Video: 100 mph brushless Team Associated RC8

Mike used a Castle Creations 2650kv on 6S a 25T pinion, custom fitted 34t spur gear, ofna foam tires and adjusted the suspension to reach these insane speeds.Mike had a couple comments about the run:
We had no need for the gyro, it go pretty straight the way we setup it.

The wing really have a role to play, run a buggy without wing and i guarantee you will lose control over 50mph, it will spin out. :)

We did changed the wing though, the stock RC8 wing had too much downforce and the buggy was lifting slowly the front end, we had no steering over 75mph lol and sometimes it was lifting slowly, that buggy is very controllable!

Its an ofna hi downforce wing that we have cut a part of the downforce...
just to have the right amount of downforce at 100mph.

We set the rear with a slight toe-in, barely, cant say the degree...i have no idea lol

we try to have the best contact with the road with the camber.
And the most important is to adjust them so its the same left and right, everything need to be very precise... if the car slightly pull left or right it will slow it down.
