Barnyard up in Canada? Hook up with Darrin Quinn he has dialed setups for that track. I'll ask him to help you out.

thx in advance for any advice
Its usually easier to fill out a setup sheet and post it, good way to keep track of your setup for different tracks, and makes it easier to get help on what may need to ve changed

It was recommended a while back to use a gear diff with black grease. Is this still the way to go. I will be running on low bite outdoor. Thanks

Would the 4wd rear arm mod be a good idea for low bite outdoor? Thanks

Can anyone tell me what's the spring rate for the stock Team C big bore shocks?

I just upgraded on my Evo and feel that the spring is abit too stiff at where I'm driving. A friend of mine told me that the stock spring is medium and I should buy a soft spring rate. How true is this?

Are big bore springs universal? What other brands of springs are compatible with it?

You can use TLR springs.

front - 3.4
rear - 2.1

what kind of surface are you running on? I run on a medium traction clay with mine and currently have Losi reds up front and whites in the rear.

I guess mine would be the same, medium traction clay. Will try your setup once I get my hands on the Losi springs.

Thanks alot!!

Oh Mark, since we are on the same track condition, care to share your setup? Are you running gear diffs? If so, what oil visc? How abt your shock oil visc as well?

I am running low-med traction clay (not really sure if one man's medium is another man's low) and I'm currently trying the gear dif with 1000 wt, which feels about right.

I feel the ball diff turns a tiny bit more, but when I brake with the gear-diff I can very predictably hook the rear around. Both are very good. I may switch back to the ball diff just to compare with my most recent setup.

I am running MJBTaco's setup, which is essentially:

Front shocks:
Team C light spring
AE 30 wt oil, AE 1.6x2 pistons
Inside hole tower, outside hole arm

Rear shocks:
Team C medium (kit) spring
AE 27.5 wt oil, AE 1.6x2 pistons
Middle hole tower, outside hole arm

Rear hub outer most hole camber link.
Rear tower upper inside camber link.

Someone should have a .pdf of this somewhere, but you can try that. MJBTaco also runs aluminum shock base rear and weighted brass front arm mount.
