I need it to rotate quickly and turn left to right much faster- it needs to be more reactive...tried some of Schreffs set up for the Jackson race, but I still dont get the reaction I'm looking for...I have tried different shock oils and spring combinations, roll centers, camber link, sway bars, JR-Link and standard, but it just doesnt seem to get them car to become so agressive that you actually need to calm it down...that's what i'm looking for...I'd like for it to be reactive anough that I'll need to actually tone it down a bit...Any suggestions?

Currently using:

Ride height: 5mm FR, 5.5R
High ROll centers all around- have tried High front, and low rear also
Shocks- 45W 15lb front, 40wt 12lb Rear with 2 o-rings
1.5 camber all around
4 deg caster
2 deg rear toe in
diff position: front high, rear low
Front Spool
Camber link: front-#3, with standard link, and rear: 5A
swaybars: Front .40, rear .30
Tires- Jaco Rubberz (Greens:Med firm)
Mazda Speed 6 body
I can think of a few things. Raise both diffs to the high position that'll make your car more aggressive. Change your body type to a dna 2 that will give your car a tad more steering. Lastly (most importantly) get the one way for the front.

Sorry for that chassis stupidity in the other thread Schreff. I wanted to apologize there but it got locked. I think what you did at Snowbirds is one of the great R/C stories I've seen so far. I didn't see that post from BMI or I never would have brought it up. That whole thing was lame from the beginning.

Looking at Shreff's setup, Do you think that runing the rear link in the 4/B position with the 3mm shim would be similar to 7B and about 1mm shim?

Also I know it was posted before but can't find it, What's the difference between short and std/longneck ballstud. If I want to duplicate shreff's setup, should I use 2.5 mm shim with the longneck?

Thanx

Let me see if I can help you out here...

Moving the link to 7/B, regardless of shimming on the hub, is a big difference from 4/B. That is more of a complete roll center change. In essence, you are lowering the whole link. That "raises" the rear roll center since you are moving the link closer to the lower pivot point. The link will also end up being a little shorter which will be more camber change. That might be something advantageous to rubber, but not to the foam setup Larry and I have created.

The difference in standard neck ballstud to shortneck ballstud is .030". That's roughly .75mm. So 2.5mm plus a standard ball stud will be taller than a 3mm/shortneck stud.

Default Smaller Pulleys

Anyone run the 41T pulleys front and back. The manual recommends not to, but it drops the internal ratio from 1.83 to ~1.7 are there any advantages to this in 19t brushed or 10.5, 13.5 brushless??

doing that may make it easier to gear motors like a 13.5 with the big rotor and a 17.5.


which lipo packs fit the type-r better with the plastic tray? orion 3600 or orion platinum?
