Default Re: Carpet set up explination similar to the outdoor explination

[QUOTE]Originally posted by bigdog xxx-s
[B]10 pages or so ago someone posted how to set up the XXX-S for outdoors and it was lengthly and full of great information. I plan on using Bobby Flack set up to start with the indoor carpet season.

well i have been running bobbys setup for a while now, i have switched it up alittle like, black springs all around 40f 45r shock oil, moved shock placements over one and afew little things here and there. it works really good.
One question, what track(s) do you normally race at?

Randy -- Were still here! Quick question. Have you or anyone else run a milled chassis in order to get the chassis to flex a lil more? I have several guys here running X-ray's and the flexible chassis seems to help their cars stay planted and very predictible in the corners. Any Ideas ?

I ran 2nd to Donny V. at Hobby Central yesterday in 19 turn. But during practice I got hit from behind after being turned over so hard it knocked the right rear up to the right front! Shock and all. Just a quick rear arm chang and that was all the damage. It looked worse than it was.

Sad to say mine. Although it hurt him pretty bad too. I know it broke his cells, which I've never seen a battery crack before, but its not pretty lol

Yes I have, but after trying it I found I prefer softer springs to get the suspension to work, the flexible chassis seemed a hair unpredictable actually. I do still run a milled chassis but have not cut all the way through the carbon, so it still retains most of the stiffness.

Randy: What bit and speed do you use when milling your chassis? Do you use any fixturing to control the depth?
