Hello Steve....
Do you use center one-way? Have you tried front spool on asphalt?
Is Charlie around? Say Hi to him
Thanks,

danjoy-- This is pretty much what I have been running lately, hope this works for you:

front shock position #2
2.5 mm under inner camberlink
1.0 mm under front pivot
1.5 mm under rear pivot
2.5' pivot support
inner camberlink #1
1.5' camber
4' castor
5mm ride height
6 mm droop
one way diff (usually a spool outdoors)
1.4 mm sway bar (0 mm)
0.5 deg toe out

1.2 mm x 2 piston
40 wt
HPI white
black bladder
1 foam compensator

rear shock position #3
#1 outside camberlink position (0 mm)
1.5 mm under inner camberlink ballstud
1.5 mm under front pivot
1.5 mm under rear pivot
3' pivot block
#1 camberlink
1.5' camber
5.3 mm ride height
6 mm droop
1.2 mm sway bar (0mm)

1.2 mm x 2 piston
30 wt oil
HPI pink spring
Black bladder
1 foam compensator

4mm ackerman spacing

at socal I usually run a yokomo E stratus, but outdoors most of the time I run the Ride Accord type B

Std hexes front and rear

Ft arm spacing 0.5 F/ 2mm R
Rr arm spacing 2mm F/05.R

Rr upright 2.75 F/0R

With a spool I oftentimes play with reducing rear toe in and with my sway bar stagger... maybe try a 1.2 mm sway bar in the front as well.

With stock motors you will probably be able to get away with less rear toe-in as well.. it's just going to depend on how much over-all bite you have

RC-Zombies -- Thanks, I'll be sure to look him up and pick his brain

Jag -- I'm interested in my take on it too I have a 3mm chassis for the car and installed an extra standoff directly under the front belt tensioner which made the car significantly stiffer... maybe not quite as stiff as it needs to be, but I have time to play with that...

Kumpol-- Most of the time I run I run the center one way...but outdoors most of the time I run a spool in the front with the locked center pulley

Thanks, will try it tomorrow and will let you know how it goes. I was also wanting to try front diffs with center one way. Would this be similar to running a spool?

danjoy -- a front diff will drive easier off throttle than a one way provided that it is not too loose. However, you will more than likely suffer what's refered to as "diffing out" with a front diff which will result in less forward accelleration than either a front spool or a one way.

Steve... I've got the car working well right now with some help from Mo and Aaron young. Still testing to see what works best with the stock chassis, Bmi's chassis won't be out for 3-4 weeks after the snowbirds and thats cutting it close to the nats.

Stocton has been doing some Sunday pratice's so you could come up Race Sat. and pratice sunday, here's the schedule.

Thanks for the info scott!

I don't think I'll be making it up tomorrow... but I might go wild and drive up for sunday's practice session... depends on how fired up I am after racing tomorrow at socal and how much work I get done on the carpet car...

I'll be in touch with you about some ideas that maybe you can try out!!

Nice car! Why do you have a screw partly screwed into the top of the steering knuckles?
