Sharp eyes! Yes the tubes are on backwards though I doubt that will effect the handling much. With the ESC in front of the link I was able to run the wires under the damper bar and still have very free pod movement. That's one thing that always bugged me about my Carpet Knife was that to run the wires on the side of the car they always seemed to bind on something. On my CK I ran the wires up the center shock and over to the motor and that seemed to work best for me. But with my Mx2 I have a lot more room and choices for the wiring.
Well I got to run my car today and I was very impressed! Only got 2 runs on it before it started to rain
First run went very well with a slight oversteer some of which I compensated for by dialing down the dual rate. I'm sure I can fine tune it even better without making major changes to the car. Second run didn't go so well...Unfortunately I forgot to do my idiot check and did not notice a few things amiss with the car. One of my trailing links had lost a screw, the other was very loose, and the tires needed cleaning. In the end I had a very loose car with glazed over tires. Serves me right for not doing my idiot check...but in my defense I am the race director and was quite busy organizing the event. I ran purple fronts and pink rears with the stock front springs, stock center spring, and white roll springs in the outer most holes. I really like the multiple mounting points for the roll springs. It's been my observation that link cars seem to me to have a lot more roll in them then t-bar cars. Running it this way the edges of the chassis did not touch down in the slightest. My CRC was having an issue with that. Next race I think I'll try moving the roll springs one hole in to increase rear grip just a tad and go to 1 degree toe in at the front instead of 0 toe. Still...I was very impressed with how well the car handled straight out of the box with pretty much a stock setup.
Now I need to figure out how to go to a connector setup. I prefer hardwiring myself but I'm so busy during the race I just don't have time to hardwire if my iron goes finicky. Problem is I'm using a Novak discharge tray and I am having a hard time getting packs to fit nicely with wires soldered to the cells instead of battery bars.
