It's time for a new body as I think I have pushed the Mclaren F1 fast enough that I can't do anything else to it to improve my time. Going back to the Ferrari Enzo just like what I started with the MR-02 car. Can't wait to see what I can do with it as the car is wider now!

Those Atomic dishes... :confused: Why? They look so cheap to me. Ah well, to each his own.

Hey what kind of antenna are you running?

Also, do you have an atomic-type damper when running those alloy motor mounts? I have to MM alloy mounts, and the stock spring doesn't fit...

thanks!

PC, try driving more consistantly. You're very fast, but not consistant. Plus, track width is one of the keys to body selection, i.e. Enzo for high speed since need stability, which is track width (not track like race track, but wheel axle width). McLaren F1 is very good for tight tracks due to its narrow track. This allows the car to roll more, thus more weight transfer, possibly giving better steering characteristics. Plus, the track you're racing on is small. You'll probably will find the Enzo to be less sensitive and a bit of a dog in the in-field sections. Try the Lambo Mur.... like the rest of us. With the narrow offset front, it gives nice steering response. Anyway, it's all in the setup and making it suit your driving style.

best of luck!

Who is this? I agree what you said, I still lack consistency. I need more practice! Anyway, I told MZHS track to change to a more open layout so I should be okay with the Enzo. I'm also setting the Enzo car preparing for the Mini-Z trophy race. :)

Hey, is this Shawn? I figured it was you. I chose the Enzo body not only because of its wide rear track width but the body shape. Mclaren indeed is a good body but too twitchy for my driving style, the rear always wants go out on me with slightly worn tires. I also used the Mclaren body for so long that I should change to a new body to see if there is any improvement.

Hey! Yeah, it's me...i.e. Fatboy1.
Cool. Went by last night and the track looks good with the new upper level rebuilt since Calvin smoked the old one by standing on it!

I used the Murcielago last night with the Enzo rims (they fit by the way). It was pretty good but since the track was redesigned, grip was crap. I switched to some Tamiya foams on Enzo rims (with no traction compound) and I had grip like mad. Didn't last too long and then the rear end started to slip out everywhere. Tires picked up all kinds of dirt. Also got tons of metal shavings from (?) on my motor can since they reconstruction of the 2nd level.

See u on Wed!

I noticed you have the Chassis Set with RA6 I.C.S.. Have you plugged it into a PC? I'm curious about "analyzing the effectiveness of different car settings on your computer using the graphical data from the ICS* unit mounted on the car"... what's that??? What info do you get from the ICS to analize / configure?

Thanks!
