Thumbs up Yes Kick up

On bumpy track I like the 1's in the front , the car can handle the bump's really well.

I think you would consider this as a heavy setup.

Unfortunately we don`t have any indoor tracks near by so its all about outdoor.

Yes in addition to the pistons recomended in Adam Drake`s standard
outdoor setup i ordered all TLR oils from 40WT to 30WT.

I still don`t have an idea what "splits" pistons are ?
I understand that there are tapered pistons and pistons
which have holes with different diameters but i never heard of "splits".

@XXXDAD: My english skills are limited what exactly is 1`s ?
Im reading it on the setup sheet too ? "1's up and 1's down front pivot"
Are we talking about the Kickup inserts ?

Thanks

Regards

I even tried the silver rear spring vs. the green rear springs and definitely the green rear springs suit the ebuggy.
What were the track conditions you tried this setup on? Also what tire did you run so I can compare?

Nevermind, I just measured them. If anyone else cares to know, the mounting hole is slightly smaller so they would have to be drilled out. The diameter of the piston is slightly larger, .03-.05 larger.

We have tried them in the past. They don't work well with electric. It has to do with how the SD engages and how eletric motors are instant power. With a nitro motor and the clutch and everything they work better for nitro. You can try them but the work kind of funky in an electric application.

Just starting my build..Just finished the front end and I have one question. I'm building the car with Phends national setup on it and im confused about the pivot inserts. It says "1's up and 1's down front pivot" Does that mean 1's up in the front most hinge pin brace by the bumper, and 1's down on the other end? Or the other way around?

You are correct, 1`s up in the front most insert and 1`s down in the rear facing (inboard) insert. This will give you +2 Kickup.

This depends on your track and your Motor.

I will have to switch to a 16/43 (Gen2 T8 1900kv). Using the 15/43 i got up to 180F on the Motor housing (outside) and the RX8 Gen2 was completely cold. On my local track we have a straight with approx. 57 yds (53 meters).
I hope that i still have enough acceleration in the infield and that i can lower the Motor temperature down to about 160F by switching to the 16t pinion.

180 is still safe. Hot but safe.
