Thats a good question, honestly i dont have a great answer for you. i do think it works differently from a 4wd car. it seems like a very simple question that i should know, but i dont lol. I assume that the car would be smoother getting in to the corner but looser coming off.

im sure someone with more 12th scale testing could elaborate. sorry

I added weight to try to balance but it did not seem to cure the problem. I was wondering if you could share how you add weight to your car? Car is so close to being hooked up and has tons of steering just need to get this right. Thanks for any help.
I ballance my car with lead by using the Hudy ballancing pins, i normally run a extra weight adjacent to the motor on the battery side to help also. then i would set the ride height, then i put the car on a tweak station and adjust the collard untill the bubble is centered, then last i set the droop by hand lifting the car from the center of the chassis untill the tires come off the ground at the same time. if this is all right and the car still drives tweaked it is most likely that the camber is off, bad tire somewhere, chassis or bulkhead is bent, ect. but i would think a proper ballance (left right) and tweak job should take care of it.

Hope this helps

Thanks guys, when will you be at trackside?

Also the rear end is grabbing really hard, Do you think if I ran thicker oil in gear diff would help?

Any idea's what I can do to make car run smoother and keep tire down ?
Hi, the gear diff will make the car harder to drive especially on power, i suggest going to a lighter fluid in it, I ran 450. also i would make the ackermann post shorter "notches". the shorter that arm the less on throttle steering you will have, also the ECS drive shafts in the front might help.

let me know if you find anything, Thanks

Thanks,

Alex

Not going to lie...i think it would be really cool to meet a pro who races remote control cars for money and also more kits that u can build...and also having awesome sponsors and sharing with fellow racers and fans about your sponsors too aswell as some sneak peaks of new products haha...just saying :P...well i hope sometime we run into eachother! I live in Waukesha County...and going to WCTC for graphic design!

Was your setup the same when you revisited this track or did you change something from the Reedy race?

Hey Paul,

I've been drilling my shock cap with a .030" bit. I think it might be too small. What size hole do you use?

accually no, i came with my reedy car straight from that race but i ran my worlds car instead. the two cars are very similar but the worlds car has 2hole suspension arms on it. I will post the set up sheet here shortly.

I Think .030 would be fine. as long as it isnt a pin hole i dont think it matters much.

Hey Paul, Lately I have been trying to see if i should add camber to my r/c drift car and i think the droop is fine...but i was wondering how droop and also camber, would effect the car and what the reasons are behind it...i wanted to add camber to my TT01 Drift car, because i think i would get better handling out of it...so i wanted to see maybe if you could help me set my camber...and what it does and how it effects the car... thanks Paul! Maybe u should make one of ur old on-roads into a drift car...its soo much fun watching them get sideways like D1 Grand Prix cars! I have drifted in video games such as GRID..it has really helped me out with my angles ! http://www.youtube.com/TwitchVids if you wanted to see them! Make sure you browse them in Firefox because it buffers a lot better than IE does...so yeah...thanks Paul! You can shoot me a pm with the answer or you can just post it on the forums for other newbies like me...i have been racing off-road and im still learning how to properly set-up my drift car...it is a shaft driven car so...just to let you know!

I think the "Think Responsibly" line made me laugh the most.
