That is correct. The red crc one and the ti screw are both 100 degrees.

For the low arms, i have a screw, for make strip in it, before mount with normal screws, and is fine.
In rear, the pod is not than free i like, when mount the L plates, i working in this part now.

In other hand, the carbon pieces and IRS parts, have a very good feeling.
My big problem, is with Imperial units, i have a caliper with both units, and have to use constantly.

Greetings, Luis C.
When you have the car at ride height and with full electronics, the springs will compress slightly. You want there to be about .25-.5mm of droop in the front to start.

With the rear pod, you want to make sure the set screws are not tight on the pivot balls. The set screws are for adjusting out play only.

Looking at the Lunsford ones they look identical to the CRC ones...wonder if that's where CRC gets theirs.

http://www.lunsfordracing.com/mm5/me...y_Code=STDFLAT

Now that I think about it...wasn't 8-32 always 100 degrees, the ones used in pan cars? I remember our LHS used to bring in the Niftech countersink specifically for 8-32 and a different one for 4-40. I believe the AE screws are also 100 degree. I assume then that the IRS screws are 82 degree...which other ones are 82 degrees?

WOW. A little bit of a price diffrents? I am gona pick up some Losi steel 8-32 flat head screws to try. They say 82 deg head soo I will see how they fit.

Just tore the car apart. For some reason if i set the pod flat and tighten the front screw it holds a small tweak but If I flex it opposite of the tweak and tighten the screw it sits flat. Im just gona go with that for now. I did find my two front screws in the front end are bent. Im hoping that is what is causing the issues.

Now I have never tried RC Screwz but have tried SS screws before and you couldnt pay me to run them. There only good for two times in and out before there junk. They just strip out really easyly.

Regards,

I would be surprised if anyone has, the car is designed to run the single cell lipo, no t-bar so no need for a split pack. Where are those avalible, I have'nt even seen those before?

Well ? My front screws were bent. New ones cleaned it right up. No more tweak. Got to hit the track for a couple of quick packs. Nice and straight.

Black/grey tires rotated just as hard as the megenta/pink but was smoother and more consistent. But the rear let go about 5mins in. Pretty much NO forward traction. Gonna throw the pink back on in the back and see what it does. I also moved the servo forward and have on power steering to spare. Very consistent for the first 5 to 6 mins of a run.

I agree. I run lilac/yellow combo with jack the gripper and no spinouts. The spinouts at the 6 minute mark are the front tires gumming up. Happens alot with jack

The 8-32 screws in the front end were bent.

My car is not spinning out, the rear tires are spinning when I get on the gas. Like when going threw a switch back I can hear the inside rear tire pick up and spin. The side bite is the same the whole run and really nice, just lacking forward traction.

I have a set of pink rear to try so those are gona be next. Will go from there. Just hate to goto yellow cause of how easy they chunk.
