Droop is probably minimal as dampers are built to about 55mm. Toe is also becoming more minimal - maybe 1-2 degrees out at ride height. Current damper setup is 3 hole pistons, 20wt Trinity, short reds front, short blue rear, w. hard sway bar.

EDIT...sorry, were you asking me? I assumed.

Like he said, the other 2% is up to you.

Bensi, I've worked on that motor and it's slower than the Silvercan. The secret seems to be in how you break in the brushes.

Calm down. That was said in jest. And you're right, my apologies.

[QUOTE=back9monsta;12493675]Motor: handout Silver can
ESC: LRP QC3
Batt: IP 4200 60c
Servo: Futaba 9551
Radio: Airtronics M12
Body: Lt Wt Suzuki Swift

FRONT
I used TRF touring car shocks and put mini shock shafts with plastic damper retainer
56 mm shock length
Losi 60 wt Oil
3 hole piston
1mm of rebound
Short Black/Red spring
RIDE HEIGHT: 5mm
- I measure just behind the front arms.
I did check camber as it has fixed camber links since the ride ht. is at 5mm
Alum upright position 2, inner most hole
- To me this gave me more responsive steering
- Plastic 6mm wheel hub

Thanks Posting your set up Bensie. You are too kind. I wish I can offer advice on carpet set ups for the worlds to return the favor. But I can pray for you to win it

Default Toe and Droop

Toe: +.5 degrees, hard to say as I eyeball it.
Droop: I actually don't measure. I usually just build my shocks 55.5mm for carpet and 56mm for asphalt and lengthen or shorten from there.

Grandpa- Franko(Ova) not really a butthead, he just plays one here on RCTech.

Jesse and Franko, you both need to go down next year. Great to put faces to the screen names here and good to see old friends. Plus you get to play with toy cars for a week. Worst case you get a trip to Japan out of it.

Qualified 7th, finished 7th. I was satisfied with those placings considering circumstances. Old age, bad eyesight, bad driving, dumb mistakes, collisions, wipe outs among others. All in all, not a bad Nats for me and a lot of fun.

Really doesn't matter whether he is or not. I shouldn't joke with people I don't know. You never know who's going to take offense. My fault entirely. I apologized, so hope that assuages his feelings.
