In your 2nd picture it looks like the rear right hub carrier is disconnected at the top, is it? or is it just my imagination cause it looks alot more leaned in then the other side.

Is it the scrw is coming out?

Cause i had to buy a new turnbuckle for my pure-10-mantis and then loctite it in, and yes it was metal to plastic, but that was all's i could do to keep it in, or u can use silicone in the hole in replace of loctite

Just some info,


A quick question, does the car want to step out when exiting the corner more and more as you get through the race?

Well that could be your problem the scrw is coming out allowing the hub to move backwards and forwards throwing the car around, because it would eb pushed forwards on entry to the corner, then as you accelerate out it moves backwards shift the car around in many ways.

And i just had a major case of Deja Vu.

I think of rote that b4.


Any way, have you got MSN (hotmail) messenger?

A couple things, the black springs are too hard for the rear. Use a white (softest), yellow (next softest), or red (one step harder). You can probably go with the black in the front or go with a green which is one step harder then black.
Also, get slicks. The difference between and treaded tires is big.
And... use CA rather than locktite. the locktite might make it weaker. It like 'burns' (eats away at) some plastics. Plus CA will hold better, but you can still take it apart with effort. As long as the screw doesn't touch anything else metal, because the CA will then bond unbelievably stronger. Shoe goo also works well. if you intend to take this part out a lot, then shoe goo is the best choice. Just let it dry for a good long time. And don't use very old shoe goo, it loses a lot of its strength when exposed too much to air.

U also have to be careful that you don't get it on the Hub carrier and the suspension arm, only put itin the hub carrier.

Oh yeah, good luck for your next race! Hopefully one of our many suggestions might be the one that makes you faster on the track.

Your car is hard to tune because of the lack of adjustments. And it is also, a very inconsitent car, so as you can already tell, you may have to change your driving styles during a race. And remember, its always the cars fault, expecially when you have a Nitro RS4


initialD, I know what your saying, but the thing is, I've tried it. Sorex med's are too soft, and they leave an excessive air gap between the tire and the insert. I've found HPI inserts to be fit better and be more consistent. Again, there is another problem, I can't inserts harder than their blue 24mm pro inserts (or whatever their called). These are supposed to be med-hards, but they don't have hards in 24mm. They have several hard 26mm inserts but they are actually softer than the med-hard blue inserts.
And the tires, my 36's begin to overheat at the 12-13 minute mark during a race. And so I lose a little bit of traction until the end of the race. If the race is close and I try to preserve my tires, someone always dives under and our wheels tap pushing me off my line and losing my position so going to save my tires doesn't help unless I'm a lap up. 40's never seem to get hot enough, even with med. Sorex inserts. you skate around too much. Yes, loose setups give you fast lap times, but if it is at the cost of consistency, its not worth it. I just adjust my diffs or hard springs to loosen my setup.
