I was going, but I decided to go race closer in Tampa, and then in Alabama. Maybe next year. I miss racing at Hemet and SV. I also liked Lake Perris, Thunder Alley, and Pro-line.

give me some info on your track and ill try and give you a ball park setup

BTW if i miss understood your post let me know so i can give you the right info


as far as UN just go to edit profile and you should be able to go from there and change it
Yeah Rob I did not mean bash at all I do not bash and never did I just strickley race. I just ment to ask (so you ran 5-10-4 in the lsd diffs because all I hear is you can only run grease in the lsd diffs) So I just wanted to make sure you were talking about the lsd diffs with that setup or with Gene's cross pin coversion. So sorry for getting you confuesed. Great news I got the Kit in today and I am going to start building it saturday night or sunday or heck maybe I will start on the shocks right now. Also I just thought of the same thing on the post about putting the 9mm offset adapters on man sorry I just have so much stuff running through my head right now I am not thinking straight. So yeah I am just going to run the 1/2 offset 23mm rims now and then just go to the matrix 17mm adapters whenever. Thanks again Rob

Default Hey Rob

Thanks Rob Hey I have one quick question I am building the shocks right now and I was wondering do you think I should go #1 pistons up front and #2 in the rear with 30wt oil in front and rear. The track I am going to be running on this week is a mid size track, teknical, lots of jumps,rithem sections, probley around mid bilte, smooth track brand new layout so everything is nice smooth and rolled do not know if it will groove out or not.

that sounds like a good setup to start with
or you can try #2s all the way around with 60 up front and 30 in the rear

30 wt in the front is way too soft. Try 700cps or 60wt.

Default Thanks guys

Yeah rob I went #2 pistons all the way around and 30wt all the way around for not I will see how it does if it is way to soft for my liking then I will go to 60wt all around. Now I am building the diffs I am going to go with your setup as a starting setup Rob 5-10-4 because a guy came into my lhs yesterday and he ran 5-7-4 and he said the tires balloon to much so he went 5-10-4 and he loves it. So I am pretty sure I am going to try that setup to start with. Thanks again Rob

well 30 is way to soft as gene said cause i had 50 and was still pretty soft when you go to 60wt just do the front you dont have to go all around cause then the rear will be way to stiff so just do 60 in front 30 in rear

no problem

lockmouth - are you using the Mugen MBX5-T springs? I have a pair of red front and rears for the MBX5-T, but both sets are taller than the Matrix green spring sets.

BTW - how was the AIC race?

Also, I did all the Lunsford/X-Ray linkage mods to my TR Arena; looks good and tough as nails!

The 3tS2 is what I use on my truck. Less anti squate is better in the bumps and more give more forward traction.

Yea I'm using the red mugen spring, they are taller so you shouldn't need any preload if ya build them with the right fluid.

The AIC 5.0 was a great event, when i say CEN was in the house ,I mean it. As for me, my truck was great, but the driver is still learning. I'm getting better each time out with my Matrix TR.

Tell me how you like the turnbuckle mod once you try it. I love my TR even more now since I don't have to worry about the Lundsford turnbuckles bending. Everything is solid on my TR now, I just need to get on the same level as the TR
