Yes, they are normally very snug; so, what you did is a good workaround.

Thanks Bill. I have actually been working off of a picture of your car while working on this thing. She still has a ways to go as I am waiting on parts but at least she's ready to go play tomorrow.

Super! I am on the east coast and have not been on-line much.

Let us know how things go.

Okay, I'll bite... What is it?

Oh, and you'll have less unsprung weight if you move those shocks away from their attachment point on the rear pod and flip them 180 degrees. That way only the pistons move, not the whole shock body.

Plus if your going to do that might as well use the smaller Encore shock on the sides

That's a 235mm conversion I'm working on... Your remark about the side shocks has been duly noted. I will rotate them. Thanks :-)

Encore shocks would also be a good solution but higher volume shocks would be more constant and easier to setup. By the way I also note this possibility. It would reduce the total weight a lot. Thanks.

Side dampers would be even lighter and even easier to change the damping characteristics. Since there are no springs pictured on the side shocks, I assume that there will be tweak springs on the chassis?

I have been looking into getting the SE WGT. Are there any thing I need to go ahead and change out or spare parts to get? The majority of the races will be outdoors on asphalt. And what's the body of choice? I currently have a R5 that I ran a few years ago and just getting back into it.

Replacements:
- Steering blocks
- Side links

Upgrades:
- Both I and others have previously posted several setup suggestions; so, please look back on this string. Basically, SG1's posted carpet setup also worked very well on asphalt for me. Still using it.

Several SE set-ups work great on asphalt from SG1. Also the stock set-up works very good. Bodies Sophie and Black Art for me.You can look at my car today or tommorow-I'll give you a few bodies to try for yourself Eugene. Glad to see you move up to CRC.

Default Tilted Front Upper Arm

Hello

Question about why you guys tilt the upper front arm forward/backward with the RWD pan cars, its been bugging me for a will now.

I understand with the rear lower arm it gives you anti swat/pro swat.

Coming from a nitro background were my car has the option to tilt upper arm forward/backward(image below).

My car is 4WD the pan car is RWD but i think the same principles will apply.

Will it give more front traction corner entry/exit
More steering response corner entry/exit
Make car easier to drive
used in high/low traction conditions

Thanks

It decreases the caster as the suspension travels, to pick up steering mid corner.
