Matt,

Were you running a production speedo? Your thoughts on it? When you have time can you share a setup sheet?

Thanks,
Brian

I am running a pre-production losi sensored esc but I just updated the firmware to the production specs this morning so for all intensive purposes, I now have a production one. It's going to come with both a setting card and a USB cable with software to make more adjustments via a PC. It feels so much more linear than any other brushless esc I've run so far, you guys will love it.

Here's my setup from the nats.

front
20lb spring, 57 pistons, 45 wt oil, middle hole on tower
.05 sway bar
high roll center blocks
regular castor link, used inside upper hole on shock tower and short ballend on castor block
arms spaced in the middle
4 deg castor
inside hole used on the steering link (makes the steering turnbuckles longer)
5 1/2 mm ride height, 1.5mm droop

rear
12.5lb spring, 55 piston, 35 wt oil, middle hole on tower
arms spaced to the rear
3 deg toe in
low roll center blocks
inside hole on hub for camber link, inside middle on tower
5 1/2mm ride height, 2mm droop

PF Mazda 6 used

If I forgot anything just let me know

When running LiPO's have you tried running the car light and compared it to running the car legal weight? I have been having trouble keeping the front faster than the rear and am starting to think it has to do with my car being so light.

Is there any info on the Losi site? All I have found is the sensorless esc. Have you had a chance to run the senorless esc?

Diffs high or low?

Any orings on top of the bladders?

When you say "regular" ball end link on the front, that's removing the JR link?

I knew I would forget something
diff high in front and back
regular link in front, AKA not the JR link
nothing above the shock bladders

that's how i've been running mine. i'm running super light springs, like 10lb rear and 12.5lb fronts. i run at speedworld, so it's asphalt / rubber tires. i'll get a good feel for the new surface tomorrow, but i'm expecting my setup to be fine.

Russ, when did Speedworld open up again or is this weekend the start. I might try to shoot up there tomorrow if I have the time to take my lowely TT01 out for a spin and see what the Type R can do.
