Default MO5 V2

Here are some shots of my MO5 V2 I tested yesterday at my local track.
I had some clearance issues using the MO5 alloy front knuckles,as they hit the gearbox cover, so havd ordered the thinner MO5 Ra knuckles to solve this.
The car was actually easy to drive and more forgiving than the previous model. I look forward to more testing and adjustment.

Hobbywing 13t combo
TRF shocks
Tamiya aluminium steering linkage.
Yeah racing gear diff

Front:
Tyres: Ride mc38 wheels and tires (club tyres)
Camber: stock
toe out: 2degrees
Shock oil: 45w
Spring: red

Rear:
Front:
Tyres: Ride mc32 wheels and tires (club tyres)
Camber: 2 degrees
toe in: 2 degrees
Shock oil: 45w
Spring: blue

Any advice?

I think the the first thing is to try reversing the springs. If you are using stock kit springs red is soft and blue is hard. I run the hard blue in the front and medium yellow in the rear. So try running harder spring in the front and softer springs in the rear first. It sounds like you are getting to much front traction and your issue could be as simple as reversing the springs?

Since you got a lot of responses, This is the last bit of advice. Most Mini set ups are integrated so one thing works with another. The worst thing you can do is take a little bit from here and a little bit from there.

If you take a close look at Calvin's and my set ups, they are very similar. My suggestion would be to copy Calvin's set up as it is more detailed than what I suggested and would require more work. I made of couple of suggestions that would work if you used Calvin's set up as your base.

In any case, do it all. Too often, what will happen is someone will do most of what is suggested, and wonder why it didn't work. For example, if you used Calvin's set up and didn't use the sway bar, it wouldn't work nearly as well.

Thanks for all the responses guys. I really appreciate it. As soon as we get some dry weather I'll test it out.

I am working on putting together my new M05 Chassis. I have an extra set of TRF shocks NIB that are the touring car version. I have noticed that some guys have used them before. So what do i do to these to make them work? I am hoping i can use these

Hell no!!!!! Those are the best ones. They made several different varieties, but they all work. When building you'll just have use more spacers under the piston. For the longer shocks I prefer to use the aluminum spacers rather than the black o-rings, but that's just a quirk of mine.

Also, the piston rods or shock shafts should be 28mm in length. I suspect that the set you have are the right length. For a long shock build to 58mm or 57.5mm. for a short shock build to 56.5 or 56. Which goes where depends a lot on the motor you're using.

I took my car down to the track today and played with a few settings. It is now drivable again. I switched the front and rear springs around, so it had blue on the front and red on the rear, I also lowered it a little bit all round. It was instantly better. I then swapped the reds on the rear out for yellows. This was not a good move. It became more skittish. So I swapped them back around.

It was still bouncing/jumping through the corners a little bit but I broke a rim before I could do anymore testing. Next time I am going to try putting the yellows on the front.

The car is drivable again thats the main thing.
