Ran the car for the first time today. I got my hands on the car thursday and with the help of rcwck I was able to run today. Using his baseline set up the car handled great right off the pit table! I did snap a cv shaft when I caught the inside board at the end of the straight but was able to finish my run with three wheel drive. It was a pretty hard hit though so I was not suprised.

I did figure out i need lots more motor though. stuff is on order.

I think i know whats going on with the shafts now! Its not the strength of the metal. The problem is that the little nipple thats supposed to locate into the end of the axle snaps off. The reason it snaps is that when you are at full lock or hit something the nipple pops slightly out of the axle and when you center the steering it doesnt reset properly and snaps off, the shaft the goes floppy as the dcj doesnt have any support and the shaft then snaps because of the extreme angles its working at because of the extra stress. Thats just my theory anyway after breaking 4 shafts in 2 weeks racing and thats with not one broken front c hub, and im still on the kit spec ones

I don't know if it would work but try to put the front shafts in the back and back in the front. I have done this once in my xray. I wanted to see how much streeing the swing shafts made. But this would be a good test. One other thing I know car set ups are different for everyone . I like lots of steering so I don't think I ever have full lock on.

Ok so Sunday we went to Cal Raceway for the T4T race and there were 4 of us running H4's and we all made our A-mains, with Dylan TQ for itermediate and Mario and Doug also making the main. The race got off to a good start for Dylan and finishing for the win and Mario working hard and fighting for 3rd as they were bumper tagging each other and losing time to the two leaders. I my self battled to start 2nd in my race in expert stock, i was lacking a little motor so the battle was good as I raced with 3rd for a long time but my cars cornering was dialed and ran the lines tight. They had more bottom end than I did so my timing on my motor was too much and took a while to get up to speed but when I got to the infield the car pulled away only for them to catch me back on the straight but eventually they hit a dot and I was away as i was consistent till the end of the race, It was fun racing the H4 and you could see the chassis flex grabbing the track.

3 hole pistons front and rear
27wt AE oil front and rear
-1 front camber
green springs front and rear
-3 rear camber
long wheel base on the rear
6 o'clock position on the front spool
4 o'clock on the rear with one shim on each holder on the rear
two 1mm shims on the inside camberlink on the rear
-1 degree toe out on the front
5mm front ride height
5.5 mm rear ride height
Mazda Speed 6 body
droop 4 and 4 with YR set up tools

mine was going fantastic on sunday, went back to the stock shocks, with 25wt, 3 hole and standard white springs, 2 degrees camber all round, kit oil in rear diff.

qualified pole in the 17.5 blinky, and only missed out by just over 1/2 a second. finished 1st and 2nd in the 2 finals, manages to get ahead of an awesomatix, mi5, tc6.1, mi4cxl, trf 417x, xray t4's so the car definatly has potential, cannot wait for the next big meeting, but going to concentrate on my 12th and m chassis beforehand.

Apparently the wrong kill shot 17.5. Geared 42 to 47 pinion on a 92 spur. 45/92 seemed to be the best with 20deg of timing.

Tried to fit those Tamiya 42216 front drives with no success. It has been posted that there is not enough clearance in the chub for steering movement and I concur. You'ld have to open up the chub a ton for clearance and don't think that would be advisable. Additional bearings are also needed. The factory is working on a stronger driveshaft.

Sam, can you be specific about the install of these Tamiya drives?
