Hi Guys,
My NSR Porshes and Corvettes do the Ninco hop. Had a close look at chassis/motor pod. Seems to be sa lot of flex in chassis. Anyone else notice this? Also do NSR make a stiffer chassis for these? Any help appreciated.

Rick

PS Im still after someone to paint 10 new cars into new liveries. PM if interested.

But we run those Porsches at Larkfield - you know the level of grip there is staggering because of all the rubber laid down on the track and yet we dont have ninco hop with them. Tipping yes, if the cars are not set up right.
Try running the body very loose and also slacken off the motor pod so it has quite a bit of movement. It seems counter-intuitive, but if you allow the whole thing to float it must soak up that energy as we don't see hop at all...

Tried that, it made it worse. Thats why I posted.

Noticed the NSRs come with shorter screws now. If you loosen them they can fall out. Think I need to buy longer screws too so I can try again.

BTW its a Scaley Sports track.

I was going to but under hard acceleration there is no motor slop at all. However will glue anyway. Thanks.

Thanks,
Yup I always glue n true. Voltage is 10V . I'm dropping past a nut and bolt engineering shop today so I'll see what they have on self tapered or try MB slot screws.

They're fast, Ive got an NSR Porsche here that goes 99% as hard as a Mosler. Now thats saying something. The motors seem very torquey. Even on 10V these things are deadly. I wonder if a smaller King, say a 18K is available? Now that would be nice on 12V for home tracks.
