HPI Vertex Toyota Soarer

Hey everyone, Here is my latest body. I still have a few small details to have it done but I think it looks complete enough to share. So many nice bodies on this site, I'm always so hesitant to post. All comments and comments welcome. |O| A few details that I need to work on are the fuel line cleanu...

Re: realistic roll cages

I would think that the break-line would do well for I use it a lot in my scalers. However, I don't use it for everything. Brass is a good alternative to keep weight down.

Re: Holding More Steering Angle

I'm a noob but..... It would seem that if you are getting too much pull in the front, you may want to try to stiffen up the front. Softer springs will give you more grip. Or soften up the rear so they grip better to get those hips swinging back and fourth. Everyone has their own driving style, but y...

Re: Question about Broad Tech/Eagle Shop

Well, after a couple of emails. I got a notification that my funds had been refunded. I then placed another order. I did not get the email confirmation that I got the first time, but when I checked on their site two days later, there was shipping label and tracking information.

Re: CS starting point

Kinda hard to say. It will depend on your gearing. From what I understand, (someone please correct me if I have been misinformed) your FDR goal is around 5.0-5.5 to keep temps down. This is a guide as far as I know. It will also depend on your ESC and all that.

Re: RC10 TC4

I have a TC4. There is some CS options available, however, everything will be custom. Yes you can use some Active Hobbies gears for a Yok drifter, but you will need to do some moding to the dif case and the gears themselves. I have seen a guy do a 1.83 CS setup. From what he has posted, it is high m...

Re: TA05 Drifter

For me the biggest difference it made was making the one wheel not move when the suspension flexed and it also made it so the I could keep the belt tension consistant. It was like having the front brace on.
