Hey Korey, what was your timing set at on your Duo and what were the temps coming off the motor. Also, did you run a fan on motor?
Thanks.

Timing was at the middle hole, motor temps were comming off at about 170 with 2 fans. Without the fans it was around 200 deg.... but that gearing felt the best overall so I did what I could to bring the temps down. The trinity rotors are really good, so even if you get them hot a few times, they can survive it.

Default upper deck ?

Does anyone know when the new upper deck will be out ?
I bought a weight tray that slides under the battery, and I can't use it because
I can't fit weight tray and battery in at the same time... Oh my...

shorten your wheelbase. you might want to use a front diff or a solid front diff. also it depends on what tires you are using ( foam or rubber) try adding more tire traction to the front wheels. also check the camber and toe settings. try starting from the original set up. good luck

Korey, what is the difference between Losi oil and AE oil ? Is the Losi softer given the same weight ?
Thanks.

I used 4mm for the ackerman shims.

Losi oil is a bit thicker I think. Hara did a lot of testing on a bunch of different shock oils and he said Losi was the best. That's probably the only reason I use Losi oil now... and it comes in cool colors!
