figured we had a thread for all the other classes and chassis might as well start a dnano specific thread too...

so to start things off here is a pic of the dnano i went with... waiting for a few hopup parts and will start posting pics of my setup...

anyone please feel free to chime in with their dnano experience....

Hey Junior, nice dNano that you picked up there. I got a McLaren dNano a few weeks back and I have continuely been upgrading it. I have the aluminum upper and lower plates, upgraded bearings, spring kit, aluminum wheel hubs, Kyosho Ball Diff, PN T-Paltes, PN Aluminum Wheels, and I have the 34T Spur gear with 7t pinion on there right now which I think I am going to change soon. I also have the X-Power Damper System on it. I also have the X-Speed Hot Motor. It is a lot of fun to mess around with. Enjoy the dNano experience :D

Hey Junior,

The dnano is pretty much like a tiny mro2. Most of the mm models run great of the box. They come with 10 rears and 50 fronts I think. The rears are good kyosho 40 fronts are great. Disk dampner is essential,the kyosho diff is good too. Bearings are nice as well.

i think mine is a rear mount.. havent taken it outta the box yet as last night i was throwing everything away that got damage by the water in my garage from this past storm...

and stay tuned for the exclusive dnano carpet track...

are you building your own or will you be getting the same carpet track HT USA has for dnano's?

does the selective opening of the dnano market also include the timing system (commerical, not home version)? or will HT USA remain the exlcusive club for racing on the racednano website?

cosmicsoul

Just in case you haven't already invested in a carpet track the RCP mini-96 is a great deal at $199.00 and ideal for these little cars. Carpet is good too, I just like RCP better.

The PN rims are really nice, you can get aluminumn hubs as well which are nice too. I haven't tried the PN or atomic T plates however the Kyosho mediums seem to work great. I am also using gold springs in the front. The front spring are super tiny.

These cars are alot of fun especially on ful size RCP they are superfast with the X speed motor. I hope the scale really takes off!

FYI, all the experiences communicated from dNaNo racers regarding carpet and felt (HTUSA tracks) are that the tiny hairs contaminate the bearings quickly and frequently. Save yourself a future headache and use a foam or rubber-plastic track.

My shop is currently using RCP for dNaNo. Again, I'd recommend foam instead of carpet (and I love carpet for R/C in general).

Another manufacturer for foam tracks is Porta-trax.

Additionally, take a look at RealTracks. They've got a different option for dNaNo (and mini-z too). It's a special rubber/plastic mix. Basically I'll describe it as slot car type track without the grooves.

Go the dNaNo forums to get some videos of ppl running stock cars on RealTracks, RCP and Porta-trax.

Congrats and welcome to the micro-world of dNaNo!

Hey Junior,
I have ordered some of the PN Tires but I have not had a chance to test them out yet. As soon as I get a chance to do some testing, I will give you my opinion on them. Also, here is a link to the Kyosho site that has some dNANO information that I think is very helpful. I hope this helps answer any questions that you may have.

Yeah, they are definitely fun to drive. Wait till you start adding all of the hop up options. You will be pleasantly surprised at how well the car handles. What pinion are you running on it right now?

Sinister_Y
2010.03.26, 09:24 AM
PN dNaNo tires are silicon based and follow the same values as the PN Mini-Z tires. So an 8 rear is the same as Mini-Z 8 rear.

The PN tires are wider than the stock Kyosho tires. Some like this, others not. I personally have so far stuck with stock Kyosho rear (which is 10 degrees) and now use a Kyosho 40 front. I was using PN 45. My car is the Motul Z. Note that I carry Atomic, PN and Kyosho tires at my shop, so I'll try them all out at some point.

Related to tires is what surface you'll be running on. The above is in reference to RCP track,however there are several track options available. My shop will be testing the RealTracks product shortly. Here is video of them running at HTUSA:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e9vS40ggbo

Most of the cars in that video are using box-stock setups including tires.

Here is an example on Realtracks with non-stock tires:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmoPaC-1anM

He is running the following:

-front silver spring soft / FA 40 degree tire
rear hard plate / RA 20 degree tire
ICS gyro setting Max

Hi Junior,

Best-sellers are by body choice, not by MM or RM (chassis config). Basically, people buy the car they like.

Right now, the touring cars are the best sellers.

For me personally, I picked the Motul Z 2007. It's looks cool, but really I picked it because it is MM and it has the same offset front and rear. I thought that this would make for a stable car.

re: RCP setup, check out the 'Tech tips" section of my site (link in my signature below). I have write ups on the Motul Z 2007 dNaNo. Also, someone much more knowledgeable on dNaNo is Q'on from Nanotrax.net, so check him out.

