= camber mod.. last time I ran it, my car pushed so bad.

I think**** that it is more for rubber tires.. Rubber tires, bigger wheel, arm at completely different angle compared to foam.. making the roll center much lower and the suspension acts differently.. the mod smooths out the car. just a theory.. havnt run rubber in years.

the mod makes the front link longer= less camber change- more roll resistance..

i could be way off

So since I put the rubber setup on it, should I leave the mod? If it pushes I am wondering how much more so since I have a spool up front.

Be interesting to see what you think of it after you have a chance to run it. Does look pretty cool.
Thanks, it was a challenge. This car is great for the LiPo crowd, but the brushless ESC is definitely going to be interesting.

I'm going to try and get out to a club race tomorrow and see how it feels. I don't expect much from a car the first time out, but I'm still excited to see how it goes. I'm sure we'll be refining the kit foam setup quite a bit in the coming weeks.

I kinda want to remove the mod so I can adjust front camber without popping off a ball cup. :-\ It doesn't look like anybody is running it with foams on carpet. I'm guessing you could just use the same hardware as the rear camber links if you decide to replace it?

Brant said it best.... just run it.

Best thing to do is to use the rubber setup that it comes with (i think i heard it came with a rubber setup too)
