Awesome suggestion guys. Good to hear from you again kschu! I'm back at RC racing again and back with a Yok.

I run Mugen 2000cst in my rear diff. I do have some MuchMore 3000cst I could try, but I'm going with the bridge first as I feel a lot of the oversteer is the chassis snapping/flexing back after initial turn in. As for tires, I'm currently running what the track is selling to support them. If I start mounting my own, it might open up a whole can of worms. Plus it's good to know what chassis settings do rather than just changing tires because that is not always an option. Especially at big races with handout tires. Great suggestions though. Maybe I should go back to a ball diff. I remember my BD5 diff was silky smooth back in the day! Oh yeah, I'm currently running the MazdaSpeed 6 regular weight. I wanna switch to a lightweight body. Take some top weight off the car.

So where is that IIC setup! Hehe

A lwt Speed6 will help calm the car down too, they tend to have a bit less steering than the regular weight shell.

Hey guys, here is our setups(Mod and Super stock) from IIC.

The main difference between our setup and Ronalds was that he used Pink springs up front. We were running the pink almost the whole week, but once the grip began to reach ridiculous levels, they made the car more twitchy and prone to traction rolling so we ditched them in favour of the blue springs. We tested back to back on both cars during two seperate practice sessions, and Andrew preferred the way the car felt with the blue springs because he could drive the car much harder. In medium to low grip, I think the pinks are better(more corner speed) as the chance of traction rolling is much lower.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask!

2 things, I see in the setup sheet it says you used the outer hole on the rear hub, is this correct?? This would make a longer rear link but not by the other bulkhead position. Also, the steering bridge, do you have it fitted to bell cranks alone or to topdeck as well?? I have a raceberry carbon plate for just across the bellcranks
thanks

And, I know it says droop 1.5 above ride height, what is this on 10mm blocks with droop gauge ?? Unless there is a quick way to convert it

You are correct - long rear links. This makes the car more stable on corner entry and steer more middle off. Both Ronald and Andrew like to get on the power VERY early and we were struggling(Andrew) to get enough steering(especially onto the straight). Keep in mind that the whole setup works together so don't just try it once and expect it to work better...well sometimes you get lucky, but you know what I mean.

As for droop, I have always used "above ride height" way of measuring because it is stupid easy, and all you need is a ride height gauge - not everyone has droop blocks so they may not be able to accurately copy a setup of mine...oh and you don't need to take your wheels off!

So, for those who do not know what "above ride height" is:

1. Measure your rideheight.
2. Lift the end of the car you are working with(front/rear) by the shock tower and stop just before the tires come off the ground.
3. Now, measure again.
4. The difference bwteen the two measurements is your droop.

Important: The actualy numbers are only needed for recording purposes and to share setup information. When I tune the car, I am working off my base setting and not adjusting to a specific number. If I feel we need more rear droop for example, I will just take the wrench and turn the screws a 1/2 turn. After doing this more than twice, I will then, and only then, put it on the droop blocks to ensure the droop is equal left/right.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the setup Corey. Definitely gonna try the super stock setup this Sunday.

Kosmic, you can see a small pic of Ronald's car from the IIC on RC50.com. It also showed the rear link on the outer hole on the rear hub. I was wondering if he was gonna run it this way or if it was just for show while his car was on display. Good to see Corey link up the setup with this in there as well. Helps verify a few things.

Thx.-John
Are you running ECS shafts upfront? I had the same problem with the stock universal shafts.

Brilliant, will try this weekend at uk's biggest carpet championship. Still, do you connect bridge to topdeck or leave top screw out???? And how would you word how the longer links fr and r make the car feel. Either long fr or long r or both long.
Cheers
