You can see from the photo of Bruno's car above that they have already added an extra millimetre of material across the top of the clamp.

They've acknowledged this issue and got parts with a...

I suppose Bruno should have stopped crashing into so many things. Good drivers don't need reinforced bulkheads. How can he be quick with all that extra weight?

Just make sure you are not adding lots of static timing in the ESC settings and with the motor endbell at the same time.

I've been struggling to understand this - the B6.3 has lots of bumpsteer when built to kit specs (bump-out), is this intentional and does following the recommended positions for the +3 block retain...

Yes like you say it is similar to the Xpress in layout whereas the top end cars have moved towards the Awesomatix design (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery etc etc)

Looking to replace the standard "thumb nuts" on the battery brace (sorry, too fiddly for my fingers), Exotek or RDRP seem to be the easiest ones for me to find, any feedback on one over the other?

What is it with this trend of bashing people that have problems with a car? It's happened a few times now in this XRAY thread, pretty sure Alex Hagberg or Martin Hudy wouldn't be publicly bashing...

They were created for left-right balance, I suspect a fad initiated by XRAY for one of their recent T4s, you don't see them in pictures any more.

Given the same weight of pack, the slim pack will...

Probably the same basic stuff as the MR33 V4 additive, which is quite standard in Europe. It makes the unbelted Ride tyres swell as it softens them but if I'm honest with you there isn't a...

It's sold as a performance car. Nobody buys a touring car because it's tough, they buy it because it's fast.

XRAY probably got a bit lucky with their previous generation of suspension in that it...

I thought that was certain to happen as soon as I saw the design. Two materials adjacent to each other with different properties. Put them under stress and strain and gaps will develop.

But like I...

What are the other drivers doing to deal with this, or is it a universal issue?

But only if you are unthreading the shock end by the same distance as the limiter. And I question why anyone would ever do that?

Internal limiters, as you say elsewhere, are to limit droop. Used...

So does anyone know if this a ground-up design from Associated or another acquisition? The MT10 is a Helion(?) design which means I'm slightly less persuaded to get one than if it was a true...

It just feels like such a false economy. I see "bashers" with 500-1000 invested in their car, but they're controlling it with an off-brand analogue handset that cost them 30. Futaba will sell you...

Fair play to Banggood, they responded to my problem very quickly and have given me a partial refund so I can replace the radio.

I think I just got unlucky with the QC on this one.

Apologies for being sensationalist but if one of the rulemakers is reading they need to get a G3 Justock on the bench and test the timing.

Dumbo RC radios

Just wanted to ask the good people of RC Tech about these cheap radios as it's hard to get any experienced feedback on them.

I got one in a cheap Chinese RTR car. It glitches frequently (loss of...

Amp ratings mean nothing unless there is a load. "6A setting" is a myth. Motor analysers don't apply a load (you need a true dyno for that) although I do find them quite useful for finding a starting...

These are a fairly recent invention but make mounting a servo so much more reliable.
