I think I'm all set ( thank you AFM and Robbie ).

The car is doing very well today, no oversteer and no understeer !!! it's just perfect. Entry corner speed is good ( off throttle ) as well as accelerating corners ( on throttle ). I can hold my racing line and even take somebody's racing line

Sometimes I get traction roll but you can blame it to bad tires choice. I'm checking tommorow weather outlook in Jakarta:

Saturday : 50% chance of raining, cloudy all day, 82F
Sunday : 30% chance of raining, morning cloudy and sunshine in afternoon, 88F

Okay!! I'm ready !!!

Mine is also less than 200 mm.

I would like an answer to this as well.

I'm around 194mm I THINK

Less track width should provide you with more corner speed and more traction. This will also make the car a little less stable, but I always run the front less then 200mm.

Thanks man.

My car is stable right now.

It has to much traction though, the car sticks to the pavment to much for my taste.

If I loosen the pivot balls up and make it around 198, the car will loose some traction right/

Hello Guys...

I'm havin problems making 5 minute quals with all of my engines... Anybody tried those extra venturis that have less inner diameter? My tank is making 4:45 minutes and I needed it to about 5:20... Which one should I get? do Hety make 5.3? 5.2? Do they scrub much power?

another issue, my car seem to be quite dialed on turns... But on race some other drivers... seem to take the turns faster... my car seem to lack in speed while turning... If I increase my dual rate, the rear end would come happily...
I was thinking of reducing track width... as mentioned before...what else can I do? I'm using Monotuning Tyres... I may change for some 2mmOffset ones like fast or so, then the roll center would be changed, in benefit of turn speed... What else you guys think I can do?

thanks in advance...

Sorry of da Long post...

Entry corner speed problem ? Try lighter oil like 40w first try, 50w second try.

Small diameter Venturi ? They scrub power but increase fuel economy.

AAA packs are the only ones that will fit on the car in its intended position. You can get 1000mAh batteries at this place http://www.thomas-distributing.com/ap-1000-2.htm
These are the highest capacity I've seen, but I haven't tried them.

Got to batteries pluss. They built me a 1000mah nm-hi pack for $22.00. I also took a some Sanyo industrial batteries and stacked them to give me a better pack of 1350mah. They are Sanyo Twicell HF-A1U batteries. They look like a stack of PEZ candies and they take all the space that is available under the fuel tank area but I don't have to worry about a long main.

Thats an easy fix.

I have the Mugen X-12 and it is known for poor fuel economy.

I reccomend getting a very long fuel line from the gas tank to the engine, longest you can get.

After that, purchase a good fuel filter.

This will get you to about 7-8 min.

I've already had probelms with low pressure because of the long fuel line... But... I plan to race on sanctioned events... So, my tank and fuel line must be 75ml....