His shop doesn't use RCP, but does use foam, but setups maybe more applicable than what I will be using for RealTracks.

Hey Rob,
That guy's dNANO was extremely fast. I have no idea how to get my dNANO to go that fast either and stay so planted to the RCP. It is my understanding that depending on what size rear wheel you use depends upon the maximum size pinion you can use with a certain spur gear.

Here is a link to a nice Spur Gear/Pinion Gear combo that Olafius has put together. He is one of the local racers that races @ Nano Trax.

Nice Dnanos guys. Dont forget you need a Damper System, and a Gyro. The Gryro is very important to drive at this scale. I dont know what to saywith Ball bearings and Ball diff some say those are important also (I dont know I dont have those). I got a TRP Gyro from Maj and all I can say is it is the exact same thing has the Kyosho Dnano Gyro. Only difference is it does not have the KOPROPO sign on it and it has the same lenght wire has the Kyosho MR03 Gyro, which is nice because if you want you can use it for the MR03. All the settings and performance of the TRP Gyro are the same has the Kyosho one.

2010.11.07, 09:59 AM
Ive been driving my nano gyroless and as of right now I'm not 100 percent sure its completely necessary but I have a feeling that it will break down to this: if you want to leave your car stock the gyro will make it perform well however if you like to tinker I think with the proper mods you can get the car just as good and also know its all you and not the gyro doing it right.

need help, if anyone has ordered a new body and parts fitting kit then they likely have an extra set of front knuckle arms. they are the parts where the bearings go in on the front wheels and come in either a or b configuration. the difference is the offset of the pins and I need a set of the "a" config. if you are not sure what you have just let me know your original car and what you changed to and i can tell you if they were the same and you have an extra.

if anyone ever needs a part let me know because i have a lot of extras like upper and lower suspension plates, tie rods, "b" front knuckle arms, etc...

I love the Dnano's Great little cars. I have 7 of them, Enzo Red, Enzo White, Gallardo Yellow, Countach LP-500 Red, Mazda 787b Red/Green, Mazda 787b White/blue, 350Z Motul Red, I LOVE them all. I like the Mazda's best for large RCP tracks and I love my Gallardo for my home Rubber surface track.. the Lambo is the best handling car I have. I only have bearings and PN alloy wheels on all cars. I need the damper system bad!!

Dont forget my custom CNC Machined Carbon fiber wing kits I designed for the Enzo's and the Gallardo. Very tiny parts to make!! They fit perfect!!
I will do a few cars at a time!!

Hi There! I am glad you saw my HPI RS32 body swaps. All that is needed is a body with as close to a 81.5mm wheel base by 55.0 mm wide. If you can find a body that matches those dimensions it would be fairly easy to fit them.
Unfortunatly each body has it's own needs to custom fit them. I want to produce a kit that allows people to fit them to the body of choice but is difficult to do. I could provide the service to fit you body onto the car but I would need to figure a fair price for about 2 hours of work. I have the side mounts pretty much figured out but the front clip would have to be custom heat formed to the hood underside contour and glued in place. Let me know if you have bodies in mind and I can help. I am very glad you are going to race them as they are a perfect DURABLE platform to race...Nearly a perfect micro car as far as I am concerned and I have a lot of micro cars to compare to! Let me know if I can help. I have a full shop and CNC mill so I can pretty much make anything for these cars...

Thank you very much! I only made them for myself for now. I was not sure if someone would pay for them. I did not originally plan on selling them. Just more of show-and-tell thing.

I would love to build more wings, but cutting the Carbon Fiber is Killer on my cutters. I do not have the correct hi-speed head and a diamond Burr.....I am using a Carbide endmill in a low RPM motor and Carbon fiber kills the cutter in just a few passes....I only get a couple of wings and I throw away a $8.00 cutter!!!!:eek:
The mounts are plastic so those are easy....Perhaps I could make plastic wings instead of Carbon fiber? Any thoughts? The cost would be lower as well.

all plastic would work, it looks to be stronger than the ones that come on the body.

dnano racing was awesome last night... no shortage of laughs for sure... our boy scott form action is no doubt getting dialed in wit these little cars... i personally like the new layout with no straightaway as it slowed the lap times down and made for more infield passing oppurtunities and battles... cant wait till mon...

I am really having a blast with these little cars. I'm just sad its so early some of the boys(Danny,Kevin and Jamil) would love these things. That track keeps those car's planted. My only wish is junior would stop his after hour tuning sesions! Its only a rumor but I heard he goes in at 12-2am for personel practice:p

Glad to see Monday night Dnano is such a great success, I had no doubt it would be. Can't wait for next Monday!
