GT another part we found with the spools down at Reedy is that the front has the same shake due to a slight bind in the CVD as it rotates over center. The shake you have will come back but only at lock.

Hey Dan! What's up man? I'm alive hehe. Took a "nap" yesterday afternoon and woke up at 5am this morning

Good job putting so many Evo3's in the Amain and thank you for the spool. The spool looks bomb proof and it's a keeper. I didn't have time to shim mine up so I left it out and ran David Beale's spool instead. My car needed extra weight so why not add the extra weight to something that needs to be as light as possible and rotates at high speed hahaha. Oh well.

In regards to the front wheels vibrating at full lock, it only seems to occur when we run spools. The vibration is really bad when the wheels are off the ground but seem to mellow out a tad when they're on the track. I look forward to taking out the spool and running a one-way again but I will sure miss the brakes!

Also, the setup that I used was exactly the same one that's been posted here for the last few months. The only changes being made is the decrease in down travel to 5mm instead of 6mm and putting on the front yellow sway bar when the temperature went up and whenever I ran 3-run tires (in the last main I was running 3 Left Rear Tires and one Left Front, woops). Even though my driving looked ragged, it was all under control, sort of ; in corners, I let the car enter wherever it wanted and reacted to get the best speed coming out so that I can setup for the next.

All in all it was great fun and the Evo3 was a blast to drive. I look forward to seeing what kind of laptimes I could do if I were running some 1.18-1.19+ cells at the Tamiya track with its huge straights (as if a 13.9sec lap isn't good enough ).

Default OPEN MOD REEDY SETUP

this is how i ran my car down at the reedy race this weekend. i placed 4th in the B-main, on spot up from my 5th in the B last year... at this rate i will be the champ in 2016!

Front:

Oil- 50wt
piston- 2 hole
2 black o-rings in bladder
spring- associated blue
shock mount- all the way out on tower/all the way out on the arm
camber- neg. 2 degrees
camber link- top middle hole on tower
swaybar- yellow
droop- 24.9mm (measured from the top of axle to setup board.
wheelbase- 2mm forward from stock
blocks level (A block was used front and back)
ride height- 5mm

Rear:

oil- 50wt
piston- 2 hole
nothing in bladder
spring- associated silver
shock mount- one in on tower/all the way out on arm
camber- neg. 1.5
swaybar- yellow
droop- 25.1mm
wheelbase- stock
blocks level (A block was used front and rear)
ride height- 5mm

a protoype spool was used in the front, and the new delrin diff halves from tamiya were used in the rear.

the tires were the spec take-off cs-27

and i ran a reedy KR 10x2 geard at 32/100 for a final drive of 8.1

i also used a protoform stratus 2.0 body.

Great job Rod you drove great and represented Tamiya well.

how are you measuring your droop?

Mine and Pete's cars were the same except front camber link I went back to the inner upper as the front dug to hard in the sweeper and scrubbed speed. The upper rear tower was all the way out also.

The way I measure droop isn't exactly the best but it kinda works (I need a hudy ride height gauge with 1/2mm increments). I take the wheels off the car and measure the lowest part of the suspension arm to the setup board with a ride height gauge. I know it isn't the most ideal but atleast I don't have to try and hold calipers still while I take a reading off the top of the axles. Too much redbull and coffee can do that

I never could figure out your #'s sound like you are running 2mm od droop or so. Not much uptravel?

For me, that's a lot of downtravel/droop. I usually run a lot less than that at Socal. If you thought I was running very little, David Berger was running even less

Hey rtypec,

Will you be at the Tamiya race? If so what is a decent setup since we must run all Tamiya?

Yes, I'll be at the Tamiya Race in a couple of weeks. As for setup, let me try a few things next weekend and I'll post a setup here.

When you remove the urethane spacer, you decrease the amount of "pack" in the shock. Correct me if i'm wrong.

The track I raced at a few weeks ago was moderately bumpy. I removed the urethane spacers in the shocks of my 414M and the car wasn't bouncing around in the corners as much. It really does make a difference!

I do not know what the difference is between using black o-rings and the urethane spacer. Can someone clarify this?
