Keep it up!
Where is the track btw?
the place tat i flip is because d traction is high causing my rear stick there and cause me hit d curb....for me some place still not enough steering....actually i like to drive understeer for my ep as i can use last minute brake but since brake is not allowed in driving 1/8 so i guess i need to make d car more steering yet not oversteering...now the car is understeer in certain corner where i cant take tight corner....

i heard we need to truer the rear tyre to certain size to get the best performance out from the tyre when race qualifying. Wat size is recommended ?

normally how low or high d spoiler should i put? i'm using central shell..

d picture is d 960 i'm using now...

First you got to choose what is your problem: oversteer or understeer. Then the location of the problem, corner entry, corner exit, mid corner. Afterwards, pick if its on-throttle or off-throttle. Then after picking these three, you have selected only 1 row... Within 1 row you will find what changes you need to make in order to eliminate your problem. If its green, means it needs to be soften, lowered or somewhere along that line. If its red the opposite. The numbers are there to tell you which has the biggest effect on your problem. 1 being the highest.

Hope this helps...

My best guess would be a combination of running a narow front track (with bone going deep into the outdrive) and too much suspension travel. This could result in contact between the outer edge of the outdrive and the shaft where it broke. I have never seen one snap like yours. I have bent a few, but never broke.

the outdrive has a 1mm shim before put into the one way.. i think it's a default rite?

another thing is, i notice the both broken CVD(left) is short around 1-2mm than d right CVD. will this causing the problem ?

my front droop is -1 , camber is -1, ride height is 7mm.

Hi guys...

Im new in this threat as ive only just went into 1/8 GP recently. Driving serpent 960 07. Simple question, i am using a front dogbone axle. I noticed the front dogbone being a lil too short when turning my steering full, ie. possible of dogbone flying off! I thought of reducing the front width so that my dogbone goes deeper into the outdrives n therefore reducing the possiblity of the dogbone flying off as i turn my steering deep. However, by doing so, the front tires will seem to have contact with my knuckles....any advise besides changing to CVD? thanks

response from the Pro will only come in the early morning.

So sad, one broken (kschu), one worry that its going to break (rocky). Why don't you guys ask Ah Boon or Chris. I'm sure they know this. Other than new kit or new parts.

I suspect you two drove too fast for others to duplicate the same problem. Hehehehe. Just kidding friends.
