Hey Woody:

What weight oil are you running right now on your shocks?

Also, does anyone know a rating for the kit shock springs and the kit shock oil?

Dacookiemonsta: Do you happen to know what the oil selection they are using on the B4 shocks when they run them on the SB? I am thinking of going to the pistons you suggested ( I got #2s all around ) and 40W all around.

They just run at Tiverton, which is a sandy dirt track, and I think they were on 30wt all round, let me just copy and paster the guys setup from the weekend.

This is the set up I ran at Tiverton, the track was dusty with many ripples and bumps. Please note that I ran the new slipper clutch unit and the graphite top deck on the Sb

B4 body with b4 kit shock shaft
Oil 30
Piston Associated no#2
Spring Associated Blue
Shock tower pick up mid
Wishbone pick up mid
Camber link shock tower pick up outter ,short link
Kick up 12deg

Rear

Spring silver Associated

wishbone pick up inside
Camber link hun pick up inside
Camber link shock tower pick up 2nd hole in on bottom
wheel base long
aunti squat 2deg

27/70 ON A BRM 12X1



With both set ups the car was easy to drive, the back end felt very stable and was easy to push, if you feel that you want more turn in move the frontshock pick up on wishbone in one hole.

Thanks for the info. On the Tracks in the US so far the jumps aren't that forgiving for that light an oil and piston combo. The spring combo though sounds about right however, I was leaning towards going that route for the springs. Blues in the rear is just too stiff.

So you guys are able to get the slipper already? Anyone know if the slipper from the truck fits?

The slipper is a developement item, and it has been tested and some modifications requested, to basicaly try to make it more USER friendly for adjusting, other than that, I hear it worked very well, barely noticeable, which is what you want.

Thanks for the info. I know woody is supposed to be trying out the truck slipper when he gets it from MRC. will be interesting to see if that works.

I got more info from someone who is racing his SB Sport, he is having some pack issues i believe but the blue springs up front, silver in the rear seems to be a general setting for this vehicle. I recommended for him to try the piston suggestions I got here as he is running #2s up front and #1s in the rear.

Yes, I am running blues on the front, and silver rears, but at the moment, I am running TC pistons, as thats ALL I could get that felt right, but then in the Griffin Pro (Academy 2wd) the pistons in that feel better. I have got the Teflon pistons now, and will be drilling them out in 0.2mm steps, so it would be similar to the AE pistons.

As for the truck slipper clutch, I don't think it would work, as it uses a similar gearbox (if not the same) as the Griffin Pro, and that in no way will fit in the SB.

Have a little patience, as soon as the developement parts are agreed to be what is wanted, I am sure Academy will be quick to get them out for us....

And you can ALL que behind me, lol.

I am actually not in a rush on parts other than what I break

I think that some guys who are used to a slipper are trying to get used to not having one. If they can get it out say by the end of next month that would work for me.

I find that on the grass tracks we have over hear, the car becomes very darty under power, as there is plenty of grip, and the car CAN realy accelerate, the slipper would just take that initial bite from the car as it comes out of the corner.

all sb sport owners:

I noticed that when using the 70 tooth spur, and a 17 pinion I couldnt get the gear mesh as close as it needed to be. When I put on an 18 pinion, I didn't have a problem. If you are running a 16, or 17 what did you do to get that to work?
Did you run 18-19 pinions / and 60 something tooth spurs?
Also yesterday I tested the drive train and I'm impressed with it. Did you also notice the (rear) dogbones and cups that the dogbones slide into make a clicking sound when the rear of the car is depressed down or the rear arms suspension arms are moved upwards? I know swapping those out with the sb-016 would eliminate that noise.

If you read earlier posts, you will read how to install the dogbones without ANY sliding/rattling/noise, mine have done two meetings and a practice day with no sign of wear.

Cain, Just got back from Vacation. Hope all is well with you guys. When I got home the slipper was waiting on my doorstep. Installed it last night. If done right, you don't loose the support of the thrid bearing in the motor mount housing. Haven't tested it yet. Just changed the shock oil from 30w all around to 35 front, and 40 in the rear. Will let you know how this goes ASAP.

I need to read. Amazing how a couple of days gone and now this post is up to 10 pages... LOL

Shawn

That is the old design slipper clutch mind, not the new one, just for you to know.

What is the primary differences between the old clutch and the new one?
