Did you tryed only one ST019 in the top deck? EU guys are using now only one ST019 there with FX alloy chassis.
Please also try softer swaybars.

Please let keep this as A800FX thread.... Thank you

yes... shelf queens..

but i show up to race, not just look pretty. a little more speed will not hurt this class at all.

at TQ RC Raceway we run 21.5.. quite zippy, controlable and tons of fun.

I didn't think about only 1 ST019 screw. So 1.0 front swaybar and 1.1 for the rear?

I went 4 long rear and negative 4 in the front and it a lot better. I tried 6 long and it didnt seem to rotate as well. Mayne like Oleg suggested.... Soften the sway bars amd try 6 Long again.

1 ST019 screw is very effective change. For sure you should try this as well these softer swaybars.
Please be sure that you are using the proper side of top deck with recess for ST019 head and the top deck should have possibility to swing around this single ST019 without tension. If this tension exists please add small ( ~0,1mm) chamfer on the inner edge of the recess.

I do have the top deck in the proper orientatio​​​​n with one screw removed. I originally had zero damper in the rear as our track is really smooth. It was suggested that I run some dampening. Im also curious about how much spring raye. Again, we run on black CRC carpet.

We use a 3300KV system in Australia for our FWD class (larger outdoor tracks). It's a tyre killer, more power isn't always better. That race looked plenty fast enough.
