Default Ackerman/Steering/Upperarms

Hello.

Can someone please help me with setup for the mbx6.

Ackerman settings:
I like the car to stear tieght and strong. At the moment i am having trouble 50% out the corner, nose is going to much outwards.

And:

Front Upperarms/Anti Squat:
Position of the upperarms... Move them to the front helps? Or to the back.? I feal very much steering moving them to the front, but this should be wrong for bumpy track.?

So any recommendation are more than welcome, total setup for bumpy tracks, that i can try out maybe. Really need a perfect setup for season 2010, to many problems this year.

At the moment i am running front 10.000/7000/7000 in diff's

Regards

I am sure you will get more responses in the Mugen MBX6 thread. There is a lot of knowledge there.

Hi Shem.

Nothing beats practical experience, but if you want to learn the theory behind the set up, you should read HUDY Off-road & Truggy Set-up Book:

See you at races in 2010?

Cheers

Understeer problems?

Drop to 7/5/3 diffs or 5/5/5

Increase rear camber to -3 or greater.

Akerman to the rear unless your on a real big track.

Use the optional underdrive gear on the rear diff. That way the front spins faster in the front giving more on power steering and dragging the rears off power giving more turn in. (In some areas this can also cause more understeer, sometimes it works.......)

Default try this....

I tuned a few, and the first thing is to move the upper arms to the front all the way, put 40 wt oil all the way around, maybe 45 in the front, put 5-7-3 in the diffs, and put one thinner front swaybar on the front. the shock travel is really long so putting spacers in the shocks to limit it just a little, maybe 2mm f and rear, then tires, depending on the track I like aka tires best right now they last forever too. Go ove the pivot balls relly well, there may be a binding problem you haven't seen, and mostly check the toe in out. I like perfectly strait myself and play around with the end point adjustments, and try a larger aluminum servo horn, adjust brakes more to the rear, and lighten up on the front brakes. Try not to limit the ride height in the front it can drive weird too low. I hope this helps.....
