the track is www.southendrccc.org its a converted off road track has alo of hills and EXTREMLY BUMPY you take the wrong line and you will find yourself in the wall.

regarding suspension would you run small pistons with thin oil and soft springs or large pistons with thick oil and soft springs or either configuration but with harder springs??

I am a local to this track and have tried lots of different things over the years but the car never actually feels 100% settled and info would really appreciate it


and what is the effect of outboard toe in hubs??

Thanks

Ricky
for suspension i would try soft springs, like maybe 2.6f and 2.4R with big bars like 1.5f and 1.4r, 3hole pistons with 400r and 500f. 5.5mm or 6mm ride height. i would think that the car would take the bumps pretty well with that suspension and be good to drive but the cornering speed could be down?.
i have never set up a car for really bumpy conditions.

You would most likely see better performance from more outboard toe over bumps. outboard toe in compairison to inboard toe will create less bind threw suspension travel. with outboard toe the rear of the car will roll more and have the tendincy to have less entry corner steering and more exit steering than the equivilent inboard amount. You must remember to take the wheelbase in to consideration, more inboard toe make the car shorter, so to test properly you should take that in to account while doing the change.

Good luck!

I know this is an ask Paul thread, but I have a quick question for EA. Hey EA we meet at the children's race in southaven. I was with rocky, bonadona and you let me have a 98 tooth spur gear. I plan on racing at beat the heat in the 17.5 blinky class and was wondering what fdr you would recommend for a duo3 and tekin esc. I hear the track will be pretty big and I have no clue what gear to use. Thanks Man

Any comments on your Reedy setup? It's very...unconventional I'd like to know more about what you were wanting the car to do and things you would change if you had it to do over again. Thanks!

Hi. the set up was good, my result was 7th but the car was capible of better. It had good forward bite and made very nice carousels, it did lack a touch of low speed tight steering which i was never able to get at the race. i will be starting with that set up at the ETS final next month, hopefully with a nother race under my belt i can round up the last necissary adjustments, but right now i dont know for sure what they are. possibly a thinner rear Gear diff setting to help the car rotate a touch more?

Did u really run 2.6F spring and 3.2R spring or was that a mistake? That's what the setup sheet shows.

The set up sheet shows 4 hole pistons. Is that what you were using, or was it just left blank accidentally?
See ya in Jackson. :P

LOL, even i wouldnt go that far. glad it worked good for you guys too.

I think that we are finding that LG1 makes the best cleaner BC its aggressive and lets lg2 work best as the sauce, LG1 wipe'd in and LG2 applied thin to air dry. Kinda like how on carpet it seems to be best to clean with sauce as opposed to motor spray or some true degreaser.

Thanks
