If you haven't already got the standard ver.II kit then this would be a great place to start, it has most of the popular hop ups included in the kit.

Just add universals and your choice of aluminum suspension blocks and you're good to go.

Chris,

Where do you get your bodies from. Most of the US sources I know of are out of them. Looking for the Ebbro.

By the way, I ran the motor and speedo you sold me last night at practice and they work great.

Thanks
Andy

Good to hear!

I got the one from Speedtech RC. You can always call Trackside in WI to see if they have any... And last resort is eBay.

Sending you PM

Hey guys i have a question. So My problem is that when coming out of a turn my car looses rear grip (on power). I am racing at a med to large (Nor Cal Hobbies) carpet track with rubber tires. Here is some of my settings

tires: T.O.P solaris softs at all corners
TRF shocks / white Tamiya springs
solid front axle
blue sway bar up front
red sway in rear
about 4.8mm ride height f&r
1 degree of toe in front rear is stock
I think I have 2 degrees of camber up front and 3 at the rear
17.5 /tekin rs
Also I have the rear shocks in the outer position on the bottom and the top i have them as far in as they can go.
Any suggestions ???

Try Tamiya short white up front and long blue in the rear and lay them down.

Oh and 0 toe.

Also make sure your rear diff isn't too tight. I also notice your running lots of camber and front toe-in which is different from most cars I've seen. Of course I'm no pro...

Thanks for such quick replies. The diff is already pretty loose I might be able to get a few more turn out of it though.
I will try those springs have to order them though.
As far as my camber and toe settings, I was going by the x-ray manual and some other online sources posted earlier in the tread and that is what I came up with. Also the box stock set up was super slick I found that these helped a lot with grip but I am a noober so I could be very wrong. I will try that 0 toe

This may sound noobie but "dope tires, full front and rear." I am not sure what that means.
