It does strip out easily especially if you get air born, the shock of the landing will deform the plastic. That's why there was a metal altenative on the V-One RRR.

Soon though there will be an even better alternative from Skyline RC.

Hehehe.... the same but multiplied by many is what happens on a 1/8 scale if you got airborne at full throttle.... twisted dogbones and munched outdrives... expensive repair if you do it another time with a solid core, only god may know what you can blast if on another time you go airborne.

Yes it was a bad idea to run without the engine brace. I did not think it would make that big of a difference. But as of now, the engine brace is back on.

Hi... Tag

From my understanding:
Low: the suspension arms are lower from the ground, for high traction track.
Med: the suspension arms are in the middle, for medium traction.
High: the suspension arms are stay higher from the ground so the car can have more roll, for low traction track.

But I could be wrong.

Rear block position :

A = lowest = more body roll, more rear grip, suitable for low grip track, bumpy or dusty track.

B = middle = neutral

C = highest = less body roll, suitable for high traction track or high grip technical track.

Ackerman steering block :

A = aggressive steering, good for technical track

B = neutral

C = smoothest steering, good for sweeper / high speed.

Rear upright (upper link) position :

More angle = more grip, more side bite, more body roll, suitable for low grip

Less angle = less grip, less side bite, less body roll, suitable for high grip.

fren, me thought of that too lastime but it wasn't,well actually my case was the sway bar touching,better check on the 2nd gear housing wether t6he ring u mention is like 2mm wide or not?coz if its the clucth bell,u gona have like dented few spots due to the clucth movement,but i think yours is the same as mine. You can try to make the sway bar linkage bit longer and adjust your droop properly,actually it happens when its like airborne.

If you are using A block = lowest. How can it be more body roll since the suspension arms are almost flat to the ground?
