Yeah, car is pretty good. I've experimented a ton with set up at the track and found some pretty good stuff. Like always, my car could be better, and it does have a slight push on power, but very easy to drive and stable. I always set up my cars to be easy to drive and consistent.
First tires (after all tires are about 90% of a car's handling and my car is set up for Rp30s, totally different set up for Sorex 36s or Sorex 36 premounts like we ran at Reedy Race). I usually run old RP30s with Tire Tweak or Green Dip entire front and rears with blue mechanics towels and tire warmers at 52*C for about 20 minutes, wipe off with Buggy Grip 2 (old Buggy Grip if I can find it).
Front of car.
Tamiya 3 hole pistons. 45w Losi oil, stock bladder, no foam (Foam was too edgy for me), 50% rebound.
Gold Springs. 5 droop on gauge (6 if I need a bit more on power steering, but car gets a bit more edgy since suspension movement is minimal).
1.0 front inner hinge pin coupler (stock one has too much arm sweep and makes car very unstable around center, with the 1.0 it made the car narrower than rear and helped with some steering).
2mm spacers under all couplers front and rear.
.5 toe-in (I usually use toe-out, but car needed more on power and didn't need steering going in, also it mellowed out the twitchiness around center at speed)
Shock location #1 on arms, #3 on tower.
Silver sway bar. Spool.
CVDs. 1.5* camber. No front posts.
Ride height 5mm all around.
Camber link stock position #2 with 2mm spacer.
Stock wheel hexes all around.
Inner arms spaced 2mm back.
4mm spacers on steering (stock)
Tamiya 3 hole pistons. 40w Losi oil, stock bladder, no foam. 50% rebound.
Silver springs. 5mm droop on gauge.
3* toe with 3.0 coupler, standard plastic rear hubs (Aluminum ones take away traction).
Shock location #3 on arms, #6 on tower.
Sway bar= Copper 1mm spacer at sway bar link front and rear.
Rear hubs spaced 2mm back. Inner arms 2mm forward. (with inner at 2mm, have to space outer hubs slightly back or Rear Universals have too much sweep).
Plastic pro diff.
Camber link stock on bulkhead w 2mm spacer, inner position on hub.
Center direct drive.
Mazda Speed 6 (Sometimes Mazda 6 depending on track).
Car is set up for Nimh 6 cell.
Things I'm trying next.
Lipo Orion 3800.
1.5mm spacers under all inner hingepins.
I'm all trying an experiment with weights and a mod for the weights since I will be running lipo, more info coming.
