Cool ! I did not know that New Zealand had their own RC association.

Nice vid shots. Looks like you either know the vid guy or paid him to post those vids. (j/k)

[/b]Sow, we got a race coming up this 28 @ Titi. Can you convince D to bring his DV?... [/B]
I tried that before, he'll make some poor excuse about not having this and not having that.

Can you get someone to tape? Please!

See Crashed?!

D is saying if you DON'T paint his bodyshell then he'll stand by the sidelines. If you lend him a DV cam then he'll tape the race.

Just make sure you show him how to use the cam first though.

Hey, race is coming... I've got an unpainted Mazda 6 bodyshell ready to have your signature paint on it...

One set of NEW ELLEGI foam tires waiting for you... Besides, I think I need the extra weight from the shell.



Then what does D do then during race day? Stand beside the sidelines taping and not race? That is if D has a DV to begin with !
Cool...!!! Pass it on...need some kicks ASAP. 37rear please...

I'll gladly do it if somebody is generous enough to donate a DV cam for my use.

The Novarossi layout at TT is very interesting. I hope someone gets it on tape. Some parts the car looks like a 1/8th scale buggy negotiating the bumps !

Are you running a one-way or a diff. A very tight set front diff may well cure your problem.

I Change from
UTO / LT to UTO / LB
Front Roll Center 0 under
DRS LEVEL
Tighten from Diff and loosen Rear Diff
Increase Toe in from 2 to 3
Anti Roll Bar Front 45
Anti Roll Bar Rear 2.5mm flat
New longer Servo Saver

These changes made the behavior of the car improve in a very low traction fast track.

Now my question is, if I make the Wishbone front 1mm modification will this improve my --ON THROTLLE CORNER ENTRY & EXIT?

Thanks
You said you were running the alfa 2.1
On lower grip tracks you may want to try running a stratus 2.1
I feel the stratus 2.1 especially good in going into medium to fast corners. You may lose a little in the tighter parts. But it is very neutral wich helps in lower grip situations.

Ummm... Looks like somebody will need to spray a Stratus 2.1 shell for me on top of the Mazda 6...

LOL, never letting an opportunity to pass ... but I think we prefer to see you race.

I'm salivating from your teaser about the layout but not so sure about the bumps thing. Perhaps the organizers wanted to simulate what it was like to race in Brazil? Or maybe someone out there is trying to prove a point in that a bumpy layout may just give the RRR's an advantage?
