I just checked and my new weighted front bulkhead for the 201 I see if coming off backorder from Great Planes so when our next show order comes in Wed I will have my last part I'm waiting for. Now just need to find a pack of L parts tree and I have most of the spares I would need.

I see you have the 25 degree caster blocks on. What did they do for you over the 30 degree ones on this setup? Since I didn't run my car yet I still have the stock 30 degree on but I have some 25 degree ones I can switch to.

I will look closely at the rest of your setup and print it out as soon as I get to the hobby shop where the printer is working.............unlike my work printer.
25 were great for entry and tight corners... the track i run on there is not alot of high speed corners so 25 were the ticket.. the car just flat out corners now!!!! And has much better balance with full pack for my preference

I was just curious as i have never drove a regular chassis car myself just wanted some feedback if you had indeed compared the two back to back.

I have a +6 Trackstar chassis on my car and i have a newly built 201 with a stock chassis on it just not sure what im doing with that car yet.

Here is mine that I raced for the first time at my local indoor clay track. I'm hooked on 2WD buggies.

I like it turns and jumps great no complaints here.

I run a shorty pack full forward on high bite indoor and move it back 5mm on non high bite.

I dont have any bad things to say havent broken one part yet.

Changed out the front arms to the stiffer reinforced ones and its bueno.

Not a problem. The actually setup I was starting with is for a +8 setup but is still very close to your stock chassis setup except it was a high bite track. Our track is from medium to very high but depends on how its watered and the humidity and temps outside even though we race indoors. If its warm this weekend which I see it will be the track will be very high bite.
