Well, while I am by no means a saint, I do actually buy all my songs (CD or through iTunes) as well as DVDs/Blu Ray/Computer Programs.

Call me crazy in this modern world where people (including,...

Well, this is a discussion that will never be truly be resolved as there are arguments for both sides. One argument against buying cheap knock-offs that I have not yet seen is this: you rip off those...

My point exactly. So explain why it would be "redonkulous"?



No argument there other than that this point has nothing to do with the roll center itself. If your point is that if you change the...

I am not getting carried away, I am doing what any engineer would do to show that something is not linear, go to the extremes. With RC cars -4 or -5 will still in almost all situations result in...

I am an engineer and unfortunately you are wrong. Ever tried -20 degrees camber? You will find you will have almost no grip during cornering since the contact patch on the tyre is reduced to almost...

Try a narrower front track width (e.g. B-B blocks with the short arms). That's what I almost always run outdoors.

Actually, that depends. In flowing corners increasing Ackerman would in fact decrease mid corner steering as the inside wheel will lose grip and start dragging. Either one of two things will occur at...

Ok, first the definition. The Ackerman angle is the difference in angle between the inside and outside front wheel during cornering. For simplicity think full steering lock.

Ok, so does the IIC in Vegas count? Ok, the 416 did not win but 6th, 8th and 10th (3 cars in the A) for a team that, as far as I know, did only one (!) foam race the whole season is not too bad....

Yes, had the same issue. Still had the issue, like you, after switching to the square alloy arm. Upon close inspection I found that even with the square arm there is a little bit of play in the servo...

Yeah Mark, that second one was fun. Deserved two winners ;)

At this level even a small difference is noticeable in the right hands (which they all have ;) ). However I think two things should be taken into account here. First, looking at the footage it...

I wouldn't say that. It depends on what works best for you. I invariably run program 3 on my LRP TC speedo and use the timing on the motor to fine tune. But then that is me running mod. For stock and...

Sure most racers are your average Joe's (or Joe the Plumber? ;-) ) but then this was true when these big events were filled to the brim too. So not sure this means there are too many. Besides, if...

If it is about passes then the best one for me is Atsushi's pass in one of the LRP Master's final where he went by both Pavidis and I believe Leino in the middle of a tight chicane in a space of only...

Especially when you think there is a world championship at stake during the move and believe me, these guys were feeling the tension and nerves big time.
