Screw it, I converted it to jpg.... It's 1mm on rear inner camber link. You can go with 2mm if you are running Sorex 28R. 1mm front inner camber link. It got lost in translation....

Actually its cheaper than that in Asia and its been like that for a while at least 4 months. You can order from Japan for £240 plus shipping. I heard rumors of new kits a while ago but I haven't seen anything...

I think you had same problem as me. Try realigning the holes and keep trying. You need to find the sweet spot for it to go in all the way.

Hey Guys, used my car on a carpet for the first time in months during a practice session. It's a high grip carpet, point and shoot turns, so agressive steering is needed. I got the car really good, but it tends to traction roll.

- I have raised the roll center in the front and back
- the top arms are short all around
- using Pink springs in the front, and black in the rear with 35wt shock oil
- i have to add 60 grams of weight on the car, (8 pieces) 5 down the centerline, 1 in the front under the steering links and the other 2 behind the motor and battery.

I'll post pics of my setup later tonight, any suggestions so far i can try?

entry or exit corner traction roll ??

If entry traction roll, you can try use 6deg chub and harder geardiff oil
if exit traction roll, you can try use 2deg chub and lighter geardiff oil.

glue the tyre sidewall will help too...

I was thinking about that tonight, it's on exit, when i put the power on, which means i have too much transfer of weight to the rear, making the front lift, and when i just touch the corner, the car flips easily.

I have black springs in the back on the 4th from the center hole, i'll try blue, but from the 3rd or 2nd hole. Lighter diff oil, i have 2000, i'll switch to 1000

I was also thinking of moving weight to the front instead. right now i have 7grams in the front, and 14 in the back, i'll flip that around, and even try to put the weight on the side of the servo mount and my ESC to keep it as much in the center of the car.

What does glueing the tire side wall do? make it tend to roll less? They're Sweep 28s, the spec tires at the track

Silly question, Is everyone just mounting the motor fan with double sided tape ? I have tried it due to the lack of mounting holes on my DB7 but I am not convinced, I can see it moving/falling off in a big accident and destroying a motor
I am just using the tornado fans for the minute until I can get hold of something better.

Mine is double sided tape with no issues. I doubt anything will hit it in a crash because my motor sticks out a lot farther than the fan does. I only use a 30mm fan though. Maybe your fan is bigger?
