Over a bump or maybe a sharp corner is this from to stiff of suspension ? Possibly the tires ? Roll center need to be moved closer to cg ? I was running on a blue groove high traction indoor track with bar codes maybe it was a traction bite causing the roll not sure
Can you please post a complete set up sheet?

Default Did use D8T hex wheels

I experienced as well how the D812 oversteers. I did some tweaks on the buggy by using D8T hex wheels on the rear of the D812 to add rear track-width to increase rear grip at corner entry as well as high-speed on-throttle steering. Here are some other changes I've made:

FRONT:
shock oil: 40 losi
Rebound: 25%
upper shock tower: #3
lower shock tower: #2
Suspension arm shock position: #2
Sway Bar: 2.2 mm

REAR:
shock oil: 27.5 losi
Rebound: 25%
upper shock tower: #2
lower shock tower: #1
Suspension arm shock position: #2
Sway Bar: 2.5 mm

DIFF OILS (used Mugen brand):

F: 5000 C: 3000 R: 2000

The rest of the set ups are on Ty's set up sheet on Dirt Nitro.

Since then, I was able to run the D812 harder than before.

I ran this setup at revelation raceway last Saturday for Summer series with great result

Your track doesn't have many jumps I would suggest using 1.3x8 pistons with 30wt rear and 40wt front, it should calm the car down which seems to be bouncing around a lot.

Can anyone tell me if the d812 and hara are the same shocks just different sizes or are they different in some other way?

I am aware of the lengths that is why I posted that the length of the D812 shocks is what I am in need of but want to know if there are other differences I don't know about like taller caps or different bladders or seals or internal bore sizes. I never asked what lengths they were you answered my question the first time the same way but I don't think either time you actually read the question. I don't have a Hara as stated I used to have one and thought the shocks were the best I have worked with but the hara shocks are not long enough for my current buggy and the D812 shocks are the right length I just want to make sure the shocks are the same with the exception of the body lengths and shaft lengths. Please someone who has built both the hara shocks and D812 shocks can you confirm that the shocks are the same with exception of body and shaft lengths?

nice track! the conditions are very loose, slippery and bumpy. does it clean up on a race day and give better traction?

by the way... i would use alot more air filter oil than what you currently are, especially with those loose and dusty conditions. you should be oiling both parts of your filter liberally. dust particles are smaller than the holes in your air filter and dust will kill your engine very quickly!

interesting obversation nick. i would agree except i would have thought it was unavoidable since the track is so bumpy. are you saying it is possible to smooth that out some more? can you please explain a bit more what you are thinking?

thanks
jason
