i have seen alot of these converted to rear wheel.. and so far they are the best i have seen.. i have one also, but currently CS only.. i see you got the non inline battery which makes better sense for RWD.. for weight to the rear.. great job seems very stable.. i linked up the vid for you.. hehe..

Thanks! Yes, the kit is very stable now compared to when I drove it without gyro. Can't wait to hit the track!

I need more speed though.

what FDR you are running?? I heard changing the FDR will help with speed, but then heat would be your problem..

I'm running a Xerun 10.5T BL combo and my fdr is at 4.42. I think I'll need to add more weight to maximize the grip. As of this video, I'm only at 1.6kg running on R2 Threaded tires.

oh ok.. what kind of weights? i was thinking of putting fishing weights to help.. but i dont know where to get some here.. lots of things i need and want but cant find it here.. maybe running some more soft compounds in the rear will help.. i converted my d3 to red without a gyro and i was doing ok.. but thats without any suspension setups or weight tuning... but tomorrow i will try some more setups...

I always put on those maleable tin weights(commonly named tingga locally) that you can buy at hardware stores. It can be shaped into almost anything you want. hehe

My concern is, the track I run at locally is very dusty. For years I have tried adding weights to get more speed. With good success at asphalt and clean tile/marble surfaces or even those painted surfaces but never had experienced success on a dusty smooth concrete.

I wonder if anyone else has my same finding. Perhaps running with softer compounds may be the only option I have for R66 track. But I was hoping I could keep my tire choice limited to hard drift tires.

First day of track. It handled differently. I was constantly battling with too much angle or the gyro correcting too much. Still need practice. But it was seriously fun to drive albeit the few short comings.



I lowered gyro gain sensitivity from 70, down to 55 at that time but now have it at 50. Maybe when I get better I'll lower the gain more.

Switched knuckle arms to MST knuckles. There's a good improvement on steering stability and response. Kinda handles closer and closer to a CS kit.

But we'll see this wednesday when I hit the track again. =L
