More OFNA goodness

I bought a pair of 3S batteries for this car to bring the power up to 22.2 volts on 6S.
With the stock gear ratio it goes about the right speed for this track, but this car has a major problem. Tires.
There are not many tires available for these cars unless you want to pay almost half the cost of the rolling chassis for a set of Sweeps or Inpanema (spell) tires.

I blew out one of the stock tires after the second run. So now I have a set of tires on there which only cost $20 shipped. They are only cheap Chinese junk, but haven’t worn much after the first run in this video. I helped them out strength wise a little by putting Gaff tape on the inside. However, they appear to have very weak sidewalls as there are already splits in them.
These are the tires.

Here is the video I took today.

Gopro Hero on my head as I drive.

Thanks for looking.

Driving yesterday 29th April

Took a bunch of cars to my local track and drove around for about 3 hours.

took the DM-1 Spec E now with 6S and 17T pinion. It took off on the straight, literally. So I dropped it back to the 13T for this track and it works well. Tyres are a problem. The other problem was that I was so excited to drive it I forgot to video it… DUH.

Though, here is a video collection of the other cars I drove.
Enjoy.
It’s just driving with no music, add your own.

A little Drifting vid 岡山

I’ve put the TB-03 VDS back to stock in the rear diff. So it’s running 50/50 now.
Took it down to the track to play around and make a little video.

one camera, lots of driving and a little editing later brings this to the table.
the camera is a GOPRO HD hero.

Drift Diffuser

Was a little bored tonight watching an old movie on TV and decided to have a go at knocking up a diffuser for the rear of the drift car…

take one plastic A4 folder

cut it up in a fashion that would make it look like something you have an image of in your mind…

Glue it together with super glue.

then test fit on the car…

Later comes paint and finishing.
the sides I just bent into shape.

It’s really easy to make stuff! And fun

Interesting camera mount

made up a mount for the GOPRO to make some cool images of the drifter.

made from a TL-01 front upright and axle, a long piece of wood and two old batteries for counter balance weight.

here are a couple of pics and a video test footage.

More TB-03 VDS action

This video I shot yesterday, sorry about the editing, it’s my first time and I probably over did it…

I’m now using the 200% gears in the rear end, which makes for a lot of spinning and a rear end that just wants to go first. Oh, it also means the tyres get worn down VERY quickly…

anyway, take a look!

TB-03 VDS drifting video

Finally, after three days straight of rain, I was able to test drive the new VDS.
Driving with the Active 1.5 CS means it’s a new experience and a steeper learning curve.

Sad part is, the Active 1.5 decided to fall apart inside, LOC-TITE the screws people! and chewed up the smaller input gear. So now it has an Active 2.0CS in it.
So tomorrow will be another lesson in driving with the 2.0CS.

Counter steer drift means the rear wheels turn faster than the front, forcing the car to want to push the rear out.
I’m still messing around and will likely take the spool out of the front and put in a ball-diff.

Anyways, take a look at some of the highlights of testing yesterday.
