just went out to the garage and checked on a old yok GT-4, it has the same hubs, i believe the guy i got the yok from told me that he bought the mugen hubs cause they were marked cheaper then the yok hubs, anyway, long story short, i have four more, if you can't find a set, i can send you a couple. they do require a couple of of yokomo axle shims cause they are flat on the inside and there is play.

congrats to everyone piloting a schuie to the top at the various local and regional events this weekend.

thanks mcgoo, randy, kling, liehr, etc. i should have put down a top ten 19t run as well, but some bad luck, combined with bad execution kept that just out of reach.

again, some setup tweaks were made from the last one posted (halloween). i think this car was the best one i've had (between vegas, halloween, and cleveland). it was the most balanced. here's a list of the bigger changes:

narrow front hexes (no spacers) - made the car transition quicker
high diffs - made the car lazier, which i found worked well with the narrow front hexes.
higher rear oil - increased turn-in speed and accuracy. probably should have re-tested this a while ago.

encouraging note: this setup was tweaked at the gate over the warm-up period while grip was near that of cleveland. this was the first time i've ever gone to a big race and NOT had to change a thing. not even my dual rate. this came in handy, as i missed the first day of practice (work ), but able to set my car down, and match hot laps on my second round on the track. that was also due, in part, to the very basic layout. still though, that was a nice bonus.

take a look, play around. i think this setup would have been even better on a layout that would have demanded more from a car. as it was, we needed the cars to wrap the 180's, and that was it. twitchy, lazy, it didn't really matter as long as all four tires were on the ground and you could hook the hairpins.

Major props Chris. Wish I could have been there to watch. Sounds like you put on quite a show!

On another note Shawn just posted that the Speed Passion ESC, and the new 10.5 and 13.5 just came in for testing. Here's hoping for the best. What a great time to be in the Schumacher Camp!

Yes, it was Anti-Squat, do you think I should run 2.5mm RC?
I also use 1.5 Deg Camber all round and was on Pre-built RP24's and Sorex 28's.
Forgot to mention, I also have the 2.5mm chassis at the moment.
Would the medium flex wishbones help?

IMO, going to the 2mm chassis, med flex or the Mi2 arms and making the changes I mentioned earlier all would help keep the car more stable. And yes, run the 2.5mm roll center to lower it. This should give more rear grip. Anti squat allows the car to transfer more weight forward under braking and less weight to the back under acceleration, giving more steering all around. If you're spinning out, you need to take that out first.

Awesome run Seaball!

revisting...

Just for comparison purposes...


What are people running for rollcenter running rubber tires/carpet? 1.5mm, 2mm, or more?
