Schuie,

Try 56 pistons with 60wt front and rear, and get rid of the kickup. If you want more steering after that go with more rear droop.

Good bye to my fellow XXXS racer's......I'm leaving for the Reedy tomorrow and I don't plan on hauling the lap top to this event so computer access might not be possible unless Matt Francis has his with him. I will post my set up that I end up using at this race for anyone that cares for it.

Good luck STLNLST........bring back some hardware!!!!

Trips.....I always thought you should go stiffer in the front if you wanted more steering so your idea of going to 60 wt oil and 56 pistons has me a little confused. I do agree that I should probably get rid of the kick up though. This question has been asked a gazillion times already but I'm going to ask it again What's the difference between having 0 degrees of kick up and 4 degrees of caster at the block compared to 2 degrees of kickup and 2 degrees at the block? Does the car feel different between these two settings even though the total amount of caster is the same?

I would love to see setups from this race considering the oneways won't be allowed. Good luck and don't lap the competition to much!

Schuie- Kickup will affect how the front end moves. This is why negative kickup is called anti-dive. 0 or neg kickup will let the front dive less when braking and the front will lift less while accelerating. This in affect helps controll front to back weight transfer. BTW I have found that I allmost always like the car with 4deg caster blocks and 0 kickup. I would like to try 6deg blocks with some anti-dive if Losi ever gets the 6 deg blocks out to the general public.

He grovels at Lemieux's feet to get prototype parts

edit: Actually, mr. losi and Paul are good friends. Paul comes to race at our track once in awhile and a good time is had by all. It's nice to have a pro all the way out here in cheese land

Default What tire to get?

Can you guys tell me what would be a good tire to use on a parking lot track that has a unprepared surface. Iíve been looking at either the HPI 5130 Super Radial Tire or the PRO-Line 1093-S2 Road Rage. Will I be happy with these tires or is there a better tire out there.

Thanks to all for there input.

For dirty unpreped parking lots, I would use HPI X Patterns Pro compound.

I have tried a lot of different tires for dirty tracks (because almost all tracks are dusty at us so I think I can help you. For dirty parking lots the HPI 4521 low profile radial in pro compound is the best. The low sidewall gives a bit more responsive steering than the normal. Only the pro compound gives enough tracktion, the super compound tires last longer but the traction much less. Don't use the foam inserts included with the HPI tires, they much too soft. Get the 4670 HPI 26mm soft molded inserts, or any 26mm wide (NOT 24mm!!!) medium/soft molded inserts, what can support strong enough the sidewall of the tire. The 26mm hpi inserts are extra heavy
Use soft springs on your car.

Default Question on Paul Lemieux's Roar Setup

Hello,

I am interested in using Paul Lemieux Roar setup...

http://www.teamlosi.com/pictures/jpe...SPaul_nats.jpg

I looked at his setup, but I can't tell if he used the stock 0 degree rear hub carriers or if he used either the .5 or 1 degree rear hub carriers. Any ideas?

Thanks,
reddew

reddw,

his setup sheet calls for 2 degrees rear toe. The 0 degree rear carriers provide that.
