I'm running the new Rayspeed shock towers front and rear. On the front i have changed over the camber link position so it sits where the king pin used to be by using ball stud ZS-007F on the C hub. What I have heard is that when running this setup I need to change the king pin collar position, by removing the top one and move the bottom one so it sits in side the C hub and use the top hole where the C hub and wishbone are connected.
Does anyone know if this is right or can you use the original configuration and just change the king pin to the ball stud

Thanks
Any Ideas

Not sure why you would want to take the link out that far, you would need to use the eyelet style ball cup to help clear the inside of the wheel. Not sure you would need to put the hinge pin in the upper hole on the c-hub to help with clearance?

I am driving a Yokomo SDW with 27T Stock Motor and CS-27 tires.
The car runs great but i am looking for good tire inserts. Runtime in Germany is 7 minutes (on Carpet), so the tire overheat with the wrong insert.
Does anyone know a good tire Insert for carpet racing with CS-27 tires?

IMO the HPI red is the best b/c it creates less air gap which I think lets you run longer before they heat up.

i just ran carpet this past weekend with the sdw, with a stock motor 27t, and cs-27 PREMOUNTED tires, the only change i made was to lay the front shocks in one hole and the rear shocks up one hole, i had a ton of steering and the rear was planted, i raised the front of the body one hole on the body mounts to take away a little steering, i was using the yok "e" body. TQ and won BTW.

We are running Sorex A-Firms inserts, Sorex 28s in front and 24s in the rear. By far this combination seems the best. This insert fills the tire and is extreamly consistant. Tire overheating should not be much of a problem with this insert. I think Matt Howard was running some Xenon Blue inserts that also worked very well last carpet season. We used HPI reds but changed to the Sorex Firm A insert and lap times improved.

Pops are the sorex firm A close to the hpi reds. Im running take off 22 on yok wheels with HPI red inserts, and Im trying to find a combo in the sorex that is compareable.

I purchased some sorex 28 and put some HPI red inserts in on Yok wheels, I had to wrap the wheel three times to get the same air gap as the take off 22 I mounted. Do you think they will work. Im getting ready for a big off road race and havent had a chance to try them out.

I think I went overboard!!! My CGM comes in at 1590gms with a dummy tronsponder. Pretty heavy!! But I guess acceptable with all those bling blings! To think I have all the Ti stuffs and lightweight parts! Oh well, maybe the Lieghtweight CGM will lower it down a bit and Ti shock mounting screws! Don't want to remove all those blue parts!!!

I ran Xenon grey's for club racing and Xenon Reds for the big races since the reds are slightly bigger.

I looked out in my box but I think I threw away the packaging. If you go to ebay and type in HPI red inserts they should pull up. You can also go to towerhobby to find them.
