Default Setting Droop....

Using RBF setup from the Reedy race...
the least amount of droop I can get on the car is around 6mm in front... the rear is no problem.
with the shocks built to around 60mm. and set on the outer holes on the tower and arms. How do you get it down to 3mm?

First run impressions....

Carries alot of corner speed alot more than my SD.
Seems to handle alot better.
Just waiting for Springs & sway bars to arrive...the car should get better. I'll have to definately shim the gears...it is very loud!
Will have it's first race this Sunday...

Droop screws Zombie. I use long set screws.
First measure the ride height, then lift the chassis until the setting wheels are just touching. the difference is the amount of droop. 3mm is a good baseline.

damnit, now I'm pissed. I was going to send my batts to Fukuyama, and send out a money order, and the damn street is completely blocked, and there is a 45 minute wait until it will open again so now I'm stuck at home for god knows how long

I just now got back from a 3 mile round trip. I hate how stupid they were to block the ENTIRE main street coming in and going out.

It's a conspiracy by SD, TC3, and Evo3 against R2 racers

Hey R2ers, just wanted to say the next time you need racing packs, check out Fukuyama Racing (Maj. Teeth's company) he uses turbomatchers, so all of the #'s are legit, he's rematching 5 of my packs right now so that I can get some more accurate #'s. But mainly Dan is a great guy to deal with, and is very helpful. I am working on his website right now, so online ordering will become very easy before long
