Have you got many long span setups you've worked on then? or do you tend to prefer the mid span?
What are your general starting points? like do you tend to have a stiffer spring at one end, or thicker shock oil? any commonly used shock positions?

The Long Spans so nice, I wouldn't even be trying the MiD-Span if it wasnt for this funky banked oval circuit we have at SoCal, At every outdoor track I've been to the Long arm is supreme.

Short arm and Mid arm is King indoors...

but the Long Arm set up is King out doors or on big Tracks..

You have been there a while

My setup didn't change too much from what you had, with the brushless motor, the car has horrible understeer. The HPI springs were too stiff, and the car pushes into corners, and exited them loose, I went down to a 1.4x5.5 in the rear, and a 1.4x5.75 in the front. Moved the front shocks inward 1 hole on the shock tower, and moved the rear shocks inward 1 hole on the rear A-Arms to try to get the car a little more aggressive into the turns. Dave's best laptime was a 10.2, and I hit a 10.4 in my main, so I was just a little off. I was actually having a great second qualifier, about 3 secs off of 1'st and 2'nd, but one of the bearings seazed in my knuckle (for the second time that night) and caused so much friction that the rim melted off of the axle and rolled away... I started 6'th in the main, and after a rough start went about a half lap down to the leaders (Steve, Dave, and Rod) by the end of the race Steve and Dave put me 1 lap down, but I'm not frustrated with how I did, once I get used to the understeer, or find a fix for it, I should be able to keep up with them. Dave and I had an awesome practice run together, so it gives me hope

I'm going to buy some stiffer springs, my stiffest was a 1.4x5.5, I think I can get the car a little bit better with a bit stiffer.

With the RS did you have to change the spring cups? RS springs are longer...
let us know how the Yok caps and RS bladders work out... I've got a set waiting to be installed.

On my SD...I had to use the AE spring cups and ballends to make the RS spring work.... soon after.. RaySpeed released their spring cups to fit on Yok shock ends.

I'm gonna stick with all alex racing, it makes it so much harder to identify the springs mixing them with different brands...

How did you get the Yok shock caps and RS bladders to work, did you modify anything?
