599XX: Flex and Aero Short Post

Lack of Internet last week, sorry guys.... anyways, new developments.

I recently got to run my 599 and Grant M's 599 back to back, and I noticed that while mine is WAY more stable in the rear end, Grant's loses only a little bit of rear end stability but gains a lot of front end traction, whether or not the front grill is opened up. The result of this was me getting owned at our Kenon "hot lap" battles, 8.036 vs. 7.852. Clearly I'm not happy about that so I've got work...

MR-03 Chassis Configs: Stock Black vs. SP Grey

Posted 07-29-2012 at 07:21 PM by color0
Hi again after another break, everyone. For the past 2 months I've been switching back and forth between the grey SP chassis and the stock black chassis on my MR03 -- which covers both Stock and Mod class racing -- and I think I have enough data to report now.

Dear readers,

My apologies for dropping the ball the last couple months -- it's been another helluva school term and things are only winding down just now!

So, the next couple weeks are going to be a little bit of recapping of things so you can see where I've been (Mini-Z wise) and where we're going towards as the summer season approaches. And to start that off, I kept some pictures from the Tekin race in March that may prove helpful for those new to Mod racing on...

Consistency Wins: Using TH. SPEED to Tune Gear Diffs

Posted 02-19-2012 at 09:59 PM by color0
Updated 07-29-2012 at 05:09 PM by color0
One of the curiosities I've encountered after making the switch in my car from ball diff to gear diff is how the instantaneous power delivery causes a lot of problems with my setups -- setups that have been honed very carefully for the smoother power delivery of a ball diff. What happens? Well, in my case, I get a bunch of spin-outs on power:

Since my setups tend to emphasize turn-in oversteer and powering out of the corner before the apex, I...

Of course, he is referring to the stock top shock that comes with MR-02 and MR-03 chassis kits:
