I use for local club races the Solaris 35 wich is given from the rules and Vtec G32 for LRP-HPI Challenge races here in Germany.

All on my home track with low to med grip asphalt wich is a little bit bumpy.

And what about the roll bars?
Will it have an effect if their shorter when i use the "old" ones from my BD5WC? Or will it be the same like the long version.
The 2014 kit comes with the 1.1mm pistons

Good point, the 2014 does come with the 1.1mm pistons. As for the other parts, yes that's what I use. If you want to use 2 orings per shock, then you need the thin collar YOK-BD-S2W.

As for the swaybars, I only use kit swaybars. I feel no need to try others as I usually prefer not to run any. But with this car I kept them on just because.

What tires are you using?
I've been testing those tires for the past few weeks with very little success. Very skatey. But I'm working on it. All my tests have been with short shocks. I will start testing with standard shocks this coming weekend. I currently race with Sorex 28R.

New Sorex tires fix any problem with any car.

Sweep QTS32 is a safe tire but if your setup is off, you can see it unlike Sorex.

I have a setup for Sweeps that is very easy to drive...

Alright, these collar with 2 orings.

What is the difference to 1 oring? Can I feel that?



And yes new Sorex are like heaven...

I found they just felt more consistent over a longer period of time, probably due to the less leakage,

I disagree. I feel it is simply just a better and more consistent tire. They are also faster at our track. No need to handicap myself with the other tires.

My testing was to find a cheaper alternative for a track Spec tire. Right now it's open. If we went to say... Sweeps, there would be many discouraged new racers at our track. So I'm trying to figure it all out.

Post your setup and I'll try it out.

I am also eager to see your Sweep QTS32 setup. I've run into a problem in which the Sweeps that I buy from TQRacing seem to have come from a different batch than what we have available at the track for sale. Unfortunately, I didn't mark which bags came from which source so I never know until I mount them. My hope is that your setup is for the more skatey variant of Sweep QTS tires.

Today I had my second run with my BD7'14. The first run was pretty good. On my local track. I attached a picture of it.

Today it was really low traction I think because of sand or dirt wich was blown over the track. I changed a lot on my setup. I also attached. But it didn't really work well. In the numbered corners i had really bad oversteering when I went of throttle and again when I began to give throttle again. General it will be good to have more traction on rear and front overall.

Can you give me some tips I can try next time?

I use Solaris 35 tires wich i have to use for club races and LRP X20 17.5T with a SPX Zero ESC in blinky mode.

Thank you for your help.

Your setup doesn't look too far off really.
1mm under all camber link balls seems to work well as a base, I'd go to 2deg rear camber and the bump steer spacer you have in always seemed to make my car loose so I'd remove that completely

Yes I forgot the 1mm under the front chamber link. I used it.

I noticed the 2° rear chamber and try it without the 1mm bump steer. Thank you.

I think your rear is way too soft making the problem worse. You should try raising the rear shocks to the #5 hole when traction is low which will slow down weight transfer side to side .

Try raising your rear diff to the higher position. When grip is low, it allows the car to generate a little more bite in the middle and exit of the corner. Also, add some rear Toe in.

Lastly, tire treatment. What are you using as an additive?
