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

Sunday Driving

Went to the local free track again today to try out the new drifter, drive the F1 car and a couple of other cars.

Points of the day:
There was a good group down there, including a couple of helicopter pilots.
The CS in the rear of the TB03VDS is not that fun… I think I’ll go back to 50/50 for a while…

Here are a couple vids I took.

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.

TB-03 VDS Build

Got my VDS yesterday and starting building it immediately. Here is a slideshow of some of the pictures I took.

The build was great, I spent about 3 hours last night getting it to rolling chassis with no shocks. Then built the shocks today.

I fit thin plastic sheet as a bladder valve under the piston inside the shock, which gives fast bump/slow rebound.

This is actually the first time I have built a carbon chassis car from scratch and must say it was interesting.

I also fitted an Active-hobby Counter unit in the rear, currently it has a 150% gearing, but I also have the 200% gears in spares. The counter unit in the rear means I had to modify the inside of the diff case, which took the most time last night.

This chassis will be my new drift cars and as such has the Street Jam tyres mounted on +10 offset wheels and an HPI Toyota Mark 2 Weld X 200mm body.
