Yeah before i got my RR i used a friends and he used a one way and the only way you could brake was one quick tap on the brake but it didn't really make much of a diffrence so i learnt not to use the brake. just to control the acceleration.

They seem to chunk quite a bit.
Do you use the diffrent hardnesses to stop traction roll

tyres chuncking,...

check the outside bearing, usually the rear tires

I use 37's all around. Fast Tyre, Spyder, Ellegie and Twister. They work about the same. I'll be running Twister at the winter Nats.

Chaps where we race (narnyrx3 and I) traction rolling is not a problem, as we race on a car park track

So do i but unfortunatly for about 5 hours the day before we spend time brooming the track blowing the track spraying the track (for alot better traction) and setting the track up.

If you like blisters the size of you're hand you'll have the time of you're life.

I would like to thank everyone for all the help. This past weekend 01-21-06 at my local HobbyTown race track, I TQ the nitro stock class. http://www.rcfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11150 My lap times were just as fast as the mod guys but when your racing against some of the top drivers in the US. Guys like Brandon McNally, Ron Atomic, Al Guerra, Cody Gary, and Todd Bath. You have to come with your A game. I think I'm like a B+.

I need more mid corner steering. This weekend I will try 1deg. toe-out and add more front droop.

I'll post some pics of my car tonight.

I love this car.

thanx again.
