Re: Why asymetric steering bellcranks?

I think Gil was drunk when he sketched it out and no one noticed. Good a theory as any. :D :D

Re: Ultima Duratrax Graphite Chassis or Kyosho?

Kyosho chassis is 20 degrees on Pro XL, Duratrax is 30 degrees confirmed.

Is there anyone that disagrees or forever hold your peace?

Oh yes, rules, I forget about them sometimes given my local tracks lack of tech and rampant cheating.

Re: Ultima Duratrax Graphite Chassis or Kyosho?

Here it is next to an Ultima II Kelron and Trinity chassis. Clearly has more kick up in front. I don't have a protractor but I think 30 vs others at 20?

Re: 1989 IFMAR Joel Johnson Ultima ?'s

Interesting, wonder why he chose Andy's arm front and not Pro Xl given they are a tad longer. At any rate, I found these pics in February 1990 RC Car Action. Not much, but something more.

Re: 1989 IFMAR Joel Johnson Ultima ?'s

Yes, they are Andy's, of course I had a set in my drawer and didn't make the connection. What about the rear arms?

In that arm pic you linked, far left to right (JRXT RPM?), Pro XL, Andy's, Turbo Ultima, Ultima. Did I get that right?

1989 IFMAR Joel Johnson Ultima ?'s

I've found plenty on his 1987 World's car but can't find anything on the car here he used in 1989. Is there a thread or info? I clearly see Losi wheels, custom shock towers, looks like custom A-arms, not sure if those are Triumph or Pro XL etc..? One off chassis perhaps, looks like Ultima meets Triu...

Re: Optima Mid Runner Budget Build

I read that Lazer ZX CVDs will work as well with minor shim on inner hub. LA245. I have not tried myself to confirm.
