The stratus is still a great body for tracks where the grip is high and you want fairly low drag. It is not outdated, but it just needs to be used in the right circumstances.

Try the ( C ) ackerman on the bellcrank, it will give you better corner speed with lots of turn in.

If you can get some GQTires WWW.RCTexas.com
I haven't test it yet, ....... it's new car.

Those springs come from xray t1 fk, they are more progressive than mtx's.

Could you tell me the effect on A-B-C steering bellcrank ? I'm using A as in the book.

Thanks dude..... My LHS buddy also suggest another side hole or open the rear windscreen as wide as possible.

BTW...... is it true the front / gas tank hole's and ignition hole's diameter are regulated ? can't cut over otherwise get disqualification ?

I'm using 26mm tires all around because I'm thrifty...... I can switch back on forth the front and rear tires. It should be okay, right ?

That wont work, the front and rear are quite different rubber/foam compound.

that's because you are using rears at the front or fronts at the rear as you stated above. use fronts at the front (36mm) and rears at the rear (30mm) and it will be fine.

TWISTER TIRES

The rims look similar to the Enetti Serpent foams so if they're similar then they're awesomely strong and lots of grip.

Last year, a guy at the track had them on a Serpent 710 and was very pleased with the compound.

Great tires!! The rims are super strong. Also the foam compound is consistent and provides plenty of traction. Give it a try and see for yourself. Customer service is also great.
