That car at stock gearing is severely undergeared especially on your track.

The temperature will drop slightly. Better cooling.

Say, have you really not run the FW05R or the NTC3 before? Those kind of heatsink head alignment are for engines mounted like in those cars.

Which tire is this? Front or rear? Just make a cheap DIY tire axle spacer. Cut the thrown away pieces from the lexan of the bodyshell exactly in the shape of the wheel hex adaptor nut and there you go !

Damn. How much faster can this car go?

Hey Mark, perhaps in the pits when you're near Rene's pit table, you could unscrew one of the wheel nuts on his car.

That's why ! Even after a thorough cleaning, I never get my car to look like that ! That's why you stop seeing me posting pics of my car !
