washing balls, checking droop. When did this turn into a physical?

Cpt.Americas post raises some questions. But for myself and everyone I talk to, ride height is a constant and we don't change it based on tire size. Meaning adjust ride height to compensate for the difference in diameter.

In regard to ride height changing for tires, you should always adjust ride height back after a tire change.

The shorter a tire gets, the less leverage the bottom of the tire (contact patch on track) has against the hub/spindle hinge pin fulcrum (think longer bar == more leverage) as the car is in a corner. This results in less ability to pull the camber link outward toward the outside of the corner and produce chassis roll. Raising the ride height up, as we all know, increases roll, so correcting ride height in this case replaces some of the lost chassis roll.

Thanks guys... I was thinking of splitting the difference but I think you've convinced me to reset ride height.

I usually apply a little sauce to the rear tires, then scrub it in with one of those small fingernail brushes, then I use the same brush on the fronts without adding any more sauce. The brush has enough sauce stuck in the bristles to still effectively sauce the tires without really needing to add more. I make sure to keep the fingernail brush in an old resealable tire bag.

I actually do something similar with a toothbrush. Just use very little / leftovers from rears.

http://www.redrc.net/2015/01/schelle...r-arm-mount-d/



"The Schelle B5M aluminium rear arm mount D replaces the kit plastic part on a B5M and T5M. The design improves durability, ground clearance, and also ease of use to disassemble the rear suspension, while the added strength of aluminium allows for a minimalist design using machined Delrin pivot balls to allow for perfect suspension alignment. The compact design keeps the mount high off of the chassis bottom to avoid dragging on jumps and landings. With the addition of a rear carbon fibre cap, Schelle is planning new inner hinge pins that allow for rear-pull in dis-assembling the rear end and changing anti-squat. Available in both black or blue anodized with laser etched Schelle logo."

In regards to the different diameter tires, always reset ride height to the tires. This is a big thing in on road when running foam tires. If you forget to set it after a couple heats or practice runs the car just doesn't handle well anymore. I also have to readjust droop after a couple runs, so I would do that with the shock eyelet on my buggy.

With all this talk of foams... How do you guys go about replacing foams? I want to save both the tire and rim but replace my shot foams. But they are clay compound tires so acetone doesn't work... Do you cut them with an exacto knife?

Boil one side of the rim for 10 to 15 minutes should just come right off.

On the foams most cut with a sharp exacto right at the inside bead. Replace foam and reglue not that hard really.
