Qualified 54 After a consistent 3 place pace reeled in first & broke when lap traffic closed the door on me overall had a great time. As for car it will be overhauled & try something new I set up an agressive set up on the car & besides the clutch issue the car did exactly what I wanted
Here is a little set up
diff fluid 50,000 wt
front spool Loved it
4 mm ride ht tires 42 shore all around trued to 58
camber 3.5 rear & links in bottom position, shocks layed down
front camber 2.5 caster links 1mm front 3 mm rear
shock oil stock front springs grey 1.8
rear shocks light blue 1.7
0 toe out 3 toe in
I tested this set up for three weeks & the car was very aggressive in techincal tracks & responded great
Also tested the ufo clutch system worked great in my other practice car
as for my clutch issues thanks for the help it all came down to the spring was getting to compressed & getting stuck I highly recommend the silver clutch spring & going to 1.4mm on the clutch nut it will give you a tremendous snap as for pinions it's trial & error depending on track size the stock felt really good for the GLC
My setup was a lot different, My car was really good untill I broke it in warm-up for the B'main and missed the first few mintes of the race, but the car handled very well and had tons of steerin and was not loose at all.
Front Camber 2° Front Toe Out 1° each side
Blue TM 1.7 springs with 800wt oil with 2 hole pistons
Rear Camber 3 1/2° with 1° toe in each side
Aqua TM 1.6 springs with 800wt oil with 4 hole pistons
In the main I ran 37 fronts 60mm Nitro Shoes and 40 rears 61mm Nitro Shoes
In qualifying I ran 37's all the way around at 58 and 58.5 mm
I ran 50,000 wt diff oil in qualifying and 30,000 in the main.
I ran the front 1-way the whole time with a Mazda 6 body.
I really just needed more cosistant motor performance.
I used the orange 1.7 TM clutch spring with the brass fly-weights with the clutch nut at about 1mm.
My 2 cents.
