This is just a refinement of that set up...

No , not a miracle .

Started as a idea, tested sense last Thursday.
Personally race twice with already.
I call that dedicated team work myself.


What's made Wild so pumped to be so excited to tell everyone about ?

B5r Hard flat arm
B5m front shock tower
Shock
1.4x3 flat piston,35w, 4mm limiter, 18mm stroke , Ae green spring..

Shock position = inside on tower & out side on arm

What to expect if you try.

Smoother handling & steering
More over all steering , car finish's sharp corner better.

will perform the same for anyone , anywhere..
4th in your area as we have run this combo since the stock nats. Hartson was the only one to beat it ;-)

Here's what annoys people....

It's not that you give your opinion and help. It's that you are always telling everyone that you're 100% correct and it works everywhere no matter what. Nothing in any form of racing at any level is 100% correct and works everywhere for everyone. The fact is that your setups, everyone you've ever posted, do NOT work on any track I race on. It's just too much of a difference in surfaces, temps, traction, layout types. Hand me Hara, Tessman, Cav, Mans radios and I can pretty much guaranty you that I wouldn't feel comfortable with most of their stuff.

If you presented your setup help and advice and said something like this, you would rarely have anyone complain. This is what we found to work on tracks like this. If your track is similar, give it a try. If your track is different and you try it but have to change the setup, post up what you changed as it might help someone else.

If you disagree, then that pretty much shows everyone you are just trolling and inviting the negative comments. So take this as constructive criticism, not a flame or bash fest. Keep helping people, but take a step back and realize that nothing in racing is black and white (except P1 Brand!)

Yep I can say that west coast setups do not work in the east coast for crap. That's why you need to find your own setup.

Well It's nice to see nothing has changed on these boards!! Sheesh People!

These Posts are educated opinions or questions based on the persons belief and/or expierence. Your results may vary!!!

So with that being said, no need for the constructive criticism. Try the set-up, if you don't like it, then it didn't work for you and move on.

Off my soap box now!

The reviews and/or opinions expressed in this post, do not endorse, represent any person or company! lol

Good to hear! I'd rather get that titanium set instead of the aluminum set from AE. My concern is that the aluminum screws will strip easily and/or be easily damaged when the chassis bottoms or in a crash.

jato.. yes the strc stuff is good..

And I know WC comes across the wrong way sometimes but he does mean well... But what works at one track does not work at all tracks. NW included.. if you do race on a track similar to Tacoma its worth a shot to try the setup. Hey its worth it to try at your track just so you know what it does with the car.

I have found the best way to get setups at track you don't race on usually is to go find the fastest guys and talk to them about whats working at their track.

If you are a good tuner you can show up at a track and look at it and get a good idea to where you will need to start. Usually once you find YOUR ideal setup as its usually different for everyone.. then from track to track its not going to change a great deal.

A tip is to keep a little book of notes if you travel as to what works where.. that way if your traveling to another track you can prep your car before you go and fine tune once your there.

Trcr is med traction indoor clay

Not unlike most tracks .

Advise not think your track is any different...



Barry, not going to discuss your problems , no one cares ....


All I done us share what some of our best
Ae drivers in the N/w are doing in the pits.

Braaaaa.

If you don't have a good tip to share , don't bash someone because of please. Bring something of your own and build some creditability , set a good example.

Only thing that bothers me is new people to this hobby will listen the WC thinking he knows what he is talking about, when he posts for months about set ups on a car he doesn't even own. He's already started on the 44.3 thread after he says he's not buying the car. Ha ha!

Unfortunately for him liverc shows his results he's not even fast on his home track. The good news is that he made the podium last week in a race of 3 cars. I'll let u guess what place he finished...

See this is my point. Not sure if you are just getting too old and senile or if there's a language barrier here or what. I made a point saying that the reason you take a lot of heat is that you always come off as it's my way or the highway. That's simply not right. Everyone is different. The fact that you help people is pretty awesome. You just have to understand that we all don't run on your track(s). So before you say that I attacked your credibility or bashed you, go back and re-read my statement.

After giving it more thought, there has to be a language barrier thing going on. There's no way that anyone here could misinterpret that.

Btw, you have posted many videos of your track. You claim that's medium grip. In our area here, that would be considered super high bite. Not high bite, but super high bite. So again... it's all relative.

The Ae blue screws are pretty good.

Just saying they have been holding up rather well for me so far.
