Nice ride E.J.

Some of you U.K. drivers may have spotted the custom setup board used by T.O.P driver Jimmy Maddison. I am now selling these, and have a thread here
Thanks for looking
Ali

- Xray purple Springs 30 LB
-Shock postion standard
-2mm on uppper link longest link,
-1mm below blocks
-NO front arm sweep 0 degree bblock
-3mm in front of arms and 3mm behind arms
-No sway bars
-5mm ride height 2mm droop
-Akerman block all the way back
REAR
-Tamiya shocks 3 hole 45 weight
-Dark blue xray springs 25 LB
-Shock position one lower then standard
-.5mm on upper link longest link,
-1.5mm below blocks
-3 degree rear toe.
-2.5mm in front of arm
-2mm in front of rear hub
-5mm ride height 2mm droop

All alloy bits used.
mazda 6 body
40 rear foams all around
D/R 70 %

This set up is very agressive but holds so much corner speed.

Hope I get a good result this weekend at the actually event

Enjoy
Damien

Happy to report I won the Australia Summer nationals on the weekend running basicly the above setup, the car was awesome on Foams

I went to 42rears on the front on the car,tire diameter I ran was 59mm
Also went to 35 weight oil on the front of the car.

excellent results from Damo and Dan over the weekend,

Damien Zarb, TQ and finished 1st overall in stock (using US spec chassis and foam tyres)
Dan Garcia, Q3 and finished third overall in stock (flexy car with rubber tyres)

Damo has proven that the car can work very well on foams,

What is the measurement of toe in with the rear hub carriers on this chassis (.5, 1.0, 1.5)? Also are they same as the Yokomo toe in blocks?

The rear hub carriers are HPI/Hotbodies, 0deg toe. The car has 3deg inboard toe-in with the standard suspension blocks (also HPI/Hotbodies parts). No Yokomo parts in the actual suspension components, just the shocks, diffs and driveshafts.

Thanks for the heads up. I met Jake and his father at TCS in Japan way back in '02. Both nice people.

Any build tips and advice for running the Scythe with foams on asphalt.
Just got our kits and the US spec chassis and top plate .Still have to get the ally bits .Would the ally bits make that much of a difference ???

Hi all

Got another outing this weekend on carpet / vtec24. What pistons / oil should I be using? Not done alot of carpet racing before so have no idea if there are any do's and don'ts for carpet.

Got my new horse power as well (thanks Jimmy) and looking for at least a B final this time.

Thanks
