Releasing their super fancy servo mount when some manufacturers have had their dcjs released for more than a year, if not two. Come on.
lots I wish Top did with the EX... mine will be a drift car and if it brakes an ornament. Wish they waited and got it perfect before release.

Check out Hanulec's Wiki page, at the bottom are some setups. Start with Larry's Middle River.

This will help you to give you more Steering and make the Car easier to Drive. You have to Cut the Front Arms 1,5mm to move it more Rearward! Also use the Rear Arms in the Front Pos. to get the Car in the shortest Position. Don`t forget to check the Position from the Shocks, they must be always in the Straight Position! If not, use Shims

The EX was still one of the better cars in the 2012 SA Championship with 2 cars in the top 5 and 3 cars in the top 10.

Default Asphalt Setup

Hello All,

Just wanted to share the asphalt setup I've been using. It's worked well on many tracks. I'm really happy with it.

DCJ's are being made now.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

EJ

I'm using the "H" mount which is standard with the kit. I'm also using the concentric inserts which are standard.

by concentric inserts do you mean the little metal part that slips inside the H mount,

and by concentric to you mean off set, like its high in one position and you turn it over now its in the low position??

mine are not like this.

Concentric means it shares the same center, ie, the inner hole and outer diameter share the same center, as in not off set. Eccentric means the centers are off set......

oooooooo, oh ok, i get it. so then can I assume that because it was mentioned that he was using the concentric inserts, there is a optional eccentirc insert.

I'm being serious, I know nothing about the TOP brand of cars. it took me two weeks to figure out I had the rear arms on different.
