No. The mid-belt was rubbed by my other pipe and belt tensioner bearings. There are 5mm distance between that plate and belt. That plate was made by body residue.

So the plate should be above the belt ?

~ 1 mm . I think but If i have to tighten too much to get bottom end, I will change to use harder spring such as Mugen SuperHard, SMP Clutch Spring..

But If you use the clutch shoe with round spring in the center, I think u might not need to tighten so much ...
Thank you Mr.Chan and Dino too.
With that clutch combo, its enough to put me 5th on grid and finish 3rd.
To be honest, it is the car not the driver. Everybody had some fine tuning problem since the track was resurfaced.
But my 950R has not rebuilded from the last race and its getting even better funny but its true.

1 more thing Mr. Chan, what is the handling effect with putting the front arm into higher position?
My aim is to reducing the handling change vs tire wear.

On last race, start with 7.5mm split, ended up with 6.4 split.
After start, my car is only 80% dialed and getting faster and faster toward the end.
The problem is, in early lap, my laptime is down near .6 - .7 sec compare to all of the fast guys. On 80th lap marks i was down 5-6 lap already. After that, my car is fastest on the track and I can chase them and ended with 3 lap down from no1 and 1 lap from no2.

That time, I feel that my car is getting faster and the others is getting slower. After the race i was asking the reace director to print the lap to lap for me.
I was wrong. Yes im getting faster and faster but the other is damn consistant!!
Here is the figure, the fastest guy is lapping on 15.2~16.0
I made 16.5~15.9 and after lap 85-160 I can lap 16.0~15.5.
Is it me or there something we can improve on the setup?

Sorry for long reading.
Thank you

It means you do the lower roll center .. I think you get more on throttle steering .

Hey guys, anybody using the M8 radio succesfully with a fail safe? I heard from airtronics that the dynamite 2550 does not work with it and the 2551 does, dynamite also makes a 2553 micro unit that I know nothing about. Is anybody using the Venom and M8 with success

I have 3pk so fail safe is built in. If a frequency conflicts I have it set to go full break. Does yours have a feature to fail safe when there's a frequency conflict, or just too low battery or transmitter off? I generally don't like external fail safe's but just make sure you have a good rubber band or throttle return spring and you should be fine. Sometimes full break and full right steer could be hazardous at full speed.

Ok, I will try on next outing.

I try wider FR trackwidth, 255mm like you suggested.
Braking is awesome! but the car change direction bit slower. Not in chicane, its like when I avoiding something and try to get back on the line it took a lot of time.

I think u can play with the rollbar.. Harder Rollbar make the car more responsive.

Yeah, Some of my friend also said my car is dead and stable ... ha ha ..Some of my friend said he dont like the car is not so responsive for him ..but too me I like that way ..because I'm not a smooth driver ...ha ha
