LOL, I had to stretch them out a bit to make me look more important Yep I'll see you there, I think the weather will be a lil better than NJ, no need to worry about flash MONSOONS!

EDIT: True story, for the life of me I can't seem to win at getting your app. I called myself being smart and since I don't have an apple or android device I'd just find a good emulator and run the app from in there...no dice! I just can't win

Weight balance is a very important aspect of car setup for sure.

From my testing when moving weight forward the car will push more on high speed corners and on corner entry of low speed corners. However on low speed corners as you finish the apex and start grab some throttle I find it can sometimes give a little more steering and forward bite. It will also overheat your front tires more and they will loose grip through the race causing the car to push more as the race goes on.

If have found that moving the weight to the back of the car tends to give the car more steering in both high speed and low speed corners. I think you loose a little bit of forward bite...but it might just be my imagination It will also cause the rear tires to overheat causing more oversteer later in the race.

I still think it is best to get as close to 50/50 weight balance. The balance you have is perfect I think.

I hope this helps.
Martin.
Sure does, thanks.

I have driven both standard and flex top decks, each have there own place but I prefer the flex deck outdoors in 13.5T boosted. I've not run 17.5T blinky so don't know what Rob was up against but his car looked good in the finals. I do prefer the standard top deck on carpet

My Setup:
Front-
Hard c hubs
Spec-R 2.7 Spring
600cst oil, 4 hole piston
1.4mm Roll bar
Hole 2 on tower, outer hole on wb
2mm wheel base, Brackets 2 (FF) 1 (FR)
0.5mm shim on outer link, 5mm inner link - Long link
0.5mm shim (FF), 3.5mm shim (FR)
5.5mm ride height, 5mm droop
1.5 camber
Spool

Rear-
Spec-R 2.5 Spring
600cst oil, 4 hole piston
1.2mm roll bar
Hole 4 on tower, outer hole on wb
5mm wheel base, brackets 0 (RF) 3 (RR)
3mm on outer link, 2.5mm inner link - kit link position
0.5mm shim (RF), 0.5mm shim (RR)
6mm ride height, 4mm droop
2 camber
1300cst diff oil, 2 gear

2.25 chassis, 2mm flex top deck

WLRC's new surface is good on tyres so I ran 1 set all day, although it is a bit bumpy (hence the ride height)

I think that covers everything

Default Serpent sour gears

Some time ago, I saw an awesome array of Serpent spur gears (both 48P and 64P) that were to be released or were released.

Anyone know what happened to them or where they can/might be purchased? Looked on http://www.serpentamerica.com, and didn't see any reference.

Am i the only one with this problem ?
The 48P 87T spur dont fits , the spur is blocked complete on the chassis.
But the strange thing is , that i use the original spur from Serpent.
Really dont get it .

Martin on the website it shows pics of the app, In some of the screenshots it looks like there are added options if you get the app for the Iphone/pad products over the android products. Am I seeing things?

Post a pic if you can so we can see the problem. Secondly if you have a TE you might not get a response since they aren't out for distribution here yet.
