I haven’t been posting lately due to other obligations in school and work. Spring Break is next week and couldn’t have come sooner. I won’t be doing anything fun other than spending time with my family and going to Thunder R/C carpet track in Nashville,TN. I’m very excited as this will be my first out of state race. I am excited to see how I perform compared to other racers I do not normally race with. The track is reportedly large but bumpy. Since Nexus Racing is rather small, low traction, and technical, this should be a nice change. I have not been able to test the KO speedo with 13.5 motor so this will be an eye-opening experience. For starters, I need to get the car back to what it was with the 17.5 in terms of balance throughout the corner. With the 13.5 last weekend, the car was too twitchy and the tire overheated towards the end of the run. To remedy this, I will try the following:
1. Adjust roll center to regain a balance in the car
2. Front kick up
3. Front sway bar
4. shock positions
I can’t wait to be able to hang out with some of my friends and make some new friends in Nashville!
