More testing Sunday you say,
I guess you'll be off the hook this time as I'll be working.
You get the right diff oils in there? 7k front 5k rear? That's what you need in there.

This Saturday I had a 10 hour day of test and tune. I put the car to the test and it passed. I only made a couple of changes from my previous post. I moved the rear hubs to the back of the arms and went from 500cst to 400cst in the rear and the buggy was on rails. I do think I need to install the front sway bar, but forgot them at home so I will report back. I finally settled on 23mm ride height. I also know if you flip the rear arms the car handles like an on road car and may be a great tuning tool for carpet guys.

As far as durability goes....the wing is the oly thing that has any damage. No popped ball cups or anything else. Car handles very well and became a lot more stable once I lightened the rear shock oil. It jumps and lands smooth without slapping the chassis. I also plan to change to a 3 toe block in the rear to add a little push and smooth out the steering. Stay tuned for more as I get more track time.

hey rick, what front arms were you testing, looking at the pics from my phone so it was hard to tell, rpm b44? my v3 has been fantastic as a practice mule, but I've broken a few front arms which keep me from running as hard as I can, also with the new chassis, will square packs fit? What's needed to convert the older platform?

Hi,
Yes I'm playing around with some RPM arms that I will be modifying and selling but still in the testing stage.

As for going to a V4S, shorty pack car you would need a chassis, upper decks and battery holder.. Should be out in July.

I am going to be switching to the 3 rear toe block to give the buggy more forward drive in hopes of creating a very mild push and smooth out the steering. This car has a ton of steering. I love it.
