Dear Ant,

Few Question:

Any setup sheet for reference; Front blocks & rear blocks set up?

Is it a super high traction track?

Tires wear & tear condition after each heat?

Tks & Rgds.

I ran B-C front blocks, XA-C rear blocks. Track was crazy grip at night, but during the event the track grip decreased during the event as there was less cars going around. My tyre wear was pretty good, but we only had to do 2-3 runs on the tyres. I was using LRP Carpet or Mighty Gripper as additive

I have tested a few so far, a company here in Australia, Bazerk Rc make them. They are 6mm lower than standard ones. We are using Tamiya Mini shocks with them, I have also tested Xray shocks but didnt like these as much.


My setup is here: http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/tami...2013012324.pdf

Ant, well done at TITC, what does the lower shock tower and running the shorter shocks do for the car setup wise?

With the lower shock towers the car sits much flatter on the track, it reacts a little faster on direction change but lap times seem to be quite similar. I think its all track dependant, but also its hard to 100% compare as we use short springs with them.

We did try, but I felt more comfortable using what I did. The factory boys used different setups with their proto car



P.S Forgot to menton I dremeled the front of the top deck for more flex!

interesting setup!
What made you know the car needed more front flex? Ive been trying to figure out chassis flex, i thought you guys would run a stiff car on such a high grip track?
Did you run v5 bulkheads or x bulkheads shimmed up for more flex?

The car was too bitey, as in it was steering too hard into the corners, making traction roll even more of an isuue. When I cut the top deck, the front flex's first so it takes away some of that bite. From what I have seen, on high grip more flex is better. A lot of other cars where using thinner top decks etc. I ran kit bulkheads

Was it bitey with the low towers? I have also made some low towers for my 417 but have yet to try them out.

The rear diff gave the car more drive out of the corner and more corner speed, but also makes the car MUCH harder to drive. It seemed to suit that track, others where using up to 20k rear diffs. That is correct with how I ran the top deck, just to make the flex a bit softer.

Cheers
