What controller are you using? Maybe try turning down the dual rate.

Make sure you don't accidentally have a Narrow tie rod in a Wide configuration, it will give crazy toe out.

That car is brand new so I haven't seen one in RL, but looking at the picture, I would maybe look at sanding down that plastic part just a little on one side, so it clears the disc. I imagine we're...

Probably just as helpful as tire selection when it comes to driving on floors, a good wet mop, or a wipe-down with a wet towel. Sticky tires attract a thin layer of dust, rendering them useless. Use...

Quite often, I see people put the transponder too far forward so it's under the hood, especially with rear-cab bodies like the AMG and Corvette. If you use a phone camera, you can see the infrared...

IMO, there are 3 basic categories: camera-based visual timers, Easylap-based systems (infrared), and iLap-based systems (also infrared). There are also RF tag ones, but I'm not familiar with those...

Totally agree. So tired of having to have the conversation with people entering the hobby, and trying to explain how the radio format choice is more important than anything else. It requires you to...

probably not a matter of "safe," but more likely it won't work. Once you release the magic smoke, it's usually over unless you're an electronic engineer.

There are 3 knobs on the controller, one of them is steering trim, one is dual rate, and the third controls the rate of flashing on the lights. If you make it as fast as possible, it looks solid...

Is this an AWD configuration? If it's RWD, I think it's more than 1.5 all around.

Had a similar experience. Used to race on a painted plywood floor that we thoroughly wet-mopped with hot water / ammonia, and it was still a semi-drifting session, or like dirt track racing. You...

If you're trying to keep it cheap, stick with AAA, and need full electronics and a TX, I don't think you're going to beat a Mini Z readyset.

It should work fine. I've used an EX-1UR with a 901SM module (ASF) and it worked fine with that receiver. It also works with the Das Mikro ASF boards.

Pretty sure it's an R246-1351

It's LM width, yet that particular damper that comes with it will only do 98mm. I have 2 of these chassis, they're nice. I swapped out that 12000kv motor though.

I'd maybe try harder front springs. Red are soft, aren't they? Yellow = stiff? Can you elaborate on "twitchy / settle down"?

Oh, and what tie rod are you using? too much toe out can cause a lot of...

The reason for cutting is once you invert them, the non-ball long end hangs out the bottom, and will drag on the track if you don't cut them. I use a full size set of wire cutters and just snip it...

It's easy to do, and it's free. The benefit is that the steering knuckle only needs to pivot around the kingpin, as when it's inverted, the kingpin moves up and down with the suspension, rather than...
