It's defiantly not mandatory, I'm pretty sure none of us will notice the difference on track. I've simply bought them because they fit nicely in the super narrow radio tray I designed. I do think the RSX line of servos is exceptionally good in terms of feel and performance.

It depends on the track conditions. When there is a lot of traction I like to run with a very small amount of rebound or no rebound at all. It settles the car down and makes it easier to drive. The hole in the shock cap makes is very easy to build a shock with almost no rebound.
When the traction is low or average I prefer some rebound (4mm spacer when I build the shocks) and thus use a closed shock cap.

Thanks for the response DS. It's nice to see guys working on their cars like the old days...

As for the body position, I would search both the c01 and c02 threads because I recall reading a discussion on this. If I remember correctly simply align the front wheel, centering it within the wheel well circle imprinted in the lexan, then cut real wheel well to final rear tire location.

Most mount the body centered with the front axle and front wheel arch for their first body. For most bodies (Blitz RS4, P37, SRS-N) I end up mounting them 2-4mm in front of the front axle to have some more front end downforce which can be compensated by moving the rear wing back a bit more.

Last weekend we had the second round of nationals at the Rucphen track which hosted the B-euros last year.
Traction was quite low for this track for the entire weekend but finally we had some nice weather with only some minor rain showers.
My car was exceptionally good the entire weekend with me having the second fastest lap time during practice and the fastest lap time during qualifying.
I ended up qualifying third behind Daan Jacobs and Pedro Rombouts and just in front of Maxim Claes.

Unfortunatly disaster stroke early in the main final when another driver got it wrong and ended up on his roof at the end of the main straight. This happened just in front of me and I didn't have any time to react.
I hit the other car dead on at probably 110 km/h which completely destroyed my car as you can see below:




This really sucks, because all of the DS Motorsport prototype parts were destroyed during the crash.

Capricorn did have some success, scoring a 1,2 with Marcel Haenen and Sidney Blokker in the stock class:



This is the setup I was using, the car hasn't been this good before:

Bad time bro!
I am 100% sure that everything will go excellent in near future.
I received My LAB C02 today and I will need some help.
Unfortunately there is no receiver box in the kit. Do You have any idea for a receiver box?
I am afraid that there will be many problemes without a box!

Im having problems with the steering servo linkage. It is binding on the servo saver arm.The link is in a lower servo horn hole to total 16mm horn length as indicated in the manual. I already shaved down the uniball holder but it still binds. I am thinking of either bending the threaded linkage to make the uniball holder more horizontal, or put a washer between the servo saver arm and the pivot ball. What's the solution?

Hi

Got a Carbon fibre part to mount the Mugen box at the normal mounting holes from Rc-Netshop.dk (nicolai(a)rc-netshop.dk) , works fantastic. Will take some pictures later when I get off from work

Hey DS what's that spring purpose on the mugen front bumper?

If I use 4 hole piston up front and 6 hole piston in rear would I get better steering than using overall 6 hole piston.

Also what the pro and cons of running, front 197mm track width and rear 200mm track width VS 197mm track width and rear 198mm track width.

Thanks
