The boy's car was knocked out by a back marker that was being lapped; in a titles event final, when he was leading by nearly a lap today. The car was T-boned, and the two bolts that hold the front lay-shaft were sheared off.

We've never tried to race the car using an additional bolt that fits through the top deck yet; but we may consider using a bolt there now. Could anyone help with some info of how we could expect it to change the car's handling?

Tried the Protoform SRS-N body in the event, and it's awesome. It makes a big difference; particularly in making the steering very aggressive turning into corners. The track has two very long sweeping right hand corners; so we also tried putting a 25 gr weight on the right side of the car a la Francesco Tironi, but it didn't work well and we raced with it in it's usual place on the left side.



Kindest regards,
Lars.

Sorry to hear you had that problem from a back marker Lars. I hope your boy has better luck next time.
Good to hear you found a body you like.

Hi Lars,

Hope your doing good and your sons racing is too..

Sorry to hear the problem with the back marker... But glad to hear the SRS-N body works great :-)... Im just painting 2 of them....

Have you tried the Striker Body from Bitty Design? I ran it almost every race last year, either that or the Kruzer V2...

Br,

Niko

Not sure about that battery hopefully someone can answer that question.

When building the diffs, it says to apply oil to the diff cups shaft during assembly. I never know what to use here? common bearing oil? grease?

in my tool kit i have

1. Hudy diff grease (blue cap)
2. Red thrust/joint grease
3. Green Slime

Which is best? Or do I need something else?
thanks

Getting my list together now as we speak.......

First new Nitro car in over 15 years. I can't believe I was with Team Magic for that long. This will only be the 3rd make of Nitro car in almost 20 years!!
Haha..... as you can see. Time was ripe for a change Bundy.

How are things with you?
