      If it races again yes, definately. It's probably a car length or 2 slower than you amazing #21 or DRW21 #35 Mclaren, but it's better than it was. It ran 5.6 at the River Run which is a track I use for all my comparisons, in 2016 it ran 6 flat. I think it will run 5.5-5.4 now at RR. I just realized this chassis, car, parts is over 6 years old. I think I have 3x the cost new in it. It's like maintaining a Ferrari

    Always a good thing when you are moving forward. Like trying to get my Porsche 911 to stop wanting to roll over. Went to a shorter front tire but if you push it, will still roll on you. Tomorrow I'll see if changing the gear ratio which should also give it more brakes will make a difference. If I can't get it to run with the Ferrari I may have to dump the Policar motor or just go with the Vette.

      What's a good treatment for a tendency to rollover? I would think adding weight to the front half of the car and as low as possible. What about guide depth in the slot?

        I added a deep Sloting Plus guide to it. I have put weight in the front and under the front half of the chassis. The thing is it is now to slow. A gear change may help. It is the Policar 25K motor currently geared 3:1. I have read it needs to be geared closer to 3.50:1. So I'll keep playing with the weight and do the gear change.

      Try weight on the sides like your Huracan.

        Try more weight down low in the chassis; the 911 is, generally, a narrow track, high CoG car, so lower the CoG. and set it up with some drift to it.

          Allan, Brumos
          It may be more the National Racer 3D chassis. It tends to roll/flip with no body. I will try all suggestions with the body off and go from there. The best 20 lap time I could get was 1 min. This is 4 secs off the pace of the Ferrari. Just trying to improve on last years performance. I feel the Italian Stallion will be up to the task.
