What is the track like? Is it open/tight or large/small? Are there lots of tight switchbacks or is it a roval? All of these things matter when measuring rollout. I'd start with a 28mm rollout and tune from there.

Do exactly what you said and cross your fingers that you don't loose cells.

when i said "hot out of the factory" i mean, just out of the factory, not that my cells where actually hot as far as i know there isnt a problem with the cells just wondering what is the best way to store them before the next race

cheers for the help

Build them, discharge them and then charge them fully at 4amps. Repeak (3 or 4amps) once a week you don't run them.


Ran my "big track" setup this weekend and the car was dialed! Made a few changes for the extreme tempature:

-2-hole pistons (drilled 1.2mm)
-40wt oil with Hybrid o-rings (35wt if you have stock o-rings)
-New med/flex rear arms

Been working on a rubber/Carpet setup, We'll see how good it is in Vegas.
I'll have the rest of the Team there to help and depending on how good it is, I'll make sure its posted.
