Hey, I represent that statement! Actually, the SD is a nice car and when setup correctly and being wheeled by a good driver, will always be in contention as with most top of the line chassis.

As a matter of fact, an SD ruined my hat-trick opportunity of 3TQ's and 3Wins in a row by beating me last time out...giving me a 3/2 ratio Good job Jason E

Just my 2.598 yen

He posted that he was using Ray Speed Springs and Ray Speed cups. You use Yoke shock ends with the Ray Speed cups.

Well there's 2 yok shock ends...long and short...
with the RS cups use the short shock ends. and on the front C-block...use the upper hinge pin hole position.

You certainly would'nt get more play with long shock ends. I would think you would have to shorten the shock length or change the mounting holes for the rear shocks.

Looking for set up sheets for the following racing:


1) STOCK MOTORS-RUBBER TIRES ON CARPET

2) 19T MOTORS-FOAM TIRES ON CARPET

For the SD of course.


I have had trouble finding anything that was run indoors on carpet. Please email me or post the URLS here for me thanks.

I have a setup i came up wiht but im not 100% happy with it. I get the odd traction roll with what im runing. And i cannot get my oneway to work with the setups i have been using. I actually get understeer when using it.

Hi! I am using the short shock ends -- still can't get lower than 7mm. I am also using the lower hinge pin position on the front c-block. I can/will try going to the lower and see how that affects handling/height.

I read earlier on this forum that I may need to lenghthen my shocks to 64mm for the RS springs/cups in order to lower my ride height. Is this true? Still wondering if there is another way.

Cheers and thanks for your reply.

use the upper hinge pin mount on the C-hubs...that will bring you down to 4-5mm.

I tried that rear shock mounting a couple of weeks ago and it didn't suit my driving AT ALL. I really couldn't tell where it was hurting my times but the car just felt like crap.
Did you change springs and damping when you tried standing the shocks up? That's basically the same position as the hole I use on my Atheena towers and I think the car works great once you soften the damping and springs. I use #2 pistons and 35wt oil and blue springs. I feel this makes the car more stable and precise compared to the standard position and setup. With the softer damping it also rotates very well around the apex.

Thanks,

Kaizen you also have to trim the shock end 2 mm this will lower the perch to help with ride height.
