Ok back on topic. 17.5 guys where do you guys run your body ride height at? Just high enough not to drag or higher to allow some suspension travel before it drags?

I always run the body so the suspension can compress before it hits the ground.

If you run a Mazda speed6 like I do, you'll have to put your top body pin on the 9th hole(rear), and on the second hole(front) to be legal... Then, you can trim the skirt so the body won't drag too much...

Some of the previous posts in this thread suggested replacing the front cvds with LOSA3344 lcds. Unfortunately, this part number doesn't seem to be available anymore. Are there any other suitable replacements or a source for the 3344s?

Here's my new TC4 project. I got tired of dremeling so I made up a quick fixture to throw the chassis in an old bridgeport mill. The sides, center, and rear bulkhead are cut down. I removed the webbing on both sides of the front and rear. I also added a 3/16 slot straight through the bottom down the center wall. I'm curious to see how it will react, I can already tell the mods added quite a bit of flex.

@racer x. What did that take your weight down to? my unmolested carbon car is already underweight for my local tracks. Almost 50 grams for one. And im over 200 grams under vta weight thats a lot of lead to add to a car. And thats carbon tub not carbon fiber

I weighed it before and after and it took out around 16 grams. I wasn't too worried about reducing weight, my goal is to improve the flex. Also, with the webbing removed it adds more room for weight if needed.

depending on track size you'll want to start with a 4.0 fdr and adjust from there. I believe my car runs 60spur 38pinion which nets a fdr of 3.94. You can also run a 55t spur and drop a few pinion teeth. robinson racing is the gears i use
