Had a good night at practice with the D06. Tiny droop adjustments mane a big difference with this car. Found 0.3s per lap over my first outing. The car does have a bit of a tendency to over-rotate in the second half of the corner though. I'll try to get that sorted out next.
Another club member asked to drive my car, and he crashed it pretty hard a few times. It survived, so good to know that it is durable.

As he doesn't speak English, I am the one to deal with for the sale. PM me if interested!

Hi, i notice that the long shock towers seem to have a slightly different shock mounting position. Care to comment. I would like to understand further before placing the order. Cause from your pictures it looks like i'll be missing 1 or 2 of the lowest shock mounting position from the long shock towers

Race day # 2 in the books for my D06. The car was working good, and I posted a new personal best. Unfortunately I had a spool outdrive assplode in the main. Since I won't have a replacement in hand for this weeks practice or for next weekends race, I modded a spec-R gear diff to fit the front of the D06. I stuffed it with ear plug foam for shock absorption but to still be locked like a spool. This should get my by until replacement outdrives arrive.

It not missing the two lower holes, they are just shifted up. As of now it handles great. I got the towers due to running the car in VTA. The tire size allows for very little up travel when droop is properly set. I was bottoming out the shock before the chassis. This was causing some very weird handling characteristics. New tower, problem solved. It did take some tuning to dail it in. But it runs great now.

Anyone have a good USGT setup for medium-low traction asphalt? Just looking for a good starting point.

It took me a while to get it where its at now but I know it could be better. It has a smaller tuning window than my X-Ray T4 and Tamiya. I'll post my current setup later tonight.

The Australian National titles were held over the weekend in Canberra.
My 12 year old son, Dean, came 4th in the 21.5 class driving the D06 with a flex chassis.
It was the fastest car out there, but we were chasing setup during a rain shortened qualifying sessions and the finals to get a better consistency.

For anyone running on low grip surfaces, the flex chassis is a good option to try.

Default rear suspension blocks

Picked up a do6 about a week ago. Going through setup. i notice that when i went from a E25 on rr with C0 blocks on the FR i have -3 degrees on left rear and -4 on right rear. I went back and put on the E25 and both sides are - 2.5 degrees of toe in on hudy setup gages. New chassis new rear arms and uprights. I had to loosen the suspension blocks a little and tweak in some the right suspension arm and tighten the screws in order to get -3 degrees on R/R. Does anyone know what cause this? Maybe just a bad E30 block? Help please

Most of the time, it's in the rear hubs, which is why the EMF Factory aluminum rear hubs exist.

The RR on my car also had significantly more toe than the LR. I have EMR hubs on the way. I'll measure again once I install them to see if that corrects the problem. Hopefully they will be here in the next couple of days.

Well I spent last night installing the Smokem 2.0mm chassis and topdeck on my D06. Quality is top notch. There are other holes around the Layshaft/motormount that look like you could mount a BD7 motormount or maybe the new D07 mount. Anyone that has one of these know what fits?
