Just got this today. Its made out of titanium and whats also cool about it is that the holes for the body post sits about 1-2 cm lower than the factory rear shock towers. The factory rear shock tower lowest hole is still too high for my Stratus 2.1 body. This should do the trick.

Thanks to Dino Racing!

I only use OS plugs in my non-turbo engines. Never had any running problems with them. Cant say the same about when I tried a nova plug.

Biboy, try the-Border, I just got my orders today, they've been good. The same goes with RC-Mushroom but I don't know if they have the ceramic diff ball-bearings though.

B4, I've tried them on the 705 but have not had the need to try it on the 710 yet.

They definitely work wonders for the 705. I remember a race I went to a while back. Its almost like the F1 race at the Indy track because the organisers used an outdoor roller skating ring. Half of the race track was on this part and the infield was the inside of the ring.

As you can imagine, the roller-skating part, although banked, was made of smooth concrete and the sweeper had to be taken at the highest speed possible or you end up "playing" in the D or E mains instead of "racing" in the upper mains. The only way to stop my 705's rear from sliding off was to use the pre-tension springs.

Ran the car today and went really well. I dont think at one time it ran this good. I used 35 shores on all 4. When exiting a corner a get understeer. Is there any way I can correct this without losing more steering?

I would try F35 and R37 tyres and don't touch any setting now. It will let your car a bit drifting when you leave the corner and also let your rear tyres more lasting. It's good for long time final.

You should let me rape your car today then I may join your camps...

Join the camp so you can rape my car anytime... Get your 200mm car soon!

Maybe we can do a sweep for the whole track and pick up tire pieces so you can build me a custom homemade 37 shore tire
BTW thanks for that tire repair You can be my mechanic anytime

I reduced the rear toe 1/2 degree and still not much better. I then went to white springs up front without much luck. I ran my first qualifier with it but then switched back to my Mugen. Any input on gaining steering?
