I didn't break any DCJ Shafts but i'm way too far from Hara's level I think i'm good enough for durability testing for you guys.

Thanks,
The DCJ shafts will work with current suspension parts?

Hi all,

Sorry if this as been discussed before, I have used the search funtion, but haven't found a answer...

I will be runing for the first time the Cylone TC, but im not sure what setup i should try. I run ruber on asphalt in fast, flowing tracks. Grip is usually low.

My base setup on the cyclone AM is something like this:

Front:

60W oil on #3 holes
0 toe
silver/Pink springs
2/3 shock position
5.00mm droop

Rear
50W oil on 3# holes
3 toe
blue springs
1,5/2,5 shock position
5,5mm droop

Everything else is standard.

What should i try first on the TC? Do you recomend using the new arm shock positions? What about shock oil?

Thanks in advance for any help

Cool then I get his, since he won't be able to make it up. Besides he was only going to run his Mugen 8th scale.

I'll be there again this year since Speedworld is my local track...

And I think Hiro and Korey as well as others will be there...

The setup doesn't look too bad so far. The common trend with Hara and Andy are to run lighter springs and fairly heavy oil, which is similar to what you have. How many shims are you running under the suspension blocks? Those can help with the overall balance of the car depending on how you use them. You could also play with arm sweep (front toe block). The more sweep you have, the more mid corner steering you'll notice.

Since your "basic" package is all in the ballpark, it's all about playing with little things around the car. If you post a full detailed setup, and maybe what you feel is lacking, we would be able to help you a little better.

I always thought about less sweep make more mid corner ( using 1 or less then 2.5 degree FF block ),please correct me if I'm wrong.

Every time I've used sweep it has given me more steering right at the apex of the corner, and smoothed out entry a little bit.
