Thanks!

As have been said, it will WORK, but my 40c GensAce seem unhappy as well.
I would shoot for something around 70c+ I have a feeling that will be a good result.

In JQ: Front - Lowering the front link on the tower will increase steering into the corner.

Not sure what to make of it. What is the correct answer; which is the more accurate setup guide?

Thanks.
The lower link will soften the front, numb out initial steering, but increase it mid turn in most cases (IMO). So they are both kind of right, but lacking some details. Don't forget the Hudy guide is for on-road, which is based on high grip and not sliding around on dirt. Quite a few things in the Hudy or XXX-Main guides won't transfer to off-road directly.

Hudy has an offroad tuning guide for there 8th scales which I think most are referencing here.

Check this out guys. This gives an excellent representation of what raising (lowering roll center) and lowering (raising the roll center) the camber link mounting point does to the interaction between suspension and chassis. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWdRQaz_Xq8

I believe that there is more actual camber gain to be had by changing the link length as opposed to the inner mounting height, although I haven't tested this or checked it in my CAD mockup. I might have to do some actual measurements this evening.

I have searched this thread up one side and down the other and found the question asked but no responce along with no starting point in the manual or in build tips. Here it goes and hope for the best.....

But what is the measurement from center to center on the shock for front and rear. I am a strong armed person and is well known for overtighting things especially plastic. If I know the starting point I can do the rest. Right now the shocks sit at 89mm ft and 105mm rear.

Thanks,

That sounds about right. Now back off the eyelets from there for extra droop if you are using the latest Dunford setup.

SCTE 2.0 on carpet

I'm learning carpet.

I had lots of roll issues when I started. Almost needed training wheels!

So far, shocks all in on towers, all out on arms. 30F/27.5R oil. Black front, silver rear. Still rolled.

Then I focused on sway bar. I'm at 2.4 front. Still not tight enough. Once I went 2.0 back it felt really good.

Diffs are 5/15/3. Might try 7 in the front.

Droop is critical. Work on this all by itself. Test, adjust and test some more. Really amazing its effects and often overlooked. I tried all in to all out. For me, I went all in and then turned them back 3 threads. Just spending time on this allowed speed into turns without rolling (after the above was done).

Curious what other people think of this or what else I could try that works for you

What's your setup including pistons/oil/springs and ride height?

Make sure your suspension is not binding and that your down travel is ok for the surface you are running it on.

Then either turn down the drag brake or keep the throttle on

or

Make the ride height in the front higher if you don't mind changing the handling of the truck some.

The truck does not naturally jump nose down, being its 4wd, the drivetrain and how power is or is not used will drastically affect the attitude of the truck in the air.

Battery - Mid Position
Shock Oil - 30wt
Shock Pistons - MIP #7 bypass w/white valve (compression softer than rebound)
Springs - Kit
Ride height - approx 3/4-1"

Tried battery back, but didn't have much of an effect.

Suspension articulates freely and the shocks are limiting down travel.

I don't use drag brake. Keeping throttle on during flight didn't seem to do much. I did try adjusting ride height, but I think I was sprung too lightly.
I would have tried a stiffer front spring, but I left them at home...
