3mm is stiffer than 2.5.there are a few different types of c/f.you have 0,90 deg.,0,90,45 deg.,carbon kevlar,and colored c/f.they are all available in different weaves.the ones i use (BMI Racing)is colored c/f fine weave layed at 0,90,45 deg. and black layed at 0,90,45 deg.
they all are good for different applications.the only one i dont like is kevlar c/f.it is abrasive as hell and not very stiff.it is abrasion resistant but it has very similar qualities of fiberglass.

Default QUESTIONS

1. what do you use to remove the anodizing? Will oven spray cleaner work? Will do a TC3 project and want all the components to be in silver!!.

2. Can I also mill a team chassis even if its composite? If the flex will be too much, by adding an uper deck solve this?



carkillaii
Buy both the BMI and WARP, so you won't confuse yourself anymore

You won't go wrong with either!! Peace to U and Happy Racing!

Is this 'missing' weave apparent with the Yok Black CF chassis?

I often wondered why the SSG chassis was so 'flexi'.

Randman, maybe that's part of the reason why I've had so little problem what tweak on my Warp cars. The Upper decks DID come with countersunk screw holes.

Default Stock setup

Hey all

I was just wondering what tips and tricks you all use to get the most from the your setup assuming everything is free and running smooth and you have the best possible speed when racing 27thurn and 19turn

So should I use 0 degrees toe front and rear to get the most straight line speed and go softer on your tyres and then 0 degrees Antisquat to help traction under acceleration out of the corner
{ assuming the track is flat }

just so you know I run a TC3
so help with this particular chassis is appreciated

Default Shocks suck!

I was wanting to know how often everybody re-builds the shocks. I've been having to re-build mine about every race weekend. They lose their rebound which I notice when I try to check my droop.

Are you losing oil from the o rings at the bottom of the shock cos you shouldnt be losing oil really

check the top of the shock for that seal too cos the leak has to be one end

well I just took the shocks apart and they were clean around them and not hardly any air in the oil either.

More important that what is in the shock is what is outside. Is the arm or area around the lower shock mount covered in oil? If your losing the rebound the oil has to be going somewhere.

Id rebuild the shocks using a liberal amount of green slime on a set of new o-rings and see what happens.
