Just a quiet night, no one really to race against, so played with a setting or two, start mode on the ESC is interesting, directly relates to speed more than I’d have guessed, but no match for gearing up, and I am out of gearing, 32 pinion is like ok to maybe 59mm tyre, so […]

Really good meeting with the MTX5 this afternoon/evening… Finally had some of my own servos to use, Savox Low Profile (thanks to Steve for the loan of the Swana), and a new LiFe pack, full size, all fitted in nice and look good gear, but I hit the track needing to do some quick work, […]

Second real outing in Pro with the MTX5, mixed emotions about where it’s at. With the 2 hole pistons up front and 450cst oil, it’s soaking the bumps better, and it’s got turn, but still not the balance I’m after, working at finding the steering I want, and making it drive how I want seems […]

Fun night, Snap playing with motors, me just generally messing around with gearing and some settings, both of us going rather quick. My Photon really has some nice qualities about it, right now it’s gripping so well on 35’s, though the Speedmind 35 rears ‘feel’ and even wear more like a 37, which is odd, […]

Nitro 200mm IC time for me, and first outing with the new MTX5, with special thanks to Steve and several others for loan of gear to get out a lot sooner and try the new car. Early start for me which was a killer, but checked a few things and dropped the car onto the […]

Another casual race night at EPR, fun had all around, killing me with the gearing, pushing me so hard, trying not to choke when being stalked on track, Luke also out with a 4.5T making life hard, but all still good fun. Off the start I tried front foams on all 4 corners, but the […]

One of those strange nights where your head and body ain’t in it I think, back spasms had me in quite a lot of pain half the night, so I was almost glad to let a friend (Luke) take some of the runs with my Photon. Snap was still geared to the moon and back, […]

A few people came to play, bloody Snap decided to gear way up though, talk about hard to keep pace with, he beat my best lap time, and I spent the whole night fighting to keep ahead of him, in the final I geared up one and managed to equal his best time, only for […]

Another very quiet Friday night… Forth race night on the 37/40 shore Capricorn foams, they will easily do a fifth, this set had not touched a truer (as I still don’t have one), and apart from a little uneven wear, they still drive just fine. I previously lowered the rear arms to gain more rear […]
