Could someone running Xpert servos give the proper servo shim measurement? Not listed in the manual...

Default HELP

Hey I drive on somewhat loamy dirt. We spray so it gets a little tacky at times. But my 5.0 sr wants to push real bad in the corners. I know it could be my driving but it seems like my setup is a tad off. Any info is appreciated!

Try lowering your front roll centre (1mm washer under inner ball stud) or raising your rear roll centre.

Looking for a setup for a smallish indoor office depot carpet carpet track. My car pushes entering into the corner and through sweeper turns it wants to "float" towards the outer pipe ( like I don't have enough side grip). I tried Frank Roots setup, and it did not work at all on my home track.

What tires, what carpet? What didn't work about the setup? Also, which setup? I have two posted.

happens with jconcepts, proline, Schumacher. Carpet is Office Depot grey has about 11 months on it so it’s well worn in and super high bite. Setup I tried is from the ricochet rc race. I have the exact same setup on it now. Nobody else here runs TLR so I’m on my own as far trying to get it dialed in. Ended up running my XB2C, but want to get the TLR competitive.

Ok, so what is your go to tire? Not just the brand, but the compound and tread patterns for front and rear?

I've found tires to have a lot to do with the feel of a car on carpet.

And what are you looking for the car to do better? The more specific info I get, the more specific info I can give back.

it needs to not push, better off power and on power steering, better side bite. My go to tire right now are the jconcepts swagger fronts, and Nessieís rears when I can get them. My back up tire is a Schumacher cut stagger front, and cactus rear (yellow compound). There was a track change over the weekend that has more of a flow to it and is higher speed so I intend on trying a thinner front sway bar and thicker rear. Go back to stock pistons with 450/350 cst xray shock oil, and drop the diff oil to 5k from 7k to try and keep the rear from overdriving the front end causing the push Iím having. I will also try 1mm on the inner front ballstud on the camber block, change roll centres, and add more drag break on the muchmore speed control Iím running in it (was suggested by a yokomo driver). This is a mod car with a 6.5 running 78/21 for gearing.

Here are a few things to try.

1. Increase front camber to 2 deg, even try upto 2.5 deg.
2. Got to #1 front camber link inside.
3. Increase the front wing angle. There are two dimples, just drill 2 or 2.1mm holes there and install M2.5 BH screws (like the shock bleed screws) to lift the rear of the front wing.
4. Change front shock position to 2-Middle
5. Move the hubs back 1mm.
6. Remove any weight under the battery and install a 2nd weight plate under the electronics.

ok. Should I mess with trail any? Or leave it at 4mm. And what exactly does that setting do?

More trail will smooth out off-center steering, but give more mid-corner, and vice-versa. I've tried less, and preferred 4mm myself.
