Is your rear end planted?

For the most part, yeah. I think the rear kick up is the reason though. I run the 4 bump spacer under the FR toe block and the 2 bump spacer under the RR block. I saw it on someone's setup and just tried it and really liked it. It keeps the back end from snapping out and I can drive the car hard without feeling like the car is going to loop out.

Damn that's a lot lol. Isn't that the same as running 0/2?

I would do a few things differently but they would be for my track and my driving style. Red front springs, move the hubs back 1 or 2 mm's. I liked the yellow fronts too but the Reds were similar feeing but added a little more steering. The only other thing may be to narrow up the front track width and go with c in/c in. You'll have to test these out a bit to see what you like but this is where I would start.

Yeah I know but whatever the reason, it felt good. i saw it that way on someone else's setup sheet. Had similar issues with the back being "snappy" and it helped.

I would assume it is the same as 2 bump in the RR only. Try it out and let us know. I never messed with it after I was happy.

I'll try it. I think I do like the higher rear pivot like in 2w.

Elliot Boots runs that setup with the 4/2. He also makes comments about having to shave some parts. I think its on petitrc if you wantnto look at his comments.

This is my setup, when they change the layout at RC Excitement it really helps the car turn and be free. Its really twitchy as traction comes up.

I have my cars set for turf for this weekends turf nationals and will be posting those setups too if they are any good. If you go the race this weekend at RC Madness swing by and say hi.

My RB6 was really good the one time i drove it on turf if you have that car and looking for a setup for that too on turf.

I'm heading to RC Excitement within the next week or so and I'm changing my 4wd completely. I'll post my setup after I run.
