No, adding anti squat will help the car square up coming out of the corner on power.

The car is really good at my locak track. Really good turn in and rear rotation. It is a bit loose on power exiting but this weekend I might lean in the rear shocks or add some anti squat.
Thanks AdrianM-Just curious. Heard your car is pretty good with that set-up. I tried it last weekend at SoCal. Car was a little undrivable. I want to try that set-up outdoor. Kind of leary though since I'm doing so well with Paul's set-up. I will set it up maybe on my spare car.

Use a small piece of shrink tube to fit between the mounts.shrink it on the swaybar this works great to take away side to side play without adding weight.

On a somewhat tight 120'x70' track I run ~8.28:1 final drive with a 10T Mod. This is with 63mm Take Off CS27GL's.

It all depends on if you're using 64p or 48p

64p- 124/27
48p- 95/21

These are gearings that work for me at a couple of tracks in my area. Is your track open, tight?

Speaking of gearing... I'm running 48p in a Mission1... mid size carpet track, running stock motors, foam tires.... any idea on where to start on gearing?

Thanks!

Default Freeing the drive train

Now i'm torn as to where to be this weekend. Most of the guys here (orlando) sound like they are going space coast. And from what i'm reading you guys are going speedline :-(. Either way,
I'm trying to free up my drive train a litle more since i have to back in my spool for this sunday and was wondering what tricks can you guys recommened for freeing it up. Right now as you guys now the dt is pretty free out of the box but i'm looking for that extra edge.

So what do you say? trim teeth on the rear belt? Remove shield from all my bearings? what is the prefered method here?

R.

This is just my opinion. As long as the drivetrain isn't binding and is nice and smooth, I don't think making it spin like some of those shaft drive's you see that guys get to spin forever will really do much good. As long as there's nothing dragging and binding, I'd say you're fine.
