If you think that this was abusive then you are a lost cause. Notice the smiling faces nodding...hardly a bagging. I even suggested the tyre he should be using on his home track. I haven't put one abusive post on any thread yet..BTW if you want to use the word "thought", at least spell it right.

No not really, it's just that you have done it on two posts already. You are getting boring because unlike Timmy2Quick you are not funny.

Ybakoff - if you are using kit set up this usually includes M3 front tyres....they can be too grippy at Castle Hill....makes to the buggy throw the rear out....try using R3 compound....they are more consistent

Gee Boys.

If I had of known that by asking a question about handling was going to start a fight I would of just asked my Nana. Even know she doesn't know what she's talking about would of saved everyone getting upset.

Must of been the 8081's. Have to get myself some of those.

Plus I think that I got lucky. Daddy was a mobile chicane, poor old Nath had an extra few corners every lap.

Yeah a few to many roadies.

I swear Glenn has a few every Sunday before he races. Otherwise he's just unbalanced. He rocks side to side on the stand whenever he gets into a battle. Maybe he needs a couple of spare legs. Like Balkey.

You should stand between him & Brian...you get sea sick from the motion and the moving radios block your view of your car

Practice,practice,practice, Thats the name of the game. I personally like Billy Eastons set up on www.rc10.com. I use this on a smooth, clay, hard packed track with mini-pins. I slide the battery to adjust if I want more front/rear bite.

I run a b4..

mine did the same thing...

I thought I had the ride height adjusted properly.. I drive with an associated sponsored pro occasionally.. he said to adjust the height.. just press down on the body.. about 1/2" and let go and check..

basically my ride height was too low front and back.. as was causing weird stuff to happen I don't even know for sure why.. I thought lower would be more hooked up.. but, it let go of the rear on every turn and wouldn't steer worth a darn...

front arms level

rear bones above level

It could be something else also... like limiter problems in shocks

I tell ya... setups range a lot on this car.. everyone seems to have something different.. but, one thing.. I highly suggest the blue o-rings MIP make for the shocks.. unobtanium shafts, and HPI shock bladders.. part #: HPI6814
