q-tips work well.
Doug, were you running on asphalt or carpet?

Indoor concrete with a 160ft straight and sweepers at both ends so it was more like 180ft or 190ft.

Default Hpi Pro 4 tuning

Doug Gaut;

Thanks for all of your set-up advice. With the manual and your suggestions, I've got a plan of action in mind.

Funny about how the stiffer Rear spring worked for you. I've also experienced the same thing once or twice over the years.

Guys;

It will be a week or two before I get the Car on the track again (this weekend is Off-road). I'll post my set-up changes and findings after I get some more track time with the new set-up (parts pending).

Thanks,
Steven

I am looking forward to seeing your results!! The more information we can share the better off we will all be. Everybody has different driving styles and track conditions but there is always something to be gained by others experiences!! Best of luck!

pops - I did a little testing yesterday with the TC3 gold springs (19lbs suggested in the Andy Kraemer setup) all the way around and actually gained rear traction, got the car to push a little. Now I'm gonna try switching down to a 2.5 block in the rear to reduce the scrubbing of speed into corners. Try the heavier springs. I think you'll like it.

Let me know the affect after switching to the 2.5. My car dogs a little with 3.0. I can't find 2.5, 2.0, or 1.5 blocks.

Rod, are you using the oneway as well? Are you running a mostly kit setup? Is this for mod or stock?

Steve at Speedtech had them in stock a week or so ago. I bought all the different toe in blocks from their. Give him a call or go to his website and place an order. He is fast to ship and has great overall service to the customers. One of my favorite places to order from when I'm not order from my local shops.

After you order over the computer you will get a order number and then a email of when you order goes out.

Doug - I am running the one-way. I mainly race Stock and 19T. My setup is mainly stock except I reduced the inner camber link height from 4mm/3mm front and rear to 2mm/2mm. Last time I ran the car on the track I race on the track was a not in the greatest condition so I lowered the inner links to get the car to roll a little to gain some traction all around. I'm gonna try the 2.5 rear block tonight and see how that goes.

My track is high bite so I went the opposite way with the inner camber links to reduce roll/grip. What is nice is that 1mm raised or lowered makes a huge difference in handling.

Here is a shot of the TeamPRP TruSpin & one-way plate installed for those who haven't seen them yet. The anodising on the one-way plate is a perfect match to HPI's purple, and although I'm betting most of you have seen my post praising the plate, I'll say it once again, not a single gear breakage since I've been running it - which is around 2 months now. www.teamprpracing.com

Ben, I'll send you an e-mail a little later tonight. Thanks.
