I definitely haven't driven mine for a long time either. It will be really nice to drive on some asphalt. You will really like the Timezone track. Let me know what I can do to help.

Anyone need a new 6cell chassis and/or a lipo chassis? I'm trying to get rid of mine.

The first day of the Reedy I used my 2010 setup and it worked fairly well. My lap times were decent and on pace. However as the grip came up my lap times stayed the same and everyone went faster. After feeling other racers cars, I concluded my car was under sprung and under dampened for the high grip level.

Lap times were a touch faster and the car was much easier to drive. It also finished the turn a lot better than my previous setup. I just needed to drive better.. LOL

Some things to note on the setup:

- 1.0mm 3 hole pistons
- 1.0mm hole drilled in the top of the shock cap
- After filling the shock, I seal the bladder with the piston all the way down. Due to the hole in the cap there is no rebound in the shock.
- Outside shock hole on the front arm
- 367 front and 324 rear
- Neg 2.5 Camber on the setup gauge, about Neg 1.5 on the wheel.
- Outside hole on rear hub

Anyway give it a shot. Part of the fun of racing is trying different things!

Hi EJ, the sheet lists 1.0 2 hole pistons, but u mention 1.0 3 hole please confirm?

Also, your setup does not indicate you ackerman position?

Just want to thank my local TOP Racing team mates - The GOAT, Jerry P from Guatemala, and Larry for their help today. I have a feeling that TOP will have a strong showing at the upcoming ROAR Nats... (with or without manning down to run a slower class..)

Good racing today FJ. Good job layin the smack in the main. After a 2 week low in the HP department I just happy to finally figure out what my problem was.

On a side note Larry's TOP Rebel was lookin pretty dialed in practice

FJ laying smack with the red back white front car that started 2nd. Goat getting smacked on the first lap again.

And Jerry P getting 3rd.

FJ didn't run his 17.5 car until the first round. Our tried and true setup that works on carpet works on asphalt.

I'm happy to say my boy FJ threw it down. his car looked awesome. Goat's car was fast and i was somewhere in the middle. it was good to actually run the main after my radio issues last week.

EJ you out there paying attention?
