thanks, nice to have an appreciative audience.
By the way welshy, i tried my car at the track yesterday and found it kinda dissapointing, it handle the rough sections well but didnt have enough steering. i was looking at other peoples cars and all theirs were much lower than mine. i surmise its becuase the 3 racing springs i used were longer than the original kyoshos. i cut the front springs about 10mm which lowered the front end and it made a difference in steering, but i have too much droop now. Just wondering how much droop is necessary? and the arms should be poitning a little upwards at right height? cause i notice no one sets their arms parallel anymore.

there are certain sections of the track that is loose sand, certain sections grass and most of it where the jumps are , is some kind of hard pack dirt, i guees you could call it clay. i see the other fast drivers set their car low, not bothering if the chassis will slap hard on the big landing. they are more concerned about the corners. here are some pics of the track.http://www.rctech.net/forum/malaysia...hread-203.html

Firstly I didnt like the three racing shocks or springs for this car, I found that the Kyosho or Associated shocks were a better call for this car. I tend to use associated springs on mine now on grass and clay (if I do race on it again).

Set up wise mine are for grass and carpet so I would advise getting a setup from other guys on this thread who regularly race on clay. However I will see if I can find a basic set up for you to start off with. I did have the car with Ujs either level or fractionally under level on clay. Also do you have the 4 degree hubs on the front or 7 as that could be the reason why your understeering.

i forgot to ask a very important question, if lets say i want to use gear diffs but want the diff to be tight, what kind of oil can i put in it? keep in mind these kyosho diffs are old school ones without o rings like the modern ones, so what kind of stuff can i put in there to make it tight without it oozing out from the orifices?

i used to stick thickish grease in mine about 20 years ago,

damn i wish i still had that car (lazer-zx), went like a rocket and came 1st or 2nd most races..even against cars 5-8 yrs newer than mine.

i reckon 50,000 or 100,000 diff oil would be pretty thick,

but dont quote me on that, i'm not as well up on these cars as welshy and isobarik, just a novice, lol

My chain optima had thick sticky diff grease in them so i guess you would be fine

I used vaseline packed in but the best option would be a grease either from kyosho fir 1/8th or durango

Default problem with fibrelyte

i just received my fibrelyte ZX shock towers, and the james instone ones too, they look nice but somehting isnt right for the front mount 1. The camber link holes on the left side and the right side arent equal and symmetric ! on one side there are 4 holes, and on the other 5 holes, and they are all in different positions! what the hell happened? did they get the CADs wrong? also another anoying bit, i thought by now everyone would have figured out all modern turnbuckles use 3mm holes, not the old 2.6 kyoshos...now i will have to redrill the holes to fit in modern ballstuds, blimey.

I just screw in the associated ball joints slowly so theres no damage. No idea why your missing that hole but you wont use the one thats missing anyway. Im on the phone to them re this on monday.

i have redrilled the holes i wanted to 3mm and they work fine. the towers have a lot of mounting holes and i can easily adjust for less droop if i want. yep, its better sort it out with them cause may be some other fellow wont be so forgiving.
