Ummm, I think you're describing your on power out of the corner experience with the solid axle front and oneway front?

Just to put things straight, the 1/8th scale has very wide rear tires on a solid rear axle which makes handling different and more stable altogether than a 1/10th scale TC. You could brake hard even on a oneway front on a 1/8th scale because of the stability.

Thanks
Off power steering decreases. On sweeping corners, you will feel some drag on the car. Nothing like a smooth, sharp and fast cornering of a oneway front.

On power steering should be close as good as a oneway front.

Thats true. I was just stating that I prefer the 1-way as I always used it. But regardless of size you should be able to brake any car hard with a 1-way and get the same reaction. It's all a matter of how much work you put into making sure the car is completely balanced from side to side as well as front to rear. With the 705 I would nearly say its nearly impossible to do so regardless due to the ill-handling effects of the car but I was more than capable of braking my Yok dead straight with a 1-way regardless of how hard the brakes were applied (but I did spend a lot of time prepping it unlike the 705).
But in saying that I never much got to show that as I never use any brakes unless it is really necessary (those times when a car appeared in the line of fire from nowhere. Just hate when that happens ).

I somewhat disagree... While you could control how the car tweaks perfectly on the board with equal diameter tires, equal shocks, equal droop and etc, you can hardly control these parameters in the corse of racing on the track. Unequal rear tire wear (left to right) and the uneven track surface conditions makes for uneven rear tire contact from left to right.

The much wider 1.8th scale rear wheels evens out all these parameters that makes uneven rear tire contact patch. Sort of like having a wide setup sweat spot on the 710...

In Holland, Modelsport Hoofddorp is the official distributor (my LHS) See also at JP internet site:JP Distributors

Actually its open to interpretation, as the significance of the 0s and 1s is mearly an interaction between the visual cortex and the brain synapses which are stimulated by photons hitting the light sensative nerve cells of the eye. Crashed_1 rather artisic interpretation (enhanced by his commendable choice of Operating System - the popular choice of all artistically gifted people) of the pattern of 1s and 0s is, of course, also valid. It is just that those less giften than he (i.e. those using "that other" OS) won't actually understand nor grasp the significance of his interpretation.

Ask Rene when you see him - I asked for one and got told off from Julius for swearing

Why'd you choose a schumacher over an Xray? Just out of interest.

Ooops ... apologies guys. I was trying out the vB codes. Was reading the guidelines on RCTech and tried to see how one can link images to another page elsewhere.

Clicked the Submit button by mistake iinstead of Preview button.
