Jason E actually had a custom sleeve to go over the rear drive cup. Chris T had them made, but only 2 Might have to try and make something on my own, seems like a damn good idea, and light weight.

Thanks man I've been told to ditch the RS car, but I found the right setup last night, easy to drive, and very fast.

Frank is painting up a Losi Alfa body for me, I've been told by just about everyone that I'll be faster with that than I am with the Stratus 2.0. I missed the 28 lap run by .69 seconds, but I was able to dip into the 10 second laptimes with the stocker

Randman - care to share that setup. I've been struggling with my RS. The stock was much better for me

Sure.

Front
40 wt
RS #3 piston
Yokomo Green spring
SSS Shock
bottom inner hole on inner camber link
middle hole on caster block
5'th hole in on shock tower
3'rd hole in on arm
-1.5 camber
gold swaybar
arms spaced 4mm back

Rear
40 wt
RS #3 piston
Yokomo Pink spring
SSS Shock
bottom inner hole on inner camber link
3'rd hole in on hub carrier
2'nd hole in on shock tower
outmost hole on rear arm
-1.5 camber
silver swaybar
arms spaced 4mm forward

It's twitchy as hell, and has a TON of steering, if you need to mellow it out a bit, you might space the rear arms backwards, I like a car that rotates very well, but most people can't drive my cars very well...

Randman it sounds like the Yoke is the car you are looking for. Seems like you have it dialed in well for the way you like to drive. You might just have to keep this one for awhile!!!!!

If you come into my pit, it's all Yokomo'd out, I'll bee staying with the SD. The only thing I'll be buying is a CGM as a "spare" car, pretty much decided that I'm not going to convert my RS, as it just works so damn well.
