First, I haven't noticed that the wheelbase is short. How are you comparing it to say that the wheelbase is short?
Second, my current setup is in preparation for a high bite track. That being said, I am working with hard purple front tires and white rears. The plan is to move to grey rears when the traction comes up.
*caster - all shims forward on the AE dynamic strut, 10 deg reactive
*camber -1.87 deg
*center shock - silva, 25 wt AE oil, AE blue spring
*king pin damping - Losi heavy hydradrive, .018 front springs
*Tee-Plate - Power Push .079 thick, tweek screws to the rear
*Damping tubes - Losi heavy hydradrive
*Steering servo set flat with Kimbrough med servo saver, IRS elevated pivot balls on spindles to level steering rods preventing bump steer
*Lower front suspension arms (.060) with .045 shims to put front suspension at same elevation as used on the 12L4. This sets front roll center.
*IRS rear ride height adjusters, 2.5
*Front tire 1.75 dia start
*Rear tire 1.85 dia start
*TQ8 Pro Plus traction compound
*Parma Speed 8 body
*Steering servo Airtronics 94145
*No receiver pack
*IRS lowered rear pod top deck and new side plates
*IRS rear differential w/large rings and Kimbrough gear set 6.73 wide
*Front track has one .020 shim inside each front wheel
*BSR tires and wheels front and rear
This is for stock motors. Still working on something for modified. Hope this helps.
