Looks a hell of a lot like it Manti....

Why have you gone with it Cartman? What's wrong with the stock one..... The only reason I can think you would want to run the heavy ass Kfactory one is if your running in the rain.... I would have pulled out by then, I hate cleaning my bearings....

Manti is spot on. out off 8 nationals in the UK we had 5 dry meetings.
somtimes we have to run in the wet
Mugens effort is a cover NOT a box, i can now fit and forget. when i have a minuite i will put my car in its wet weather set up. you can then see how wet it does get.......................the water comes over the bonet(hood) of car and in the windscreen!!!

thats pretty cool that the rain doesnt stop you

i have tried and the foam tires dont work well in rain so i stop

but i race 1/8 buggy and i think they should run rain or shine but even if it rains a little in the morning it seems almost nobody shows they must be afraid to get wet

Yep.... one thing don't get me clear, what you race on UK, cars or submarines?

Last year I raced one time like you describes.... was quite funny to see how the water flew over the car on the backstraights (curious, figured that spray formed on the back of the car, not in the front.

BTW: My pocket is hurt from these race: One motor ruined by hydrolock, one receiver and two servos got drowned on that race (Grrrrrr!)

ah forgot to say i run rubber tyres as thats the biggest class in the UK, pitz treaded narrows give as much grip in the wet as slicks in the dry!!

There are foam sets for wet and moist. In fact, the only affordable set of foams for wet are the MicroSystem 'Aqua'.

For moist, have other set made from Enneti and is called 'Umido'.

These two tyre sets are the most soft on shore degrees that I've seen (18 shore degrees for Aqua and 23 for the the Umido).

But if you don't want to slam your head finding them, a good set of Pit Shimizus makes wonders on wet condition.
