Hello All, first post, glad to be a member and thanks to Mike for helping me get on the site.

I have an MR-03 with the PN racing dampener and Alu motor frame mod (gold color)

I have brought a few shells which unfortunately do not fit as the dampener rubs on the shell. I wonder if anyone can suggest a good shell for MR-03W with this mod?

Thanks,

Ben.

Welcome to the forum.

What wheelbase are you running? If it is 98mm then I would highly recommend the Mosler body as it is the single most forgiving body that you can lay your hands on. They are quite sturdy and effective for both stock and modified competition. As a beginner you will want all the forgiveness you can get when it comes to rail riding. They come with the appropriate wheels and lend themselves well to do it yourself paint jobs. The Audi R-8 as well as the Honda HSV are also quite good but can be frustrating while you learn to drive in a straight line. They are equipped with protrusions that have an insatiable hunger for the rails. If you are running at 94mm then most of the Pasta Rockets(Ferrari's) will suit you nicely. The Corvette is a good choice as well as the NSX and Lexus. All of these bodies have adequate clearance in the cab area for most of the different damper arrangements.

Thanks for the tips! I managed to find the Honda HSV body in one of the local stores here, it fits like a glove and looks great. The shell over all seems well balanced and I was getting very consistent laps.

Here are a few shots.

the foward shock mount should be under the dds plate then adjusting the shock parallel to the chassis

Yasuji, your signature would suggest you are the man when it comes to PN racing parts, I wonder if you can help me out with another small issue.

The adjustable spring collar pictured below seems to have a habit of working its way loose (all the way to the end) after I adjust it. Any tips on solving this problem?

Thanks!

u can move the front shock mount to the front holes for greater adjustability
as far as the preload collar... what i do is add a small drop of ca on the treads and spin the collar up and down the treads creating a build up of ca causing it to have friction
and if it gets stuck during this process u can use a small squirt of contact cleaner to release the ca

I use a small drop of blue thread lock on it and work it a little losse after it dries. Never had mine move since doing that.

These are the softest and most sticky tires I have ever come across. I'm not sure on the make, I buy these at the track I visit. I will try and find out more.
