What is the release date on the short chassis, i have 2 on B/O and wondering if they will be here before the spektrum?

also, what is the spring rate on the kyosho gold front springs so i read that it is closer to avid red, which is 3.33....that is like going to a losi silver....wouldnt that stiff a spring make the car push....i am used to running Red LF springs...

I hope they'll be in next week Matt. Just up to the US Customs Office...

I don't know the Kyosho rates other than what you can find on google. I've been running the TLR Orange RM, and Silver MM most of the time. We've been running a lot stiffer in the front, maybe a little less steering, but gained a lot more consistency and have been liking that!

I am running AE greys (3.45) on the front of the 2.0 Rm with Bell cranks. After going to the bell cranks, I gained a crap ton of steering. I really liked going to a front heavier spring. We run on a pretty high bite surface, where you come in hot to a 90 deg turn. With the RM, the outside front wheel will compress to, much to quick and traction roll the car. This was less of an issue with the slider, but since turn is greatly increased, I am now transferring weight much quicker than before. But I like it. I actually feel like I can tune the car now. Most of my cars are currently using a pretty heavy front spring as SRS.

Default TLR334018 - Brass MM Hinge Pin Brace

Hey Guys,

We just announced the TLR334018 Brass MM Hinge Pin Brace today. They are on their way and should ship by the middle of November. These add 35g to the rear of your 22 2.0 (or 22SCT 2.0) in MM configuration, but still give you the option to tune any anti-squat setting in either HRC or LRC.

Check out the further details here -



Thanks and Race on!
Frank

Default 22 2.0 wing angle???

I've had my 2.0 for 10 months. I never was happy with the extreme angle of about 45 that the wing is mounted on the kit rear motor mount. I've checked the manual. To make sure I assembled it correctly but cannot find any indication that I got it wrong. Now I started watching YouTube vids to see what others look like. It seems that mine is the oddball. Look closely at the pictures below. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks

This is the problem I'm having

I tried the achieve a horizontal link at full lock left and right. Finally did it and what a difference it made!

The lateral movement of the rack/cranks is what's important here. The arc the horn moves through produces a natural steering curve (positive expo). I can't see how anything other than a vertical horn can produce the same curve left and right.

I hear people saying to aim for 90 degree horn to link to offset the effect of the horn being higher than the rack/crank but this height difference is irrelevant.
