Mr. Chan, playing with 1/10th TC already?

What front and rear trackwidth are you running? Wider front trackwidth to 200 mm. Like some already mentioned, raise the front roll center by putting all the shims (2 mm + 2 mm) just under the CF radio tray, stiffen the front sway bar.

I also believe in that.. but funny thing.. those made in Europe/Holland cracked plastic arms mentioned before because of weahter changes... at such that price, how the hell didn`t you put them inside humidity chamber and do strength test after the whole 2 years of research?? I just don`t buy that kind of excuses.

D, are u talking about this? I already bought one but has not use it yet.

I have not seen the Ofna X12 pipe. So I cannot comment.

A high speed track usually requires a pipe / engine combo that can give you high revs. A short pipe will do that. A long pipe is good for torque which is good for short twisty tracks.

If you have an engine / pipe combo that is high end biased, gear the car such that it will take advantage of it. This means smaller pinions and bigger spurs. Vice versa if you have an engine / pipe combo that is low end biased. By gearing correctly, you can actually make a torquey engine / pipe combo have the same top speed as a high rev engine. You just need to use smaller spurs and bigger pinions to achieve it.

Yup. That's the one. Let us know how it goes. What I know is that the 3 Racing CVDs for Mugen are very brittle. I hope the 3 Racing ones for the 710 will hold up.

I guess there are exceptions.

Well, seriously, the 3Racing parts are not that good. However, different people have different opinions.

I 'm currently running 200mm with 90 degree front sway bar.

I don't think I should raise up front roll center coz It was not enough steering and I believe I should raise up rear roll center first . I feel I got a lot of rear traction and make my car got traction roll !

I will try out a few things this week end ... I hope my car will not be traction roll until broke thing again !!

Last week, I broke front absorber and rear wishbone because of 2 time of traction roll. My car flew like SpiderMAN to the wall

I am not sure... looks VERY long, they say the track is the longest in South Africa, so I would imagine I would need to gear it, and put on a high speed pipe just so I can keep up could be fun though

thanks Dee. I am planning on getting the pins but I hope rc-mushroom hurry and get the parts soon.

Well, I really need to see the car in action to know what you're describing.

But if you look the other way around, decreasing rear traction by higher rear roll center increases the front traction and you'll have problems again !

Perhaps you can list your current setup and post it here. From there, we can brainstorm and give you our inputs and the changes that need to do. Always remember, change one thing at a time.

Ouch. Good luck on your outing and let us know how it goes.

I will be up at 5 on the weekends when my kit arrives to build it, and to get to the track to run it... It will be winter here in a few weeks... VERY COLD... not like england though... only -1 C maybe -2C not colder...
