So today was the first real full race day where nothing went terribly wrong right away
my RR was ballanced, fun, and very nimble. Where everyone else was struggle'n with massive push (a highly technical track, 150ft straight, with an average 20-22 second lap). But the RR was good with off and on power turning, and the ass end had grip in a straight line but would let the car rotate in the corners well.
I am extremely happy with the ride! I didnt win though, I corrected on the straight, and accidentally clipped a rubber bumper thing on the wall... sent the car through the air for about 20ft, and snapped the right front nuckle in half. (but DAMN are the Kyosho's durable!!)
The car's setup for a "good" grip parking lot racing surface, a lil dirty:
-2Deg camber at 1G
1Deg Toe out
50 weight Shock oil
Stock Droop settings (adjusted for tire wear)
50,000 weight in the front diff
Sway set flat (minimum sway)
26mm 40 Shore Fronts (Spider/Enneti)
10k Weight Diff
50 weight shock oil
Stock Droop setting
1.5Deg Toe in
Stock sway position.
30mm 35 Shore Rears (Spider/Enneti)
the car also sports a modified brake setup, I used a few coils off my 1/12th scale front suspension in between the brake pads so the pads are essentially sprung and never drag on the disk. gearing in the center is the 2 smaller spurs, the 22T 1st and 26T 2nd with 39T hard ring gears in the diff cases.
the weight bias is like 49F 50R and cross weight is 50/50 I also have the gray clutch shoe in which has made the car MUCH more forgiving on a surface with fair traction, I also have the spring set a bit more loose on the clutch to make it easier to pull a car at slow speeds through a corner.
