well, i certainly had a great day of racing today. we had 4 inches of rain in the last three days, so the track was pretty muddy. however, my general setup was perfect. tires didn't matter since they got clogged up instantly. nevertheless, i won ALL four heat races (TQ) and i won the A main. i guess my luck from last time showed up. i've got some cleaning to do.

Default Diff oils

I had 571 and after reading what you guys had to say I was willing to try 572. After this weekend of practice I must say I am very happy with my setup.
572 diffs. 35wt oils front and rear. My X1 was flying. I get chills just thinking about it. The car feels so good I dont want to change anything.
Problem is I am flying but still not fast enough to beat the top notch.
I suppose its only consistency that seperates the men from the boys.
I am wanting to try the 10k rear diff oils. Maybe it'll give me the edge.

Well done macnkitty2002.

blanks596, only set the droop while the chassis is sitting on those 2 wheels, nothing else. camber, toe in/out, ride height all have to be set with a full tank of fuel and the car fully loaded with fuel, batteries, radio gear and tires on the axles.

Hey thanks a lot adam. As brianmuffin said regarding ride height, is 26mm in front and 20mm in the rear a good height. I'm thinking thats having the arms approximately level with the chassis. Also, have you or anyone experienced problems with the front shocks rubbing against the upper a-arms at certain positions. I have an x1 pro with big bore shocks and 4mm front shock towers.

ok, that sounds better but as far as 26mm ride height, that sounds about right. 1/10 scale front tires are 26mm wide and when place under the buggy the a-arms are aligned with the chassis. If figure 26mm to 30mm may be ok.

the 26mm and 20mm of droop is measured from the bottom of the arm at the outer hingepin with a rim under each end of the chassis. as for ride height, i would set it up so that the arms are just above level front and rear then adjust for the track from there.

Mankitty it is not going to hurt anything if you keep running them but they will most likely break when you are leading the A-main some where and not during practice.
