rallyart made a post in this thread: Gear Reduction from 1:1 to 1:1.46

rallyart made a post in this thread: Steering problem
The rudder may be tuned for running a slalom course. The shape is changed slightly to preload the rudder with tension one direction to keep the boat steady through the pylons. The other possibility id that the rudder is bent or that the tracking ...
