I run a JR9100T..it does do the job....I would think that anyone's upper end servos would do the job..KO has some really good servos..

Problem is on my track we have two straights both with a high speed corner at the end they are short but fast sections my issue is that when I let of the throttle to setup for the corner the rear of the truck washes out/over steers I have tried all I can to keep this from happening and I am at a loss please give me some ideas


Front setup

0 Toe
-1 camber lower hole for link
outer shock upper
outer shock lower
Gold or Purple spring
#5 piston 37.5 oil Emulsion
Full droop plus end unscrewed 2 turns
7K diff

Center
7K diff

Rear setup

-3 Toe
#1 inserts in giving minimum anti squat
-1 camber outer hole and lower hole for link
inner hole for upper shock
center hole for lower shock
silver rear spring
#3 piston 27.5 oil emulsion
Full droop
4K diff oil



I would say you are a lil heavy on diff fluids particularly the center and rear. which both would free you up. also take the two turns of droop out as that might be taking the weight off the inside rear tires, which could make you lose rear grip. tho I would adjust those little bits at a time. should help you out, if your truck is handling the bumps really good for your track conditions then I wouldn't change yourshock oil/spring setup. maybe if you had to go farther yet maybe use the upper camber link on your front end, but may cost you a little in the sharp turns. also make sure you are getting as much rear tread to the track as you can, -1 degree camber might not be enough maybe try -2 and actually I would check that first, by the way the more antisquat you have the more the truck will want to rotate. hope this helps

just an opinion on how I would tune it. I do very well with my scte but I am still learning also.

I run 27wt all the way around but im not running the emulsion setup so from what I read they need a little thicker fluid I would stick with 30, 32.5wt if you got it. Now that i got to thinking I'm not sure if the black and Orange spring's would work well with emulsion shock's, I guess it all depends on the weight of the truck and style track you race.

Is there any sort of drag brake being ran or any binding going on?

Also what's your ride height at?

Just start with small changes at a time and see what happens.

What type of tire's are you running and what type of track?

truck was awesome this weekend.. ran the pro4 for the first time this weekend..and wow.. anyway.. thanks to the guys for the setup tips..

did i read correctly, that there are new drive shafts coming, where the pin that goes through, is captured with a set screw? i did have that issue this weekend where the center front drive shaft came out.. luckily i caught it before a heat race.. or i woulda lost the pin and stuff..

thanks for your info..

i was able to buy a replacement set of center CV couplers yesterday at the track and they had the updated design (the pin has a flat spot and a set screw goes in from the side).

Thats what I have also and I'm liking it too. I had to run a cap on mine with my Futaba system. It is quick and plenty powerful.

Chris - I think you're referring to the Savox 1258TG. But he said in the $100-200 price range. So, I'll just sell him mine for $100. =)

That Savox and the Spektrum 6040 work really well in the truck.
