Dotman,

Thank you for reporting the issue. The issue was on my hosts end and was corrected without my intervention.

The Flex Upper Deck deck just sold out two days ago, but they are already on order and will arrive late next week. I would recommend clicking the "Join Waitlist" button to be notified automatically when the item arrives back in stock.

Have you had an opportunity yet to run your D06?

no, i'm building the kit this weekend to run at the hpi challenge next week. i'm going to start with the tamiya setup on your site.

thanks for the tip on ordering. i will do that

question, what do you think of the 2.25 lower and 1.6 upper decks? have you tried them? if so, how did you like them compared to the stocks pieces?

thanks,
Oliver

If I were you, I would start with the Aggressive D06 Asphalt Setup that was posted on 1/6, shorten the wheelbase by an additional 1mm up front and see how you like it. Oh, be sure to run with a fresh set of tires, but I am sure you know that.

The 2.25mm Flex Chassis and 1.6mm Flex Upper Deck IMO is overkill for the tracks you'll be racing. The car will feel good, but it will be too hooked up.

I'll be out of town again next week, but let me know what you think. We work very hard and put a lot of time into these setups.

excuse me which is the meaning of hooked up? I don't come from a english-speaking country, I'm sorry.

However I've completed my fist race ever with my new d06, I have to say that it is a great car. unfortunately I finished only 8th, due to the lack of training and experience with the car (second time ever) but setting the 4th fast lap of the day considering that the first two are both national champions, I'm pretty satisfied. I have used the aggressive set up but with c05 (a little arm sweep) in front and 350 in the shocks.
But I am searching for a little bit more of on power steering (I try to put the screw on the top deck but it seems to lose the rear too much on wide corners ). If I want more overall grip I should work on tire treatments or I should try a thinner top deck?
Thank you for help.

Hi,

Hooked up means very good/good grip.

What is the grip level of the asphalt you are running on?

If you need more overall grip, this is usually a tire/traction compound issue.

Can you provide additional information on your track and tire prep?

The track was a cut version of a nitro car track, medium grip, thick grain asphalt.
Tires are lrp g32, lrp top grip asphalt additive, applied 25-30 minuts before run on tires cleaned with brakes cleaner.
Actually the tires were still a bit wet. I use the tire warmer at 65 celsius some absorbent paper on the tires
Thanks for help

Ok, so I am guessing that you are in Europe?

We haven't used LRP tires or the top grip additive for any of our testing, but I am guessing that you have less overall grip than what we generally experience.

Anyway, not knowing your particular track, I would actually try going up a bit on the oils (Around 450/400) because the car has a tendency to roll over too much and become sluggish and unresponsive. You could also try a stiffer rear spring, decreasing front droop or raising the rear roll center from .5-1mm could help as well.

Hopefully some of this works. Good luck!

quick question...the double jointed drive shafts that come with the car come assembled. are they also lubed? can i install them as is or do i need to take them apart and lube them? Also, is that white lube in the kit any good? should i use AE black grease instead?

thanks,
Oliver
