Or maybe it's just a database replication quirk. Balancing a farm of servers is non-trivial. I wonder if vBulletin will ever be able to work with memcached?

Err, I mean, woo, go Losi!

Anyway, I tried running Pro 53 magentas on all four corners tonight, with Larry's setup suggestions. And holy Jesus did the car turn. I mean, I went to take a sharp turn, overdid it, and turned completely around going the opposite direction. And it wasn't loose, it just turned in a way I didn't even think was possible. It wasn't totally impossible to drive, but I guess I'm not there yet, I couldn't be graceful with it, and made too many mistakes to be fast.

BUT... it gave me a great opportunity to test out the new arms. And they're just fine, which is a very welcome change. I hit more crap tonight than in the last 3 months combined, and didn't break a thing. I wimped out and went back to my old tire combo for the last two races, though. It's going to be a while before I can drive something that unruly. I have a renewed respect for what you guys do. :-)

Okay, so, the shocks. If you build the shocks, and they rebound a little bit when pushed in, and suck in a little be when pulled all the way out, does that mean I need to bleed them a bit? Do you guys run them totally dead, or with rebound? The deal with them sucking back in is weird, I've not seen that on other shocks.

Also, when the traction comes up, if the car starts to want to tip/lift when cornering hard, what's the first thing you usually change? I guess we're spraying the track with Paragon now to better simulate a large race, and the car generally works better, but it really wants to lift if I dig in too hard. Should I look at gluing side walls?

Check your PM. I sent you a set up.

I usually have my front shocks rebound 100% and my backs about 50%.

did you put a couple drops of shock oil on the o-rings before you assemble the shocks?

That's pretty amazing. I've gotta think something else about the setup was making the car turn too hard, I can't imagine trying to drive something like that consistently. I'm running the kit setup with 6 degree hubs, and 25lb springs in the rear.

25 lb rear springs are really stiff. I would not go any heavier than 20lb rears and with magentas on the front I usually went 12.5-17.5.

20lbs were usually with cyan fronts.

Ah, I just checked the notes I had, and it did say 20 in the rear. Damn. I'll experiment with it more in the coming weeks, and try going softer in the rear. I'm going to give Rob's setup a try, too.

I see a lot of guys using sway bars on this car for their carpet setups. Is this the only car where that happens regularly? I was under the impression that sway bars were almost never used on carpet with foams.
