More Washers underneath the front ballstuds will help keep the front end planted. Less washers or no washers will make the steering more responsive and touchy.

Larger piston holes will increase the dampening of the shock and vice versa. Having larger shock piston holes would be most suited to a moderately rough track (small bumps, dips etc) and vice versa for smaller shock piston holes.

As Aaron Waldron says, "think things as either softer or stiffer"

search for the compilation by elvo in the Charlie Perez thread, its the best tuning guide your ever going to find.

Less washers under the front vertical ballstud gives more turn-in more gives more turn out. A longer front link gives more turn-out, a shorter front line gives more turn in. A shorter rear link gives more sidebite, a longer rear link gives less sidebite and more forward bite. More washers under the rear vertical ballstud is more traction exiting the turn, less is more traction entering.

Cooper! Shouldn't you be studying!?? :-)

Besides, that's not what he meant. It's on www.rc10b4.com in Charlie's thread, page .... 456687441 or something :-)

Thanks for the link guys. I tried to search my self but there was just too much info to go through and I gave up. Cooper I have had that RC tuning guide for a long time. You are right there is some great info in that guide but sometimes it gets a little overwhelming.

Thanks again
Scott
