I think my wife would kill me if I raced both days. Socalrc race on Saturday. Definately plan on making it up there or to Corona though.

So as far as setup goes on these things. How do I set the ride height? It has the standup shock towers, and the shock collar is all the way up. I'm reading it's adjusted by the "swaybar" cams, even though figure I had it, I can't get the car much lower than 15mm.

Thanks,
Mark

The sway bar cams are your downstops.
You can shorten the push rods and the shock length to lower.

I've got the SNR carbon towers on the car. I'll look at the shocks, but I think they're as short as they go. I'm used to adjusting ride height by adjusting the shock collar, but these are all the way up. I'm wondering if the tower needs to be a little bit taller?

Just ran my Ultra GTP2E yesterday. A blast to drive! I pretty much drove the car bone stock with different tires i borrowed from Dave Starks. The car is awersome. I need a little more adjustments and the car will be dialed. I ran a Novak system but thermalled so i didn't finish the race. Im hoping i get my Speedpassion system in by Ht Corona on the 17th. I ran a HV 6.5. I ordered a Speedpassion Silver Arrow with a 2200KV motor. The Ofna guys are in full support for this class so i hope to see more GT8's out there in a couple of weeks. As soon as i take pics of my car, ill post it. All i did this weekend was set the ride height and droop. i might need to get some springs and maybe some stiffer oil. Regardless, the car is super fun and really easy to drive/set up. I was a little under motored with the 6.5 and probably under geared,(170' straight) but made it up in the infield.

So now that I have a car, Jai just got one too, who's up for making it out to Ht Corona October 17th??

Track is 160x80, High Bite Asphalt. Onsite Hobbyshopis Hobbytown Corona and there are plenty of places to grub. Techno RC, Mark, Will..you guys down?

I did both Fr and RR with 5mm Droop. I think i need to do more still..it still has considerable front lift on acceleration so i think i will either go 5.5 or 6mm droop in front. As far as ride height, i had it at 11mm front, 12mm Rear.
