Flacks right about the front pushing and using 6d caster c-hubs. Here are a few other things to consider:

* Increase front camber to 2.0d
* Change front droop to 1mm over ride height. In my experience, anything less than 1mm actually compresses the front springs and in effect *stiffens* the front end more.
* The Checkpoints torque out of corners, and especially in sweepers, is going to want to plow the front end into the ground. This may be the case here in which you'll want to actually stand up the front shocks. If it is, you'll find that you won't actually lose front traction, but instead gain corner speed.

teamgp thanks. now should i use the 6d caster and 2d camber because as you have said previously that when the front wheels are turned the camber increases.

I have experienced pretty strong coning when running 6d caster and 2d camber in the front. By going to 1d camber the tires wear flat.

The amount of camber needed really depends on the surface grip and layout. Use the 6d caster c-hubs and then start with 2d camber. Check the tires after at least a 5 min run. If the inside diameter of the front tires is more than .1mm smaller than the outside diameter, then try 1.5d or even 1.0d. Pay attention to the handling (and lap times if you can) as well. Flat wearing tires are good, but faster lap times are better.

Default MULTI DIFF SPOOL

Could anyone that runs rubber on carpet give comments on the effects and feel of driving with the diff set to spool? I currently run mine in full oneway and may try the spool option. What should i expect if i go one run with the oneway and the next run with the spool?

I have been reluctant to use the spool as its hard on cvds if u hit... but lately i have not been hitting.... (much)

Thanks for any input

Last night one of my one way bearings came loose on my multi diff. Is there a way I can save it or do I need to get a new one.

I just raced rubber on carpet for the first time today with 19t motors and what a blast! I didn't try the spool, but absolutely loved the feeling of the layshaft one-way with a front diff. More off-power steering than a front diff or spool, but with more on-power steering than a regular one-way. I'd put it somewhere in between the standard one-way config and the solid one-way config of a multi-diff.

Not sure about that one. Try contacting RC America and they should be able to help either way.

Hi everyone,
After breaking the piggy bank Ive just got myself the 007 Eu , after owning the fk05 Im sure this one is a step up in performance and maintenance, as Ive heard and read. cant wait to get it set up and ready for the track.

Just a couple of questions for my new 007 buddies.

Ive found a good balance set up with my fk05, would converting the 007 with this setup be a good idea or just stick to the box/standard set up and make adjust from there?

Ive read the bearings have been a problem for some, should I replace them with different ones, or would it be OK if they are looked after as specified by xray? just dont want what has happened to others.

Does the fk05 battery strap fit the 007?

Is everyone comfortable running the standard Gold/Silver springs for asphalt racing? if not considering buying a spring set.

Is their any advise or something I should know about the car before taking it out on the track.? oh apart from being fast and having lot of fun .

Any advice would be appreciated.

thanks.

Cristian,

The fk05 set up (also using White Front & Yellow Rear springs)worked well for me on the EU 007 but I still went back to the kit set up (Silver/Gold) and worked from there.

About the bearings - just keep them clean and properly oiled and they should be ok.

Yes - The Fk05 battery strap does fit the T2.

2.4mm; pretty much equivalent to a 3/32.

Is a multi-diff a necessary component for rubber asphalt? More specifically, how useful/common is a one way?

Thanks

Dane, you don't see a whole lot of one-way setups for asphalt anymore...spools are just too easy and fast .
