Ok guys, our local track just got a fresh repave with a totally new type of surface then before and everyone is having to change setups

my setup.

Front

Toe: 1deg out
Ride height: 5mm
Camber: -2
Kick/Anti-dive: 0
Caster: 4deg
Droop: 3mm above RH
Roll center: high
Arm spacing: Middle
Shock position: 2
Steering Rack: 2
Spindle Ackerman: 1
Camber Link: 3
Arms: Long
Front drive: spool
Diff: high
Oil: 35wt
Spring: 17.5

Rear

Toe: 3deg
Ride Height: 5mm
Droop: 3mm above RH
Camber: 2 deg
Anti/Pro squat: 0
Hub: std
Roll center: high
Arm spacing: middle
Shock Position: 2/out
Camber Link: 6b
Diff Height: low
Oil: 35wt
Spring: 12.5

Now what i need is more steering all the way around. running mod the car is just flat out stuck and with a little more steering this thing will be dialed.
Any Ideas as what to try?
what will switching to hole#1 on the steering rack do?

thanks for any help

Try going to 45 front oil and 40 rear oil with 15 lbs springs in the rear. If it still doesn't turn enough go to hole #1 on the steering rack. If you go to hole #1 you will need to lenghten your steering link. What switching to location #1 on the rack does is increase ackerman.

You also might search this thread for one of Larry's setups and try it just as he has it. If you don't use it just how he has it, it won't work right....

I had a couple questions in regards to the Type R. I previously used to have a Phi and am looking to possibly get a Type R or the E4. I want a car with the lipo down the middle.

1. On the Phi, a lot of people were switching to the Tamiya Shocks. Is this type of change done for the Type R by any racers?

2. I noticed that the steering has a dual crank system. Anyone tried to modify this into a single crank system?

Any pros/cons compared to the E4 would be very beneficial as well. I am not worried about part availability since the track that I run at doesnt have a hobby shop.

venturaDC,

change front shock oil to 40wt

you might want to try a low roll centre at the rear with 17.5lbs springs and use standard camber links upfront with short neck ball stud.

and run stabilizers

1. They should fit, but no one seems to deem them necessary, the stock shocks are good and don't leak.

2. There is no room, the battery is too close to the servo.

3. Don't know anyone with an E4, can't say

Thanks for the help Mike!

What is the difference between the RCDs and LVDs? Which ones should you run on the front and rear for carpet rubber?

difference is LCD's can move freely than the RCD's because there are 2 joints between the driveshaft and the axle plus it eliminates the chatter while the axle and drive shaft is on an angle.

LCDs - front
RCDs - rear

I tried the RCD's up front not too long ago and the car just felt odd, it definitely didn't have the extra steering that it was supposed too, and the car just didn't flow well at all.

I finally got the time to get the car together. I hope to get some free time to dial it in on the track next week. Sorry blurry iphone image.

Talking

Without having to go through 280+ pages, can someone tell me the P/N for the optional steel LiPo battery tray?
Thanks

Thanks you for the number. I did try to look it up on their site, but could not find it under the normal option/hop-up parts.
I went back after getting this number and found it using the "LiPo tray" as a wild card search.
Thanks again

schumacher makes the cs-27 takeoffs, but you can get the premounted jaco rubberz, muchmore sweeps, and rp-30's if i remember correctly.
