not so good an idea for adding weight in front of axle to get 50/50. This will do more than change weight % as it is added outside the wheelbase.

Well ... ? To put it inside the wheel base I would had to add more than 2x that to get same weight bias. So with that thought wouldn't say 25g inside the wheelbase be same affect as adding 10g under bumper as weight transfer takes place . Not to mention 50/50 might not be ideal either . My photon was always front heavy so I expect this car to drive much more consistent from that alone

I use a heavy weight bumper instead of a lightweight version as a tunning aid, it helps tame the front down a little

That's the magic of this hobby, no 2 drivers are the same, I found as soon as I went away from what people were suggesting and concentrated on what worked best for me, my car, laps times, race results all improved no end!

Put it this way, who out there runs anti squat these days? I do, as for me it makes my car quicker, for the next man, maybe not!

Hi Guys,

looking for a little info on the Graphite Arms. How stiff are they compared to the X and the XH arms?

Mark...

U can't download a box from the website!

I don't think it's cheap I think it's practical we'll presented in a box and another box to open for him and a descent car inside he I'm sure will be well chuffed.

I have 2 cars setup identically, except for motor and graphite arms, they both drive the same way and run the same times, this is on med-high bite carpet, maybe it would be noticeable on asphalt.

I think I still have mine. The inner box is a little rough, but the outter sleeve is still pretty good. As for the manual I don't think I have. I have a copy on my iPad. I'd be happy to send you the box.
