You could soften the rear spring a touch. I run a 15lb front / 10.5lb rear in similar conditions. No sways unless I need a little push.

Jon, I would stiffen up the back of the car to a 17 spring, and also use the .05 sway bar.

I had a similar loose condition on corner exit whoch went away when I loosened the rear diff. Don't loosen it enough to let the diff slip under power, you want it to not slip, but not much tighter than that.

I fought with the loose exit thing for weeks until I got the diff set right.

Default Losi lipo question

Since some of the guys here mentioned they've used the Losi lipo packs, I was hoping someone could answer a question on them. What type of connector is used for the balancing lead? I check Losi and Horizon and neither tell you. I'm looking to buy one, so if someone could answer that, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

I believe it is a Losi plug. I had to use a "Blinky" with the losi adapter to balance the pack.

Is it because the rear is too soft? Should I run the .050 front and rear? My track doesn't have that much traction, should I go softer all around?

Thanks again.

Front high and rear low roll center. I tried with the long rear link, It almost fixed it but the car didn't react fast enough in the sweepers.

Tried flat and anti dive in the front, with anti-dive, it felt like the car had less off power steering at the corner entry and pretty much the same at exit.

running .030 sway bar front and rear 17.5F, 15R springs. when I ran the .040, I tried removing the rear sway but suprisily it was worst.

I played with the droop but didn't fixed it either

Now What I'm thinking to do ... (Let me know if you have other ideas or feedback)
- 40W oil in the rear (currently 35)
- Rear kickup (.030 shim underfront block)
- Maybe try the Jr Link
- diff height?

Thanks in advance
Besides the other things if you are using a spool check if it is loose

Most of the time on rubber carpet going stiffer on the setup will make it have more grip. I always run .05 bars front and rear....however my little brother likes to have his car a bit more planted, so i have a rear .06 in his.

Hey everyone,

Im starting out in the on-road scene and im curious as to what a good set up is for asphault with decent traction would be. I am running sorex 32r's. I am running the rs-pro 17.5 combo with the tekin lipo aswell.

Thanks,

Mikey Bustamante

I've been running Mike's setups this year and one week we ran at a regular parking lot track, with no compound the setup still worked very well. (for some reason compound hurt traction)
