Thanks Bud, I used to run my velineon with a fan and I could run bigger pinions and keep temps down

First timed run with the new truck last night. I dropped 0.7 off my pb (set with scte 1.0) in the first race which was the third pack through the truck. also I was a little more consistant as well. Only problem I had was that when I tried to push really hard I was having traction rolling issues when I got on power mid corner. Either I need to try something with the setup or change my driving style. I am using the stock shock setup (not the 2 hole 55's) although I went 30 with the oil because it get hot here. I will try the 55's or drop the oil to 27.5 to see if it helps.

Casper / hacker07 - any input in the diff wobble? Should we be concerned?

As for temps and run times, I'm running the castle mmp and 3800kv combo and 1 back on a high bite clay track (~18mins30second) my temps were 90f and 135f Esc/ motor. Got to say I'm loving the setup, nice and cool. And my run times are great and I'm using sky lipos 5000 mah 20c so they aren't even the best batteries.

I don't even think I could deal with anymore power... But I'm still tempted to pick up the pro4hd 4300 when it comes out just to have a smooth sensored setup.

Here some pics of the girl after the first track day.
Mmp w/ 3800kv 4pole 1410 castle motor
Hitech 7945sh servo
Skylipo 5000mah 2s 20c
OrangeRx micro rx
Jconcepts Pressure point tires

Was averaging about 18min run times on each pack, pretty please with that result
Went through a set of tires in 1 practice day haha!!! Gonna have to pick up a "practice" tire. I'm thinking medium caliber might be a good all around practice tire. Any suggestions for a tire to use on indoor clay that I won't eat through in 1 day!!

I've tried barcodes and though they hook up great I basically run them down in 1 practice day.

Here are some pics:







Also anyone running a rear skid? I def ate through some plastic and aluminum...

I will try the drag brake and will see what happen

Thanks again
Josh
Def, no drag brake and no timing of any kind with that motor.On an RX8 most run some current limiter as well to control heat. And 13 is fine at a small track like LRH....

You do not want to run a skid plate,it will skid way earlier than the chassis and not allow the proper ride ht. Chassis wear is gonna happen but it will last a long time even like that!!Cheers!

Lighter oil will make traction rolling worse.
I would try lowering ride height first, then stiffer sway bars, then stiffer springs and thicker oil. Reducing negative camber can also be a quick help.

How much rebound is needed for the shocks? and whats a good wight oil for the front and rear shocks was kinda thinking 35 for the front and 30 for the rear. and what about the springs use what comes with it?

We run the shocks emulsion style (no bladders) and basically no rebound. (a slight amount is fine). With stock pistons I would start with 27.5wt all around. Stock springs are a great starting point.

The kit setup works really well. You may want to tweak it some but I think most will agree it is quite good in most conditions with the correct tires for you track.

I found the kit setup to be REALLY good outdoors on semi low to medium bite and Dunford's setup on page one to be better indoor on medium to high bite.

Less of a positive 'expo' effect that the far outside hole gives you.. The inner hole makes steering more linear and direct, IMO.. That and the majority of the TLR factory guys run that, as well.
