Team azarashi redseal prototype

5 posts in this topic

I don't get much runtime on winter. I booked to a local race and that was basically the first run of the car. As expected I had much details to iron out, but the Redseal ran really well, allowing me to get into the A final for the first time in a long period, apart from my home track.:thumbsup:

It was an indoor track with a slipperish carpet and some turns on the naked gym floor.

Here are some mods I made:

With the FS car it was sometimes a problem to get the rear of the car as low as you would want, and it's only getting worse with the much lighter Redseal. So I fitted AE big bore spring cups on the rear, the lowest ones.


I cut the undertray to fit it on top of the chassis, mainly for a clean look :lol:



I made a small notch under the motor mount to route the esc-rx wire. Hard to see but anyway...


When using an aftermarket ackermann link, with an extreme setup it becomes really easy to pop out the inner ball stud. I tried to do a captured design with Kyosho parts, it seems to work :rolleyes:


Setup-wise, I started with the Asarashi astro setup but I moved to more FS-like setups, with a higher roll center and more antisquat on the rear. I also started with a 7.5 motor, I will try a 6.5.

As for the pistons, 4x1.3 have too much damping. I fitted 3x1.5 on front (40WT) and 3x1.6 on rear (35WT) (or was it 3x1.6 and 3x1.7? Will check that), AE tapered pistons, on the bench it feels really good.
