RE: masami at worlds:

this is really the most active ive heard of masami in
the nitro class which is good for the development of the
new car. It just shows how much GP has gotten popular
in Japan including the first JMRCA nitro nationals where he
did real well.

Ive been running the gt4 for 9months now and finally got the
car to work in a highbite track. Tested it 2 weeks in a row with
good results. I raced it last week and the car felt better than
my finishing result. but the over all balance of the car was awsome.

Default Question about brakes ...

Hi guys,


Even when is not a "problem", i was practicing last weekend with a couple of guys (MTX3 x2 and Nitro tc3 x1) and noticed that when i brake hard (i dont like to use brakes but on the track i was practicing i have one hard 180 curve that requires some brakes) my car slides during braking ... other cars just block the tires and break hard and i noticed that mine block the tires but it slides like "on ice" a little and after that it break.

So, any tip about this ?, its normal ? ... i tried loosing a little my breaks and it feels like the car stops better and it have less or no slide ...

Thanks in advance for any opinnion ...

cya !

if you are using a oneway try going to a difflock for the rear gear
diff. this should give you better braking and set the brakes so
that the tires don't break loose.

here is my basic set up.

gearing 16-19 pinion with 49-45 spur w/overdrive gears.
engine nova jp S3 with yokomo milke pipe.
tire size 56mm front / 60 back.


oneway front / gear diff rear w ofna diff lock.


frontshock tower is aluminum outside shock position w/long
shockend to use out side arm mount.
spring grey. w/50 wt shock oil and 1x1mm rayspeed shock piston.
toe out 1 camber 1.5 track width 198.
tire shore 40 yokomo.

reartower inside mount with standard shock end
using gray springs w/55 wt shock oil and 2x1mm rayspeed shock
piston. 2.5toe in each side and 2.5 camber.
tire shore 40 yokomo.

jwf, I didn't realize how small you were running your tires. Do you have any problem making ride height with them, and how long do they last?

Default Diff Setup

I would like to know wich configuration you guys see the most out there on your tracks ? ... :

1.- Full Differentials

2.- Front one way and rear solid axle

3.- Front one way and rear differential

4.- Front solid axle and rear differential

5.- Full solid front and rear

Here in Brazil with foams the most used at the tracks is front one way and rear diff ... and after that, full differentials front and rear.

cya !

Normally everyone (regardless of car) runs solid axles here now on small/medium tracks and on big tracks we run either full solid or solid rear/ one-way front.

For Revelation, I believe it's a front 1 way, and a very tight rear diff..

no ive been using this set for 3weekends now it is acually
3mm smaller front and back the tires are wearing down evenly
so i don't have to retrue to keep the correct overdrive ratio.
i run a ride hieght 4mm all around but if needed i can go
to 6-7 even with the tires being 3mm smaller from my set up.
just keep adjusting droop and guess what it works out better
for gearing.
