I have problem defining words I just meant to say the arm would be higher when the ride height is readjusted.
So what's the main benefit of having 4 spacers at the rear?
more rear traction, higher roll center ? thanks.

If Dave is on duty still over, wherever he may be, the Navy could have him real busy or just have problems at home...hope things are going alright wherever he is. I would think he would let us know...

There's always access to the internet.... sounds like he did some people wrong and doesn't want to face the music. If i'm wrong then so be it.

Default xenon front c-hubs

Whats up with these uprights?Why were they desigened to limit droop the way they do?Is there a special arm so maximum droop can be achieved and be set by the droop set screw instead of the c-hub thickness limiting the travel?What are others running?Stock c hub?I know linger does for this reason.Anyone else have a solution?

just wondering, how long does it usually tke to get a kit/parts from the US to UK (and roughly how much for a kit )

thanks
matt
Matt,

Usually for a package to reach UK it only takes 4-5 days (sometimes less) I had customer receive packages in 3 days sometimes. Shipping will depend on the weight of the package, and for a car kit is usually around $45 USD by USPS EMS

Hi Guys,

Dave Berger as far as I know is taking a break from R/C. He gave it a 110% last year for us in developing the R2 chassis and setup, so I understand if he was burn out from that.

JDM on the otherhand sorta just disappeared. I did hear some stories about packages from him never arriving though...and maybe the navy does have him too busy at work right now to even be on here.

Hi Steve,

Any news about the locked diff for the Barracuda? Please advise how much they weight as well if possible.

Best regards,

Thumbs up

I've had a chance to try the spool, these things are the real deal. A fulls day racing and there are no signs of wear. I suggest though that everyone re-lube and replace the CVD pins... this part will wear out before anything else does. Also lube the dog bone pin that sits through the spool just a little. The one that I have is about 2 grams heavier than the one-way but mine was just a prototype.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Yes higher roll center and maybe alittle more rear traction..
In old school I use to added spacer in the rear to lower the chassis and lower the CG too...
But now day I wouldn't add four in the rear today r/c TC..

Hi everyone,

If I attach the camber link to the top location on the rear hub, what will be the general feeling? Will I increase or decrease rear traction?

Regards,
Mark

that should be lowering the roll center. It will roll less in cornering. On the other hand, too much roll will make the car feel twitchy.

Increase.

I run mine on the top all around. I also run indoors on carpet usually with an 8 turn. I definatly felt an improvement going with the upper holes.
