Did you notice a big diff in corner entry steering when you reduced weight? Wonder how things would be at just under 1500g?

The kit comes with plastic mounts, the aluminum mounts (and inserts) are needed if you want to go to 0 anti squat. They make it alot easier to adjust anti squat as well.

did you corner scale the car first? if you made the usual weight savings adjustments that everyone thinks they need to do then you're f/r static weight bias might be a bit off for the spring rates you were originally using.

@ the track

Traction is rather high even for Trcr, ghost's or even slicks are performing well...


So for tonight's club race going to take a leap with the setup.

Moving rear chassis camber stud to out side position

Switching to 2.5 /1 toe block...

Easy Off oven cleaner. Spray it on, let is sit for a bit and wipe off.
Play around with how long you leave it on. I would start with a fairly short time .

Unfortunately made the mistake of going straight to lightening without running the car box stock first, so I don't have a good feel for how it 'was'. But yes, agree, plan is to make some adjustments to battery placement, springs and shock setup tomorrow. Feel everything else should be set.

I need to play with shock set up too. Need to lighten up shocks and springs since car is about 100 grams lighter then when I started. Thinking of dropping 2.5 to 5 weight all around and going down one spring rate from stock set up....don't know if that sounds right.

Works like a charm however it wont remove the blue from the turnbuckle.

Firs time out with the car today, wow A LOT better then the B5. Car was hooked up until the main then the traction was gone for some reason. (everyone was loose) One thing is for sure once this car get's loose it's a handful.

Dont know how you guys are so light, I'm sitting at 1620 with reedy 17.5, Savox 1257, Racers Edge Shorty, LRP SXX, Schelle slipper.

For me first shot is battery, going to move forward about 1-2 sm pads to deal with all the weight I took out of the back. Next will be 1 down on rear springs if that doesn't do it. Saving oils for last as I think I'm already a bit on the thin side

Several others running as light or even lighter than I am at ocrc, so also going to take a look around for comparison sake tomorrow.

Ah the fun of trying to tune a new car.

Car handle the extra grip very well.
The outer rear camber stud really surprised me just how good it performed.

2.5/1 helped the car feel much smoother for the slicks I had to use tonight.

I'm not sure what your track is like , if you have good traction you need to go inline.

The car drives so much better, the kit setup cannot even compare.

Each time I let another racer try my ride they start grinding right after .

No longer telling others to try or test the inline..
Advising & telling them to just do it ..

Weighed my car this morning and it's a real pig. 1671 grams. Looks like if I were to go to a shorty I would loose 70g plus if I move the ESC back into the battery brace another 10g or so? Man, I'm not sure how you guys get your cars so light!

most of them are using the 150gram super light shorty. That saves you 50-70g grams over a normal shorty. Then Pucks, alum topshaft, alum pinion, alum screws, shorty servo, slipper eliminator, Ti turnbuckles, Ti front axles and so on. A shorty servo is about 20 grams lighter than a full servo.
