sidecarphil1, shoot me an email at topracingusa@yahoo.com let's see if we can figure out what's wrong with your ARP.

some problems can be caused by some issues when building!! first thing make sure all of your suspension arms move freely when shocks are not on. second make sure that all your shocks are equal in rebound. Third make sure that your stabiliser mounts are all equal and that when you put on the arm mount it moves freely as well. and last make sure the car is not tweaked. This means if your droop is set correct under the arms then if you lift up the front end from the center then both wheels should lift off equally. If not you need to adjust your rear springs to compensate. screw up one side and loosen the other slightly. Repeat this for the rear. When finished try car on the track!! if problems are fixed then happy racing. and if you notice your springs are wound very differently side to side then use this to help equal out the weight balance. when weight balance is correct then this should equal out the springs side to side. Also remember that your car after having big crashes will need to be rechecked again for tweak or just loosen and re-tighten your chassis. hope this is helpful.

This is essentially what the spec of the 2 chassis will be.

Foam Spec car.
Essentially this car has extra bracing to stiffen the chassis.
It has a 3mm chassis and 2.5mm top deck.
1.4mm stabiliser bars
Front shock spring 560gf/mm . 31.3 lb/in
Rear shock spring 306gf/mm . 17.1 lb/in
Front ball diff.








Rubber Spec car.
Does not use the stiffening posts as the Foam Spec car.
This chassis has a 2.5mm chassis and a 2mm top deck for more flex to generate traction.
1.2mm stabiliser bars.
Front shock spring 344gf/mm . 19.2 lb/in
Rear shock spring 306gf/mm . 17.1 lb/in
Front spool.

Kevin Jelich (Reedy Race Open Champion) told me he ran that combo because it had the strong fan and it ran cooler.

A Tekin in a TOP. Best combo ever.
I drive a Tekin RS Pro in my TOP and it's going verry good.
Have tested today an other setup and i loved it.
Car is even better than last month. So i hope that i will beat my personal record.
