55 degrees is nice! Our track is so cold you can see your breath. We usually stand around the heater right before the heat to try and warm the plastics

off the top of my head*

Tekin RSX with gen2 6.5 motor
250 firmware
minimum throttle: 2
minimum brake: 1
current limiter: 72%
brake power: 70 (brake is fine tuned on-the-fly using M12's dual rate function, I'm usually around 75-100% dual rate depending on grip level. less grip = lower D/R percentage)
deadband: 25
linear throttle curve
no boost
no timing
no expo
12 degrees fixed motor end bell timing (factory setting)

*I'll have to double check when I get home.

Schelle bearings are very good.

Have you guys found that better bearings will remove some slop compared to the stock ones?

doubtful. even crappy bearings dont have much play. Unless of course you blew up the bearing...then that is different

So I posted Sunday night that I was disappointed with the sway bars I made when I got to the races. The buggy seemed to be traction rolling much easier than the previous weeked when I practiced with it.

Somehow I had it in my head that I only changed the sway bars during the week but that isn't true. I actually increased my camber to about 2.5 (eyeballed) all the way around and I switched to the sworks s104 wing. Plus I shoe gooed the three body pieces together. Do you guys think the increased camber would have caused the buggy to traction roll more easily? What about adding weight up high by using the thicker wing and the shoe goo? Could that have been enough to make a noticeable in tendency to traction roll?

Increasing camber isn't going to result in more traction rolling. On carpet, I have seen a lot of people tire glue an even coat around the outside side wall of the front tires. This allows the tire to slide at extremes (through long sweepers especially) instead of completely folding over and jacking the car over. Thicker sway bars are going to plant the outside tire quicker in a corner. You could be folding the front tire over right away. You also want to run FIRM foams on carpet.

How is running 100,000k in the center calming anything down? I'm at 15/60k/2 and mine seem pretty good....3k may be better, my next tweak. Just curious because when I tried 100k it was a twitchy rear end happy car....on a medium bite track.
