Hi guys,

Loving the build on mine so far, one query, is it ok/usual to have a lot of float in the front spindle king pins... Eg they move up and down vertically a fair bit in the hub?

Mine moves quite a bit there doesn't seem to affect the driving. But I'm going to try and pull some slop out.

Can you post a full setup sheet? What kind of surface are you racing on?

Here is a quick blog post on my car. I have let a couple people drive it and they are sold. So far extremely impressed. I have not been serious about racing in a long time, and I think this car just gave me the itch I needed to get back into this game.

Great day of practice. Car is hooked up at LSR. Car works everywhere I race. Will not have an issue going from track to track. Will get more testing again tomorrow.

I used Axle shims and put 2 on the top outside of the spindle and that took care of it

Schelle B5 spacers work great to fix slop.

My car is good up here. Could use a bit more forward bite but I dont want to give up any on power steering to get it. Steering feels so direct and precise, like running a 1/12th car.

Went to a Losi yellow rear spring as the car felt like it was dumping over on power at corner exit, and went to 0 zero ballstud washers in front to calm the front just a hair on entry.

Well looks like not enough interest for MIP to make aluminum pucks for our cars. Back to the machinist I shall go. I have 4 sets of the 10 I need to send to him to make the run of lightening the outdrives.

Another great day of practice. Motor and gearing is perfect. My testing is with Tekin motors only. They run differently than other motors. The car acts like it wants a slightly stiffer spring front and rear. Currently on Kyosho whites all around. Once I'm confident in the setup I will post it.
