Its centro chassis and rear suspension with RB6 front set up/ suspension. I know a guy who knows a guy who was told by a guy. One of the racers at our track is pretty close to him and showed me and my son at last years Reedy Race. Pretty sic car actually.

Looking at the Reedy setup which HB springs are equal to XGear Yellow (F) & White (R)?
Going to put in a bit of a tuning parts order and need to know which springs to grab up.

Gold rear, red front. This is going off the actual measured spring rate of Kyosho springs.

Thanks in advance,

My car was really off ballance on scales set up with the standard shorty set up. I redid the car with the servo on the left and the speedo on the left rear with 14 g. Of weight on the right front and now the car is very close to being equal left to right (withinin 5g.), and its 200g. Heavier in the rear over the front. The cross weight was off by 100g. Before I made the changes and now its even.
I have not driven it like this yet but I have high hopes the car will be even better.

Don't know if this has been posted before, but for those of you who are cheap like me and don't want to fork out the $ for an upgraded steering rack, here's what I did: Grabbed a couple standard 4X8X3 bearings I had kickin' around. Drilled out the bushing holes in the rack to accept the bearings. Slipped the bearings in with a .5 mm spacer on top and bolted it back together. Result is just about zero steering slop.

If possible, I'd like to see some pictures of what you did please. Sounds simple. But I'd like to understand better what you did. Thanks in advance!

You do now. You need 10 posts, and you are at 11 now. Go ahead and put them up.
