hey
went back to the track today. car is really getting there. seems like it only needs a few more changes 'till it's dialed.
i'm having 2 problems:
1)slight understeer, can't turn sharp enough for some turns, despite my servo atv being set at 80%.
2)still having problems with rear grip. nothing too serious, but i have to fight the car to prevent powerslides after hard turns.
here's my setup, i'm racing on a pretty tight carpet track.
2 degrees of toe-in
4mm ride height
2 degree hub carriers
2mm droop
pivot support 4
1 washer under bellcrank ball stud
upper shock mounting hole:2
Camber link mounting hole:2
losi low roll
shocks: 60 wt oil, 56 piston, purple spring
-1 camber
24 mm dbl pinks

rear:
2 degree toe in
5mm ride height
-1 camber
4mm droop
pivot support 0
camber link in hub: location A
camber link in tower:hole 1
upper shock mounting location:hole 2
lower shock mounting locationutside
losi low roll center
shocks: 80 wt oil, 55 piston, purple spring
26mm purples

cardboard, try a looser rear spring, i believe the black spring(losi) is softer, or try the silver, if that doesn't solve the rear looseness, lay the shocks down on hole on the top.

Cardboard, I agree - try silver spring (softer than Purple I think). May also want to try 1.5 - 2.0 on rear camber. Everytime I change camber it seems to make a big difference

Nothing special on my car. Some blue stuff and a fairly clean layout. BTW, I like your painted gear cover.

Cardboard, i really don't want to have to rummage to my spring collection, but heres my saying, if your rear end is loose, go to the softest spring(common sense though), and go up from there.

Rather than going to the softest spring, it will be better to go down 1 spring. Going to the softest is going to hurt more than help in most cases.
