Yep, they're more forwarded on the RS.
I've been told that the motormount is updated on the RS for less twist in the chassie when accelerating.
I can't wait for tomorrow!

I run 2 up front and all 3 in the rear. The 'effect' is that you want the drivetrain to be as free as possible without having too much play or chipping diff gear teeth.

I think it depends on the mold of the gearcase itself, for example for mine in the rear, with 3 shims, it's really tight, with two it's perfect, perhaps it would be better with just one but I don' want to have too much play
I kept all the 3 in the front.
You have to make different try to find the good shimming

Just wanted to add that the RS chassis is extremely flexible. I would NOT run it on carpet with foam tires, I've tried and tried, and the car just isn't as fast as the competition (Xray, Losi etc.). Even the black chassis with double top decks, which is fairly stiff, had problems. However, with rubber tires and two top decks, I believe the RS should work great indoors. The RS chassis is really designed for rubber tires on asphalt, and this is where it should work the best. If you want to run foams, you should wait for the tub chassis, which will hopefully stiffen the car.

Speaking of foam setups, I haven't quite given up yet!! I just wanted to ask my question again, which is, if anyone knows: What is the difference, on carpet, between running the RS shock towers with long shocks (SS) versus running the old shock towers (rear and rear) with short shocks (SSS)?

graphite gearboxes help a lot.
have less lateral flex since I installed them with the RS chassis

OK! Knowledge about the SD just flows into my head

The thing is, here in Sweden we only race on rubber tirres in the big cups and championships. But we have a series in the area where i live in which we are allowed to run whatever tires we want.

Felxible cars is real good for the Schumacher White tires we race in the serie i race..

By the way, what is the internal ratio on the SD? In the setup sheets it says 2.35:1
Is that true?

Wow... Just got back from running my SD today and what a difference... I switched tp the Suzuki knuckles (think I got the last pair), a modified nitro TC3 bumper and no more broken C Hubs today... I did snap a rear diff screw, have no idea how and a stock ballcup that was already on its way out...


How the heck is everyone keeping their batteries from sliding out??? If someone wacked me or I hit a board just right the battery went flying...

As for the set-up sheet posted a few posts back... With AE yellow fronts and copper rears it worked beautifully... I did use a shim under the front. rear suspension mount, effectively giving the car 0 deg antidive... But otherwise I set the car up almost exactly...

Tobee makes some neat little plastic pieces that mount on the side of the chassis to keep your batteries from ejecting themselves in a hard wreck. You can also go to a crafts store and get some thin foam strips and glue them on the sides of the battery slots. Either way will work but I use both just to make sure

The RS motor mount does mount differently than stock, but I didn't know that the reason behind it was to reduce twist...

Did you notice a difference by going from the stock knuckles to the Suzuki knuckles performance wise?
