Looks good, Ben! Do you have any shorter screws to use for the servo mounts? I still owe you my setup from last weekend too.

Car looks great! I thought I'd mention that if you intend to run mod (didn't notice what motor you have installed), you may want to mount your speedo with the solder posts facing outward as I had consistent thermal issues with my RS Pro in the orientation you have yours now. The posts act as the only heatsink for the Tekins.

This is how I had mine at first before experimenting with other positions and eventually found that having the posts outward made all the difference.

A couple questions I was hoping yall could help me with:

1) How does running the rear-toe hubs differ vs running all your toe inboard?

Ie: If you were running 0* rear hubs and 3* of toe-in on the arm mounts... How would the car change if you went to 1* rear hubs and 2* of toe-in on the arm mounts?

2) How much dual rate are you guys running on your radio on carpet vs asphalt?

At a local carpet race this past weekend, I was using 80% dual rate. At 90% or above, the car was simply too difficult to drive. However, I usually keep the radio @ 100% dual rate at all the asphalt races Ive been to.

How are you guys running your dual rate on these different surfaces?

Toe inboard will give more forward bite, hub toe will free it up a little

At a standard asphalt track and on carpet, I have been using full lock. The only place I havent used full lock was the Hobbytown USA in Frederick ("The Coliseum") where its indoor asphalt with astronomical grip.

Thanks.

But are you referring to actual steering throw(ie: end point adjustment)? Or the dual rate "curve"?

Im going to keep them on there for the simple reason, that they are Orion servo screws. They are the best! I may shorten the top ones..

Get me that setup!

Also... question about these PPD billets...

1. The washer to the right represents the same number of washers that is used in the front part of the hinge pin... for these Dial a Grips.. its that so the mounts dont bind on the bulkheads... or is that a width setting?

2. Is the thickness of these mounts the same as the stock plastic ones? So if we wanted to follow a Pro's setup as far as tire width and over all toe in the rear.. would it be the same?

3. 2.7mm of toe shims equals what on this AE car?

2.7mm is well...2.7mm, the AE plastic are 1-1.5-and 2mm

Did you go on the dial a grip posts?

I dont know about the Dial-a-Grips... but the kit wheelbase/toe spacers(the horseshoe looking ones) are 1, 1.5, and 2 degrees. Not millimeters.

They actually measure out to .85mm, 1.30mm, and 1.70mm.

Really!! never mesured mine, my understanding was that they were in mm, still, no combination of these makes 2.7mm, then you have to think that there is a shim on the front of arm mount too.

But, why don't you use the original shim rather than the round metal ones?

The blue metal ones(RC12R5 bulkhead shims) are what I use. I use them because they provide much more accurate toe settings. When you tighten down the arm mount screws with the plastic horseshoes, you can tell that there is a fair amount of give in the spacer. And it shoes on the setup station. I had up to .5 degrees difference in rear toe with the plastic pieces. With the metal bulkhead shims, the toe matches up exactly side to side. And there is no give in the spacer... you tighten them down and that is that.
