1) What is the purpose of the split suspension mounts? What is the advantage over the solid ones?

2) Is there a servo saver that will fit this car with the stock servo mount in place?

Thanks.

1) A little more flex at that end of the car for better grip
2) Not that I know of, I ended up with the optional servo mount and an Xray servo saver, works great.

Shouldnt really be needed, but for the cleanest installation, get 2 packs of Tamiya # 42231 (come 4 to a pack only), their new threaded balls.

Ran the R10 with no front arm sweep tonight (2.0 - 2.0 blocks). Seems to make the car a little more solid on carpet. Fast lap didn't improve but, it was easier to drive hard consistently...just thought I'd share.

I've installed mine with parts that are equivalent to the Tamiya #53640 (they are actually from the Xevo Triumph mini conversion if anyone remembers it). They have a slightly deeper offset than the ARC ball ends, which means that the front shocks are very close to rubbing the wheels on full lock. I'd probably build using a "short" ball nut like #53869 or #54360 if I was buying from new. Not sure whether #42231 are short or not.

You'll also want to pick up #42192 large damper retainer if you want to use the ARC springs. You can use the ARC shock bottoms but they do foul the Tamiya shocks before you reach full compression.

Thats basically what the Yokomo guys do, run wider front blocks in parallel, the inboard toe out gives you more bite mid corner which you probably dont need on carpet. The wider stance (compared to 1 and 1) would also make it less twitchy, but is supposed to increase the lateral grip, making it smoother, but also more direct.

Once I get .3 and .5 shims I'll be testing with lower roll centers, I'm having an occasional issue with traction rolling when the grip comes up on carpet. The R10 changes direction so well, we may be able to add a little roll without sacrificing too much agility.
Before I post a setup, I want to be sure that it'll get the car 90% there for most racers.
We have five R10's at our track now, it's great to have other racers trying different things, the car is already crazy fast and getting faster!

Not a bad idea, the roll centres are already quite high compared to most other brands normal setups. I have found 0.5 to be a good all round height.

Did you try different R/C front and rear, wondering how the car would respond? Some chassis don't seem to like staggered roll centers (Hot Bodies) but, I've found its good in some conditions with the TC6 and Xray cars.

Not recently, i tried both a higher front, and higher rear early on in the piece. I have been pretty happy with the car of late, check out the Facebook group called ARC Driver.
