Cain: I know that Dan is running 4 cells on the battery side and 2 on the motor side, All the option goodies, AE Green springs all round I believe, I know he ran this weekend @ an indoor track, I'm sure that he has a dialed setup that he'll be posting later on today.

Talk to you soon!!

Dave:

Thanks for the info. After running 2wd e buggy this weekend I sure miss 4wd buggy especially on a a 1/8 scale pounded track.

I'll be messaging you in a bit about touring this winter .

Yea..this is where I will be starting next time I run my car.

Front: 3 pistions, 22.5 wt., AE green springs, Shocks middle on the tower, inside on arm, short upper camber link position. Run the forward ackerman hole on the steering block, no internal limiters. 7* castor blocks.
Rear: 3 pistons, 27.5 wt., AE silver springs, Shocks 2nd in on tower, inside on arm, middle row inside link on the tower, inside on the block. 2*toe blocks 2* antisquat. I'm running a touch of toe out up front. The rear blocks are shaved down about .060 where the ballstud mounts.
Left side: servo, 4 cells, receiver Right side: Speedo, 2 cells, motor. Running the 80t spur gear and gear the motor about 7 teeth over for a medium track.

hope this helps for now. It is sure to get better

Just to elaborate on DAN's setup, he is running the 1mm 3 hole pistons not the 1.5mm hole ones. He is not using another manufacturers shocks either, he has the optional aluminum ACADEMY shocks that are listed in the "option parts" section of the manual.

Talk to you soon!

Dave,

Do you know when MRC / Academy will be releasing there own line of shock springs?

Also, what is the weight of the oil that is coming stock with the kits? I got 4 bottles sitting here but never used them as I don't really know what they are.

I think it is 500. So that would make it around like AE 40 or so.

Cain: ACADEMY has 3 different colors of shock springs for the offroad cars.

White Ft: 2.77lb Part#V 019
White Rr: 1.98 lb Part#V 020

Black Ft: 4.0lb Part#RG 022
Black Rr: 3.3lb Part#RG 023

Green Ft: 4.07lb Part#V 021
Green Rr: 2.60lb Part#V 022

Hope this helps, the green and black front springs are similar in lbs but the black spring has more coils which makes it a more progressive spring. If you want the spring rates for the Touring car I have that info as well, feel free to PM me.

Dave,

Thanks for the info. Hopefully more inbetween ranges will be coming out soon though AE's do work, I know guys like to keep it all factory.

I didn't know there were more options for touring car springs, if I do touring again this winter, I'll ask you for the info. Thanks!

I think it would be nice to have new springs. It wouldn't hurt to have threaded bodies as well
