Tks to "someone" on the web space.

You need DIVX to patch your WMP to view the video clips.

I don't own a NovaMax, but shimming the engine isn't as easy as removing heatsink, raise the button and add one shim. All depends on the place you usually run, the actual weather and others. Experiment yourself and see your results. But i warn you that playing with the shims is a source of potential danger of grenading your engine.

All what you need is a baseline for starting, see how many says the owners manual for the % of Nitro you will use.

The question now is, how much would the change affect turning ability of the car?
Seems like people who use the "B" or "C" ackerman arms do not experience the universal breakage or losing dogbones problems. Must be due to less inside wheel throw.

A fellow MTX-3 racer uses the "B" ackerman arm with excellent results so I doubt the MTX-2 front uprights will reduce its turning ability especially since we hardly ever run the steering "lock to lock"

Sad to say, there is nothing on the manual.
Any advice from my wise old friend, Manticore?

i didnt do this trick long time. i did it while i was still playing around with Ass o RC300.

use a soldering wire to measure the head room chamber. I dont really know the starting point you need but you might want to measure a tuned up engine head clearence and use that as a reference for a starting point.

wow! this method sounds primitive.
so you dont shim your engines anymore?
for my S5, i need to put 2 copper shims to make it stable. No shims and it will overheat easily.

i havent run my MAX an NS12 yet ! i usually put 2 shims on top of the stock shim for 30% nitro. and I put 3 shim (0.3) for high performance engine. you really need to test it out yourself on the fine adjustment.
