less droop i have 2.5mm front droop
or staighter rear shocks or any thing that could help me without affecting alot the rear end because if i put more shims under rear camber link , it will increase onpower steering but it will also decrease rear grip , and when i will go in chicanes my rear end will be loose.
So could you tell me everything that i could do to have abit more on power steering.
Thanks guys
No one knows how to have more on power steering ??

Stiffen the rear to create more on power steering.

Also if your car is getting loose in back and fourth chicanes try a lighter rear sway or no rear sway, it can help you change directions better without it letting go of the rear.

Either will help, I generally like my rear shocks more layed down so the car is smoother in the rear and not as bitey and reactive as more stood up shocks would be. Go experiment with the changes ie stiffer spring or more stood up shocks in the rear for on power steering. Also you can take out some front droop therefore not allowing the chassis to kick back in the front as much and keeping weight on the front tires under acceleration, this will also make the car a little quicker to change direction in the front making it roll less in the front thought chicanes.

The main thing to do is go try the changes on your car at the track and see what best fits your driving style.

Anyone that hasnt already put cooling on the motor and is after the best and cheapest option, all you need is a small metal bracket drill 2 holes and get a 5 volt dc 40mm fan(from ebay), ohh and get the flat carbon middle deck.
and a servo extension cable or an old servo plug & lead, so as to plug it in.

As long as you have any spare slot in your reciever and your esc outputs 6 volt, it will cool really well.


cheers

hi , when would people go to a higher or lower RC.
Is it when the track is tight or open or is it when the grip is differente.
Or how would people know when to change the shock oil or spring or piston.
Thanks in advance

Default Dogbones

Ok, apologies if this has already been asked.

I have the new Cyclone TC and run the fixed spool on rubber tires on carpet. I keep breaking the front drive shafts at the hub end.

Can i use the earlier steel 44mm version of dogbone 60116 or 61043 in the TC?

Cheers
