TNX!
To get more steering into a corner, You can also change your caster setting.
Move your upper arms more forward (less caster), this will give you more steering into the corner, but less out off this corner......

i have a brand new one as well and still have not gotten a chance to drive it. my track went out of business, and the other track which is an hour away is too small to drive a 1/8th scale on it.

Default Max power

Electrolabs,no such thing as a "stock" Maxpower if you have Fantini's onroad race engine you have one of the fastest engines out there. His aac motor while shortlived is ballistic,the R1WC version or 321P are much longer lived and also very fast.Didn't understand what you meant by stock.

You can run most any .21 onroad engine in the 4. But if you want to go really fast and you have deep pockets...JP all the way. No better combo than Mugen and JP.

Hi,
Can anybody explain to me what the difference is between the stock
clutch shoe (part number H0765) and the red clutch shoe (part number H0769) ?
What would it do and is the red clutch shoe worth the money (costs about four times more than the stock clutch shoe ) ?
Thanks,
Spiller
