Some more setup help
Hey Jason you or anyone else have some good suggestions for a LiPo/BL setup for the RR yet? (for a med/high bite track?)
my setup I ran today - which was just a default starting point, worked OK, but in the main while I had some incredible traction I also had an issue where in the corner the car would traction roll at the end of a high speed straight.
The setup is:
Ride height 3.5 - 4mm
Caster is at One shim in front and one in back on the 5Deg block
About 1.0 Neg Camber
Laydown Servo so I have some toe in on compression
Fronts trued/worn down to 1.6 or so
.20 linear springs
5000 weight on the kingpins
Compound - Black compound
1 Cell LiPo all the way back
Center shock at the tall front mount position
50wt in the Siliva shock, Blue spring
Sure Lube #3 in the tubes.
Thin flex plates with the forward mount in the softest position (forward)
Center height 4mm
78 Spur/45 Pinion (10.5T)
Ride height 4mm
~ .5 mm droop, maybe less
running tires trued/worn to 1.7
Compound: CRC Yellow
Body Parma Speed 8.
Total weight with body 715gm
So as you can see the car is very soft, but transitions great due to its low weight. if I left it stiff the car felt very slippery, making the ass end softer and going to the .20 front springs really let the car transition through corners. Unfortunately it couldnt cope with the lateral loads in the highspeed corners and started rolling itself over on most corners at high speed. Our winter points series just wrapped up, but my goal is now to get a real solid setup documented and well tested for this summer and carry it into the coming season. We just standardized on a 10.5T BL / 1 Cell LiPo setup for our 1/12ths.
