    Well, after some troubles with my fitaba 4pk and calibrating the castle sidewinder micro's, i went back to my trusted Tekin fx-r's.
    With some testing i destroyed a drivepin in the gearbox... Oops.. from underpowered to overpowered... lol.

    Pin was a easy fix, But i'm a little concerned about the drivepins at the hexes. As they are on the small side. There is not much pin in the hex to transfer the power...

    Well, soon it's time to find a nice spot here in the Netherlands to organize a comp of our own...
    But first we need to do some testing over there..

    I switched to Gunnar pins in my hexes, they are stronger and longer giving more engagement.

    Well, after being sick for some weeks.. I started working on the tires and the rear upper links.
    Got some nice narrow voodoo tires from Everett. With some custom narrow ci foams.

    Also made my rear upper a bit longer. Hope to get some magic wands as upper links in the future, that way it's easier to adjust the link length a bit. Now I need to make new ones.





    Wheels almost ready for the nordics now. Need to remove some worn boss claws from some cf rims.. Then mount a set of rovers. That way I have enough tires with me... Lol

    Last sunday i had a comp in Belgium.. I drove both my cars.. The sporty and the bully 2 (with protoype 3d printed wheels)
    I took the win in both classes.. Bully drove great.. I only need to practice a bit more in the pro class..
    Sporty was easy for me, as i know the car...

    Video of the sporty and some video's of two of my friends driving a bully 2 with a NCD chassis



    And a little on board video with the sporty
