I suggest a Stratus 2.1, Vexhaull Vectra or Crowd pleazer. I haven't used Accord bodies before, but the ones I suggested should work. I really suggest the 2.1 because you can move the wing forward or rearward for different performance at higher speeds... It makes little difference at low speeds, but it is very helpful because we rebuild the track so often.


If you want to know, move it forward for less rear downforce, and more to the rear for more traction... but again I say, it doesn't make much of a difference for much of our track.

Default Bodies

Beware of the HPI Alfa Bodies on HIGH traction open tracks. They have so much steerimg. Really unbalances the car and makes the car traction roll. I've tried many bodies and with the stock mugen set-up the old style stratus still works the best for me.

The O-ring from the shock absorbers will do the job nicely

Barry Baker used the new Alfa 190mm body for his win in eletric races. hope the 200mm version will be out soon .
I try to explain why majority of the racers there used Alfa body shell.

it was the Reedy race where racers are not allowed to use oneways. they choosed Alfa body to compensate for the understeer generally caused by a full time 4WD car.

cartman,

I noticed that in your pics of your cut-down hubs, one set are cut down more than another set in a different pic.

Was it a result of trail and error and if so which one provided the best results?


I'm about to try out a set of hubs which were cut down 5mm. Just curious how it would work on our hot and slippery track. Hope it works.

Well, it was so smooth that the oil didn't get a chance to leak out. Manticore strongly supported it.
