Make sure you have vents cut out in your body. It helps.

I am continuing to get my car dialed in more and more, and am almost there.. 2 issues still (kind of) remain..

1) coming out of a tight turn and when I apply throttle, it still does a bit of fishtailing..

someone recommended I change my 7k front/7k rear to 3K or 5K in the rear to increase traction, and that running equal diffs was very "aggressive" and for more experienced drivers.. any input?


2) when coming off a jump and into a turn when I slow down to take the turn, it sometimes rolls over... One of the guys at the track said my back end seemd to rotate back and forth too much, and said the -2 camber I had didnt seem to work b/c when he twisted the chassis/suspension back and forth (sumulating a turn) the outer edge of the rear tire was making the most contact instead of the middle of the tire...

is this a camber positioning issue?
(I dont think this matters, but I did have to move the camber links on both the chassis and the hubs to the rear b/c I went with the rear shock mounting system... But the holes used are still the same. (middle hub, and inner middle chassis hole)

I am also running inner most shock mount, and middle lower hole.

One final question I have is regarding using the brake. I almost never use it, as I just coast when I need to slow down to make a tight turn. Some other guys seem to be able to drive much more aggressively as far as stopping and going.. do I need to be using the break more actively?

The key is making your wheelbase longer to make the car stable out of corners!!! You goons need a dremel...

Hmm not sure, I would stick with a hardcase though, especially since there are lots of gaps near the battery area that would allow rocks and sticks to get in there. It looks like a cool idea, just wish they would make a hardcase version.

Work great and fit nice-n-snug. I used to need it for making 8 minutes when I was running a 4.5 550 in my DESC410. Are you running a 2.5 540 or what the heck do you need this for in a DEX410?

I would think that MaxAmps soft pack won't be a problem. the side pods and rear brace do a good enough job of wrapping around the packs, so that would protect it from large impacts.

you could always just bend some thin lexan into a 'U' around the bottom of the pack if you were extra worried about dirt/debris

I have seen a pin come out of a center drive line and chew through a hard pack. A soft pack would be very vulnerable in that rare instance.

I just raced there last weekend. Fastest lap times on the track. Just popped off a ball cup almost every round. BuT I was out front at the time. Give me some time I will post my setup.

Try this for starters. This is pretty much my standard starting setup too.
