Not all kit setups work on all tracks.

I can see my self spending some time in tuning it to my liking. But hey this is car racing.
Time and patience will reap rewards.

I'm sure the car is good, with some time in testing and development. Results speak for themselves, the car has done well. But I just don't have the patience anymore

I ended going back to my xray towards the end of the days racing yesterday, and that car had too much rear grip that I will have to dial it out the next time I run haha

Hey Patto, what's your thoughts on the 2mm chassis? I'm thinking of getting it as I'm after more rear grip. I'm currenty running the 2.5 mm. I haven't tried the white rear springs & softer sway bar yet but i've lengthened the rear wheel base to 5mm & 3000 cst gear diff. Otherwise the car the pretty much stock settings and I'm still struggling with lack of rear grip..

Cheers...

try 1000cst in rear diff, change your front arms to M arms. then it should be good.

I had the assumption 1000 would be too light and over rotate

overall lap time doesnt get better, but the car is easier to drive. so end result, it will be quicker over the 5 min run.

Hacker, can you not play nice ? and stop with the offensive descriptions you give ? dumb ass, dip shit etc are all better then that C word.
