I'm running the longer shock for the added steering it gives. I like a ton of steering in my setups. The car has a lot of steering with the shock in the rear possitions too but I like it better forword.

I see Ryan's car first hand every week, and I must say the parts quality on the CRV is pretty impressive. It's all in the details .. the CF parts have their edges rounded off out of the box and the machining of the aluminum is excellent.

Well done Vesa.

I'm new to 12th scale (been racing 1/10th scale offroad before) and got the Carpet Ripper V as my first pan car. I built the car with the manual to out-of-box setup and went to track and it was very easy to drive right from the start.

V-Dezign's parts are very high quality, black anodized aluminium parts looks awesome and carbon fibre has been machined nicely.

The CRV uses CRC's plastic parts and they need a little bit of work to get everything work smoothly. If you run in to problems with the car, Vesa is more than helpful to answer questions.

I'll be doing my first race this weekend, can't wait to get CRV on to race track.

Here's my car:

Tested my crv yesterday at a local 8th scale track, long straight

More a power track with it current setup, went with kit setup with Small changes moved from 35wt to 25wt shock weight for more rear traction

Changed to gold side springs with little pre load about 1/4 turn

Car was dialed and the corner speed was unreal no need to go totally off throttle, lighter shock oil helped with the bumps on the track being outdoor

Had to leave but wanted to turn up the boost more and more it just had that much grip, this car really is so easy to be consistent

Tires tested
Xceeds soft rears and Jaco double pink fronts & body was AMR

First outing of the season today and had a blast, car was so easy to drive even compared to V4. Need some work on ESC settings to have a little more grunt out of the corner.
Long shock option was best but need to check the droop on that for next time. Was running 5.5 turn mod and directly on last years pace, at the end a little faster and more consistent.

Setup sheet attached and this time hopefully full of info...
