We had a club race this weekend with a nice contingent of vancouver racers joining us. weather was kinda iffy in the morning but turned out to be quite a nice sunny day by mains time.
spec r cars were well represented with blake continuing to show off his S2; Not quite able to take Tq from craig but qualifying a very strong second overall.
I Turned my R/S1 mix and match into a full blown R1 with all the hopups i have available; DJC's aluminum servo mount, layshaft carrier ect.
I qualified third overall and finished there.
a real fun main with 1-4 being nose to tail for the full 6 minutes.
Xray T3, Spec-R S2, Spec-R R1, Yokomo BD7.

i was hoping to run my prospec in modified but ended up blowing up my esc after a bad afternoon with nitro.. very easy to plug things in backward when your frustrated apparently =\ so im out for mod at speed weekend but at least i know my stock car is totally dialed for it.
not a lot changed for me but i did try flipping the rear arms around, using a slightly inboard lower shock hole and running a wider serpent 1.2mm swaybar in the rear. I think i was using the C hole to mount that and had a more direct influence swaybar in the back.

I tend to drive stock similar to mod, hit the brakes to pitch the nose in and let the car roll through.
I also went up to a 2000wt dif. overall very happy with that car.

Not expensive but so far looks good. I will let you all know when I have raced it.

That is the same servo that I've been using in my R1 for the last 3 months. It has been solid and reliable. It does have a bit of play, but doesn't seem to be affecting anything. I used a kimbrough saver on it for the first month, but changed to a tamiya saver with aluminum arm and found that it now centers better after big hits compared to the kimbrough.

In that case,II'm curious to hear how well that servo holds up. I've wanted to run without a servo saver, but am afraid to wreck my servo.

I've run without savers on my R1 and S2 that I use for VTA and USGT.

Haven't broken the servos yet. I've had a few hard hits in each.

DBM I figure the servo is only $40 to replace and either me or one of my race buddies have a spare laying around, so if I destroy one then I just put another in. I have been running without a saver for about the last year with no ill affect. I do run outdoor in 10.5T spec.

Default Help with setup?

There are so many things to adjust :-) I go completely blind :-)
Anyway. I've got a fairly stock S1. Setup mostly as the manual says. (shocks built with zero rebound because it's easy :-) )

I run on two different asphalt tracks. One a bit more bumpy than the other. As for grip level. I have no clue, as I have no reference.

I find that I get too little turn-in, and that the rear is way too loose on-power.

Any hints to where I should start adjusting? Springs? (I've got a RSD-kit of springs, so I can do something there), droop? roll-centre?

I need the car to be driveable. And then I can start playing with looking for more corner-speed etc...

Running sorex32 without juice.

If you quite lost with setup, please don't go for a "Mostly as manual" setup... First of all, restore ALL the settings as the manual says, then we can try to resolve the problem with the understeer and the oversteer... :-)

Hehe. Guess you are right.

Will go back to original setup, and come back, if or when I have some more or the same issues.
Thanks!

It's just that the amount of settings is a bit overwhelming for someone who is mainly racing mini-Z's

For me the manual set up was useless. I put stiffer springs all around and raised the inside camber links so the links are parallel (or close to) with the road surface. Then it started to work.

Thanks! That would be great!
I will have a look at the links...
But. Regardless of what setup I have at the moment.
What can I do to get more off-power steering and less on-power steering?
I really want to learn this, not only copying someones setup

Post your setup...it'll make it easier for you to get the help you need. Any set up advice without first seeing your setup may steer you in the wrong direction.
