Have yall tried the Masami 2003 Reedy Race setup for the Spools? I think it works great on my CGM. I've had problems before with my CGM being too loose in the rear end and haven't had time to work it out due to my other car (TRF415). So I opted to try a "pro" setup and work from there. It worked out pretty good. So I'd suggest that as a starting point and tune from there.

Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

GILLES - UTIEH.

I have run a spool forover 6 months now, and just would not be without it.

If you run Rayspeed towers or CGM then run everything the same front and rear.
Shocks (front and rear) 35 oil, AE green springs and retainers. 2nd outermost hole on towers and wishbones. No front kick up. No rear anti squat. 7 deg. alloy caster blocks (C hubs). 1 deg. neg. front and 2 deg. neg. rear. Take off 22 tyres. Thicker roll bar in front.

I have been running the car this weekend with an 8 turn single and have been impressed with my lap times when compared to what the other good guys are doing, and my son's lap record.

If I can lap within around a second of his time then I know it's going well.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Yes, a spool is a locked diff.

It is recommended that you run the SS shock bodies for the Rayspeed chassis. Can someone tell me the difference between the SSS vs SS shock body. Is it completly different?


Thanks
SS shock bodies are good for low traction surface,SSS shock bodies are good for high traction surface. if you like the quick steering car, go for the SSS shock bodies, if you like the mild steering car or dont have enough traction go for the SS shock bodies.besides Shinnosuke Adachi (who developed RS chassis) told me the same thing, when I asked him about it .

Thanks for responding guys!

I did that trick by using the rayspeed spring retainers with the yokomo springs to adjust the height i wanted. But the car felt funny. I'll try and play around with the shock positions but i'll probably get the SS shock bodies because I race on medium grip tracks.

Thanks!

when adjusting ride, make sure you still have the same REAL amount of downtravel... else the car handling changes

Later,

Talking carpet setup adjustment

hey guys,
I ran on carpet at the weekend on foams and despite winning i have 2 problems. I run 35shore front tyres and 37Shore rears and my rears are wearing miles faster than my fronts, my fronts look nearly new were as my rears are degrading much too fast. Also i have alot of power oversteer or at least the car gets very loose on the power, meaning i have to be very soft on the throttle.

Any suggestions on how to fix these problems? Harder springs,softer? I have a good turn in and corner stability but the car just doesnt like coming out of corners properly

Oh and btw the tyres are Team Orion Fresh Kicks

thanks in advance

Kilruf, Joe,

Thanks again.

Gilles
