+2 on yellow minipins (or for you stadium truck guys blue microspikes without insert with two to five rows cut on the inside and outside on the front tires).
I tried some PL wedge²/pinpoints on my 2WD, what a waste of time and money!
I hope your right the 2wd buggy class here is loaded, mod 4wd is baron.. so sad but not for much longer!

Ran the car again today, put a harder front spring on the front end, which helped. Also changed the front and rear roll center. The car is great!! Couple of the fast guys say the car rotates the best.

Funny you mention that...I've always set my cars up to rotate.....but Ty's dad Gord told me that they like their cars to round the corner....they don't want it to rotate because they feel it makes the car a bit less predictable and of course that makes it harder to go really fast consistently....

Moral of the story? From here on out I DON'T want my cars to rotate unless there is a track that absolutely requires it.

Post ur setup Jason. I've started the Ty OCRC Practice setup but now I'm incorporating his reedy race setup. Example ( front and rear dot setup, front spring). The car is getting better and better. Next I'm going to try 37.5 front and 32 rear shock oil.

Can someone post a link for the shock spreadsheet of all shocks and their ratings. Can't seem to find it in the threads.

Is this what you were looking for? Shows the HB springs and the Kyosho/Durango spring rate pages.

Medium to high traction you should run 100k. If you have a blown out track 60k might be helpful. But 100K should be the standard for most tracks no a days.

So far this car has been amazing!!!! Im running close to Ty's OCRC setup at OCRC....lol

Easy to drive and it goes where you want it to. If it gets out of whack you can correct very easily. What Ive always like about the car is that if the rearend comes around all you do is punch the throttle harder and it corrects. Cant say that about any other cars.

I have had a few top level drivers (cant say their names.... )take a test drive and love it. Most of them utter the words "cheating"

I have hit several things on the track with no damage to the car. I have clipped pipe going full speed into a corner and the car just bounces off and wants more. I have hit a 4wd (heavy) Short Course down the straight full throttle.....nothing!!!

Is that a good enough review.....

Allmost done with the build, only esc and motor to sort out, can´t wait to race it this sunday, very smooth build and the shocks and diffs are impressivly smooth. even my friend who helped me build the car, who have a rather strong biased towards english rc´s with a german sounding name gave his praises.

wish i could show you the awsome paintjob we put on it, but rctech don´t want noobs to post pictures, so you will have to just imagine a kicking rad buggy
