Where did you get the raceberry chassis?

The most of them drives the car very narrow in the rear, what is the reason for that and what effect did it have?

Thanks for your help and greetings from Germany

The P05 narrows the front rear of the car to provide arm sweep.

The narrower rear end provides additional steering at the sacrifice of stability (In our testing).

Our Gridworks Racing team had the highest VBC finish at Reedy in the open modified class (Second) and did so without running a narrower rear end.

Ultimately, the clock should be the determining factor, but these choices are often a matter of preference, track and or driving style and are not a one size fits all solution.

My best recommendation would be to give the narrower a rear end a shot and see for yourself. I ran a narrow rear end for some time and ultimately prefer the wider rear end on more flowing and lower bite layouts.

I just picked up a DB06 sedan. I look forward to running it at Tamiya and at Cal Raceway coming up. Any suggestions for 17.5 setup ?

I saw Randy and Team Gridworks setups but they are really different.

Thanks Lemar.

Is Team Gridworks , Kyle ?
Kevin, you are back racing onroad racing again? The last time I saw you was as one of the big off road races at SDRC.

We've been running the D06 on asphalt since day one.

Randy's setup was a medium grip setup that needed a few tweaks for the high bite that was experienced at Tamiya during Reedy. Anyway, shoot me a PM. I am expecting to be at Tamiya the day prior to the Lyman race for a little practice.

Are the blocks and arms and c-hubs the same on the ghost as the D06?

Yup. All the suspension plastics are the same with the exception of the shock plastics. Suspension mounts are also the same.

Randy's setup is a mod setup, the aggressive asphalt setup is a spec setup

Im working on one, but its for VTA and it uses the Dynamics aluminum chassis. My current set-up is close to what I like, but it leans a bit too but through the turns. I will hopefully have something dialed in this weekend.

If your running 17.5, it should get you in the ballpark. Ill post something when I have it.

Here is my build, went together really good. Quality is top notch for sure. Only thing I noticed, the screw count was a little off. missing some 3x6 flatheads. not a big deal but have heard this was an issue before I got the kit. We have an offroad race this weekend, so this thing will see its maiden voyage next week, excited about it actually.

They are the hiro seiko screws, the shims and the lugnuts are the 3 racing ones. Luckily they are all the same color red. Adding the screws made it a completely different look. Just need to make sure I do a clean install for the electronics.
