howdy guys..how was everyones weekends racing?..
I had a good race day yesterday at TFTR. Taking a race win, and sharing the lead in the 2nd final for the whole race until my packs tired.
in the end 8/10ths decided first place overall for the day between myself and club champ Andrew Abbot. this was the closest I have got to defeating the unbeatable record he has held for some time now, Still I was happy as my second place in the Championship was secured by a mere 5 points.
the car was good, it seemed to handle the changing conditions better than the associated.
there was a new car in the field, the losi xxxs, which looked to be fast, but after having a drive I wasnt that impressed with its handling.
I ran the setup which I have run for months now, with the only change was my shocks to the outer hole on the rear tower.
orange spring, 30 wt oil, 4hole piston, outer hole on tower
5 mm ride height, 10mm droop
.5 deg toe out
1 deg camber
standard ackerman pos
white spring, 30 wt oil, 4 hole piston, outer hole on tower
5.5mm ride height, 12mm droop
1.5 deg toe in
1 deg camber
#4 camber pos, with short hubs
takeoff 27 (w/std inserts)
split top deck
30 grams on front bumper
(note this setup works well on low to med traction asphalt, and with minimal changes hooks up in high traction...)
