Hahahaha

It's amazing how much difference a piece of lexan makes. The guys at the shop tried a lot of different things, and this was the best.

Looking good is second priority to winning

I'm mainly an on road guy where we use bodies as much as anything to tune. But I've never really paid much attention to it in off road since normally there isn't much of a "choice." You run the body for that car/truck. I'll do some back to back of my own to see what I can feel.

If you need a little more on-power steering, cut out the holes on the backside of the front shock tower bumps. It will also make the truck jump better.

I was wondering what those were for?

Might have to give it a try today at the track.

Thanks

It is only legal if there are scored marks to indicate the lines to be cut. The holes the Associated team drivers have been making in their bodies are not ROAR legal.

Default Setup

That is good to know.

Finished forth in the A main in Sundays race.
Truck had way too much steering for me,was running the kit
set up except for inside on the rear hubs.It had much more
steering than the first time I ran it?The problem may have
been too much drag brake from my gt7,will adjust some on
that at Friday nite test and tune.

Do you have anything suggestions on how to get rid of the over
steer-track in hard pack and slick and rough in places,they just
add about 300 ft too track so the surface is not real consistant.

At this time I am setting second in points in stock truck with a
very slight advantage over the third place driver,he finished in
third .

thanks

What front tires are you using?

Try adding a washer under the front inner ballstud, or stand the front tires up (no camber).

Big Sky country? I have family up there, in Butte. All there is up there is sky!

Drag brake, more negative camber in the front, going out on the front bulkhead or removing washers.

You guys run step pins, right? Ever tried IFMAR pins?

Big Sky Country also has air you can breath.
Unless you are in Butte when the smelter is in operation.

I have two washes under the ball stud.zero camber.

Randy - If the track is loamy, I'd reach for those first. You wouldn't believe how dialed they are in electric

SrRc - Try moving the ballstud in on the front bulkhead.

I love driving in Montana..you can go 50 miles and see five cars going the opposite way. I can see five cars on my way out of the driveway.
