My car accelerated and turned too fast for me at that very small track, and my body was already shot from previous hits... I also forgot to heat my tires up with the tire warmers before the race. I was really rusty..lol...

When you are setting ride height, are you measuring it with the wheels on, or the a-arm drop from the chassis? I ask this, because the manual shows that you are supposed to use the a arm for the measurement, but I've always thought ride height was the distance between the bottom most part of the chassis and the ground with the suspension working as it should, and wheels on the vehicle.

Cool thanks. What is the order to set the suspension? Droop, then ride height, or what?

Ray - Thanks for the valuable and proven set up 411 - because of availability of this info I'm modding up my TC4 for 17.5 action (mostly GT) for club racing...lots of fast guys there and even before these mods was surprised to find out my TC4 was not off the pace by that much.

for asphalt have you tired running with no sway bars at all? seems to be the ticket at the 2 asphalt tracks I run even with some XT4's and AET6's...I run my TC4 with none...found it to be much more hooked up than with.

also

just received LOSI LCD bones and after putting them together found they function with a lot of bind & sticktion, this is bench testing haven't run on track yet...is there a wear in period or a trick to make them work smoothly?

Having trouble save data in the AE setup sheet on my Mac , any help ?

This is a jpeg copy of the file, till I figure it out.

Additional info not on sheet :

Inside legs of corner braces removed
Outside tub wall between corner braces cut down 3mm
Motor mount cam heat sink removed along with the long "L" section
Steering rack servo saver glued and tight , Servo saver added to servo
5/8" holes drilled one under each diff and two under steering rack
Arms centered front and back
Droop is 1.5mm over ride height ,front and rear
Shocks are SpecR R-1 with 3 hole pistons , front 1mm piston holes and 1.1mm in the rear
Motor is Revtech Killshot, torque model
How do you mount your battery?

The losi LCD drives won't feel free if you don't cut the shrink wrap right after the pins. You'll need a very small and sharp blade to cut them properly.... After they're cut they will be seriously loose.... Happy racing.. I cut mine with a new razor blade before installing them on the car..... It works flawlessly......

I was giving you a price range for the rollers that might be available out there, not a price quote on my current Fttc4,, which will never be sold for less than a million dollars...lol....

Thanks for the tip...will be paying extra attention to that point then, however from observation I think the little ball on top of axle does not fit the half dome recess on top the bone properly and that is the cause...4 different bones and 4 different axles and they all matched (not) differently from part to part and none well...I guess QC standards a few years ago don't match today's, LOL.
