I'd start at 35 front and 30 rear and see how that feels. Depending on how responsive you like the car to feel you may want to go up or down.

Hey guys chassis just came back from hard coating. I believe I PM'd everyone that had a deposit. If I missed you please pm me again. I will start shipping out after remaining balance is paid. Thanks again for your patience. I included some pics. The last two are of my +10 with the +8 body. Just elongated the body post holes a bit.

Just installed the alloy camberlink mount on my 210 in mid motor format. Not Sure if this is how it is suppose to be done but after a bit of dremel work to remove the existing broken link position and a little off the back, it now sits in the exact same position as the original ball stud. please comment if this was the right way to do it or not as i am curious if it is done any other way.





Quick question to the setup guru's. Because it now has 3 inner ballstud positions what would happen to the handling if i was to keep the camber link the same length but move it out 1 hole on the inner and outer camber link positions?

It is supposed to sit above the tab like so

3mm under the camber link mount and 3mm under the ball stud(facing downwards) gives the stock location, if I remember correctly

Although I do like the fact the ballstuds are facing up on my method.

i have mine rm3 with 2mm under and im at stock with that ballstuds facing up also, a shorter camber link means more gain so the more your camber moves through the up and down motion of the wheel all the way extended you can have 0 degrees and when sitting at ride height it will be 2 and chassis bottomed out 4 it will help for traction in the corners but to much and it wont let the rear break loose and will traction roll easier

I ran MM4 on slick-mid grip clay and just switched to RM4. MM4 I had a decent setup and positioned best ae 3rd or 4th in 17.5 class. I lost a lot of responsiveness getting enough traction to the rear though, it kept unloading too quickly and required keeping on the gas through turns. Not to say some workup on suspension wouldnt have helped but I figured Id try rear motor before I went crazy to see the difference.

balance is amazing though, even when it breaks free it was very easy to control, just lost time when it did.
