should be close depending on how hot it is. I use 1.38's kyosho's big bore pistons with 45-fr and 40 rear losi oils. It seems hard at first but as the oil warms up it frees up. Like it becomes lighter oil.

Yeah last time I was there I had 1.4 in the front and 1.28 in the rear and was running 40-30 and it was alright. I really had to push hard into the corner to get it to handle alright. I'd make too many mistakes when I drive that hard. I'm still pretty new with the whole track thing but I think I do alright I can go about 5 mins. before I land on my lid lol. But yeah my goal is to find something more drivable for me. I got some smaller sway bars I am going to try also. I have a new engine coming in though so we'll see how everything works out from there.

I have a set of 1.40's set up with 50 in fr and 45 rear. Losi oil. they work also. the reason I tried the kyosho pistons was for packing. So the chassis was not slapping the ground. I set my ride height at 30mm fr/rear with the sway bar ends all the way to the end of the sway bars. depending on your engine I set up my clutch with mugan 90 springs. I am using a go tec 5 port. Dynamite are my clutch shoes. I think they are some long lasting ones. Best I have ever used,18.00 for 3. Am going to try answer clutch shoes. They come with 3 sets of springs and are the same price as dynamites. Basically you are bogging down the engine enough to stop spinning the rear around all the time. I like you am a beginner. What I have noticed the harder you drive the car the better it handles. It's just getting it set up to a beginning for your self. I have changed the 2 shock towers to aluminum's the chassis braces to kingheadz,the rear is from a jamminx1crt. And the front brace to aluminum. All the carbon-fiber went south right away. also put in the new center drive bones cvd's. You can get them off of ebay from special rc. He is in tiwan.From what chad bradly told me the center drive cups were made of soft steel,they have since been hardend.I have a friend that put 15mm pins in his dog bones. They stick out slightly from the cups but dam if they didn't wear.

I've just driven it in the back yard so I don't have much to say about it yet. It's got killer bottom end compared to the v-spec. I'm happy with it.

I have a set of panther K2's that are in decent shape. I did a REALLY bad glue job but hey it stays on the track. I'll be glad to let you have them. If you're interested I'll re-balance them and bring them out thursday. They'd be better than nothing =/.

Rick,
Will be buildig one up next week. Is there any recommendations for: Motor/Speed Contol combo, Battery size, Suspension setup, Diff setup, Clutch bell size/Clutch springs? Don't want to waste big $$ to try and figure out what many have already figured out that works well. Thanks for any assistance you can provide and looking forward to building/racing the Electric version.

I am running the Tekin stuff. witha 4s 500mah batt. i started with the same set-up as my gas car but i was crazy busy and didnt get to try anything as far as set-up. i was first trying to set-up the motor/speed control for the clutch with mechanincal brake. you have to have a slight brake programed into the speedo to disengange the clutch. i think my speed contol was set-up with level 4 brakes and level 2 drag brake. and i ran the stock clutch springs that came in teh conversion.

What i wanted to do if i had the time would be to go to a softer front spring and mayber lighter rear diff oil. but i did run a faster lap with my electric over my gas in quals, but not sure about the mains.

Also get a Hotbodies D8 servo horn for the steering so the link clears the servo. other than that it was really fun!
