Ah..hated that jump.

If the screw was even a tad loose it's gonna help the rear arm break. Besides..landing that far outta shape deserves getting broken!

brownie - I've never had a problem with the Punisher links so that is what I use. The Super Duty ones are good, but you need different ballcups.

mgtman - It can happen. If you bump the engine back down on the start box it'll usually kick the engine over forwards.

Default b main set up

HI I've been reading this whole thread.( up to page 7.LOL)
Here is my question;
I'm an old fart and been in the hobby for about a year.
At best I can almost win the B main at times. Missed by 6 seconds last sunday.

I see a lot of set up advise BUT I'm curious how different a set up for a medium driver like me would be compared to a "pro" like you guys?

so far with my MF2 I have all the stock out of the box but I put yellow springs on the back.Ifmars pins on the rear.

I race indoor on a very tight hard pack sometimes dusty dirt.

mod( 19 single) and stock

Trixter - Make sure your diff isn't too tight..that will help corner speed quite a bit. I'd run a longer camber link to help keep the truck flatter and rail around the corner. You may want to add anti-squat to get more on-power steering as well.
Thanks Aaron I will give it a try.

A pro setup might have too much steering. As you learn throttle control you start to want more steering but that usually frees up the rear end. For someone new it tends to be more forgiving and result in faster lap times if the car pushes a little more. It forces you to slow down for the corners and you spin out less. It if faster and more consistant to slow down for a corner and acclerate out then to go hot into a corner and spin out and have to turn yourself around! I would say that would be the biggest difference from what I have seen. A veteran seems to always want more steering.

Yeah it is one of those things you see everyonce in a while. It is funny to see a noobie have it happen for the first time. They have this perplexed look on there face like HUH? They normaly stop it and try again but it is one of those priceless looks the first time it happens!

Aaron, you mentioned to try to add anti-squat, and I have hear that term before, but how do you go about doing that. Thanks

pigpen - To add anti-squat, you have to put washers in between the chassis and the pivot block on the two front screws that hold the block to the chassis.

(That sounded a lot more complicated than it needed to be...haha).

auto2 - Casper was right..the only difference I've ever seen is the fact that better drivers like a faster reacting car (sometimes). There are tracks that EVERYONE goes faster with a slow-reacting car, and setups usually end up working for everyone.

Another big thing seems to be the rear of the car..a lot of less-experienced drivers seem to soften up the rear of the truck, which will make the truck roll and square up easier, helping them to straight.

Yeah, when i started, i found/had a smooth set-up soft rear, very easy to drive, almost too eazy. But now i try & run a soft rear, my truck feels like a slug, like it's moving in slow motion.
