We have a local distributor for skyrc. I'd does up to 2000grams per scale. I paid 120$ for it.

I copied this setup to my sons and mine E 3.0's, as we drive on somewhat similar tracks as the Fear Farm Raceway.

I can't see which kind of track you are running on, so don't know if this setup is relevant. Anyway:

We have changed the shock oils to 45F/40R, as this suits our particular track better.

I'm not a pro racer and I have just started experimenting with setup, so please take my advise with "caution".

I made another change to my car, because I think i did not have enough (or fast enough) initial steering going into tight 180 degree turns, which there are some of on our track.

There are probably tons of combinations of setup changes to gain more off power steering, but I didn't want to mess up the whole setup, so i tried to install the short ackerman link, which gives a more aggressive initial steering, so the car turns faster into the tight turns.

So for now, I have used the short ackerman link to gain some more off power steering, so that the car much more nimbly snaps around those 180 degree turns while still being sufficiently stable not to become "twitchy" in other parts.
Thanks for the link and input. I have seen that set up.

And the great part is that I hardly had to do anything. Losi has done there homework....
Having a balance car does wonder for stability and track consistency. I'm loving these cars.

I'm currently running the 3.0 truggy (rear) boots all the way around on my 3.0 buggy. Works like a charm! Make sure you use the rear boots all around as they are long enough to do the job. Slide the boot completely over the shock end and let it rest on the shock shaft. It will not tear or ever balloon up. The tips of the boots are made differently than the buggies and they are thicker.

They have new boots out for the buggy that are the same style as the truggy. They work great!

Well I got the CSI boots and I didn't like them either. I guess I will try the truggy ones. Do ya have a link?

I did 3 packs tonight and the set up is getting better. Like symmetricon posted. Same shock oils rock! Red csi pistons with TLR 32.5 were good on a dry dusty track. I'm looking forward to Friday night when the track is prep'd. And I am going to test the short akerman as well. Still chasing some off power steering. Some great input from you guys I appreciate it. Its been a nice short cut to get this baby dialed in.

Are you looking for off power turning in tight 180 sections? The roar nats layout had some and Dakota opted to run the front camber link shorter. I tried it and it definitely helped the car rotate more mid and exit steering. It did however make it push a little through the sweeper. However, I have not tried the short akerman, keep us posted on how it works for you....
