Hi Kenny,

Why do you use always long rear arms ??

It's to have more traction ? Because I see on your setup sheet thats it's a high grip track...

Regards,
Manu

Even on a high bite track it is very helpfull to have a stable planted car, just make it steer another way

Car needs stiffer rear springs

Sup fellas.

I'm about to pick up an Mi4LP and have a few questions:

Bodies: what are you guys running/what do you recommend?

Tires/Wheels: any preferences for asphalt/parking lot tracks?

Batteries: I figured most hardpack 2S lipos (ie: Reedy) would fit, do any actually snap into those chassis holes?

I'm going to be running this in a 17.5 class at a local hobby shop, any recommendations for gearing?

Thanks in advance.

I'm running med flex ones like the rear bite they give me. Not big fan of rear shorts because the shimming needed to make width makes weaker around bulkhead and hinge pin mounting area. Its seems to be fine line of rear bite and steering with the car which I find the rear longs seem to be planted where the shorts rotate to much for me making car unstable mid run. Med flex 1st durability factor then add carbon as less flex is needed.

We run 1mm of spacers against the plastic blocks with short arms in virtually all of the UK team, so no problems there.

Okay so this is gonna sound weird but my car is set up pretty, well really good with just a base set up. I'm running outdoor asphalt on a large track and the car handles really well. 2* camber all around, stock roll center spot, no sway bars, stock springs and the biggest change ive noticed is playing with different tires.

now I'll admit I'm not great when it comes to trying different set ups because if something works, why change it? To go with that i dont know what to adjust to pick up more speed. the one thing i'm mostly looking for is mid-exit cornering. I run a spool up front with a diff in the rear and I like the way it flows but would like to see it rotate a little more . Am i only going to get that by going with a differential up front? What about more caster or Ackerman?

1mm is fine, on carpet its more like 4mm.
