7000 tubes
Center shock- red spring, 40wt
jaco gray 1.75 full paragon
4mm ride height
2.5mm pod droop
batteries middle

Parma Speed 8 lightweight body

I was thinking the pod droop might be the problem but it was also lifting the front tire off power. My first thought was to go up in the damper tubes but anytime I've tried 10,000 it was slower than with 7000. Another racer dropped to 5000 and was very pleased.

Here's a link to the full results:

Jeff, Kevin, and myself (Troy) were all running BMI in Super Stock.

Try 5* Blocks and a little thicker front lube.

Hi guys,
I need suggestions for a setup for a very low grip smooth ashfelt track.
I will be using the new RR and there is no tire additive allowed.

Just some ideas for a good base setup to start with.

Thanks

How often should the foam ring, the orange and black O-rings be replaced in the Micro Shock?

good question bud im thinking that it will be the same time as always around 5 or 6 but since there are some people coming in from out of state to get a run on the snowbirds layout i think mike will try to get it started a little earlier but im not sure

Looks to me like the IRS castor blocks and upper arms with the castor blocks anodized blue. Very nice looking


Sorry i havent been on here as much guys. My home computer took a dump and i havent had a chance to get to the store yet with the holidays here. After tonight i should have the time. I will be back more often again shortly.

Everyone have a safe and happy new year and be sure to drink way too much. See you guys next year.

Those are indeed the IRS castor blocks... http://www.teamirsrc.com/caster.html...available in plain or blue. Very well made and also allows for four different hinge pin locations. The upper arms are VERY durable. Yes, I have proven that on a number of occasions.

A bit too pricey for my budget, I'll have to go with a bit less bling
