Mr Haynes (or anyone that may know ),


On your rubber tire setup for the 2008 IIC, are the droop settings you have (1mm front and 2mm rear) measured over ride height or using a droop gauge?

Also, does anyone know how the Trinity oil compare to the Losi oil?

I am having issues getting the rear end to stick. It is really loose. I started with the IIC setup, but I am using Losi oil instead of Trinity. I have added an additional shim under the outer camber link in the rear (now have two), gone down to 35wt shock oil and 15lb springs in the rear.

Any suggestions?


Thanks

It's over ride height. I've never seen haynes use a droop guage.

that's interesting, usually greens have so much grip they make my car push. A few things to try would be low rear diff, 2dg camber, lay down the rear shock one hole, and goto a .040 sway bar.

We have a pretty low traction track. Thanks for the advice, I'll try that next time out.

I wonder if the tires are worn out. The seam is gone, but the inserts don't feel broken down.


Thanks

I see a lot of you guys using Jaco tires on carpet. Will they work on asphalt? Or are they just a carpet tire

i have used mikes setup. and spoken to him about it...

i also used losi oil,

the droop is over ride height

going to 35 wt and 15 lb springs will give it MORe steering...

i would check your rear diff settings, make sure your shocks are the same
the car is not tweaked....swaybars ....

for me mikes setup pushed on high traction, and i went to the setup posted above for the novak.....
i do use mikes setup for club racing.....it works very well....

let me us know how it turns out

i am using haynes set-up (spool).
it works good...im using all but the antidive things.
i was also having probs with the ass of the car being loose.
so i went to a long camber link...lowest setting...and a 25 spring in the back...in thoery to me i thought making the rear softer will cure the problem..just to find out it made it come around easier.so went back to square one and went with the 25 spring.
works good....im using jaco greens as well on a low bite track.
