Hot bodies will work. But the holes are smaller and youll have to remove some material at the bottom to clear the camber link.

Option 2: get a custom tower with body post holes 5mm higher from bezerk rc on face book.

My Dynamics before its first run last Friday. Very rusty driver meant I didn't learn much other than boosted 17.5 is a lot of fun

Running the D06 in USVTA and have come up with a decent starting set-up for med-high grip carpet. I also did a swaybar mod to make sway tweek easier. I cut the sway bars back 10mm front and rear, and used ARC parts to finish it off. The rear uses Medium legnth ball studs and long in the front. The links on the sway bars are ARC sway links.

Just wondering if anyone has an idea about the following issue.

When my vehicle comes out of a corner and you get back on the gas, the rear end snaps around.

I increases my rear shock oil from 350 to 500 and that made a huge improvement...

Standing up the rear shocks or a stiffer rear bar may be a better alternative. Good luck. :-)

I was also chasing a similar issue, turned out I needed to tighten my belt. Make sure both belts are equally tight and it should fix the issue

Really need some details on the setup of the car and track surface.

With our cars running 21.5 turn motors, we found on a very low grip track, too much weight gets transferred to the front of the Car on entry of the corner, under brakes. Decreasing droop on the rear helped. Screw in the droop screws 1/2turn and see if that helps.

Also the diff oil weight is important. On my track, had to run 700cst. On heigher grip track 1000-3000 is needed. The lower the diff oil cst, the softer the power is applied on corner exit.

To much punch
Try adjusting your speedo settings
This may help ��

Thanks for the ideas! I'll give them a try.

If anyone is interested, I've made a gearing chart for easy reference.

OK I just installed the aluminum chassis. So what do I have to do different with setup compared to the graphite? Is there a good baseline setup for the aluminum chassis?

The alumninum is stiffer so it wont flex as much as the graphite. So youll need to soften the suspension up some. How you do that is up to you.

Has anyone had an issue with the chassis breaking at the front around the bumper area
I can't seem to see any kind of bumper brace??
