Default Carpet towers

I don't have these yet how important are they if the setup I am putting on the car calls for them? Using Jon Kerr's setup from the Tamiya track to start.

The biggest reason for using the carpet towers i so you can use the TRF shocks. If you don't have them go a head and run the stock ones with the stock shocks and make sure you use the same shock mounting holes. Also on the camber links on the front, I think the stock tower only has 4 mounting holes instead of the 6 that the carpet have. Use the top row, inside hole for the front.

That setup I sent you was what I usually run outdoors. It actually didn't work well at Tamiya at all but it has worked everywhere else I've run it. Let me know how it works and if you need any help with it.

Actually, the stock front tower shock holes are very different from the carpet tower. Rear was almost the same, but front was waayy different... one had outer hole almost in the same location where the other had inner hole. Of course I can't remember by heart which way they were... I think the carpet tower had front shocks more laid down.

I know they're a bit different, what I should have said was make sure you use the closest corresponding upper mount. The best thing though would be to use the carpet towers when you can get a hold of them. Sorry for the confusion.

Don, Are you using the macro mode for the close ups? It should be used for anything 12" or less from the camera - it is usually marked with something that looks like a flower.

No I wasn't. Didn't know about that. Will try that next time, thanks.

Got the chassis on Friday. Thanks.

Yup, I was sure _you_ knew that, but not so sure about the guy you tried to help
I just looked at them last night @ home and the outmost hole on carpet tower is somewhere between inner and middle hole on stock tower. Middle and inner holes on carpet tower are obviously more laid down than the stock tower permits.
Of course, you could always drill 1-2 more holes to the stock tower, if you have the tools and want more laid down front shocks...

Default Roll centers

If I run the low roll centers in front by removing the riser is there anything else I need to do? Saw an old setup by PW that said must use straps across front mounts I do not have the carpet towers.

If you remove the lower plate, you must replace the plate with 1.5mm or the Schumacher black 1.6mm plastic spacers. If running a 2mm chassis, you want to have a strap on top of the front suspension mounts.

I guess the first time out I will run with the plates in. I see what you are saying need more spacers

Default New Chassis and Parts

I spent all day today swapping chassis' over, because I got my Teemu chassis (And other parts) from the US, (Big thanks to AdrianM for his assistance with that )

I've also installed my low towers, Tamiya shocks, alloy pivot blocks and Titanium screw kit, turnbuckles and hingepins so at racing tomorrow I think the car will feel like completely different to what I've had.

But I'm really looking forward to getting it dialed in and seeing how she goes!!

Is there anything I should expect that will really feel different with the Teemu chassis compared to the stock one?

Also, what are the position of the cells in the Teemu?? Inside middle??

Thanks
Iain

I believe that the cells are in and to the rear in the Teemu chassis. I haven't run mine in a while so I don't really remember how the car felt with it. I mainly run my batteries middle and in.
