yeah motoman i used to race motocross but not very seriously i won a 125 beginner class race in 97' i was 16. i still ride i currently have a crf450x its a blast i raced it once but just for fun i was the only one in my class 25+beginner i take it to the track every now and then for fun, i just bought a cbr600rr so now i can ride almost everyday for work. good luck with that engine it will be fast.

see i told you what happened had you bought a more expensive buggy you would have when cheaper on the gear but since you got the hyper 8 you will have all top of the line equipment that will last you the next 5-8 years (not including engine of course but servo's and radio) let me tell you this it is much much more fun to drive a car with top of the line electronics.

front:
3,000 diff oil
inside hole on arm second hole out from inside on tower.
1.4mm pistons 40wt. oil stock blue springs. 10mm pre load
6 degree kick up
20 degree caster block.
middle ackerman hole.
upper camber link location.
0 degree toe in/out
0mm sway bar pre load

center:
3,000 wt. diff oil
jammin crt fiberglass brake rotors.

rear:
2,000 wt. diff oil
inside hole on arm third hole out from inside on tower
1.4mm pistons 30wt. shock oil stock blue springs 2mm pre load
3 degree anti squat
306mm (narrow) rear track width
drilled rear camber link
3 degree rear toe in
2mm sway bar pre load.
middle wheelbase

if you like more steering use the rear ackerman hole if you would like less steering use the middle hole on the front shock tower.

i dial out lot of droop but i also like the rear end to have more droop than the front by about 2mm. (i'am refering to tightening the droop screws as dialing out and more droop by loosining the droop screw) if you are traction rolling at all with this setup tighten those droop screws. or if the car feels unstable tighten those droop screws.

i would also like to hear what some of you guys think of this setup. so if you try it out i'am sure you won't be dissapointed but i would like to know what you think. if there is anything i forgot let me know.
Hi Rocket42

I think I would like to give your set-up a shot this coming Sunday race. The only difference I would make is using the lower camber link hole for the front suggested by you in your later post, as I am not getting enough turning traction plus power on pushing even with new CF(M2 with molded medium insert) tire.

By the way, what are the following mentioned in your set-up & what are their purposes ?.

1) Front 6 deg. kick up
2) Rear 3 deg. anti squat
3) 306mm (narrow) rear track width

Talking KK.....

Front kickup refers to the flatness of the lower front hinge pins. The flatter thay are the more side bite your front end will have when you slow down. The more kick up = better rough surface traction and on power forward bite.
This also adds to your castor value.

Anti squat = flattness of the lower rear pins. The principle is the same in the rear as it is the front. Flatter is better on smooth tracks and gives side bite when slowing. Antisquat (or kicking the forward section of the pin upwards) is better for rough surfaces and forward traction when you speed up.

Narrow track width is more responsive and wider track width is more stable. He is opting to run the narrow track width in the rear.

Hope this helps,
TEX

Hey Dibbs - you need to come to Dallas one Friday night and run at SRH with us.
We need some more Hypers to help me beat up on all of these Xray guys.

kk-racing i think you will like the setup you should just run it the way it is posted first and if its a tight track just change to the rear hole on the ackerman (steering plate) for more steering.

i have been running this setup for awhile and for me it is enough steering more steering than my jammin. but if it is not enough steering you will know exactly what to do to improve it.

when i get to the track next (may be a couple of weeks) i am going to test drilling the third hole in the front arm and changing the front camber link and see which setup works best.

Thanks tex1 for the clear explanation & Rocket2 for the advice.

Maybe tex1 would want to drop by here & help me kick some of those X1CR guys asses. Over here the X1CRs dominate the scene, as well as the podium finish most of the time. We have only about 2 ~3 Hyper8s including mine & a mixture of XB8, MP777, MBX5, Lightning-Pro & Storm CL-1.
