Hi, im relatively new to mini 4wd. Used to love it as a kid and now I'm trying to make a more competitive comeback.

I just went to the HK race the other day and realized how slow I was compared to everyone.

I have two questions though.

How do you reduce friction when going through turns, and

How do I make my motor churn out more power because I was using the same motor as everyone else and my car was at least 5 seconds slower than everyone.

Here is my car:

try to clean your bearings
take out that sliding bumper at the rear and you will be faster than before
u can also look for kenjian to ask about car setting by the way he is my friend and a hk racer

will be having ah ma from hkm4a to race here this sat too

Thanks so much David! I'm going to try that right now.

I thought using the sliding bumper would help me be faster on turns.

I was also wondering why my cars power didn't seem as fast compared to everyone elses. 5 seconds is a lot of time even thought I'm still relatively new. And I was 10 seconds off from the winner too. Average was about 22 seconds and I had 27.

Would it be the battery?

try the 2 thing i mention first see what u got then go on from there

David, thank you so much for your advice last time. And Szng too.

My car went so much faster, it was rather scary to be honest. I cleaned out my bearings and I took out the sliding damper and poof. So much better.

I was wondering. Now that the performance of the parts are better, how do I bring out the best in my motor?
*
try play around with diff types of bearings first and see what results it made
u can try 830 , 950 . 8-9mm wa ,12-13mm wa 19mm
try playing with roller positioning
and i think those are the basic stuff that you need to master before going to more complicated things as bringing out the potential of the motor
the cover also plays a big part in speed and stability
so there are many things for you to try out and study
try to make notes of the changes that you make to your car and the outcome of doing so
then maybe a problem arise you will know how to solve it by looking at the notes that you have made

trail and error is very important
your skill will grow from there and you can be better

sotong tires are defenitely for speed. look at all top 3 winners there.huhu.
it all depends on how good/precise we make dat tires actually matters.  hmm.gif

anybody got machine to cut2 tires into super-precise-sotong tire?share-share lah...hehehe
*
well to do all the cars you need a lot of trail and errors
same as the tires you keep cutting till you get it right

these setups are not as easy as it seams

hard work
dedication
concentration
never say die
and the most important of all is discipline

so for the guys who is interested in ng project please be prepared
