Re: Light Kits, looking for one is frustrating!

The Team Tetsujin lightkit can do something like that. Controlled by the amount of throttle though as I understand it.

Re: OTA R31/B

The suspension mounts are the stock Streetjam plastic parts. I had to drill the holes a bit more inwards to make them fit, but that was an easy match.

Re: CS vs 50/50 vs shaft vs belt

So if you are trying get as close to real drifting as possible wouldn't you want to use a shaft car as oppose to a belt car? If you want to get as close to a real car as possible, you should go for Rear Wheel Drive all the way. - Or a very high CS rate, above 2.0 the car will slip sideways at the s...

Re: DIY GoPro Camera Swivel mount for RC Cars test

Looks great, can you post some pictures of the swivel mount? - How does it work? Can you control, where it is turning to or is it just loose on some ball bearings, so it rotates due to the momentum of the car?

It for sure produces some great shots.

Re: OTA R31/B

I drilled a new hole into the suspension arms to get the dampers further in and make more steering possible with the stock pasts. - But even then I needed an offset of 8mm minimum with the original steering to keep clear of the dampers. - Right now it also works with 4mm offset fine, since the front...

Re: OTA R31/B

I should update this as well. - The Yokomo lower caster hubs and knuckles gave a lot of play and vibration as well. I wouldn´t recommend those.

I now converted to 10° TA-05 C-hubs and Yokomo DRB Knuckles (the normal ones) - I am using TN-Racing CVDs with those and steering is smooth till full lock.

Some Updates. - I changed to a lateral battery position for now. I noticed in some videos, that my old EagleRacing TA05 actually made a very nice impression in turns and switchbacks. - Gonna give that layout a try in the OTA for that reason - :up: https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-fr...

Re: Got the CS kit installed...Now how do I get more drift angle

You´re talking about the rear not kicking out enough anymore? Setup wise the shocksprings are the usual suspects to look for first, put some stiffer springs in the rear and it will come around much harder. But those A drift tires are also not a very good choice, much too grippy. - I don´t know the s...

Re: TA06 *(rw)d

With the same tires it is also about half the speed, since the rear wheels are more spinning than pushing forward. - So to get up to a decent speed I had to change the rear tires to more grippy ones. I´m experimenting with different tires on different surfaces at the moment, to see what works best.

Re: TA06 *(rw)d

Since nobody wanted to buy the TA06 for a decent price, I chose to use it as the base for a RWD project. This is the current status, still in the early stages of modding and trying to find a working setup. - It´s actually a lot of fun trying to figure that out, just like CS three years ago. ^^ http:...

No, only if you remove the damper. Since the shock can´t extend that far the cvds stay in place.

Re: when will we get a real chassis?

Talking about "real" weight distribution a chassis should weigh around 120kg in scale 1/10 to start with. With a proper motor the tires should also be smoking then, while drifting. :mrgreen:

Re: where to buy 8 deg chubs

Not sure about some specific parts for the tc-fd. But C-Hubs are pretty much universal. Maybe some Eagle Racing C-hubs (from broadtech.hk) will fit your chassis? Look e.g. for Tamiya TA05 or Ta06 parts. Otherwise just add some kickup to your chassis, this is the cheapest way to increase caster. All ...

Re: Active Rear Link Suspension Kit, any good?

I didn´t have much more driving experience after the last report. Since I sold the kit again.

Re: Corner exit grip

OK, use some well run in tires then? Most tires have a point of wear, that gives the most grip. You could also try to experiment with weights on your chassis or in the bodyshell. We had a similar situation in the dutch competition. Running on polished concrete with very hard Yokomo tires. Some of th...
