I got my Type R a couple of days ago and putting it together currently. I will be running it in rubber class. Mike Dumas asked Todd on my behalf this same question.. In Vegas apparently they ran 25lb front springs, 15 in the rear. Would love to see a completed setup sheet (Todd?) to find out the fine details (oil weight, piston holes), and other geometry.

Default Adding weight to LiPo tray.

Earlier I saw a post suggesting that a steel Lipo tray could be made to add weight (in a very low location). I couldn't find this earlier message, so I don't know if you all already know this, but... While building my new car I was playing around with an orion 4800 in the chassis and it fits like a glove. The top of the Lipo is less than 1mm to a notch in the bulkheads. It is VERY obvious that they had an Orion 4800 in their hand when they designed this.. It looks like to keep the upper deck as low as possible, the tray that the Lipo sits on is quite thin (say 1-1.5mm maybe). This means with a steel plate, you'll proabably only get a couple ounces of weight under the LiPo. Hmmm. Anybody else come up with a ballast technique to get their LiPO car up to weight?

Maybe I need to make that plate out of Gold or Tungsten?

Hi Mark,

If I am not mistaken, we ran a 20 pound spring up front and a 12.5 rear in vegas for rubber. I still have my car partly build and that is what the spring says. As for oil if I remember right, we ran 40 front 30 rear with 56 piston al around. We also ran sway bar front and rear I think it was a .030 rear and .040 front.

hope that helps !

Type-R arrived today in UK, starting its build tonight.
Should test it Friday or Saturday at Aldershot for SLCC.

The tungsten would be cool, but I wouldn't want to machine it. Even if a steel one wouldn't get you home on weight, it would help. You could then use what's still needed to dial in front/back left/right balast. I'm gonna work on it whenever the UPs man shows up .

Thanks, This helps alot.. I was planning to go 20lb and 12 anyhow because of our local very low traction carpet track. It seems that all "Big Race" setups you see are for tracks with alot more grip than ours has.

I must say, for my first time out with the car, I was extremely pleased. The car changes directions like no other car I've ever driven. It has a completely different feel, but it's a good one.

In stock, I qualified 2nd and finished 3rd. In 19t, I qualified 2nd and finished 3rd. The results don't justify how good the car was. Either I had bad racing luck or just drove poorly. The car was easily fast enough for TQ and Win in stock. As for 19t, I have a little work to do there.

I did have the advantage of working with Andrew Gray and past Losi driver Craig Xavier. <- A big thanks to both these guys! I look for a different feel with my cars than Gray and X do. Some of the info they provided me worked for me, but I had to do some stuff on my own as well. I did need softer front springs though, that would have helped a lot.

I did let Larry Fairtrace (2007 SnowBirds Stock Touring Champ) drive my car in practice. He was really surprised how good the car was on only the 2nd pack on the track.

Only gonna get better as I get more time on the car.

Thanks again Todd!!
Awesome.........

EDIT - Beat me to it
