I'm running an AC on black CRC. I like the brass electronic weight and front pivot. Running Proline Z3 Prism front and rear. What tires will your track allow you to run? What are other running. I based my setup off of a local racer and Frank Root's.

Just picked up an ELITE kit to run on carpet, and want to run the following setup:

http://www.tlracing.com/ProdInfo/Fil...TU_09_2019.pdf

However, my LHS doesnít stock the pistons and they are on backorder online until Feb.

What shock oil or other changes should I use to compensate for using the kit pistons?

Also, Iím not going to buy the 68mm dog bones at this time, should I make another adjustment to compensate for using the 67mm bones?

CVD pin position will need to be in 1 or 2.

Just run the standard AC kit set up for springs and oil. Start with that set up for things like ride height and camber as well

Are there optional hexís to give you the offset to run B6 wheels?

When you move the front 2 axle shims on the Elite to the outside B6 wheels then bolt on. Is this intentional? Or meant just as a tuning option to widen the front end?

Itís meant as a tuning option when using the 22 wheels to fine tune track width - I suspect this may change a bit soon. I read somewhere that there was a new IFMAR rule to standardize/limit the offset allowed for wheels in the 2WD class at the Worlds, but they elected not to enforce it last minute. It is speculated that maybe this is a precursor to having ready-made handout wheels/tires for future events?

B6 wheels make the 22 too wide to be legal. In order to make B6 wheels work on the front of the 22 you would have to redesign the front suspension and steering geometry.

it controls axle plunge, effecting how much bind is introduced into the system with suspension travel

Which direction is it steering? In under compression or out? If it toes out during compression remove outer ballstud shims on the steering link. If it toes in during compression add more shims to the outer steering ballstud.

B6 wheels don't fit regardless. It makes the car extremely too wide and throws all of the suspension geometry out of wack.

The lower the number, the more bone lock up.

I don't really change setups for stock vs. mod, so yes, it should be solid for 21.5.

Lower the steering spindle ball stud to reduce bump out, raise it to reduce bump in.
