Default Racing.

I raced today... it was OK. I was basically getting my car set-up and tuned. I made a few observations too, learnt a bit .

First observation: Take-Off tyres are worse than my 7-month-old Kyosho rubbers that have been mistreated so badly (doughies etc.) ! Some how, the CS32s (front) wore lots more than the CS27s on the rear !

Ok... so maybe I only made one major observation, but it's Kyosho rubber for ever from now on !

The VR has square indicators not the S

its a sign to tell if u have an R or S.


Also slight adjustment of camber and toe will adjust your wear on the front.


what setup u running?

God knows... I just do it and if it works I stick to it! I don't have a setup station.

Seriously.... in my experience... Kyosho tyres are shiteloads better than both Take-Off and Sorex. My rating would be: 1st - Kyosho, 2nd - Sorex, 3rd - Take Off.

That's my experiences. Who knows... maybe they suit my driving style or how I like my car set up.

Default Which Radio?

Well, I'm seriously looking into getting a new radio, but I need some thoughts and what better people to ask .

The only radios I'm really interested in is the JR R1 and the Futaba 3PK.

Hope someone can shed some light.

I'm thinkin' of using a digital servo for steering and an analogue for the throttle/brake.

I have used an R1 and it felt good/comfy.... but I've also heard good things about the 3PK.

Hey Phill, i dont like the wheels that much either.

i have seen em heaps on all sorts of done up cars, and they seem to look out of place on most cars.

most of all chrome mags look out on most holdens.

try a set of VT SS mags, they look good when they r gold tinged.

I dont what your game is but your constant niggling and piss-poor attemps at trying to discredit what I say only make a clown of yourself, This is taken fron the GMH 2002 year book and if you dont believe me ring your local Holden Dealer you shit stirer

And if thats not enough, heres a pic of the compliance plate you deadbeat

The major improvements with the VS are the introduction of the ECOTEC 3800 V6, and a passenger airbag. The ECOTEC (Emissions and Consumption Optimisation TEChnology) V6 is more powerful, more economic, produces less emissions, quieter and smoother than the previous 3800 V6. The VS Series was the first Australian built car to offer a passenger's airbag, which has a capacity of 120L. Also the Bosch ABS was upgraded to the latest version, and the new Holden badge was introduced.

A change to the security system allows only the driver's door to be opened, or all four doors instead of just opening all four doors straight away as in previous models. Also a rolling security code system has been incorporated to improve security.
Quote:
Not much visual differences to VR, except for new Holden badge, ECOTEC badge under indicator lights on side front panels, and slightly different wheel covers. The VS also has a silver insert around the edge of the front grill opening. Also the top edge of the boot is slightly different.
Quote:
Not much change with VS Series II, except that Calais now gets 16 inch alloy wheels and foglamps, with its two-tone paint job slightly different. Manual gearbox on ECOTECs is now Getrag. The V8's power is up slightly to 168kW. The Calais also gets the option of the Supercharged V6. The indicator lights on the side front panels are now oval in shape. The interior has also been slightly revamped.

No idea sorry Dave. some of the newcastle guys up here experimented with different ones but it was literally a case of going into Frontline etc and going through boxes and physically looking. And even then i dont recall they had a lot of luck!

Sorry there Mr Racer, but I have been pre-occupied of late as you may have read. As I said before when youre at the track try different radios feel them and if possible throw a crystal in and try them (you can do this with Futaba as the radios are basically the same design with different buttons and trims etc)
Get the radio that has the features you want and then make sure it feels good!
