I'm not sure about that ....likely , it would be because there is points for that ...final race will be in Spain ..I think.

But if there is a race in Singapore, I will join for sure ..

Good thing is that seems there is no sig difference in consumption with stock .15s.....
Hi, can you give more info on specific pipe and manifold you are using? how about diameter of air restrictor (carbs insert)? thanks

In my opinion, that KHM crankshaft for NSR based is much better interm of built quality.
Agree with you on that one ... just one blink and you've lost all that advantage. What a pity ...

Very high speed real chicane and a sharp (well, its only about 1.8m) u-turn from the bottom lane to the second one right before the first chicane. All engines will never rev to maximum on straight (50m is end to end). S710 was the only car that ever breaks 21 laps on 5 mins qualifying and TQ on all 4 heats. The new ackerman servo saver really did its job.
Bro need video, need video, need video of the race!

Am fed up with the video of the virtual races at Sao Paolo and Oslo!

Default Ceramic Thrust bearing

Hey guys... LONG TIME NO CHAT!!!

I have been mad busy at work and studying like a mad man... needed to get qualified...

Can you tell me if any of you have got the Serpent Ceramic thrust bearing? If so, how is it... better than the original?

The Yellow clutch shoe: Which is better, the Clutch shoe XP or the Yellow Clutch shoe?

I hope you are all well and racing like banshees... I will be in the new year.

Hey BaxterC, how are you getting along? If you do not have time, just download VRC and get to playing on those short breaks. At least that would get you up to speed with those skills and reflexes.

To answer your questions, I've gotten the ceramic thrust bearing but have not needed to install it yet. My original ones are still holding up. I would reckon that the ceramic ones would last longer.

As for the clutch shoe, get the yellow Centax shoe.

Wow, yeah - long time, no hear!!!

Nitro is confined to the shelf at the moment and the electric is getting much use either due to GF and work Still it will be different in the new year.....I'll get rid of GF and, well, work should be better Until then, as D says, get VRC, get yourself the USB thingy and go racing
