EDDIE ROSSI:

thanks... makes sense now... when you change your effectice droop, do you do so for both the front and rear?


JITSU GUY:

The new G+ has a diiferent set of rear A arms (aside from the the material) it has two mounting holes for the rear hubs.

they designed the inner holes to make the losi's rear rotate more for very tight tracks.

Mercury Racer,
if I need I change both front and rear or only one side, depends on what change I want in car handling. Most of the times, if the car is already well balanced, I will reduce or increase amount of effective droop same on both ends.

I mainly use it to increase or reduce the weight transfer on front and rear end of the car. Example, immediately before a sharp corner, power off, the weight of the car is transferred to the front end. Increasing rear effective droop, we increase the amount of weight transfer to the front and so the off-power steering.
Exiting the corner, power on, the weight is transferred to the rear end. Increasing front effective droop, we increase weight transfer to the rear and so we reduce on-power oversteer.
But these are only my experiences, maybe I am wrong!

Default Adjusting droop

Now that I have the new G+ chassis and low roll center setup, I found that my droop screws are too dang long. Can I just adjust droop with the ball cup attachments on the end of the shock shaft? Such as unscrewing them to decrease droop and screwing them in to increase droop? Or is this not a good way to set droop?

Thanks,
J

Oh yeah and Mercury Racer, thanks for your insight. I was wondering what all this off-set talk was about.. But yeah, that makes sense, by shortening the width some the car should rotate quicker/better on tight tracks.

jitsuguy- to adjust droop by undoing shock ends, you will need to add limiters inside the shock itself. This is actually the method that the Facotry Losi drivers use, they say it's more consistent.

The black ones that look like your a arm spacers. I do not know how much to use, I don't run that car, but i know that's how they do it.

Using limiters and adjusting the length with the shock ends is far more consistant. If you look at the droop screws when they're tightend down, the bumper flexes a ton and will give inconsistant settings as well as change while you're driving.

Use thin metal shims to fine tune the droop setting. Use the thick black ones for large adjustments and use thin shims to fine tune it.

Where on the shock do I place the limiters?

Thanks!
