[QUOTE=frankf;13753180][\

Can't you just top the battery up on the charger between heats it really doesn't take long, as far as adding a little weight where usually only talking 30g skidplate maybe another 24g with the sides but you just added another 200g with a 2nd lipo that would have to affect the handling possibly needing stiffer springs which produces less traction cancelling out any benefit gained from the added weight

Not really worries about the weight too much. I set up my cars with the fredswain method so I know it is ballanced. My reasoning behind this little trial is to hopefully have 3 car I can run all 3 rounds without charging batteries. It's a small club and it's a lot of back to back racing or marshling. With 3 cars it's pretty hard to get them all topped off possible but difficult. Also not worries about heat as it's coming of the track at 110 esc 130 motor without a fan.

Hey guys, SMC is selling the square packs for $39.95 ea. and they are awesome for indoor action. 5800 mah and 70c is plenty, and a steal for this price. I have bought 4 of them for my Desc410 and Dex410, and no issues racing indoor. They actually look like they were made for this vehicle.

Thank you very much! This is pretty similar to the setup I am using now minus a few key differences. Hopefully those will give it the speed Im looking for!

Can someone measure their preload at correct ride height? Seems like I always have to compress the springs (dark blue) SO MUCH to get even just 19mm ride height.

Your at 6.42 fdr novaks gearchart suggests 7 but are sometimes conservative so I think your about right maybe drop down a pinion or two if the motor getting hot but as posted above it can depend on the size of the track so try different fdr and see if laptimes improve or not

Double check if your suspension is binding somehow. First I would take the shocks off and make sure that the arms drop under their own weight and if you lift the arms and release that they would fall back down. Sometimes the hinge pins can be bent or have rust or dirt on them. If your arms drop easily without the shocks, then the next I would check the shocks to ensure free movement in the shaft. Remove the oil and make sure the shaft goes in and out smoothly.
You could have bent shafts, or damaged o-rings which have dirt in them which could cause it to hinder movement.

Dino's setup is really good. Just like the rest of the cars. Just took 1st place after finally getting used to the buggy. I did a couple things differently as I don't have the 19 or 21 blocks yet as I think the price for them is ridiculous. I used a little harder sway bar on the front, clay in the front as I use SS in the rear. Side bite is great. car pivots on a dime. It does push just a bit on power but I am tweaking that a bit.

I run the 17* blocks as well with Dino's set up. It's a very aggressive so I went to 5k front oil but it's steering on demand and fast. I might get a pair of 19's or 21's to try to get a bit more mid turn, we'll see

We only have one 180 the rest are flowing or after a jump and it will just flip around anyway. did the 5k slow it down a bit. I just don't feel like spending 40 on those parts when I could be getting more of other things.

Thanks for replying, it's a large track, high bite, with bug jumps. I ran it for about 5 mins and it came off at about 145*. I think I'm going to go down to an 81 tooth spur. What is the internal ratio of the car? I just picked it up used and don't know much about it.
