That is possible however i would recommend the 41 pulley up front instead, then you will have gobs of on power steering.

Sad thing is I saw that in an earlier post and installed it on the one-way a few weeks ago. Front droop is at 1mm O.R.H. rear is at 2mm. I'll post the setup so you all can see how it looks. wish I had the setup sheet on pdf.

Too much weight transfer to rear on accel?

Thanks Mr. Losi for yours.

Mike, Larry congrats on the Snowbirds showing!

Easy way to save a setup sheet since you can't save the pdf is fill it out and then use the snapshot tool to copy the entire thing into a photoshop type program and save as a jpg. You can't modify it later, but at least you'll be able to share it.

Yes you are right on the reason. Too much weight is being transferred to the back of the car relative to the front of the car. So when you are in a turn, the car turns when the weight is on the front tires. When you accelerate, it transfers the weight off the front tires and back to the rear tires causing that on power push.

I would need the modifiable pdf and then could save it as jpg have done that for the Cyclone sheets in the past.

So thicker oil in the rear or rear anti squat?

Anyone have a good starting setup for asphalt rubber. It is a unprepared parking lot that gets wiped down and covered in syrup. Can be a little dusty at times and traction is sometimes a problem. I would be running 17.5 and 13.5 Any help would be appreciated.

Hey,

The DHW track is inconsistent. Each time I have gone, the car and grip were extremely different. Hopefully one of the locals has a TypeR and can help you out.

Mike, Larry,

Any updated setup from the birds or fastcats or they are similar to the vegas ones?

Thanx

Hey Jon,

I can't talk for Mike and Larry about rubber setups, but as for FOAM tire stuff, setups really didn't change at all. All we did was change shock oil. 60wt front/50wt rear. Other than that, everything else is the same. The car is still unreal on foam tires.

Default FDR and rollout calculator

I created this as I don't have access to gearchart at all times..

It is an excel spreadsheet. You can customize the sheet to suit your needs

Any comments or questions, feel free to ask.

Note this sheet will calculate FDR and rollout with 41 and 42 pulleys.. To do so, make sure you change the number at the top of the sheet.
