Wor, 40 front tires with 37 rear! Very interesting. Can you share your setup with us and what type of track condition you run on. Thank you in advance!!!

He seems to have "wonder Tyres".
I tried a lot, very lot, but the car was only going with 2 or 5 shore softer in front.

Hi Stephan:

LOL, I am running 32 front 35 rear xceed now. I tried a few combo and can't use harder front as the car would push like crazy..... BTW: I move the front lower arm back a little by putting the shims in front of the a-arm. (You need to put shims between the a-arm and the anti roll bar "mount") To reduce the caster and to my suprise it give the car a lot more steering, both turn in and exit. If you have a chance to run your Edam give it a try.

Hello
Dont laugh, but for my home-race-track, i cut out a piece ob bracket for upper arms to bring they more to front. The short Wheelbase, i was driving allways, lower arms totaly back. This changed the Ackermann-Effect to. Good goin in corner an less toe-in at rear, the car was quick, but hard to drive
The next, i will try if snow is away, springs in front with same rate as rear and damper same as rear. I think, rear is to soft. And Edam gives us no spring-rate for their colors, so i will try it with my serpent springs.
Stephan

olla
blue green and purple?
In Germany there were only purple (soft) and grenn (normal) offered.
What i will try next year is 2 holes in absorber front, 1 in absorber rear, W30 Oil in both, red or yellow serpent springs in front and blue in rear. And of course, more camber-change in rear with spacers between rear upper arm and uprights.
It can be, that ground and tyres between your country and my is different, so setup have to be different to.
Im not one of the fast drivers, think im more a "gentleman driver", but the car should do, what i want. And with the Edam i have some work to do in future, to make the car so, as i want.
But, when i see, what the distributors all make and how Edam works, i have not a good feeling for future.

To be hornest Edam is quite active and will have a few new models (current types of cars and in different classes) next year. Looking forward to try their new cars soon. You setup look quite similar to what we runs here as we run on a mid grip mid size track here. I add 5-7mm space between the camber link and the rear upright to get the right camber rise. Sorry I don't have the exact number as I don't have the car with me now. The rear end is a lot more predictable and with your front end mod I think you should be quite happy with the new setup.

Hello
So as i heard, edam will promote the new Razor in Nürnberg at Toy Far in February and sell it bevore Season starts. If they will be to late again, they will loose here in Germany totaly, because Xray is starting with their 1:8 and Capricorn has shown Cad-Cam-Pictures in net from their first 1:8.
It´s angrily for me that i lost some of my good connections. To Nürnberg i have only 130 km, but i can´t go because im not a seller so i have no entrance......

Yep ....... The Razor 2 is alive and kickin' here in Malaysia.

$ for $, a perfectly good performer and the parts cost so little compared to it's pedigree brethen. Fitment of plastic parts has improved tremendously compared to the bygone Yusa days and the OS2 revision opens up unlimited tyre choice for the Razor. The Alpha pipe (essentially a Nova 2052) with switchable stinger venturi an interesting addition that allow low end and top speed tuning.
