As you can see the lipo is mounted well forward, giving the car good weight distribution, which has resulted in a very consistent car during the entire 6min run, usually only .2 to .4s drop from start to finish.
To move the lipo as far forward as possible in the standard configuration 2mm shims were added under the front shock mount.
Inline axles provide the most steering possible from my experience with this car thus far.
The rest of the setup is essentially kit
40wt center, red spring
80wt side, gold spring
Pod flat, 1mm droop
.020" front springs, no droop
52mm BSR Spec tires Fr & Rr
Powered by MurfDogg 13.5 Synergy: 10deg timing, 92roll
MurfDogg SuperCharger 60C 1s lipo
In "Club Race" format the car weighs in at 890gr
Haven't seen many pics of 10R5's here lately
Looking damn fine....! Wanna go that way also!
Hope my car gets through customs fast and with no difficulties. Can't wait to get my hands on it!
- 2 mm shims under the front shock mount you say. You mean partnumber 4655 shock mount brace? It is bolted on the chassisplate with two bolts. Do you mean shims just under one of them?! Can't imagine that. It would not be flat on the chassisplate anymore then. Or am I completely wrong here...?
How many mm added in total? 2mm total
- what is "inline axles"? Special AE part? If so, what partnumber?
- as to short wheelbase. There are three holes on the arm mount plate. You mean you use the one most to the rear of the car?
- any polishing of upper hinge pin and king pin? Or otherwise?
- as to LiPo as far forward as possible: any use for the battery index, partnumber 4610? Or not used at all?
- which body?
- do you use the foam bumper?
- how many diffballs used?
- how much caster?
- You say:"The rest of the setup is essentially kit".
* kit setup says sidedamper 30wt. You use 80wt. Much thicker. Analysed several setupsheets at petitrc. All the guys seem to use 30wt to 40wt. On occassion 50wt. So why so much thicker?
* kit setup says frontsprings .018". You use .020". Reason? Bit less agressive on the steering I think.
- 890gr is including body? So race ready?
- using AE green slime on the O-rings of the shocks? Anything to say on leaking of the shocks?
- why the transponder on the servo and not in the front?
- what pinion and spur, 48P or 64P?
- chamfered edges of the chassisplate and CA on the edges?
- using threadlock, and if so where? For instance bolts screwed in metal parts.
- using grease on the kingpins for dampening effect?
- any upper eyelet mods needed? (with dremel)
- any steering block mods needed? (with dremel)
- standard pivot balls for front suspension or special teflon coated, for instance from IRS?
So there is more to think about, then we all thought of, now isn't it!
