Thanks No further news on the location of "D" - from the look of his Avatar, looks like he dissapered up his own.......

We'll have to rely on our Spy to give further hints of his appearence and whereabouts!

Sow&Steady has provided some web space for the FAQ, so now I'm not limited to only 200k Bytes, it is now possible to add some pictures to the doc - but unless you have a good printer it may not print out so good.
When I get time, I'll look into doing a V2 document with pictures. Next big release will be the cleaning up of gramatical and spelling mistakes. Just waiting for a rainy day

I think this weekend, D will be very busy competing in our local race(well, actually their local race )[we same country, different state...bordered by big sea only ]
I assume he gonna try some big setup on the 710 and hopefully he'll be bringing us good news...like A main champion trophy this time ...
ok, ok, D...enoughlah to get B main champion this time...go go go make us proud.

What the .... RAIN TIRES??? this is a little bit new to me... I will have servos and electrics in the car that is worth around ~$200-~$250 even with the greatest waterproofing and fuel proofing, and with an engine that may not get up to temp on the track, there is no way you will get me on the track. Why would you? how do the cars run? dont they slide around because of the slick foam?

A guy at my club has one - with the standard motor (180, I think) it was pretty tame - then he put in a 300 motor and it was impossible to drive - like being on ice But he just needed to use tyre compound to get the grip back - then it was nearly as fast as my Surikarn!! with the standard set up. With a good setup you'll get as quick as a 1/10th TC.

Not with Kisslings strapped on. They are foam tires with belts of rubber pulled on real tight like a cap. Grip is real good. Elligi Aqua's are also real good in damp conditions and Pits D20 slicks actually work better on a slick greasy track than they do in the dry.

No reason not ot run in the wet. We do it most weekends . Like I mentioned a few posts back, a couple of balloons, a lot of red candle wax and silcone sealer will keep you totally waterproof. You can even get special waterproof jackets for your Tx allow we find a simple plastic bag and clothes peg does the same job

Although it restricts the power a bit an INS box on the carb airfilter will help protect the engine. But then who needs all that power on a wet track anyway.

Default Universal joint update!

I found an article that may clarify some things I failed to explain in the right manner in previous posts. (What can I say, I'm not teacher material )

Nice article!

I think you asked for the term used to describe the SIN waveform? Anyway, its called Sinusoidal Pattern/Waveform.

Ignore if someone has already answered your question.

Cheers, Mark.
