Gene- Cush is running the Tresrey CF chassis (I believe it was a joint project with 8Racing) with great success. He shaved a half second off his laps at Leisure Hours and feels that the car is more planted through the corners. Its pricey but a good investment for the buggy. Plus it looks dialed!

When we raced at Streamwood last month, his car appeared to handle extremely well. The most important thing is that carbon fiber makes any car DIALED!

Thanks! That would make sense. I just saw they have two different motor plates and the one that came on the "R" version was considered an option for the 2010 Spec car--must be the whole 25mm thing.

Anybody know if the stock dark blue/light blue springs that come on the BB are an decent place to start? All the setups on TD for the V3 are in Europe on cork or carpet surfaces. WTH?? Thanks!

Depends what you were using before with the small bores (or is it regular bores..?). The rates are nearly identical between the stock and big bore springs, and your desired spring rate should not be too far off of what you were running before. What I'm anxious to see is if we are able to gain considerable pack without increasing the low speed damping. Cush's car now handles very well but has a tendency to chassis slap if he overshoots a downside. Reducing this will help him out considerably.

Danger,
That is what Justin and I are using on the BB. Look at his setup sheet on the website for piston/shock oil info.

23 LAPS SON!

Guys, I don't play with bumpsteer or ackerman much. So what would give the smoothest steering? Ackerman front/middle or rear hole? Also bump in or bump out? Thanks........

I run one step softer F/R. I believe Dark Green Front, and Lt. Green Rear just like the standard size shocks.

I run mine in the middle on my DEX410/DESC410 and found for my setup that gives me the best steering response versus the other 2 positions. It gives me good turn in but I find in the middle of the turn the car turns on a dime as our track is pretty small and tight so it works well.

Here is a vid of our track. My car is dead last, but two laps in I get to second (where I finish) and you can see my Durango seems to be the best handling Also turned the fastest lap of the night in 4WD as well.
