Paul, thanks again for the help with Jason's setup for Trackside. It is always a pleasure to race there see you and get a little help. Jason was really excited to make the B main in 17.5 with the Xray.

Hope to see you soon, Keith and Jason.

Hi Martin.
I sometimes use the rear facing body posts, i feel like it gives me more rear traction. i mount a front body post facing out the back on to the lower hole in the tower (where the plastic peg press's in for the standard post location). then i use 2 or 3 of the aluminum 1.5mm suspension mount shimms and a longer screw (shimming the post out) so the post is shorter and ubsiquently stiffer in the end.
Then the real challange is to drill the holes carefully in the body, so start with a clear body for sure.

Thanks

thanks i maybe try it out was just wondered what it did.

do you have some advice how to take grip out of the car for high grip tracks?
if i try to raise the roll center as Xray recommend (on lower suspention arm) i get more traction rolling over the front end into the corner.

thanks for your advice.

Hey Paul,

I was wondering if there if you think there will be any noticable difference between 50 and 52mm ECS driveshafts when running 13.5 or 17.5 on rubber tires on carpet? And if so what it is. (no one has the 52mm's in stock and a would imagine the ECS vs. non would make a big difference or maybe a .1 or .2 possibly, but I didnt not how much it would be offset by not having the proper driveshaft length).

Thank you very much,
Mark Strasnick

Hey Paul,
Marriage is awesome if you like who you married.
Some guys don't seem to.

I was wondering if you have an existing setup posted somewhere that you would recommend as a starter for this track.
I want the car to pivot more especially at the end of that straight.

Just in case you don't have enough on your plate with the Novak this weekend...
Dave.

When the bite is really high a high roll center can give more traction.
i struggle on really high bite carpet or asphalt with steering some times, and also look for ways to free up the rear. as for traction i would say that softer springs and oil might take some bite away, normally anything stiff drives really reactive but then pushes really bad and can hurt the tires also on asphalt.

thanks.

Hi Mark, how you been?. the reason why i run the 52's is for duribility, with my wide front pin set-up the 50's are out in the drive cup pretty good and will break the plastic spool cups pretty easy so i run the 52's. Now i have the aluminum spool outdrives so i think i will start running the 50's, i think the 50's might have more steering.
