If you come by Saturday, might let you take a spin when Mr. Jackson and I are practicing. Not sure if you could afford the race rental rates.

Has anyone tried running the sedan shock in the center with the long shock end?

yep it behaves more like the though stock shock but without the need for frequent rebuilds. This arrangement gives better on power steering at corner exit buy yeilds a little less with forward bite with the same spring tension as the shorter shock setting.

I agree 100%. The "standard" big shock setup should be a little more stable.

robk:
help me out: on your blog post "shocking reversal" you say in the text "the shock mount set up for the small shock that comes with the car" but in the pic the shock mount is set for the big TRF shock not the small included shock, according to the manual pics?
I am confused, which way to mount itwith the long shock end??

Also how many mm of spacers are you running inside the big TRF shock with the long end?

thanks for the help and your cool blog

The mount is in the correct set of holes but I have it upside down, which raises the front of the shock a little. If you flip the mount over it is a little longer, which is the way the manual shows it.


The back set of holes is the way the manual shows mounting the sedan shock, with the mount oriented the way you see in my picture.

I think I have 4mm of spacers in there. I'd have to look again.

When the shorter (sedan?) piston rod* is used with 1 black o-ring inside, the TRF shock can be set to the same lenght like the stock RM01/V2 damper.
*There are 2 different TRF damper rods. F1/GT rod is slightly longer.

BTW Any foam/carpet setup tips for V2? I've never run V2 on carpet and the carpet season is on the way in our country...

If I were you I would not bother with the aluminum servo mount. It's more of a bling item than anything. I would also suggest you get the RC Spur Gear Spacer
Item #54215. That will allow you to run any spur gear, not just the Tamiya ones.

The Exotek aluminum servo mount is more than just bling...rather than using a long screw at the rear that goes all the way through from the bottom of the chassis through the upper deck it is threaded and uses 2 shorter screws, one from the top and one from the bottom. This makes working on the car a little bit easier.

my servo always moves with the exotek one as it has less surface area. I run the tamiya alum one now

I Shoe Goo the servo in so I don't have any problems with the servo moving. I will say don't use the set screws the Exotek has to hold the servo in place as they just seem to pinch the servo.
