Hi Ari,

How much ride height are you running? Found the rear shocks on the front of car increase its minimum ride height quite a bit.

Cheers
Andrew

andrew,
we run the ride height so the driveshafts are level, see my set-up sheet i posted.... the only difference between mine and ari's was that i was running the new purple rear sway bar and my diff oils were slightly thicker

cheers
ben

Thanks Ben.

I tried 1.7mm holes in my shock pistons with 30wt oil and they lacked dampening. Is this a typo?

Talking best to date!

Wow!!
Car was the best its been to date today! No issues with the car all
day and i showed it no mercy and ran tank after tank after tank!

Once again i am just amazed with how good this car turns! Car was
very easy to drive. Took a few tanks to get the brakes 100% dialed
in. The car was a little loose on the rear but VERY controllable. I
don't remember spinning out once and we were on the slickest track in
U.S. History! Cool thing is they watered it a couple times and the
car was stupid fast. I had my little bs practice motor in, but
tomorrow we are hitting a different track and i plan on running my
real motor to really see whats up!

Couldn't ask for any more from the car at this point!
I will try to get some video of tomorrows practice session.

Setup i ran:

Front
5000
40wt
0 toe
-3 camber
Orange springs (rear)
Rear shocks
1.5 pistons

4000

Rear
3000
35wt
3 toe
-4 camber
purple springs
purple sway bar
option wing (up)
middle camber link
upper hole on hubs
1.5 pistons

not sure how much was the wing because i tried many different things.

The wing is a must have though because it is A LOT stronger than the stock one. Much harder plastic.

560200 Shock body
560190 Shock shaft

Strip down your front shocks, use the rear shafts and body and put it all back together. When using this change, run the middle hole on the tower and "always" eun the outside hole on the arm.

Trust me you will love these two changes.
