I'm going to try and get there to run more this week.
I was just at CH this past Sunday, the track is so bad right now. The grip from last yrs SIGP is gone and my car looked worse off the carpet than if I'd run on the dirt. I love that track but it gets so little use that its not worth making the drive down anymore.

When we went one of the guys vacuumed the track before we showed up. Thanks Turd!

We then ran or WGT cars a bunch and would normally add sauce 2-3 times per run on the first few battery charges. By the end of the day the grip was pretty reasonable. On the second day we were just getting it to where I was willing to run mod then the Offroad guys showed up and started sweeping the dirt track. That put lots of dirt in the air and immeadiately the grip started going back down. When we came back in on Saturday all the work we had done was gone.

A lot of guys were using yellow rears last season around here. Not sure what they had up front. Magenta maybe ?

I raced at two tracks. Some how I ended up with black front/grey rear at both. Very smooth but still responsive. May try a set on this car. But yes Im thinking about trying a softer set. Maybe pink frt/r ? I tried pink on the rear at one track and couldn't drive it. Way too lose. Didnt try them at the other track so not sure if it was just the carpet or not.

Hopfully a buddy (hint,hint J.O.) will show up and then i will have a few sets to test? Plus hes pretty fast so I can use him as a gauge. Dont have any other springs so Im stuck with stock for now. Will let you know what I find.

I really tried to get this car to look clean. No matter what I did it still looked.....messy. So this time I just slammed everything down low to clear the body and called it a day.

Threads are usless with out pics .

Looks good part time, nice paint scheme. The only thing I'm wondering about is the front steering rods, thay look flat and not on the same plane as the a-arms. This can cause bumpsteer if I remember correctly.

Thanks

The last time I drove it I was thinking of adding a shim or two to see how much it would need.

I just got this car. I have 3 packs on it. It was not new either. Im slow to tune so it will take me a few weeks to get it dialed in.

DK,

I think the car looks nice but if you're not happy one thing you might try is to rotate the battery to the other side, this way you can shorten the main battery wires and they can all stay on the same side of the car instead of crossing under the center shock. I think that might look .2 tenths better

Who painted the body?

Steve

I was looking through the 2009 snowbird pictures and come across some pictures of the new 10r5 oval pod installed on a 12r5.
One picture is of the 10r5 oval and one of the pod on a 12r5
This looks great and would be a better option to upgrade too instead off the standard 10r5 wide pod.
Any news on when the oval will be released? Parts should been available soon after.

I think it would take some re-engineering to get the pod to work in a 12th. In particular to attach the side shock as the 10r5 uses two side shocks. I would bet the part in the pic was a prototype/one-off.

I have been testing and testing and testing my 12r5 with lipo on med bite carpet and have found some success. With the lack of info on LiPo set ups I thought I might get the ball rolling by posting what I have found works for me in 17.5 and 13.5 1 cell. I'd love to hear what anyone else has experienced.

FRONT
.20 BMI springs(~.18 AE equivalent) only use 2 shims on top of kingpin.
0 reactive castor
2 mm of spacers between upper arm mount and bulkhead (effectively lengthening the upper arm)
both spacers to the back for static castor ~6-7*?
4 mm RH
9650 Servo w/201 Kimbrough Med SS and balls mounted in lowest holes.
Jaco Dbl pinks 42 mm
.60" of spacers on axle behind wheel
2* camber
0* toe

MIDDLE
4 mm RH
3 mm droop spacer in center shock (1 mm shorter than std)
#2 shock mount (1=bottom, 4=top)
30 wt ae oil in center shock
black AE spring in center shock
std length AE ball cup threaded all the way onto shock. Gives 2-3* of droop
blue side springs all the way up.
20 wt side shock oil

REAR
4 mm RH
Jaco Yellows 44 mm
172 mm axle width
centered BL pod

Parma Speed8HD body
SpeedPassion 13.5 w/84 mm rollout with 26* timing in SpeedPassion esc
4.5' circles
Full paragon F and R
SMC 1 cell LiPo
Spektrum Micro Receiver
Novak Booster

Hopefully I didn't leave anything out.

Hang tite for just a little while, an announcement should be coming in the near future. The motor plates will bolt directly onto the lower graphite but will require a new upper plate and a new cross brace tube.
