I don't see how raising or lowering the ride height would ever make it jump weird. Done it hundreds of times. It can be a huge difference in handling.

Put the softer spring(if u find one) on and it will jump weird and drive weird.

changing ride height on one end of the car could mess up the jumping capability

my guess would be 8 or 9 pm... biggest issue is noise w/ the generators and neighbors... come and introduce yourself!

Is there going to be any difference between running 4* toe in with all of it from the antisquat block or 3* there and 1* from rear hubs? Or is 4* the same handling no matter how you get it?

there is a difference, but to be 100% honest.... i consider myself to be a pretty decent driver, and have ran both. didn't notice any difference from one to the other. we actually did some testing before we started pounding them out and no one else did either

charge off your car? or just bring an extension cord... offer someone $5 for the day and just bum power off someone. everyone out there is pretty cool especially about that. also if you pit close enough to the scoring tower and there isn't already 100 guys getting power off it you can plug into the shack.... it's limited tho.

either way come on out and have a good time

Officially it's 8:00. But since camping is allowed, not sure how definite that is, as long as we don't make a racket. Like Chedda said, don't let power stop ya from airing it out at the Runn!!!

by putting the extra toe at the squat block it acts like moving your hub forward on the arm. If it were at the hub it would just add toe to help keep the rear behind the front.

You can add drag brake in the speedo to help that. But it only helps when your throttle is at neutral. Moving your rear shock outside one hole on the tower should return the steering in the middle of the corner.

Well i should be there at about 6 tonight. That way i can get in a little practice.

Would a fantom 10.5 be enough to run mod in a b4? Or is that a little on the slow side?

Not sure what kind of driver you are but most are faster with a slower motor. The runn is pretty loamy from what I hear. I have a 6.5 in the buggy now and gona try that. If its too much then my only other opion is a 13.5. Guess gear it up and see what happens?

should be fine, thats all i will have in both my xxx-cr and t4

ran a 6.5 in the t4 last weekend and there was absolutely no need for it... gear up the 13.5 Dennis and you will be fine
