I heard he hacked Paul in the 3rd Main too

Still though, I'm glad whenever Chris wins. Losi and AE can battle in the US all they want with their 20-man teams, for Yokomo to roll in there with just Chris, plus the fact that he's running for a (comparitively) lesser-known motor company (Fantom) and still drop some smack on those guys is pretty darn cool.

But Paul's still the best driver there. Too bad he doesn't run for Yokomo. The Lemieux/Tosolini Fantom racing team would kick ass. hehe

Congrats to Yokomo!

Odd, how Chris just flicked on the winning switch after Barry left.

So do you guys think there will be a Chris Tosilini version of the SP on the way from Yokomo?

Just what we need, more versions of the MR4TC...

In other news, my Yokomo Special is back in action as of tonight. I ran some rubber mod by myself on the track and it was tons of fun. The car is pushing like crazy but for the shakedown cruise it wasn't bad.

Only problem so far is that all of my wheels are HPI R5s, and they appear to be rubbing at all four corners on the Special. D'oh. Anybody else use these wheels? Most around here just use the dish wheels, but I just gotta be different...

I need to track down Tosolini's current setup.

Shane- other than whatever changes he had to make to compensate for the CS-27's front and rear, his set up is up a little bit in this thread. I posted it last week saying that it's the one I'm running right now. The blue/yellow 40/30 set up is the one you want for mod carpet rubber. My car was sooo wicked in 19 turn at the Snowbirds- too bad I can't drive for crap....

Hey MO- if you get a chance, maybe you could post any changes in the mod carpet setup that you guys found at the Nats. I know the control tires threw it off some...

BTW- sorry you had so much bad luck in heats and stuff. Ruben told me about your stroke of bad luck. Everyone has crappy weekends, yours just happened to be at the Nats- dammit man!!

The setup that Chris and I ran at the Nats is now up on my web site. www.mo-net.ws

Bigdog, qualifying was kind of messy, got bounced around a bit but I had my share of screwups too. I still had a lot of fun though.

Paul Lemieux was running the control tire at our track last week (Take Off 27s) so we were comparing setups a bit. He basically made his car soft as heck with light oil and it seemed to grip a bit better. I can only assume that they did the same thing to the Yokes, except I bet there was twice as much traction at Ripon as there is here.

I will check the setup out.

Jason- Could you outline those fonts in the PDF? I don't seem to have the TrueType font that you used- Congrats on a good run.

I don't know how to do too much in acrobat, so I posted a .jpg version now also.

This also happens to be the setup that Chris usually runs at Socal.

MO,

You ran the World's chassis? Does that mean Chris did too? Was there really a difference?

I'd be surprised if Chris did. He ran the Special at the Novak race, which was a very similar environment to Ripon, with the exception of the control tire...

Yes, we ran both ran the worlds chassis. It was more consistant and easier to drive than the special chassis.

mo, I noticed when I change from my c/f top deck to the regular one, the car becomes easier to drive. Could be the worlds is just stiffer?

Couple questions about the setup, rear shocks are pretty short, wouldn't you have to put a lot of pre-load to make ride height, and would that hurt performance? Also, What do you think of running high roll center all around as opposed to low rear, high front or low all around? Obviously will stop the car from rolling as much...

Did you get the top deck? I sent you an email a long time ago but I guess you didn't get it.

A car with more flex will be easier to drive, but not as consistant. On high traction surfaces, I think a stiffer car is better (to a point) than a flexable car. A flexi car will tweak easier and do wierd things in the corners because of the flex. On a low bite surface, the flexi car will have more grip.

High roll centers seem to make the car easier to drive (less responsive). I think the low roll centers give the car more traction. I think on a low grip track, you might want to try low roll in the rear and high roll in the front. I am going to mess with that on the asphalt. There is no more carpet racing around here until October or November.

Speedo: I got the top deck and it looks great. I tried it the week before the nats and it seemed to make the car twitchy. I think I just need to play with the setup more. Didn't have enough time to do it at the nats though. It seemed to help keep the car from tweaking though.
