I am also using the McKune chassis, last week I had a softer setup but changed it yesterday to Brians setup under Troys advise. I looks like it may carry more speed through the corners than my old setup did. I am using the Sophia body right at 104mm height and am about 3 mm too high on the wing so I am getting lots of downforce


I am using a Novak 13.5 with my RS Pro and a Thunder Power 3.7 40C. I am geared 37 pinion and 94 spur with 2.04 tires. I backed off the timing on the motor one notch and put in 15 degrees of boost thinking it may give me more punch and it seems to work. I am running Max Turbo with a .5 delay and 43 Drag Brake. The Turbo is coming in 1/4 of the way into the straightaway as we have a sweeper into the straight now and you can carry some speed into it. The end of the straight has a chicane and the drag brake rotates the car around pretty smoothly if I back off about seven to eight feet from the end.

I am staying with the 2S 21.5 guys for now but they are not using boosting type speed controls.

Whether or not the ESC is directly behind (good traction/carpet) or on the side (low traction/asphalt) is an option in my mind.

Hey Bill
Whats the advantage of moving the battery forward, or mounting the esc in the center?

Have the battery forward for stock motor racing and back for mod racing...ala input from 1/12th scalers I suppose.

Mounting the ESC in the center allows for faster weight transfer on carpet. Whereas, on most asphalt tracks, I am typically looking for more weight transfer; so, the ESC is often placed to one side with the other electronics to the other side.

Xray springs work. I'm using the light blue one (17.5 lb.)

I use an Associated Blue (17#) or an Purple (30#).

Usually have the Blue for asphalt (smooth) and Purple for carpet (smooth).

I run the associated springs. Currently on carpet I have been running the blue 17.5 lb. spring. If I need more steering coming out of corners I will stiffen it up. I believe the stock black spring is 25 lb. or 30 lb. depending on when you bought your kit.

Default Fron Ride Height adjustment

Hi,

AFAIK there is Calandra Ride Height Spacers at 3, 4 and 5mm. And there is Calandra Precision Front Ride Height Adjusters. Is it all options for front? Is there any other methods to adjust front height? For rear I know there is IRS Ride Height Adjusters. Maybe something with similar steps is for front?

Default Better turning

Hi,

now I have standard setup. Our carpet track is not big ~25x10 meters with many turns. Machine is good but I would like to get more turning. What changes do I have to do to get more turning? Thank you.

The combination of the 3/4/5mm spacers and the precision adjusters will handle all issues at the front. And the IRS precision adjuster will take care of the rear. You are good.

i like the look of that chassis, but the one thing i'd really like to see is the ability to bolt the suspension in the front directly to the chassis without the added width plates.. they are just one more point of failure and the extra weight only slows the front end turn-in.. might have to pick one up regardless..

?? added width plates?? the McKune chasis is a direct "bolt on" upgrade to the stock CRC chasis.

Has Troy modified the chassis so the lower arms mount directly to the chassis? Mine isn't that way.

I think he's saying he would prefer to have the chassis with the mounting holes in it; ie, widened in the front to eliminate the plate with the three mounting positions for wheelbase length.
