General Info Edit

Similar to Sliding Damper Roller set, the main purposal of the this parts is to provide smooth cornering in circults with many S-style corners, as well as absorbing shocks while hitting the fences of the circuit.

The first advantage that the Sliding Damper Roller doesn't have is that, instead of attaching it to the bodyshell, it was attach to the rear handpoint of the chassis. This is ideal if the bodyshell cannot holds much stress.

The other advantage is that the rear stay also act as a brake for the minicar. There's the pair of the height-adjustable, rubber-based brake tubes to provide braking while on the sloped sections of the circuits. The brake tubes' height can be adjust depends on what wheels the minicar has.

Like any sliding damper sets, it comes with two springs; using the soft spring, the sliding damper's aluminum plate will slides upon collides with the fences. With the hard spring however, the sliding damper will behaves like the normal rear stays.

The set also comes with the ball diff grease, but the sliding damper's responsive rate can be adjust using the Sliding Damper Grease Set or the HG Sliding Damper Grease Set.
