That S.T.S. pipe you have on your car is a bit restrictive, if you remove the stinger and drill a hole in the baffle then replace the stinger the motor will breath a lot eaiser.

What would the hole drilling do for me? and what size? Pipe seems to be fine power wise.

That's a lot of toe in in the rear I see. How's the aluminum pulleys treating the belts? No external fuel filter?

And yes, why is there a transponder holder at the side of the car when you already mount the personal transponder in the front?

I think Mark will agree to give you lots of points on the car's cleanliness

But seriously, I think the extended fuel lid protruding out on top of your bodyshell will give you problems when the car overturns. The lid will open and fuel will spill out because the track will inadvertently pull it open when the car overturns and slides on the top of the shell.

Perhaps it will be a better idea if you get a longer cable tie to make the lid extend and protrude out to the rear of the bodyshell. That is what I see most of the team drivers do.

What I do to mine is I make a short loop with the cable tie just like what the AE team drivers do to their NTC3.

I run a 5 port .12 NovaMega MS engine. My other friend was running the Novamax. Both on 705 and with same gearings.

For your info, the NovaMax is actually based on the new NS12 engine and modded by Italian Novarossi / Serpent driver Massimo Fantini. Watch him out at the 1/8th scale European Championships in Oslo.

The alum. pulleys seem to be easy on all belts, the front pulley is the culprit of all. Tried the ext. filter and doesn't seem to work for me cause of maint. after a few runs.I find it is not needed.
As for the transp. holders,I run at different tracks and some are not prepared for personals.

Pics were shot at diff. times. I don't seem to have a problem flipping over as you (oops...) some people do. But I see your point.....thanks. I have been trying out things daily on the car so it just gets brushed off, and goes right back on the track.

Slander, Sir! My lawyer will be in touch!

Anyway - its Friday and its my turn to post some (D1) pictures!

Anyone else cut the rear bodywork like me? I was hoping to increase the rear downforce by means of utilising "ground effect". I notice all of the electric guys do it, but they don't have cooling holes in the body work, so the "ground effect" will be much better.
I suppose the question is: does this work for Nitro cars with cooling holes?

Cheers, Mark.
