I always heard the opposite. Lol. I thought steering was more aggressive with the gullwing setup.

I run on high traction carpet. Feels really responsive initial turn in with the flat arms. Just saying, however been a while since I have ran the gull, so it might just be me getting used to it.

Messes up the steering geometry.

What weight shock oil is everyone running for high traction clay / carpet? (currently running Cav's 2015 National Setup) I am running 32.5 F/R. I didn't have any 27.5. Thoughts?

40f 35r. We run on high bite ozite. Ride heights around 17-18mm. Also i run the flat arms. 25 total caster and 2.5+3 rear. We have lots of traction. I feel the 3 anti-squat helps with on power stearing.

Default Tuning help needed

Hey guys,

I finally went to the track after a 28 year long vacation, ha. I bought a nice B5M used here on the forum and I love it but I need some help getting it dialed in. Here's some of the issues I'm having with some background info:

B5M, futaba 4pls, hobbywing justock esc, Reedy 13.5 motor, throttle trimmed to 75%, running indoor clay off-road, new proline m4 tires. Ride height set to 24 mm front and rear. Gearing 32 & 75. Shorty Lipo battery mounted all the way to rear.

1. Slipper clutch doesn't appear to slip. I have the nut almost fully backed out and it will still raise the front wheels when rear wheels held down on the bench.

2. When applying more than 1/2 throttle both rear wheels spin and car will spin out. Especially on starts. I'm thinking this is related to the slipper clutch.

3. Front end pushes (understeers) upon corner entry

Thanks!

I would take the slipper assembly apart and inspect everything closely. Tires and tire prep (compound, sanding, saucing, foams, etc) are critical to indoor racing. Find out what the fast guys are doing. I've seen new tires be basically un-driveable without proper prep. I can give you a good starting setup if you need it.

I'll take all the help I can get. I checked all the settings and they match team associated's setup sheet for indoor off-road. Could be the tires. I got the same tires that all the fast guys are using but didn't prep them. I just threw them on and had at it. I definitely need more driving experience but it would help if the car was a little more forgiving.

I would first check your diff screw and make sure its set right, then take out the slipper pads, if there is a sheen on them, use a emery board or sandpaper to clean them, also, check shock rebound/oil, if 1 shock is blown out it can cause all types of handling issues. Ohh, I run 22mm ride height on High Bite clay, I run the kit set-up with gulwing front end..

I had a friend help me check the diff and it needed tightening. I'll inspect the clutch plates when I get home tonight. Shocks are all good. Added new shock oil (what the fast guys were running).
