Thanks. The car drives great. Quite amazing! I'll prob leave my engine mount as is since it's not a problem. Itching to try its second run this weekend and playing with newer settings. Think if I use my JP S5, it may handle even better.

Shorter wheel base is a good idea! Let me start to try playing with the DRS, Roll centres front/rear...
The JP will definitely make a lot of difference.

What you plan to do is good. Too often people don't spend enough time (me included, D excluded) working on the intricacies of the car itself and practise!

I take it back about your eyesight That you can see the wing is 1mm too high is indeed impressive!

I think he's stopped doing RC anyway.

New way of refuelling with a fuel bottle or with a gun is to do it in mid air ! Pick car up with the cable tie connected to the fuel cap and pump the fuel in.
Sounds like something Crashed_1 would do!

Are you still running that old one which crashed painted for you - the one in 3hobby?

The "confused" name was intended to steer certain individuals off from buying it...

... and then I used the FORCE. So disappear it has as the page gets refreshed!

I put it to rest already. I still keep it but let's just say it's not road worthy.

Hint, hint ! Crashed_1, are you listening? I'm in need of a nicely painted shell.

Not a bad idea. One is still in pieces from way back when I was in KL and the other badly needs rebuilding.

Anybody want to buy cheap paperweights?

Dang! He copied that from me!

[i]Onkel Sow, where on earth did you get orange clutch shoes? From Mordor? [/B]
Now THAT would be telling ...

[i]Did you get the bronze coloured ones or the black ones? [/B]
Bronze.

[i]What are their teeth numbers on the belts? Do they fit? [/B]
Another guy has the G4. Comparing them looks like they'll work. Haven't tried yet but boviously the middle belt does not fit.

Quote:
[i]Where are you getting yours? Someone here at the local track is testing a self made one. One is testing a oneway with rear solid and the other is testing solid front and rear. I'll post pics when I have the time. This friend of mine gave me to have a look at a "pre-production" one that was heavy. He's using a revised one that he made himself which is lighter. He said that acceleration in the straights line is very good. Better than the rear ball diff. But it only works on very few tracks. The setup tends to like stiffer rear and front sway bars. [/B]
Got mine from Elite Hobbies here in the UK. They've machine a few for the factory drivers, I had to beg for mine. I told them don't send any to Germany.

Yes, the set-up sounds about right. Actually Mark Green prefers NOT to use them unless the track is smooth. The contant bounce on tracks which are not smooth puts too much strain on the drive train.

I've posted a pic of it in my gallery at 3hobby.com.

I just cut mine close with some round scissors and then use a dremel to finish them off.

It's actually a new servo saver, thanks to Onkel Sow.

I believe this is the one that gives a different Ackerman steering that was talked about.
