Braking with a one-way isn't easy and with the fonrt one-way locked you're going to have an easier time and be more consistent.
You'll find that you will spin the car a lot under braking with the one-way, which may get frustrating for you, in which case lock the front shaft.

Cheers, Mark.

Well the RDLogics Swing Shafts was a short-lived experiment that never made it to the track. I installed them and, of course they were heavier, but I was willing to live with that. What i could not live with is the slop. it wasn't much (~.5mm), but that was I all i needed to see to know that these are not going to make it for me. They are in my parts box as emergency spares, but, i put the bones and axels back in.

I will take this opportunity to say "Bravo" to Serpent. The standard axles roll perfectly free and with ZERO play, just like they did before i messed with the swing shafts... You don't know what you have 'till it's gone - true, true.

Thanks, Crashed

Tickets can be collected at the Malaysian Airlines desk in KL sometime before Feb 2005 - just handover a valid credit card (pref. from D ) and you'll be on your way

pd, the swing shafts are from RDL? I thought they were made by 3Racing?

Mark has the answer to that one.

Oh, don't forget to mention my name at the Golden Lounge at KLIA ... they'll let you in to wait before your flight.

I really recommend those.
They give a good consistant braking, so that change of brake setup during the race won't happen again.
Thomas, I have always wanted to get the 9607 race brake pads. One of the top things that I wanted to get but it was never available at my LHS. besides in between that and being busy with other stuff, I sorta loss sight of getting it. (some claimed I "misplaced" the RING )

But a buddy of mine recently got it on his car but he runs with front diffs. I hear that it's really good when used with a oneway front.

Even Michael Salven does not get treated to have a mechanic do his car, paint his shells while he drinks cocktails.

Preferably like what Mark mentioned, it'll be easier to get familiar not just with the car but with RC.
