Hi All,

Found the diff case along with gasket, at http://www.rcprocenter.net/servlet/t...-Gasket/Detail does anyone where I can diff gaskets on their own?

Also can anyone tell me if these http://www.rcprocenter.net/servlet/t...teering/Detail come with all the inserts, or do I also have to buy BB2050.

Guys are you using CNC or plastic chassie braces?

Let's share some tips like, Tony did in the past, come on guys.

Thanks for your help

Well after my first run with the car at practice, WOW, what a well designed and built buggy! I have driven almost every 1/8 buggy out there and this one drives very well. Turn in is awesome! It is very stable and predictable and that was just the stock settings. I ran it hard all night and no breaks or hiccups.

I gotta give TQ Racing some props. The 2009 parts definitely make the buggy light on its feet and the tires I used had trouble keeping up with the acceleration this buggy produces.

I can't wait until next practice to try some things.

Default Lets keep the team moving

Sorry I will keep you guys up on what we are doing,currently I am using the plastic brace combination.It seems to help the car on bumpy tracks,The big change we are seeing is with the 09 parts the car really spools up so we feel like we are getting closer on the acceleration side for the tracks that need more snap.

I will post our latest setup,it seems to work really well on all the tracks we have tested it on except those high bite oh tracks will have to ask Mr Curt May to help us with that.

Front
Lower Roll Center
Middle hole on top a arm and caster block
Caster 22 degrees
Front springs Jammin Blue
Front Oil 35
Front Diff 4000
Middle hole on tower outside hole on arm Full droop

Center Diff 5000

Rear
2 degrees ant squat for most out door tracks 2.5 if it is really smooth
Camber link lower hole on tower all the way in
furthest hole out on hub carrier
Lower mounting position on hub carrier height
Rear tower middle hole in
Rear Arm furthest hole out
Rear Tow 3.5 if low bite and big track
3.0 med bite med size track
Shock Oil 25 or 27.5
Stock Silver Spring
Rear Diff 1.000

We are using light shock oil because of the weather here if you are running were the temperature is above 60 to 65 degrees you can raise the front weight by 5 or 10
