Does anyone have a good profile setting for the GTB 4 cell brushless system? Im not sure what the different settings are... I was told to use profile 3.

Jason, Did you ever talk to you wife about the package? I missed a race i was going to. Just wanted to know, i thought it was shipped out monday..

Ben

It did ship out. She said it didnt go out on monday because she had alot of packages to bring and she didnt get them all ready in time. I will find out when it went out. I am certain it went out though

Anyone thinking about getting a pit board to use at the track really needs to get a hold of Toastie over at 2mmdesigns@gmail.com This guy has some serious skills, check out the sample that he sent me (sorry for the bad pic, I had to resize it to fit)

Sorry for the little hijack Jason

Jason - Did you see this past Sunday's Family Guy Star Wars episode? I laugh pretty hard at all their episodes, but holy crap that was hilarious. I'm trying to figure out an easy way to get it off the Tivo and onto my laptop.

Dale - You would not believe how many weird looks I get when I get carded at bars because of that license pic. But, then they realize that is much better looking than my real mug.

I'd like to make it down to the Toledo track at least a few times this season. I'll see if I can round up some other Michiganders. I'm also planning on hitting the new track in Grand Rapids a few times, too.

-Rich

Apply 5000wt lube on front kingpin (the one holding front spring) causing daming effect to slow the reaction of front suspension.

That should be good. It sounds like the car is pushing going into the corner. Try .018 front springs. If it still happens, I would go to a blue shock spring and that should cure it.

So it's like front spring is too hard, causing front bounce back, result losing weight transfer on front?

Btw, I had on-power understeering at the begining. I corrected it with harder rear spring (from BMI default to CRC-gold). Is this the right way to do? or I should do something differently?

A good fix for on power push is to shim up the front of the shock. Going to a stiffer center spring will create an entry push.try going to the .018 front springs and put a 1mm shim under the black ballstud on the antenna mount. The .018 front springs work well on lower traction carpet. It allows the front to roll more.
