Nope, I actually ran an Ultraline Blind Speed 11x3. The track had a loose layer of dirt on the top so I decided to run the triple instead of a single or double. Dan from Ultraline recently gave me one of the new Blind Speed Checkpoint motors. These motors are excellent and have more power than a V2 (in my opinion). I think it was pulling the same lap times as the 1/8 scale buggies at the track we were at last week in Duluth. The X10 handles the rough tracks better than I had expected.
This is my setup currently:
stiffer than stock front springs (I don't have the spring pack yet, I now run losi green TC springs)
40 wt. Losi oil
.120 internal limiter
increase the length of the pushrod 1.5 mm.
3 washers on upper arm (stock camber)
60 wt. Losi oil
Middle hole on upper arm
no swaybar (makes the car feel loose, I might put it back on)
-2 or -1 degrees of camber
2 to 1 degrees of toe in (rear camber and toe make up most of my adjustments)
I have not ran on a hard packed clay track yet with the X10. I am hoping to go to Millwalkee and race at S&N Trackside the first weekend in November. They run slicks at this track, plus it is very small. So it will be a different experience for me.
I hope the setup helps!
