Yes, that's kinda what I was expecting to hear. Just tell us something like ... "oops, we've gotten the diameter of the 16 too small, so we'll re-engineer the 16 with slightly larger one" ... or whatever.

We cant make the 16T bigger. It would make things worse. I've been running the 16T in combination with 59 at the Euro's and been testing with the same gears for a while here at Heemstede. Seems not to be a problem.

If you run 16T I suggest using 59 with it. Maybe 60 but surely NOT 61!

Any reason why? So what you're saying is it is not a 16T pinion problem but rather the 61T spur?

The Asian tracks will require the SWB mod.
Actually the track of the Euro's in Austria was quite small with lots of hairpins. The new saver was better there too.

It gives a little more steering in the corner and a little less going in. So you have less chance of the rear en stepping out entering corners. Then you can run slightly more front grip and still have good balance and added steering.

Julius, did any of you guys try to shorten the wheelbase while in Austria?

If you make the diameter bigger you couldnt mesh both 1st and 2nd gear at the same time.

It's the combination of the two that seems to give problems. The 61 has it's teeth clesest together and that gives problems with the meshing with the wide open teeth of the 16.

Actually we'd rather make the 16t smaller in diameter as it would make the teeth a better shape. Unfortunately then you cnat make it fit over the bearing anymore....

Not that I know of.

How would the short wheel base mod be different from the new servo saver? The short wheel base would make the stock servo saver seem to appear "longer" and more angled because the front wheel is moved to the back. Do you think they both have somewhat the same effect?

Also, any truth on a new Team Serpent member in Holand?

Default Shock Holes

Gday

When you guys are talking about running 1.2 dia Piston holes are you modifying the standard piston holes or are there 1.2 dia pistons available?

We drill out the holes to 1.2mm

The short wheelbase has no effect on the servo saver. Although the angle changes a little bit the ackerman is not affected. The new saver has the balls closer together and further away from the pivot point which changes ackerman.

The shorter wheelbase makes the car more compact and therefore rotate slightly easier. The new saver improves front grip in the middle of the corner thus creating higher cornering speeds.

I don't think they are available. That's what MS mentioned in the Talk Backs of one of his race reports. Something to do with the mold.

So the only option is to use a 1.2 mm drill bit and open up the existing 1 mm holes. I know it's difficult on the adjustable ones. That is why I use the fixed number of holes type of piston. Easier to drill but the down side is it is not adjustable.

Default New Mega's

Hi Julius,

I saw Micheal Salven tested the new Mega's and looking not that fast.
Koen Geurds did use his own modified Nova Rossi, and had some more power.
Why is it? Is it because he was testing relaiability or did he not had the proper gearing?

Bye, Thomas

Thanks julius..Is there any plans in the near future to release these pistons already modified?

Thanks for the info Julius. Are you making a stop in Brazil for the worlds?
