Hey guys I found out that if you have your rear camber link in the 2-A position, or shorter 3-A or 5-A that it will cause your tie rods to bind and not allow your suspension to rebound properly.

I fixed this by using a set of front tie rods in the rear since they are shorter. now I can explore all the rear camber link positions.

Just thought I'd add that in if someone else hasn't already.

I will use a shim there if the collet is worn to the point that it is sinking into the flywheel too far but I normally will just get a new collet (or flywheel depending on what is worn). I'm not saying that it is a bad practice to put a washer/shim there. I'm just saying that it is usually not required.

Gotcha...thanks for the info...I will have to try it sometime.

guys, one thing I noticed, about the screws and o-rings under the radio batt box(RTR) is, its making the chassis hole big...do you think i should tight it and just buy a stiffiner so there will be no movement on the radio tray?

no dont tighten it down all the way. I saw a few people at the cen race that didnt pay attention to how far their screw was in and it accually shorted out their rx battery. I personally do not run the orings under my radio bod and im on the same servo since day one (and I had preordered the car, so I have been having it since day one).

Hmmm, I am running the 5-A on the T and it seems to have the binding effect on that also. I'll have to try the front camber links on this, it also seems like I cant get enough camber using those postions, they are maxxed out and I actually think I may have stripped them going to far. Something felt up when I put this setup on, I had no thoughts that going to the shorter link would be the issue. Thanks for posting that.

im thinking of using the standard screw..that will just fit the box, not the long one that will go through the box...

For people using Bowties or Crimefighters and mounting them on the Losi wheels, what inserts are you using?

If anyone knows the guys over at SGrid can you tell them there is something wrong with the registration as it kept giving me an error message when I payed and got redirected to their site. They also do not have ANY Type of contact info for themselves on their front page....So I paid but cant log in

I used the Pro-line grey foams that came with the tires. Seemed to work good for the little run time I had on them.

Anytime, I was stumped for a day trying to figure it out, luckily I did. I think that using the rear tie rods is a mistake because you can't use every camber position. Ghetto if you ask me, but was easily fixed with a new set of front tie rods.
