Casey did you get my email? When are you coming to RCO again or are you a carpet guy again?

Are you running a Stratus on your 414M2? If so what one are you running?

Later

Default TRUE worlds set-up

This is why you flip the block over so the belt passes under the block.....
Only do this when it is at a height around the "true" worlds setup...

What happens if no spacers at all were inserted below the blocks, would the traction be very very good?

Jenny, you are correct, if no spacers are in the roll center is low, therefore providing the lowest CG for weight transfer, that means traction,
If you guys have Extreme RC car magazine look up issue # OCT 2001 pg 90

Casey are you running saddle packs in your M2? I did the mods to run saddle packs. I think it is alot better that way.

Casey are you running the new yellow rimed TRC tires and if so do you trim the back of them so they don't run on the front ball ends? Mine just barely hit and will trim the ball ends a little and also the back of the rims some. Not a big problem and I'm glad as most cars are setup for rubber tires and since they are narrower the rims never rub.

i now feel completely sure it,s gotto be a chassis drilling fault however unlikely it is !!

On a car costing this much i must say i,m more than alittle disapointed
Cheapest solution:
Notice there are 2 kind of holes in the rear knuckle/uprights? (uprights with bearing's face facing you). Drill those two until you have acces to suspension shaft, no need all the down to the other side. Now put pinion kind of screw and adjust (tighten one, loosen the other) them until left and right suspension toe-in are at the same amount. This method also solve some sloops problems around rear uprights. Yes, your susp. shaft will have mark for screw but it wont matter.

About the worlds setup, It's very stable on most ashpalt. I do urge you to try it, just do not forget to dremel the susp. arms to where they will touch oneway joint cup for front or the delrin cup for rear.

Pic inc. you you can get a feel for the size of the cube (it,s very small indeed).I,ve run it with motors down to a 2x8 on high grip carpet so it was pulling some amps through that poor speedo
