There is no W.C kit, its the European Championship kit which has been out for quite some time now.

the floating radio plate is for the 1:8 scale. The lab c 01 does not need a floating radio plate. if you need more flex you can remove the screw that holds the top deck to the front belt tensioner, or if you need flex in the rear you can remove thwe screw that screw the 2 speed support posts to the rear bulkhead.

Default duralium engine mount

hi guys i have a capricorn duralium engine mount to install in my car, what benefit other than placing weight in the chassis is there? does adding weight to this part of the car affect steering?

at the moment to bring the car up to weight i have 30gs screwed to the chassis on the exhaust side

this is basically an improved nt1 so MArtin Hudy says that this will get you more steering on the xray site. Try to balance the car left to right and get the weight in the middle of the car.

It moves the engine 0.5mm to the left for better balancing.
You add weight to the CoG of the car which helps improving the amount of steering the car has but also making it react faster, makes it more agile.
The material used for the mount isn't duraluminum but a material which has a lot higher density. This improves the engine cooling quite a bit, you will notice the chassis getting a bit hotter since the heat transfer from crankcase till chassis is improved.
You probably won't need the 30 grams on the exhaust side anymore.

The NT1 is really only a cloned MTX4 with improvements; and I've heard some calling them "MTX4 1/2", but just because some of the parts fit both the LAB CO1 and NT1, and they share design features but not quite "basically an improved NT1". But handling tips from Hudy should work on any 1/10th scale on-road gas car.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

Default Set-up

Hey guys,

I went to the Chaplin track last weekend. They had there Regional Race and I attended to help out racers and continue to test for the Nationals later this year. You will not find my results, as I am not a part of their Region, but my car was pretty good and this is the set-up I used. I took the fastest lap and fastest in the qualifiers. This is a high bite and bumpy track.

Use standard gearing as in the file attachment, or you can gear 1st lower for a big track with some hairpins or sharp corners.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

For a point of interest; which track are you racing at? I would like to have a look at it with Google Earth.
