John you have that many Capricorn cars i thought it would be easier just to swap out cars instead of diffs

We tried more flex by racing without the screws that holes the top deck to the rear "Radio Plate supports", but we liked the car better with it stiff. Our car is simply awesome, and we don't have to change handling much at all for different tracks now. Usually only changes to springs, dampening, tires and sometimes swaybar settings is all that's required now. Those that try our car usually think that it is great, with great traction, but most say that it's twitchy. But that's the way that the boy wants it, he wants it changed if it's too stable, and wants very fast steering response.
Kindest regards,
Lars.

If you're referring to our setup have a look in the file attachment; it works fantastically for us. At the same time; I don't claim to be an expert in setups; and I'm sure that there are other setups that many drivers will like better, and that our setup could be improved to work better even for us.

Hinge pin positions are measured from the lowest possible position in the sheet; and please note the short wheel base, the car is significantly better with that even on fast flowing tracks. it's a simple adjustment that I think everyone should give one try.

Also check the awesome clip of another Capricorn car's traction roll in front of our car. The track is very bumpy, but our car handled the bumps well with fairly hard springs, and the two Capricorn cars use significantly different race setups. The clip is cut from a race clip by Harry Sinanian who creates the best ever RC race footage. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHq3SWtIo_Y

Kindest regards,
Lars.

hi to everybody, i just got a lab c01 but haven't received it yet, so i have a couple of questions about the car, just to get ready before it gets to my hands.

do you know if i can use the the nt1 rear antiroll bars on the c01?

what battery are you using with the car? lipo or life?

have you tried the dark red shoe? how does it works?

how about using the white shock springs for a low traction track? or can i use the nt1 ones with the lab? well do they work as they were the same?

and does any of you have tried the new clutch bell? can remember de material name

and if you have any advice for the car it will be appreciate it.

by the way i got the euro version
