and SPRacer, sweet mod dude, something to definitely look into... again, a bit rusty but I think lowering the rear roll-center should give the rear end more predictable traction by allowing the car roll a bit more in the corners and rid the car of a washy rear end... great to correct the mid-corner and on-power capabilities of the car. Or so I imagine, but dreaming ain't nothing compared to reality. Need to try it on some of my many extra H blocks I got in my spares collection.
I'll pull the blocks off and show you how I've modified them, you have to use the "L" block upside down, and machine down a 2.5 mm cap head screw to fit in the chassis hole.

getting the sway bar to work with the RRR rear arms was tricky...

Main difference, with this set up you can run the shocks layed right down, the car is better on the bumps, puts the power down .

I used to always run almost fully vertical rear shocks, whenever I layed them down the car felt weird - not any more!

sweet dude, just what my car needs. But RRR arms? Didn't notice that one... where are my eyes?

With foams, my car is just fine, but with rubber tires (sometimes I run both on the same car in the same day to race another class) the low blocks are a must... with this mod it should make the car have a bigger sweet spot as far handling goes. And I'm with ya SP about having to stand up the rear shocks... when I lay 'em down, I never know what the heck to think but change it back.

The nemesis is a bit more stable than the Mazda, but the Mazda is stable enough as is. I prefer how the Mazda feels in the middle of the corner. A little more balanced front to rear. Rotates nicely. All this is my opinion, of course; but for 40 bucks you can try them both back to back on the track.

Yeah, just cut it off with a sharp knife.
I'll pull it apart and take some pics in the next day or so...


Ran it again today - it's awesome

Front shocks 1 hole out from the inside - 70 wt oil 2 hole piston
Front springs - kyosho silver (soft)

Rear shocks - as per the pic, 50 wt oil , Kyosho long black springs ( medium)

spool in the front, 10000 wt oil in the rear..
I also removed the blue spacer from the outer link on the rear hub ( raise rear roll center slightly - more forward bite)

great turn in, stable on power, excellent on the bumps

Ive got something slipping in my gearbox but its not the oneway bearing.
But when it gets heated it stops slipping.

Anyone know what this could be.

Carefull on the ring gear inside the gearbox. The original iron cast is easy to wornout.

Check to make sure your flywheel is tight, as well.
