I recently ordered an Outclip DP conversion for a friend but it didn’t come with instructions…here’s a quick translation I did of one.

I’ve been very busy with the shop and Formula Drift last week so I haven’t been able to update my blog in a while. A lot has happened the past month or so…

Track Open!

GGT is open to the public now! Here’s a short teaser of my GRK RWD leading, and a friend’s DIB v2 chasing.

Looks like Wrap Up Next is coming out with their own spring set that supports low lever ratio suspension.

RC926 Super Soft Spring Set

RC926 is going to do a limited run of a spring set that is softer than their current softest offering. Since HRC’s spring set is very hard to get these are probably your next best option. A good set to have if you’re running a low lever ratio.

Blog Mascot Char

Flicky

I asked a friend of mine to design an image character for this blog since I’ve wanted one for quite a while now. Yeah, sure, it’s got nothing to do with RCs but I do want to be able to offer custom decal sheets for 10th scale drifters in the future though.

Thank you Austin! If you like the styling, you can check out his other stuff here: http://mischief.jp/

I plan to sell these online on the blog, but if you ever see me at a local track just let me know and I’ll give you one. I plan to print these out in a small enough size so that you can stick them onto your RC shell. I’m not sure what to call her since “Flicky” is sort of the blog name, but I’ll decide on all that later…

TN Racing DIB Conversion v3.0

03/03/2015 at 12:00 pm

Looks like TN Racing is planning to launch their v3.0 DIB conversion sometime in April for under $200. They’re only making a hundred so if you want one you should grab one quick.

I passed on the DIB monitor conversion kit but I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting the v3.

DIB Update

02/12/2015 at 1:51 am

The DIB was running well at Project G so I decided to tinker around with it a little bit. The the in lift (inside wheel shifts to positive camber and raises the car up) bothered me so I revised the front end a little bit. I used Wrap-Up Next upper arms to improve strength and to link the two sides. Currently damper less but I have no pitch in the front now, and the dampers will be used to control roll. Even with my revised included angle and increase camber shift from lock to lock, I get close to no in lift now.

I played around with the rear end as well, and settled on a swing axle type suspension setup. I wanted the car to slide a little bit more horizontally, and be able to full throttle while sideways.Swing Axle
