on the manual... 1.5mm shim on the sus holder. but I feel 2mm or 2.25mm shim on the sus holder more turn in when the enter the coner..
Am I feel wrong..?
can you tell me the differece ? when use 1.5mm and 2.25 mm. or none of use..
2. and If i change the damper position.. do i have to change the damper spring..?
3. Many drivers ( tamiya , hot bodies etc..) use same damper spring front and rear ,(world championship, TITC, some of out door race ).. but I found many Xray driver use different damper spring ( more stiffer spring on the front) .. Is it car different ?or driver different..?
4. and do you drive same set-up when you running 13.5 and mod..?
1: what you are talking about with mooving the suspension arm wider and narrowing the hub is a pretty big change, i do think that it would make the car more reactive entering the corner, but mainly because of the narrower hex spacing. when you change the distance between the center of the tire and the Knuckle screw (steering pivot or "Scrub set") it makes a big difference.
If you were just mooving the shock more outboard on the suspension arm you would want to consitter changing the spring. the closer the shock mount is to the outer hinge pin the stiffer the spring and oil will be.
2: No, but In a perfect world Yes because you would know that your oil to spring is perfect to begin with and you would know to make it a bit thicker for a stiffer spring.. if you do go stiffer spring and not oil the suspension will rebound faster and could cause ill handling, but i dont always do that.
3: I have never used a HB car or Tamiya car so i dont really know, but i have noticed the same thing. their are no major design difference on a hb and tamiya that would make the front of the car much stiffer compaired to a Xray. maybe they know something that i dont but i can never seen to do the same spring all around, especially lately.
4: Yea, i just drive harder with 13.5 because you can but i approach the corners the same and all.

2. Is it true that Baker is secretly dating Opti-Mom?
Hi. yes, i feel like narrowing the car from the hex can keep the car more stable while being narrow as apposed to narrowing the car feom the suspension mounts which shortens your rear camber link and your pin spacing.
2. lol Barry better not be cheating on Lori, Laurie (spelling).

Hi Shaun, the 50c packs have been really great for me in mod and especially 12th I havent tested it in 13.5. I think that their could bea point to where the extra discharge rate dosent help in the spec classes because the amp draw just isnt their. second run on the day it will run faster, i think that goes for almost any lipo.

Hunter and I was wondering what are you using right now for preference.
See ya next week.
Hi, glad to hear that you are making it down again!. I will be running the speed6, i kinda think that the LTCR will be the body of choice if not here but for sure in the future. for the novak i will be on the speed6 but i will start running with the LTCR soon.
