Alex Hagberg explains how to prep an RC car for racing in the rain. Many of the tips are relevant for all car classes (how to protect your radio equipment, ESC, wiring, and motor), but the setup tips (flex, camber, etc) are focused on on-road touring cars.
Everyone's favorite Aussie gearhead explains the fundamentals of weight transfer in racing and how it can be used to increase traction or change the front-to-rear relative traction while cornering. In Part 2, he covers roll center and how it contributes to cornering relative to shock springs and shock oil & pistons. A must watch for all tuners!
Ty walks us through how he builds ball diffs to get the best life from the diff and the most traction.
Max Mört takes us through these fundamental settings, and why they do what they do.
Max Mört goes in depth on anti-roll (sway) bars, explaining how they affect handling for off-road cars, how to choose thicker or thinner bars, how the anti-roll bar affects the car over jumps, how important it is in comparison with other settings, and how ARBs interact with your wheelbase and driveshaft choices.
This is the best explainer we've seen on roll center yet - check out these great videos from Max Mört that get into the racing physics of why roll center does what it does. He focuses on off-road, but the principles work across all types of racing. Oh, and get comfy and make some popcorn - these two videos clock in at over 27 minutes.
Max Mört gives a great, in-depth explanation of how wheelbase adjustments affect off-road RC cars and how to use it in your tuning to optimize weight transfer and turning ability.
