The man cup track was one of a kind..... all we did all week was dial traction out of the car, like onroad. with 2-2.5 degrees of anti squat Billys car would traction roll on throttle, wierd. so going lower took that away.

We're working on new anti squat blocks that will allow us to run .5-1.5 with the same bushings.

I agree with Jpalessi. I was on a really loose track and went up to 3* anti squat which I thought would help. It made the car very twitchy. I went all the way down to 2* and it was a lot better. I also used +2mm hubs and seemed to make it a bit more stable. I'm going out in a bit to try it on our new fresh layout at dirtburners!
I'd like to go lower in anti squat, so let me know if and how you do it.

I've been using Adobe Photoshop for mine. Here's a copy in JPG format, if you have a photo editing program you should be able to insert text on it. Otherwise you would need the full version of Adobe Acrobat... I have it and I will see if I can create a PDF that is more of a fill in the blank type file. As long as that's ok with Tony..?

Hmm... been having trouble with the site lately..seems to be very slow. Maybe it's just my computer/internet connection. Try this one. If this doesn't work send me your email address and I will email it to you.

-------Edit--

Tony, you should change your sig links so the public reading can easily click on it as a link instead of copy/paste. Just a suggestion...

I removed the shrink wrap a while back, thinking I had a problem with the Reg. Turns out, it was the battery wires. I have been lazy in not putting new wrap on, or replacing this Reg with a brand new one that I have as a spare...but all in all I have had no problems.
Thanks for the Pic, much appreciated buddy.

Sweet pics. That turn marshal is askin for trouble grabbing a buggy like that. Fingers close to driveshafts on a 1/8 is a nono, its probably ok when the driver is in control, but runaway or something...

Carlos...I am not Mark, lol. I don't know his full set up, but we did talk a little bit yesterday. I do know he told me he's currently running 5/6/1 diffs (I'm pretty sure he said 1 in the rear. If I remember correct, he said 40/30 shocks/stock front springs/ Kyosho Yel/Green rear. I also spied R/L 3 caster clips on the front end. I don't remember if it was R on the right/L on the left...which would = 22* not counting kick up, or if it was R on the left/L on the right which would = 16*...but I'm pretty sure it was the first, meaning
22*. That's about all I know. Hope this helps.


Philly...that is Mark marshalling, lol. He's been around long enough to know...but by the same token, in the heat of the moment, ya do what ya gotta do to get the vehicle righted n on it's way. Mad props to Mark for taking that chance.

I know I have had a few run-ins marshalling over the years. With the angle of that picture I think it looks worse than it is really. I always try to hold the brakes when a marshal is near, not everyone does I notice, I would rather stall than injure someone trying to keep my car running.
