My 511 - planning to take some pics of the inside sometime...

Also planning to make the extra-thick front damper stay, as I broke two of them at Worksop. I wasn't too kind to the car that Sunday!

My 501x Worlds Edition, that piece of foam(outa a novak box) I shoo gooed to the body is to allow air to pass through the body to cool the motor.
Due to the fact I'm running a Tekin R1 pro speed control and 362 brushless motor, it gets barley warm after a heat race. Stock gearing.
I re-built the rear diff so it's butter smooth again. Front one way.
I added an aluminum steering bridge/new front shock tower to the car recently(not pictured), looks like I'll have
a bit more steering this next big race next weekend.

Hey folks.

I paint my own shells and also do a few for the local drivers in Scotland.

If anyone has a specific design and wants it painted, send me a pm.

I'll do a no-obligation quote and can also provide any matching accessories, such as perspex pit boards, etc.

Belt roller is just a precaution really, these days (the 511 belts are tougher than the 501 ones were) the belts last a fair while, but I still find the rear goes before the front. The roller is just an attempt at evening up the life between the front/rear (It's off a tr415 I think!?)

Shocks on the rear are just something I'm trying to move some weight rearwards as I run so little ballast, plus I just find it much easier working on the shocks when they are back there!

One other bonus while running on flat indoor tracks, running them at the back lowers the car due to the antisquat, its super low touring style like this

+1 for shocks on the rear, I find the car much more stable due to moving the weight rearwards, without shortening wheelbase.
