When it comes to nitro racing, it is crucial that your engine be setup properly. Part of that setup is setting throttle endpoints. Many overlook the importance of this step, and/or don’t actually know the proper way to do so. Our good friend Ryan Lutz has sat down to share his latest ‘Pro Tip’, which explains the proper way to set your throttle endpoint.
Um comentártio arrasador de Billy Easton face ao IFMAR Worlds 1/10 ETT
“Billy Easton All things aside… Take a look at the learning curve in the industry.. Why do average guys run stock.. Well, its slower and easier.. If you take a look at the direction in which electric offroad racing is heading, you will find, that the difficulty on these surfaces, whether sugared, astro or carpet are also increasing.. The speeds are greater, the crashes are more catastrophic, and the average guy has an even harder time dealing with these issues alone not to mention the increased costs. That can come at having to buy more cars to compete on a variety of surfaces, or more tires because they wear out too quickly.. Electric touring car is a classic example of, what happens when things get out of hand. The cars are too fast,tires last one run and are simply too hard to drive for the average guys, or better known as …” The customer”.. When this learning curve becomes too steep, due to the racing environment that we have created, that customer has a interest in the hobby life, less than 6 months. He thinks to himself.. wow, some of these guys have been doing this a long time, I have dumped tons of money and time into this, and quite frankly its not any fun. If you slow down the speeds, and reduce the costs, its more fun for everyone.. Maybe we will bring back families to the local tracks, and customers will stay in it longer.. The bottom line is, whether its the Organizing bodies, manufacturers, or even the racers, at some point,something has to give, and things need to go in a more positive direction where the hobby can grow.. The sheer fact that you have all these discussions, spread throughout the forums would indicate, that the members of this RC racing community are not united, and not happy.”
Estão disponíveis para encomenda os novos Kits da Shepherd Micro Racing com as mais recentes inovações para 2015.
Estas novas versões vem muito bem equipadas e combinam com a qualidade habitual da marca que recentemente lançou o seu 1º carro de todo o terreno e eléctrico de pista, ambos da escala 1/8.

bearing block which prevents it from twisting and keeps the belts always in a perfect straight line.
· “Tuning” radio plate mount for more solid radioplate mounting which results in increased stiffness, strength
and less wear on the radioplate.
· New smaller steering pivot balls and balljoints for less play and lower wear
· New carbon body mount plate design for more stable body support
· Hollowed lightweight 2-speed shaft to reduce weight and rotating mass about 30% resulting in an
