I'm having some problems jumping my 22 2.0. I have Frank Roots RM setup, running on a medium bite dirt track that is shared with 1/8 scale buggies. The only changes I've made is 0 degree caster blocks. The 1/8 scales buggies are beating the jump faces up pretty bad and because of it, my 22 is jumping very erratic. Twisting to the left and right every time. I noticed the other buggies are more consistent then mine. Any suggestions??

Hard to tune for beat up jumps; I'd suggest adjusting your line to hit the best part of the jumps faces. Maybe raise ride height if everything is blown out...

I (and others) are having the same problem at our track as well. I'm considering upping the shock oil 2.5-5wt all around to see if it will help it to stay on top of the ruts a little better.

Try going back to 4 hole pistons, 55's front and rear. They won't pack up as much and might be better on the bumpier surface.

I was thinking of going down a little with shock oil to soften the damping. Is your track about 30 minutes south of you??

I've seen a lot of setups recently with 55 pistons instead of the 1.6. What differense is there in handeling between those two?

Congrats to JP for winning the MS Benefit Race at Delaware Ohio RC Raceway. But why not run MM. Rctech says MM is best everywhere

I have a question about the new bell crank steering. Since it comes with updated spindles will 1. Those spindles be available seperate, and 2. Will the rear hubs be made available seperste from the current 2.0 spindles. I would hate to have to purchase the outdated front spindles to replace a broken rear hub.

Thanks

The 55 piston feel very close to 1.6 to me but the car doesn't get upset as easy in the bumps. The only thing I didn't like as well about the 55 is they don't land as well off bigger jumps or if you over jump and flat land the buggy

You will be able to get the bell crank spindles separate but will have to let Frank or someone else comment about the rear hubs if they will be changed.
