Go to Tony Phalens site for great setups.

If there is any tinkering, it is usually to adjust to individual driving style. Only you can do that. Just make one change at a time and see what you like.

I run his setup on carpet. I only changed the front tires to plaid and added a rear swaybar. I am not skilled enough to handle as much steering as T.

How close does your rear shock springs come to the cvd? I'm building another TC3 and I dont remember this on my old one.

I use composite CVD's and the springs almost touch the CVD's. The do not touch through out the entire range of motion however.

i also have composite cvd's that are very close to the rear springs. i just add a couple of washers on the screw that holds the lower ball end for more clearance. or put the rear hub spacers in the rear position (short wheelbase position) but this may slightly affect handling if youre using the standard or long wheelbase setup.

I ended up using a small spacer to move the shock out a little. I never remembered doing this on my old one though.

I think it is a question of very close tolerances rather than an actual problem. The springs on my FT come ever so close to the cvd's without actually touching.

maybe the newer cvd's are thicker. i think both the aluminum and composite cvds were slightly increased in diameter to resist breaking
