vendetta foams

I tried the purple rears and double purple fronts and it helped out alot. It still has alot of side bite but I put a bead of superglue along the sidewalls to let it slide some more. I beat the track record for the road course by two laps. I am running lap times close to the 12th scale stocks. I could get lower times if I had a speedo with brakes instead of reverse. I have to coast through the turns after the longer straights. I am going to get some foams with about 45 to 47 shore and put 70wt oil in the shocks. I am trying to get this thing to handle as good as my 12L4. If you guys are interested in running at our track go to TCRC Racing.com for some info. It is in Huntington WV. How much more power does the VR3 motor have compared to the stock one? Later. Oh by the way, the picture of the orange buggy looks exactly like mine. Sweet.

Good work. Isn't it neat to watch the guys with that POS RC18 when we do this stuff?
I ran mine again last night. I run an oval instead of road course. I am still running my 2154(pink) tires that were giving me so much traction roll last week. I ordered 2155(purple) tires they haven't got here yet. But I solved the side bite issues. I installed 70 weight oil in all shocks and put in a 1/4 inch shock limiter. This keeps it very low to the track, and it is very rigid I have only about 3/8 ground(carpet) clearance. Now it corners like on rails, the only time it traction rolls now is when I do something pretty stupid. I can come into turn 1(or3), lift off the throttle just momentarily, set it in the turn hit full throttle again and it just pulls on around the corner. get to the other end and do it again.
The little car was very fast, and I am still running the stock motor................ the RC 18 guys are all running to the hop-up parts counter. BWAHAHAHAHAHA

well im not a basher,, I do race..and if u knew anything,, racing on 10th scale tracks isnt easy,, especiallywhen racing against 10thscale vehicles.... my recent video I clearly state that "this is not to show my skill,, but to show what the NEU can do"

put up ur own review soothers wont have just my opinion on the matter.....

also not everyone is a member of all the forums.. some only go to a few.. while others may be loyal fans of just one.. and there are those that just dont know..

Once again this is a forum for discussion and not a place to belittle or put members down..... The reviews that Jae does is to let other members know how that product worked for him and how he liked it......He's clearly not telling members to go out and buy it.
