Put it all back together and all seems fine with the driveshaft ....

Anyway, reason for post, Tamiya ball studs are also an option for reducing bump steer, I've used some of their low profile types off the touring cars on both ends of the steering links and they sit very low (its the type with no external hex, but where you put the allen key in the centre of the ball, hope that makes sense) and reduce the issue.

I've also taken the spindles right down to the centreline, still seem strong enough as they stayed in one piece when the turnbuckle snapped!

Yes Dave, that makes sense. It's similar to the Yokomo ball stud where you use a 2.0 mm allen driver to put it in. The tamiya ball stud will hold up well.

More good progress today using your ideas guys, thanks

Bumpy oswestry track, tried the losi springs as suggested (red rear, green front) and also dropped to 25wt oil in the back (30wt in the front) and it was easily the best its felt! Also took a 2nd row of spikes off the outside of the front tires (plus a row off the inside) and a row of the rear outside too, and it enabled me to drive much more aggressively!

Looking forward to Eden park next week!

T'inquiete pas trop, Bob et Danny ont eu beaucoup a faire avant l'euro et avec Kampenhout. J'ai vu les nouvelle piece pour le toe-in et elles sont bien belles! La voiture est apparament beaucoup mieux avec, specifiquement sur la glisse! Sur l'accroche c'est mieux aussi. A Kampenhout la bagnolle de KevLee avez l'aire plantÚ!

Hi Sparrow,

Can you translate to English, if it was about the new rear toe in blocks, I wouldn't mind knowing when they're available and have had the same email issues with them?

I was just saying that they probably had a lot to do in the runup to Kampenhout and the euros. The new hub carriers with 2,5░ and 4░ do a lot for the car's handling, especially on slick tracks.

Kev's car looked really good at the GP!

Yeah I'm really looking forward to them coming out, I'm hoping some rear toe in will let me be more aggressive on the throttle in corners!

Hi there,

It is now one month I drive my Aero A-one, it is really nice and fast, i thank you very much for all setup you gave.

At the moment I have a very big problem to have parts.
Last time I have driven on a very treaky track with very big jump. The problem is that lots of chassis have been broken, and mine to! I had an extra one but nearly broke it again !.

I reenforced rear end with specific parts.

I really tried hard to get a new order, mail (tried all we had in web site , phone, even postal mail nobody answer, it is getting boring...

Any one has a solution for me ? (before selling the car of course)
