I was told my Mugen that the Kawahara bodies had been submitted to ROAR, but I don't know if they will be approved before the Winternats.

I also have been told that some Kawahara body(ies) have been submitted for approval. They are not on the approved list, but it is possible that the list has not been updated. I will find out from Mugen and let you guys know.

Here's a good starting point:

Super hard spring
9.35mm from the top of the shaft to the nut
Gray shoes
Lightened centifugal shoes
.4mm gap

OR

JP spring
9.1mm from the top of the shaft to the nut
Gray shoes (red clutch shoes with JP aluminum bell)
Lightened centifugal shoes
.4mm gap

As for the different tracks, too many variables; length, traction, 2-speed shifting point, etc. Try these first and adjust as needed.

Drove my car yesterday for the first time. Overall I like the car. Traction was low but still the car was much more managable to drive than my V-One RRR under similar conditions. I'm going to give the car a full rundown today. It's a litle lazy compared to the Kyosho but I think that suits my driving style better cause I'm not that smooth of a driver.

I checked with Mugen regarding Kawahara bodies. At this time the bodies have already been submitted for approval, but Kris does not think they have been approved as of yet. He said Mike would probably know for sure but Mike is not in today.

I gave my MTX4 a full rundown too. The car seems to be VERY stable(stratus 3.1). I will have to find a way to get more steering without breaking rear traction to compete with the RRR. The track was very low traction. I think it will be better in high traction.

Uriah:

What setup do you have on your car. I may be able to give you a few suggestions. Also, do you need more on power steering, off power, or both.

The car had a bad off power push, and slightly loose on power. When I tried to push the car on power it breaks loose. I think this is mostly due to low traction.

I am using 37's all around.
rear hinge pins all the way down(I usually use this with low traction, up for high traction)
front pins all the way down
30K rear diff oil
kit shock springs
600 wt shock oil
no shims under camber link rear---middle hole inboard camber link
rear camber -3.5---2.0 front
-3 rear toe
-1 front toe
23 tooth pulley
I will play with it more when I get to FT Myers(high traction)

Basically a stock setup, any suggestion are appreciated.

Talking Another time here.... (Oh noooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Hi all:

Long time without posting (just after WNats '04), but still see many well known ones.

Two weeks ago unpacked another time y '3' and gave some tanks and noticed there's a '4' there and said.... Need one now!

Anyway... Have some pieces for the car (in fact I'll pickup tomorrow of the store). Teflon brake pads and one brake rotor (Ennetti rotor). Heard of the blue brake pads... anyone uses them? what's on them regarding the black ones?

Sheeeesh! that thread game me some hard time reading the 95 pages of posts, taken some notes for the forthcoming build. Show pictures in next days.

Have you tried 10-15k in the rear diff? That should help the off power push and on power oversteer.
