Glad we got you dialed in steve.

1 deg anti squat and the hinge pin in the upper position on the rear hub and you shouldn't be loose. Note that you have to check your ride height by measuring from the ground to the rear toe plate. Your rear arms should be below level. Also I run the yellow springs

Yeah! Thanks Manufacturercup. I might try playing with the front sway bar but if you look a few pages back I'm running Manufacturercup's set up. the 1 degree plate helped a lot but that arm adjustment just changed the whole buggy. First race today so we'll see how it handles around other people

David_Aw, Yes I still run the 5,5,5. Exactly how Manufacturercup has it posted.
Jammin X2-CR ?? (buggy?)

Look for post #379

Whats the theory behind moving to the upper hole in the hub and the rear being more planted? Sounds interesting......

Car still doesn't feel planted I might try putting 3 in the rear.

Just wondering, I have the carbon fiber front top steering plate and the cnc. Which should I use? Is the cnc worth the extra weight?

I don't think anyone could notice the extra weight. I would run the CNC one though. I'll take the one you don't choose though

Never hurts to have a spare. the main reason I would use the cnc is because it helps keep down the flex in the steering, which is usually not good!

i bought my buggy used when it was an x1 and it had kings head top plate and i switched to the carbon fiber one because someone gave it to me and it was brand new almost and it cracked the first race so ill just stick with the metal one.

Which mean to say back to 5,5,3 ? What is your setting for the upper B block and rear? Do you guys drop all to the most bottom holes to make it low CG?
