Hi Mike - This car is SOOWWEEEEEET....!
Good luck to you at the IIC - I wish I could be there this year again but, I had already committed to the Nascar Race in KC this year w/my brothers... Last Year I went to the IIC - then the Nascar Race was the following weekend. Oh well maybe next year?
This is the setup I've been using the last few weeks with only a few variations.
28lb Spring in Front
25wt Oil in the back
Front Droop 2 - up
Front Ride Height 5
Rear Droop 1 - up
Rear Ride Height 4
Shock Pistons 1.3 - rounded
BTW... I'm running 4300 Brushless LiPo.. 1420g total weight.
The car has a ton of steering. I have the dual rate turned down to 67%. Carries alot of corner speed. Magenta's all the way around.
If you get a chance.... come to race with us in Omaha sometime. Jeff Brown & Brad Johnson came up to "The PLEX"
HobbyPLEX Carpet Onroad Challenge last February and had a blast... The Next Big Race..November 1st-4th.
Track and facility pictures here...
BTW. I heard "The Plex"
has submitted to be the host track for the Carpet Nats this year... so it might be a good opportunity to come check it out ahead of time?
