That is a cheap ebay option if the Orion does not work out. You probably could email Team Orion or goto their website once they get it back online.
ok.. i'll try to contact team orion.

thank you very much...

heres mine:

2 degree toe in rear uprights

super mini plastic shocks

2 hole 40 weight rear, short red springs, 2mm ride height spacer, no spacer inside.

1 hole 80 weight front, short blue springs, long spacer inside the shock (the one that comes with the shocks)

a type reinforced slicks front and rear.

hard foam inserts for the front, hpi hard molded foam in the rear (hard to find)

stock gear diff

21 tooth pinion

bearings of course

0 degree toe for the front

a standard slow servo

i also used the largest metal ring from the optional stiff servo. i just put it over the top of the standard servo saver. the rest of the optional servo saver is junk.

if the car is still tail happy put the stock rear tires on the front. i think they are m grip radials.

i think thats it.

Thanks Frank

Have you tried the sway bars?

I had ALOT of body roll which caused either a traction roll or the rear slid out. I'll try out that set-up of yours to see if it'll help me in my problem.

Anyone else?????

never tried the bars. they are a discontinued part and i don't think they would help.

sound like you need the m grip radial tires on the front and move the top of the rear shocks to the inner mount holes.

For those who have experiance on the RP30 tires, what were your impressions? I'm racing on a track with mid to low grip level.

Thanks,

Keith

Shocks are mounted on the inner-most setting already. But the use of the M Grip radials does sound promising

Default Suzuki Swift/Ozite Carpet setups

I've just bought a new Suzuki Swift M03M and I'm looking for good starting setups to run on ozite carpet. I've heard alot of guys run at my track

S- fronts
M- backs
(im guessing these are radials, not slicks.....sorry, I'm too new to this)

Not sure what type of tire inserts, shock springs/oil weights, number of holes in pistons. I've upgraded to the super mini cva shock set.
Any and all info would be greatly appreciated guys! Thanks alot!!!

We've finished our edited package of the highlights of all 3 legs of the A Finals from last Sundays racing soon, but until then, check out this amazing footage of all of the Mini A finals at the awesome Wodonga track in Northern Victoria.

And big congrats to Ash Peeler for taking out the title too...Yet another title for rc-mini.net, and Ash's first.

Tony, great video link!

What rules does this series require? (motor, tire, body etc.)

Essentially everything Tamiya...but you are allowed to use aftermarket (rubber) tires.
Bodies are Mini or Swift only, but can be from any manufacturer.
Motors are Sport Tuned. Even though they look a lot quicker!

i have the letters wrong

they are type A reinforced slicks. m04 will use them for rears

S grip radials are treaded tires. m04 can use them in the front to tame the turn in of the car.

m03 you might swap front to back.

Living proof that the M-03L can still rock!

I've only raced the M-04 before, and knew traction was going to be bad, so I bought my friend's M-03L a week before last Sunday's TCS here in Toronto.. set it up, swapped the drivetrain for my ultra-free M-04, and let'er rip.. in a sea of Swifts (3 mains of minis), some being really fast, I held onto TQ first round but couldn't keep it up after whacking a few corners and traffic in my second Q... time ran late so we only could get 2 Q's in..

I Q'd 4th in the end, 1-2-3 were M-03M's, but I came back and won the A main after finding my ultimate setup.... had to use S-grips in the front, one Type-A in the rear left, and an S-grip in the rear right! it was incredibly loose traction, but the right turns skipped while the left turns slid, so that was my solution to the problem! Used fluorescent red springs with a sway bar to keep the rear planted..

Regular suspension, alu. front uprights, normally-built ball diff, BMW Cooper body all work just fine.. but I do have a LW Swift body in the package, ready for paint, and LW suspension to strip from my M-04, gonna give it a try too.. but for those without an M-03M, don't give up! I've found that my saving grace was the square sides of the 03L body.. it let me get off from my side faster than the marshalls could get to it.. the others seem to have a tapered top and those wheel wells, keeping the wheels from touching the ground as well as the L does..

Oh, the car that came up just short of beating me (14yr. old started 5th, got ahead of the pileup while I was punted to the back, I kept on reeling him in, getting whacked by traffic, twice before he whacked a dot in the last 15 secs, letting me squeeze by) was a shortbase M-03! Those track dots are just evil, especially for minis!

The track was so loose, the top 19T GT1 racer did 21 laps (I managed 20), while the top minis were pulling 19-20 lap paces.. Slow is fast!

Thanks Tony.

"Sport Tuned" as in the Tamiya closed end-bell black can motor we use here in the states at the TCS Nats? (and yes they do looks very quick!)

also what is the tire/insert of choice?

Thanks in advance,

John
