Here is the actual translation from the Square site of the part pictured. I was right for once


Carbon diff. setting plate for ƒ^ƒ~ƒ„ cTb EVO3 It is the plate where screwing adjustment of the diff. which the STB-2C7s XXYEN it ordered to the carbon manufacturer at 1,200 private board thicknesses and processed becomes easy. Quick maintenance is possible by the fact that it makes TC-3, EVO3 exclusive use.

Well I have good news and bad news....

Bad news- shimming the pinion bearing so it doesn't "float" didn't fix the problem with the front oneway ring gears. Might have helped a little... but not fixed. My car glitched horribly the first 3 hours I was at the track today... so I'll let you figure out how I tested it yourselves....lol

Good news- I have a setup for high traction rubber tires (CS-27 premounts). It might have room for a little improvement, but it was so hooked I didn't have enough motor to pull it. It would be awesome in 19turn or probably even with a good Monster motor. We were running crappy Core stock motors....

everything else is kit unless otherwise stated...

Track is outdoor tennis court- smooth except for the cracks (hence the high r/h). Mucho traction.

Front- blue springs
2 hole pistons
50wt
#2 shock tower
yellow swaybar
1.75 camber
0 toe
5mm
6mm droop

Rear- blue springs
2 hole
50 wt
#2 shock tower
yellow swaybar
1.75 camber
B rear toe
5.5mm
7.0mm droop

-cleaned tires w/ motor spray (no compound)

-car felt veeery confident

-I think for stock this setup is so hooked it probably needs the roll centers raised to loosen it up.

-Fernando mentioned the tires "scrubbing" as a reason for losing corner speed, but my tires came off the track looking like they were still new. It wasn't scrubbing, it was just so freakin hooked that it needed to be loosened a hair for stock motors. Like I said, 19 turn it woulda been unbeatable.

Thanks for the Set Up Big Dog.
You know now that the one way topic is raised again I have yet to strip one on my new Surikarn Limited and I have had a few MAJOR stacks including a huge multiple cartwheel end on end
One way so far is perfect, touch wood

How do you measure droop? Iīm using a TC3 droop gauge and measure at lowest/outer part on the arms. Any different?

Randy- I didn't post it.

Mike- It's in Huntsville, AL. The RC3 club I think. Jody Womack and some local fast guys were there. It was fun but my motor was dead in the main. I was really disappointed because I finally got the car sooooper hooked up. Are you thinking about doing some racing out of town Mike? Or just taking a concensus?
