I don't think it will be as effective. You'll still thread in the plastic.
Using a self locking nut will "hold" your regolation.

I've solved a lot using this way.

Does anyone have an editable setup pdf? I could have sworn there is one floating around, but the search didn't find it.

Did some testing over the weekend and made some changes to my upper deck design based on what I expereinced last time. This time I managed to make high roll centers work and have crazy steering both on and off power with good corner speed and response. I removed a middle section of the upper deck so as to have flex with the posts in place. Results where I was able to drive by one of the top drivers at my local club like he was standing still.

I attached my current setup that's treated me well. Its still a work in progress. I need the car to carry a little more corner speed and rotate a little faster. The rear of the car is very stable. I was gonna try shorter wheel base, maybe move the shock to number 3. How about camber links? Comment are welcomed.

What you would do getting cold, at home, with a laptop, and a losi on the bench...?

A new chassis and a new rear diff, beased over the 42 teeths corally gear, with larger disks and 18 balls...

Rui..

Try 5-b and OD 41T pully. Also I have been a HUGE fan of #3 front link..That makes a huge diffrence. That #3 will give tons all around steering. I run that 90% the time myself.

Is it safe to say shorter rear camber links make the car rotate more and longer settle the rear more? I was gonna try moving it to 5 last week, but didn't wanna ruin the car for the main.
When are you coming to Horsham?
Thanks for the comment guys

I was saying on rear hub, but never mind with a 0.03 washer on 5B camber rod does clear rear hub when its pulley compressed. 5B is what I been running this summer too 4B too plant it for me.

I like that top deck work, Looks nice! Your racing on asphalt right, any ideas about how this would work on carpet?

So, you going to build it? That diff would be awesome.


I still haven't been able to give my Type R a proper test yet because the local on-road club imploded, but it is being rebuilt and should be able to give the car a test first weekend in November, finally.

Up north here we're running a 1500g weight limit so I picked up a steel tray to bring the car up to weight with out resorting to a brick of lead. The thing about the steel tray I noticed is that it makes the chassis absurdly rigid. Have any of you guys found a solution to this problem? Even bolting in the regular plastic tray adds a lot of rigidity. I've got a few ideas that would let the chassis flex independent of the battery tray, but have yet to really lay them out in detail.

Also, does anybody make a different upper deck that gives more room for batteries with vertical exit wires? My SMC 4500s are an awfully tight squeeze even with a modded upper deck.
