Lastly, different between Hard brake liner and soft liner..


thanks you

depends how long staright is ....the key is to listen to your motor and the power band this will tell you if you need to add gear or not.....also shift point is very important...if your shift point is not correct this could throw you off making you think you have incorrect first gears when it could actually be your shft point.... Clutch must also be very good to have correct feel....hope this helps

Default 387

387 is recommended on rubber coz of the same equal diam required for the tires, not recommended when using foams

YES!

Easy, stick a small screwdriver through the bell into the adjusting nut slot.

Then turn the flywheel to adjust the nuts position on the shaft.

i should stick the screwdriver thourhg the small holes in the bell? there are two small holes one oposite the other.. i will try so, because i unscrewed two times the engine the last time i played in order to adjust the nut

for the understeer try to remove a bit droop from the front wheels try very little each time 2 degrees each time or 2 minutes of hour each time.

for me the problems with the back of the car were solved either when i changed the rear absorbers to a more vertical position or changed the shocks to harder ones (the red ones from evolva)
