I've been running without the foam in most places. if the track is really tight I like the feel of rebound . Seems more reactive to me.

Agno, our setups are very similar


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I run without Spacer in the Rear Sway Bar, because I love having a lot of agility in the chicane.

Have a little Understeer in fast corners, What can I do?

I did try losi lcd and didn't have any chatter at all but don't like running the knuckles to use them!! And don't like not being able to rebuild the hot dcj's.

Hope that helps!

thanks for your input guys... mine just chatters so much that is frustrating hearing it like chewing metals. i've narrowed it down to the CVDs and will have to use DCJ to make it go away.

i'm using aluminum C-hubs and alum knuckles, do you think using the original plastic parts would help?

so DCJs aren't rebuildable? do they last decently?

The DCJs are not rebuildable, but are very, very strong

So I have a cyclone TC, and I was wondering how much weight I need to add to offset my lightweight lipo. I am using a turnigy 5200MAH 2s Hardcase (if that helps)
hobbyking says Pack Weight: 333g

You need to buy some balance buttons or make your own balance stand.
There is no exact weight it all depends on your electronics to get the car the car balanced out.
