actually most foam setups have level pins. Rubber tire setups sometimes have some antisquat in the rear but that's it. I haven't tried Dumas' setup but I've run Schreff's and it works really well.

Default Steering rack Question

Hi guys, happy new year.

I have a question about the steering rack.

We have the extra inner hole to change the ackerman settings.

How will this affect the handling of the car, would it better or worse

Has anyone ever used this setting

Cheers

Tim

Just got more in as well along with our new Ceramic Balls which we combined into a Diff rebuild kit with the thrusts.

I replaced my front with a Losi molded thrust bearing when it went... However when I blew my rear bearing I didn't have any Losi ones left in the shop but had an Xray one from my previous car that fit... Haven't run into any issues after that...

Ok, one other setup-related question. On both Mike's and Schreff's setup they don't indicate whether they are running the JR link in the high or low position. Does this mean they ran in the stock low position or replaced the JR link with a traditional ball stud?

Both Mike and myself ran the standard link with ball stud in the caster block. I used a tall ballstud (LOSA9947) in the caster block. I'm not sure whether Mike used a tall or shockneck ballstud on his car.

Thanks man. Can I assume you did this to get more steering over the JR link?

BTW, great reference to Grandma's Boy in your signature

I wouldn't say the standard link gives a lot more steering. If anything, the car reacts a lot faster to wheel movement. With how fast we're going on foams now at big races, a car that doesn't react = B main or worse.

Default Spool Question

I wanted to use a 42T spool up front for this weekends race, but mistakenly ordered a 41T spool pulley...So i need to inprovise and need your advice. The pads that come with the 41T spool, are they attached/glued to the 41T pulley or are they detached? If they are detached, can I take the spool pads from the 41T pulley and put them on a 42T front diff pulley, and make a 42T front spool?

You can, but they are rather brittle, so be very careful if you wana go down that route, or choose the option of making sand paper rings, this works very well, but why do you wana use a 42 instead of 41, as the 41 gives you more traction on steering with a spool
