Neutral? That would be somewhere like the current one where they've built it brand new just for the WC.

Hopefully the next IFMAR 1/10th scale worlds for nitro TC in 2006 will be held somewhere close... Down under perhaps?
Eerrrmm ... when are you going to pull it out of you .... and get IFMAR to bring over to home ground? I'm sure you can get that done with the help of the RING.

Hopefully by then, Mark and Uncle Sow won't be too old.
I'm too old already but I can still fly down under and watch.

Mark is better "experienced" with lawnmowers, me ... I'll go with them 1/6th ...

Those are for this year lah. They were thinking them motorised wheelchairs for 2006. How thoughtful of them, would be nice ... to go and kick a few young and firm butts while driving from our wheelchairs.

Thanks D

This is interesting but how is this possible that a higher rear RC will give better rear traction

I've been saying this to NiMo for a while too and you can see it in his engine's performance. Not sure about Mark's because he has the old fangs. I better check mine this weekend, the guy at the Border promised that its got the new fangs.
older fangs, too long of a gear and not optimally tuned due to weather conditions

Then it is your shaky hands - if you go into the chicane at a deeper angle, it means you'd have to cut back more (i.e. turn more) going through the left-hand part - this would be slower.
You need to get your video camera on this one, Sow - disguise yourself as a tree and plant yourself at the mid point of the chicane (on the grass of course) then you'll be able to watch/video how the big boys do it without anyone knowing

On the subject of the metal fence - I hit the thing myself after getting the chicane wrong Useless glass car went crashing into it and didn't even sustain any damage
Even Sow couldn't brake my rear shock tower!!!!!

I believe if you dig deep enough on this threat, Lord D find the same thing

The highest rear tracktion was achieved by the following combination (sorry, I do not remember those UBO, LT thing) but here it is: lower arms on highest slots, upper arms on 9 o'clock (you would need to cut/shorten upper arms by 2mm to use 4deg camber). When you raised the whole rear arms assy UP, the rear weight is now more on tires rather than center of the car (since the lower arms is now much higher than the chassis). How does it perform? car will be very very nervous on sweeper as the front does not have enough traction to make the rear to follow (xtra stick to the ground) BUT I think the new servo saver will favor..

BTW, those r just my imagination explanation, I'm sure last time Lord D ask the same question to "official guys"
