Is the truck not doing something you would like? I can't read much into your statment other then you want a whole new setup? 32 second laps sounds like a pretty big track is all I was able read into that.

Black grease on the thrust and just a small film of clear on the main balls. Black grease behind diff rings. I will try tuning the slipper a little better for a better balance.

I'm not going to say not to do it because I've never tried it, but I've never heard of black grease being used behind the diff rings. I've always seen instructions to build with silicon behind the diff rings. You may want to rebuild your diff.

edit:gradturk, you beat me to it...8)

Why black grease behind the rings? If it was to work its way onto the main diff balls the diff would not feel good at all! I would suggest clear behind the rings as maybe it is the black grease that is helping the diff rings slip against the outdrives.

I haven't used your complete setup yet, still waiting on some parts, but I believe your setup was for a regular indoor manicured track. I was looking for possible changes that someone has made to accommodate the larger size of the jumps and track.

I would start with Frank Roots Short Course Showdown from Mikes hobby shop, 2012. The track was low to medium bite, blown out and inconsistant. It is a very forgiving set up that hooks up great on low bite conditions.

Black grease is a bad idea behind the main ring. Silicone is the only thing to use for the main gears as there has to be a level of friction required for those to drive. If you have a grease that reduces friction too much the drive rings will slip and you can't get the diff to set. ONLY clear grease around the main balls and rings. The thrust bearing you can use black grease or other similar hi pressure grease.

Ryan and I find setups we develop at OCRC to translate well to other track conditions with the use of appropriate tires. Not saying it is going to be perfect for you and your track but give it a full try. The Root Mikes hobby setups is popular with guys that are running low traction as well so that might work well for you as well.

Once again you guys have been a lot of help. I'm given your set up a try, thanks.

If you give me details of handling issues for your track and can help you tweak the setup for you as well so let me know.

Casper I been having good luck with the Casper/Dunford setup in 17.5 blinky with a shorty (4 foams behind it) 2.5 rear toe block, no added brass weights. I just need to fix one thing the inside rear tire wants to spin to much on corner exit, I tightened the diff to the point where I'm nervous about snapping the diff bolt. Any ideas on how to keep that inside rear tire from unloading? (I think unloading is the correct term for this???)
Thanks

Humm. I would do two things. I would move the battery back two pads just to see how more weight back effects this. Then I would pop off the swaybar to see if that helps as well.

Set it buy eye. Start with the links the same length and always make equal adjustments.
