Yes, it was very good! I hope your car is OK though, we came together twice and both times I was the guy behind ...

Apart from the short shower, it was a brilliant day out. All of us from AMCC enjoyed it and NiMo will now get their race schedule and we plan to do a few more trips.

I've not ordered it yet because it seems that the one I want is out of stock worldwide (thanks to MarkP who bought all of them!). I'm going over to 3-ports to try and get ready for the WinterNats, want to join us?

Yuo're right, that's what I saw too, on Starting Grip I think (gosh that's a pain of a forum to work with!). The track definitely looks flat and smooth. The indoor track where I race from time to time is very falt and smooth, I've tried 4mm ride height there and even with yellow springs and 30wt, no issues with bottoming out.

Saw some pics at SGRID of Bryan's car. Thought I posted it here.







One of the best "naked" pics of the 710.

Talking about ride height, I thought I heard Bryan mentioned that he ran 3.5 to 4 mm ride height. How is that possible? Even on 6 or 7 mm ride height on a pretty flat track, the chassis still bottoms out ! Or is chassis bottoming out not a problem? Hope Bryan is around to answer this if he came back with a 3 mm chassis (instead fo 4 mm) after the 1 hour main.

Anyway, I noticed that Bryan did something like what Pyramid / Goldfinger did on theirs with regards to adding balancing weight on the chassis.
that must be the optional rear swaybar?? is it adjustable by that screw in the middle? or some otherway? what is it's part number?


thanks.

Tried this, no improvement
