rcdougie-From what I see with your set-up that you will have more roll in the rear of the car because you have the front upper arms in the lower hole(higher roll center) and the rear upper arms in the upper hole(lower roll center). Try moving either the rear down or the front up. Experiment both ways. Also by you using the inner hole on the hubs, the link is short, this will reduce chassis roll. Everything else seems ok. What is your droop settings?

I would rate the track's traction as medium to high. Its a smooth surface and has been treated with soda. My droop settings were 2, both front and rear using an associated droop gauge. Again, thanks guys for the help. Everyone in here is very helpful and doesnt hesitate to lend a hand. As a matter of fact just about everyone that I know that has a mission has been helpful locally too, just nobody around here is running a locked diff.

Unless you are running very low foams I would say your droop settings may be way off, with full sized tires at 5mm ride height your actual uptravel is something like 6 or 7 mm... Try this for setting your droop...... set the rideheight, now set the chassis on the rideheight guage at a detting 2mm above your ride height, now adjust your droop screws so that the tires just touch the ground, now you have a setting of 2mm actual droop.

The problem with guages like the associated piece is that as your ride height canges the droop settings change with it, so when running foams as the tires wear you actaully loose droop, so a new set of foams will handle erratically different from a well used set.

Try a droop setting of 4mm front and 3mm rear using droop gauge. Running a spool diff is not always faster. Depends on the track, layout, etc. So you may go faster with a one-way. That will have to be your determination with practice runs and lap times.

Pulleys will be in right at the end of the month. Just in time to throw foams on your cars and get ready for Cleveland!

Mission owners, which side are your outdrive grub screws on? I installed the diffs like the manual says(left diff cover on left side of car) but now each diff bolt is facing opposite direction to the other.

They need to be that way to prevent pressure to loosen them. Think about it. In simple terms the rear diff is driven from the bottom and the front diff is driven from the top.

Thought some of you guys might be interested in these parts.

We're going to be selling graphite roll center plates for the Mission. Made from 2mm carbon fiber plate. These RCP's raise the front inner hinge pins, you guessed it, 2mm http://home.attbi.com/~teamprp/missionRCP.html

We also have a transponder mount that fits well onto the upper deck behind the motor and it doesn't get in the way of the upper deck screws. http://home.attbi.com/~teamprp/transpondermount.html

Both of these will be available first week of November and pricing will be finalized very soon.

Since we're on the subject of raised roll center, what have you that have performed this mod changed on your set up to get the most out of it? Also, does this mod perform best on asphalt or carpet surfaces?


PRP,
parts look good! I'll be getting these.

Adrian,
Where are the RW parts ( ie., part #s for online ordering) listed on the web site?

Where can I find set-up sheets form the american drivers ? I am specifically looking for foam on carpet set-ups. All the schui site has are european drivers. Alos if anyone could give a point in the right direction on a carpet set-up for a small track thats far from smooth, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Default Axles for Axis

Does anyone know of a conversion for the MIP CVD style steel axles for the Axis, or the mission. The steel axles bind when I turn the wheel and the plastic ones keep breaking the pins out . Its really frustrating. Can someone please help.
